GUESS – for STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SATURDAY

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 12/17

***

Today’s prompt word for SOCS is ‘guess’. To join in, and also see other entries, click the above link.

***

Guess what? I don’t know what to write about, today.

Guess what? It is pouring down rain, at the moment. It wasn’t a few minuets ago, when I went out to feed the cats. Maybe they got a bite or two before it started raining.

Guess what? Family from out of state are here visiting.

Guess what? Whatever we find to do today, it will be done in the rain…unless it stops raining.

Guess what? I’ve already had my morning coffee, and now I’m drinking iced tea.

Guess what? I probably should go get something on besides my pjs, in case we find something to do, or somewhere to go…in the rain.

Guess what? I wish you all a lovely day! 🙂

We had a weird week, so it was good for taking some odd-ball photos.

First, we saw some cows, close up! Then, we were almost home, and had a tire blow-out. Turns out there were 2 of them, one on each side. Finally got them fixed.

Last evening we had a much needed downpour of rain, and some hail. The rain running down on the glass storm door made for some interesting effects.

Then, for fun, I was trying to make shadows on the wall. Looks kinda creepy! 🙂

Weekly Weather: Rain

Today’s topic is Rain. Guess it was a good time for it, as it has started to rain here today. The first 3 photos I took looking out my back door, the kitchen window, with my plant, and another of the back storm door. You can see rain droplets on there, along with some fun stickers my grand-son put on the glass. 🙂 The last one was from a while back, when we had very heavy rain. Our yard and street flooded. It looks like a brown river flowing down the street in front of the house.  All these were taken on my iphone.

Ok, so it’s Saturday, and we have the SOCS post. Today we were challenged to start and end the post with a two-letter word. Mine was ‘Ok’ to begin, and I’ll have to get to the end, to find out what the last 2 letter word will be, because how will I know beforehand?

Nothing is going on here this morning. It rained overnight. We needed the rain. It rained off and on all night, and hailed at least 3 different times. I know, because it woke me up.

I think we decided we want tacos for supper. We have all the stuff to make them with already. Only we call this kind of tacos we make … “flop-os” … flopo’s …flop -ohs …well, anyway, they are an old family recipe that we like. Here’s how it goes.

You get some corn tortillas (the floppy kind) … cook some hamburger meat, add picante or hot sauce, and lots of ketchup! Then fry the tortillas for a few seconds, (I like to drain & pat dry with a paper towel to get some of the grease off) , then fill floppy taco shell with meat, and any toppings you want, such as lettuce, onion, cheese, more picante, and maybe some avocado. That’s it. They are easy, good, and messy, so have lots of napkins or paper towels handy. 🙂

Now, what’s the 2 letter word I can end this with? Bye? nope, it has 3 letters, hmmm, 🙂

Guess that about does it!

Have a fun Saturday!

PROMPT NIGHT – WHEN BESOTTED WITH GREEN – “ANTICIPATION”

Standard

***

field-847647__180

ANTICIPATION

Ceasing my toil of tilling the soil,

I look above to the westering skies…

Roiling, boiling, heavy hanging,

Gathering gargoyles meet my eyes.

Clutching my clothing, a certain knowing,

A storm is coming nigh.

A swipe of brow, being chilled now,

A gusty breeze blows by.

Anticipating that those snakey tendrils of

Life-giving rain

Will coil around and down to roots of tiny shoots.

Drinking their fill of the ensuing rill,

They writhe and rise for the

Greening of the land.

OCTPOWRIMO – POEMS – DAY # 9 – ELEMENTS

Standard

OCTPOWRIMO – POEMS – DAY # 9 – ELEMENTSIMG_20150928_151453

We were asked to consider the elements…Water, Fire, Air, Earth, Metal, Ice, etc. We could also relate how we relate to them. I’ve done this two part poem…one part about Earth, the other part about Water.

Have you ever experienced a Haboob? It is a massive, intense wall of dust/sand, that advances across the Earth, mostly in arid regions. Being here in west Texas, the climate is very dry. I’ve been in lots of sandstorms, some worse than others, but the giant wall of dirt coming toward our city is just amazing to see. You can see it coming, rolling, towering up into the sky. Most times the air is very still before, and then it hits, packing lots of wind. It can last for quite a while, turning the sky into brown or red, gritty blowing dirt. It gets everywhere, seeping in through cracks in doors and windows, and even getting into your mouth and eyes.

The second part of the poem, is about Water…namely, the rain. After being so dry, and dusty, rain is very much needed in this area. It is refreshing, and quenches the parched Earth, fills dangerously low lakes and ponds, and people sometimes run out in the rain, rejoicing.

Haboob – An intense dust storm

Petrichor – (Pet-ri-ker) – the Earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil after a long dry spell.

~

ELEMENTS of EARTH and WATER

Mother Earth is on the move,

She blows across the land…

Her winds of change create haboobs,

Those towering walls of sand.

~

Liquid drops fall from the sky,

A tempest rain revives her…

For me, I get a natural high,

And a refreshing petrichor.
