Striking – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Directions 

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 2/2020

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “directions.” Find a household cleaner/bottle of shampoo/something in the freezer/anything you can find with instructions on it, then copy down a single direction (just one) on how to use/cook/etc. your chosen thing, and make it the first line or word of your post. Then keep writing whatever comes out. Have fun!

***

For today’s SOCS we are to look around the house to find an item with instructions or directions on how to use the item. Then take one line from that and write something. Thanks for the fun prompt, Linda!

Close cover before striking.

That’s probably a good idea if you are striking something. If it has a cover, then please close it before hitting it. That way when it shatters, the little pieces won’t fly around everywhere. It could hit your face, or eyes, or fall on the floor where you’ll slip and fall.

I’m thinking of what I strike around here. I strike a big block of ice all the time. I freeze water in big blocks, then pound/strike it with a meat pounder thing real hard a bunch of times. Then I have crushed ice.

I put the block of ice in a plastic zipper bag, and zip it closed first. Maybe not a ‘cover’, but I do close it so the pieces won’t fly out and strike me! It’s actually fun to strike the ice – bam bam bam – it’s loud! 🙂

I got the instruction/direction for the prompt from a little book of matches. That was the only directions besides don’t give to children. I don’t use matches very often, though.

Hope y’all are having a great Saturday! It’s hot here – it was 101 degrees yesterday, and will be around the same today.

March Squares – Spikes # 30

March Squares – Spikes # 30

Our penultimate spiky square

Today’s photo is of spiky ice formations.

I make tea for drinking iced tea later in the day, and put it in an old Mr. Coffee glass pot. I put it in the refrigerator. Then, I notice sometimes that ice has formed on the top of the liquid. It looked pretty interesting, so I took some photos, then zoomed it in closer.

I think the ice makes some really pretty designs, which looks pointy and spiky. 🙂

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Water

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Water

***

Here’s my entry for Cee’s B & W Photo Challenge with the subject of ‘water’.

What we have here is a box of water. I freeze water to make ice in these plastic boxes. Then the next picture, is the frozen water, all chunked up (I use an ice pick).

Next is a river in Missouri, as seen from the window of a plane as we flew over it.

Last, are some bottles of sparkling, flavored water. These were on the shelf at the grocery store.

This week for our photo challenge, it is freezing rain. Last week was fog. I didn’t have a fog photo, and not sure this is freezing rain, but this is what happens after the freezing rain. Ice covers everything! 🙂
