Day Out Splat! – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Falls From the Sky


Day Out Splat! – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Falls From the Sky

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 4/19


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fall from the sky.” Write about anything that falls from the sky–real, imagined, or idiomatic. Have fun!


Our day out almost started with a splat falling from the sky!

Yeah, my daughter and I had another day out, trying to find some yard sales, then going to the library book sale, then to eat lunch. My grand-daughter didn’t come with us this time, as she stayed home with her dad.

First yard sale we found nothing good…some old toys, knick-knacks, purses…blah, blah, blah. Then, when we got back in the car after buying nothing, my daughter told me the toys had mice poop all over them. Ewwww! People…clean up your junk before trying to sell it!

So, we drive off, and about a block away it happened…the splat that fell from the sky. Bird poop landed on the windshield…right on my side! Ugh! It did make a splat noise, too. Well, we were hysterically laughing and grossing out over that for awhile.

The library book sale was okay, but crowded as all get out…with half the people coughing and/or sneezing all over the place. Wonderful….

But, we did find quite a few used books to buy.

Next, lunch…at almost 3 p.m. We were starving by then, the food was good, and we enjoyed it. (today though, my daughter said either that food or something else had made her really sick overnight)

Back at home…time for a big ‘ol thunderstorm…loud thunder, bright lightning, and of course falling from the sky was buckets of rain and some hail stones. Splat!

What all has been falling from your sky?


Here’s a picture of a giant, brown, carved wood bear. He is standing on his back legs so he’s really tall, has a fish in his paws, and a red bandana around his neck. He’s in front of glass windows in the lobby of the restaurant we went to, which is a seafood place.

My Day Out


My Day Out


Hey, I’m back from my day out on Friday. We all had a great time…my daughter, my grand-daughter, and I.

Here’s what all we did:

First we tried to find some yard sales. There was only two that sounded half-way good, and we did find them. But, they didn’t have much, even though they advertised as being ‘huge – can’t miss – you will not believe it’ and such as that…they all lie. We looked around while my grand-daughter played with the little kids that lived at the one place. At least she had good fun. I bought a shirt for $2.00…my daughter got nothing, nor did my grand-daughter.

So on to the next one – an estate sale where you go inside. To me everything was too expensive, so didn’t buy anything. They got kids books and a stuffed toy.

We drove around looking for more sales, but couldn’t find any.

In the car, from the very first, we start with the storytelling, jokes, games, and singing. All are orchestrated by my grand-daughter. She’s five years old.

Today she said she’s Princess Leia from Star Wars. She loves all things Star Wars, and began a long story about the cantina, and the characters, etc.

Next up was a singing contest between us three. She gives points for who sings the best, and of course she gets the most points, because ‘we’ don’t sing it smooooth enough.

Then we do some knock knock jokes, and rhyming words, and some I spy with  my little eye games. We do have so much fun!

So, we were ready for lunch at a burger place. Yum!

Then, off to my aunt’s house out in the country (or sort of). She has 5 acres, but housing areas are all surrounding there. It was good to visit for a couple of hours, and my cousin’s son (my first cousin once removed) happened to be there, too. He lives on the property, too. We got to see one of his puppy dogs, named Wittle, but the big dogs were inside the fence, so we didn’t go back there. He plans on getting more chickens, too. We walked all around the house and all, looking at the jackrabbits, and prairie dogs, too. I took some pictures. Later, we looked through a scrapbook of antique or vintage old photos that my aunt had made of the relatives. She also gave me a whole sack of paperback/hardback books she was finished with.

My grand-daughter also gave us a little piano concert, just plinking around on the keys. She loves being the center of attention!

After that, Miss Princess wanted some ice cream, so we went to a place for that, and then it was after 5 p.m. so was time to go home.

The wind was blowing so much, my hair was just twirling around. I checked my phone’s weather thing, and it said it was only 17 mph, but I bet it was more, because it was almost blowing us down!

Anyway, I didn’t get home until around 6 p.m. … fixed us a TV dinner, and watched some TV. Started reading, fell asleep, until the rain beating on the windows woke me up a little later. Finally got back to sleep.

So, that was my day. We’ll probably do it all again next week. 🙂

Here’s some of what I saw…

Red roses & green leaves

Old tractor

Jack rabbit in the distance

Brown & white puppy dog named Wittle

Bleached white cow skulls by a yellow & green wild plant

Prairie Dog … he was yip yip yipping at us
