Reminders – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Empty/Hollow

Reminders -Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Empty/Hollow

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 19/18

***

It’s Saturday, so it’s time for another SOCS, hosted by Linda G. Hill. Thanks, Linda!

Here’s the prompt: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “empty/hollow.” Use one, use both, entirely up to you. Enjoy!

***

Empty and hollow reminds me of this past Thursday and most of Friday. My computer went out, and had to be in the repair shop. I was feeling all empty and hollow because I couldn’t do my usual blogging on those days.

Empty and hollow reminds me of Halloween. That’s my favorite holiday, and sometimes we’d get a big pumpkin and hollow out the inside seeds until it was empty, making for a great jack-o-lantern.

Empty and hollow reminds me of the TV show, “Sleepy Hollow”. It was on a couple of years ago, and may have ran for a couple of seasons, but it was a really good show. I watched them all, discussed it with a friend, and we were both sad that they didn’t make any more episodes.

Empty and hollow reminds me of something my Dad wrote a long time ago. Going through old papers, from his own school days, I came across a little notebook. In it he had written a report (I think that’s what it was), on the short-story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”. Pretty cool!

Empty and hollow reminds me of finishing up my fan fiction story, “Two Souls: Into the Fire”. I loved writing it so much, that when the ending came, I felt all empty and hollow…and sad that it was done.

Empty and hollow reminds me of turning the last page on a book you’ve really enjoyed reading. I always wish it would go on some more. I don’t like being in between books to read. I have plenty on my TBR stacks, but still you’re feeling in the last book’s world, and it’s hard to get going on a brand new read, hoping it will be just as good.

Empty and hollow reminds me of waiting a whole week until the next SOCS prompt is revealed. 🙂

Until next time, wishing you a lovely weekend and week to come, filled with fun, laughter, good times, and relaxation, but not empty and hollow.

Jigsaw Puzzle Update

Jigsaw Puzzle Update

***

It’s been awhile since I’ve mentioned the jigsaw puzzles we work, and we are still going strong on completing them. Here’s how it’s been going.

I believe all these can be enlarged by clicking the photo.

***

We just finished this one today. It took a long time, as all those sunflowers were pretty hard to do. There were so many yellow and yellow/orange pieces!

***

This one was pretty cool. It was a glow in the dark one, and the middle photo shows it actually glowing.

 

***

This one was fun to do. The hardest part was the rug.

***

This one was interesting. It was fun to work, but kind of hard. At first we thought the picture and the puzzle pieces just didn’t match up, but in the end it did. There was a little booklet, with a story of a murder mystery, and after working the puzzle we were to find out who did it.

***

This one was fun, and not too awfully hard to work. Lots of kitty cuteness!

***

Here’s some more cat puzzles. I can’t remember in which order we did these. Seems we’ve bought so many puzzles featuring cats!

    

***

Here’s one that’s not about cats. It has toys and games from a long time ago. It was fun to see some that we had when we were kids.

***

I liked this one a lot, because it was all about spooky things of Halloween!

***

This one is the newest one, which we started today. So far, so good. I’ve already got most of the outside border done.

***

So, that’s pretty much up to date, if I didn’t forget one. Hope you enjoyed looking! 🙂

It’s approaching that time again

***

This one is for my NanoPoblano post, and is also a regular feature here. I was reading the next few entries to my Diary, and what a funny thing…my last post was for the ‘Would You Rather’ question about wasps, and I can tell you exactly when I got stung by one! It’s written down in my diary entries! 🙂

***

***

For those who haven’t seen my Dear Diary posts before, a little explanation. This is my actual diary I wrote in for a full year, when I was 10 years old. I wrote every day, sometimes a lot, sometimes a little, sometimes funny, sometimes boring, but it was all recorded. Names of relatives are only first initials with relationship in parentheses. I’ve typed the entries just as I wrote them, mis-spellings and all, but corrected in parentheses. More posts of Dear Diary can be found by using catagories, or search box. Hope you enjoy reading my childhood diary! 🙂

Share Your World – 2016 Week 51 – Favorite Holiday Edition

***

It’s time for more questions from Cee, and answers from me! 🙂

***

What is your favorite holiday?

I do like all the holidays, the big ones, and the little ones. My favorite though, is Halloween! It’s been my favorite ever since I can remember. I like the atmosphere of spookiness, the costumes, the parties, and the decorations. I’d have my whole house decorated as Halloween all year, if I could.

blogger-image-878065477What types of food is associated with your holiday?

Candy, mostly, for the trick or treat kids that come by the house. Of course I have some to eat, also.

Do you travel for your holiday?

No, not anymore. I used to roam the neighborhood when I was a kid, and then later taking my girls around the neighborhood for trick or treats. One year we were visiting my in-law’s in another city, and my SIL gave a party for all the kids. First we took them to get candy at a few houses, then came back for party food and games. It was pouring down rain that night, too.

Is it a religious or spiritual holiday?

No, not for me.

Is there a gift exchange?

Sometimes, we give our kids a Halloween card, and a few fun things that are Halloween themed.

How long does the celebration last?

Just the one night. However, the build-up and anticipation for all the fun begins way earlier, like the first of the month. There were always lots of discussions about what costume you’d be wearing, and lots of changing of minds. I used to sew their costumes from a pattern, too, so that took awhile before the big day.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Grateful I’m pretty much over being sick. Looking forward to Christmas celebrations with daughters, and their families.:)

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! 🙂
