I took this photo today at about 11:35 a. m. with my camera pointed straight up at the sun. It was so bright and dazzling, I didn’t know if the picture even turned out, but this is what I got. The white hot sunlight throwing rays of light through the bare branches of our tree, all against the clear blue sky.

Today our prompt word is ‘busy’,

I guess we were a little busy today, as we went out to eat at lunch time, then to the grocery store. But, that’s a normal kind of day, so maybe not that busy.

Busy sounds like Buzzy a little bit. Reminds me of bees buzzing around – bzzzzzzy bee!

Here’s a couple of purple flowers with  bees that I took quite awhile ago. The bees are very busy gathering pollen from the pretty flowers.

Just No – Stream of Consciousness Saturday & Just Jot It January # 25

 

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2020 Daily Prompt – Jan. 25th

***

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “last call.” Talk about the enterprise (sales or service) conducted by the last phone call you received from a business you’re not associated with (i.e. your workplace), or talk about that phone conversation itself. Have fun!

***

Well, what we have here is a failure to communicate. That’s right – I don’t communicate with outside businesses that call on my phones. They have no business to call me umpteen times a day for no reason that interests me.

We have caller I. D. and if I don’t recognize the number I zap it off as fast as I can. It’s so annoying.

It’s just as bad when I get random text messages on my phone from weird places – like this one –

The messages say they’d like to sell our property, and sometimes they have our address, and sometimes it’s an address we’ve never heard of or lived at before. Then I have to take the time – a whole second maybe to delete the messages, because there’s always more than one.

On the phone ones, I have no idea what they’re selling, and even if I did know, I wouldn’t buy it from some random caller.

Just no – I will not communicate with any of them.

Today’s prompt comes to us compliments of Wendy. Thanks, Wendy!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 24th, 2020, is “change.” Use the word “change” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

***

The first thing I think of for the prompt word ‘change’ is money – as in coins.

Seems like we always have some loose change around here. I can usually find a few coins in the bottom of my purse. Sometimes I find one or two nickles or dimes in the washing machine – because somebody didn’t empty their pockets before their clothes got washed.

I have a thing about finding loose change, either pennies, or dimes, or quarters out in a parking lot. I always pick them up, too.

I also have several little change purses. I keep a lot of coins in them, because when I go to yard sales it is good to have some change to pay for small items I might want. Sometimes though I put a change purse somewhere , then forget I put it there until some other day, then I find it again — yay! lots more change!

Sometimes we’ve saved up lots of change coins to later cash in for dollars, or to save up for a fun meal at a restaurant. It’s gotten up to around $200 before.

I like change – how about you? 🙂

Just Jot It January # 23 – Drive

Daily Prompt – JusJoJan the 23rd, 2020

Janet gave us our prompt word for today. Thanks so much, Janet!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 23rd, 2020, is “drive.” Use the word “drive” any way you’d like. Have fun!

***

Trying to think of something to say about ‘drive’ or ‘driving’.

I never liked to drive very much, though I did it for years. Makes me too nervous. I don’t even remember the last time I actually did any driving at all … maybe for a year or two.

There isn’t anywhere I want to drive to anyway, and the mister drives us to the grocery store, or to a restaurant. I’d much rather be the passenger so I can look out the windows, and take photos of things I see. I do a lot of ‘drive-by photos’.

Do you remember those old TV shows, where the family would get in their car and go for a drive – just to drive around – maybe on a Sunday? I can’t remember us ever doing that. Maybe people stopped doing that when gas prices went up so much.

I do remember one time my sister and I took a  26 mile drive around the newly constructed loop around the city. That was just for fun. Back in the day parts of it was way out in the boonies, but now the city has built up all around and past the loop. Now I cringe whenever we drive on the loop, as people drive so awful and so many wrecks happen on it.

Well, that’s about all I have for today. Have a good one! 🙂

One-Liner Wednesday/JusJoJan the 15th, 2020 – Aesthetic

Anagrams are fun!

***

An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of a different word or phrase, typically using all the original letters exactly once

***

One of the first games I ever played when I was a kid, was Anagrams. It had square tiles you chose at random, and tried to make words from them.

Here’s a few that turn out cool. I read them in a book. 🙂

  • Astronomers … becomes Moon Starers
  • A Decimal Point … becomes I’m a dot in place
  • New York Times … becomes Monkey’s Write
  • The eyes … becomes They see

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 21st, 2020, is “scraggly.” Use the word “scraggly” any way you’d like. Have fun!

Scraggly

irregular; uneven; jagged.
shaggy; ragged; unkempt.
***
***
Fun, Funny, Clown, Silly, Party, Happy
Scraggly Baggly was a mess
The hair on his head grew less and less
His scraggly beard was sketchy and shaggy
The clothes he wore were woefully baggy
Yet still he had a grin on his face
With his teeth in no particular place
For his friends they urged at their behest
To straighten up – a reasonable request
And so in time with lots of work
Scraggly Baggly did not shirk
He turned into a handsome lad
Now all concerned were very glad
By combing his hair, and trimming his beard
It wasn’t as bad as he had feared
His teeth were straightened and shiny white
Now Scraggly looked and felt just right.

Just Jot It January # 20 – Humor

Just Jot It January # 20 – Humor

Daily Prompt – JusJoJan the 20th, 2020

Today’s prompt comes to us compliments of Sadje. Thank you so much, Sadje!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 20th, 2020, is “humor.” Use the word “humor” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

***

There was a question one time in some game or other that asked what did we consider the best personality trait to have. I answered a sense of humor. I still believe that.

If you’re able to see the funny side of life, you will enjoy it more, I think. Even if something goes wrong, if you have a sense of humor, you can find something about it that is worthy of at least a smile, a giggle, or outright laugh. It sure beats getting stressed or angry about the situation.

I don’t discount truly horrible or devastating situations – there is a time for sadness, grief, and anger which are not in any way a laughing matter. And it would be terribly wrong to laugh at, or at the expense of others misfortunes.

But in everyday happenings, just try to see the humor in it, and keep on going, as happiness and humor go hand in hand. It’s uplifting and good for you. 🙂

Here’s a funny from our calendar page today:

gobbledygook – wordy and generally unintelligible jargon

galimatias

A confused and often pretentious mixture esp. of words…gobbledygook.

***

I hear your wall of words

They make no sense to me

You sound like a turkey

Making gobbledy

Maybe other birds

Know just what you mean

When you speak your galimatias

I just want to shush the mush

Of which I’m not so keen

So take a page from a dictionary book

Stop talking all that gobbledygook

Just Jot It January # 17 – Jade

Daily Prompt – JusJoJan the 17th, 2020

***

Jade is the prompt word brought to us by MB. Thank you so much, MB!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 17th, 2020, is “jade.” Use the word “jade” any way you’d like. Have fun!

***

jad·ed
/ˈjādəd/
adjective
  1. tired, bored, or lacking enthusiasm, typically after having had too much of something.
    “meals to tempt the most jaded appetites”

I don’t really like this word, but I suppose we are jaded when it comes to thinking up something to buy at the grocery store, or what to fix for meals. It’s always the same old things, and we are tired of it all.

I know there are recipes everywhere you look, but we don’t even like to read them. We don’t want to buy a bunch of ingredients that we’d probably only use once, on the off chance the food wouldn’t be any good, anyway.

So, we stick to making whatever is easy and that we know is good – it’s just we are tired of eating it.

We are jaded.
