Cat TV. Television programs for cats? Yes, there is such a thing.

Here’s the video tape I bought a long time ago, so the cats could watch little critters on the screen.

Only Cricket loved watching it. She’d stay there for a really long time, and occasionally reach up her paw to try and catch something. The other cats we had at the time, paid no attention to it at all. Even now, Cricket will watch some TV, just regular whatever is on. We don’t have a VCR anymore, so can’t play her video any more, though.

For me, the TV is on all the time, but I don’t really watch much. I’m sitting right by it, and glance over once in awhile. The mister watches stuff, and flips the channel every few minutes/seconds…if there is a commercial on…flip, flip, flip…

We do like the old black & white sitcoms though, and will try to find those, like Andy Griffith. Sometimes we will watch more recent programs, but they are all re-runs of things like Everybody Loves Raymond. We’ve seen them all over & over. Still funny.

I didn’t even know we have Netflix until the other day. I don’t know why we have it, guess it just comes with our cable? We looked at the menu thing, didn’t see anything we wanted to watch. We don’t really watch many movies, anyway.

So, that’s it for today SOCS & Just Jot It January.

Wishing y’all a super Saturday! 🙂

Motive – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Motive – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 9/17

Thanks, Linda!

We’re supposed to write this as a stream of consciousness type of, well…writing. That means to type whatever comes into your mind, just as it comes, with no planning of what you’re going to say. You can correct misspellings, but basically, that’s it. The problem is, trying to think of something that has to do with the prompt word. Today’s is ‘motive’.

The only thing I can think of…well, there are 2 things.

Motive rhymes with Votive. That’s votive, as in candles? Votive candles are little ones, I think. I have a lot of candles, votive, and other kinds, bigger ones. I like them, but almost never light them. I would probably forget to blow them out if we went somewhere, and I wouldn’t want something to catch fire.

The other thing I thought about is the word, motivate. The mister is always saying that.”Let’s motivate!” This is to say, let’s get a move on, get in the car, let’s go. Him saying that never actually made any of us motivate any faster, though. In fact, the more we are urged to hurry up, the slower it makes us, because it interrupts what we’re doing.

Motive, Votive, Motivate. I thought of that song by INXS, called “Mediate”. That is the one where they hold up all the different rhyming words to the lyrics. I watched it, and not one of those words were motive, or motivate. Almost all their sign words had the ending rhyme as ‘…ate’, but not motivate. Oh, well.

Guess I’d better motivate on with the day. Have a good one, y’all. 🙂

SOCS – SO, SOW, SEW

Standard

SOCS – SO, SOW, SEW socsbadge2016-17

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 11/17

Today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday includes the words, so, sow, and sew. Join in the fun by clicking the above link. 🙂

***

So…

#SOCS starts with ‘SO’. Just noticed that.

Do you ever say ‘so-so’? Like when someone asks how you’re doing, you just answer, “I’m doing so-so.” I think that means everything is going along as normal as possible. Nothing bad, nothing good, just so-so.

I like to start sentences with the  -so- word. I don’t know why, and it does become repetitive, so… I have to go back and take some of the ‘so’ words out.

Next up is the same sounding word, ‘sow’. Like when you plant seeds in a garden or flower pot. I do that a lot in the spring. I’m not good at growing plants, but I keep sowing seeds, to see what, if anything comes up. This word could also sound like a pig…sow, which sounds completely different from ‘sow’, even though it’s spelled the same way. How would you phonetically spell that? I don’t know. I just tried sounding it out, but my mouth made funny expressions, so I stopped trying to sound out ‘sow’ like a pig.

I used to do a lot of sewing. I still have a sewing machine, and get it out once in awhile. Used to you could buy fabric and a pattern to make an outfit of some kind, and it was cheaper than buying it ready-made. Last time I checked, this wasn’t the case anymore. So…I don’t sew clothes these days.

That’s about all.

Happy Weekend! 🙂

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 10/16

***

Well, I can barely stand to tell you this, but I’m a whole week late in posting the SOCS from last Saturday. I had it all ready to go, (the photo and video), then forgot to post it. I wrote a lot about it all…in my head. I thought I’d posted it, but no. So, here I am this weekend, trying to catch up with the ‘sh’ post, and the one from today, ‘bear/bare’ topic prompts.

Bear with me while I ramble a bit.

For the ‘sh’ word sound, it was perfect for last week. I actually had a vanilla shake for lunch. Yay! It was good, too. Later in the week we went to a garden shop here in town, to look at all the pretty Christmas trees they have decorated and on display. Then, the next day after that, I was shivering…I had caught a cold, and was well, cold, and then hot. You know how that is.

Anyway, here’s a photo of my shake, and an old type video of a fun song with the word Shake in the title. 🙂

Here is a photo of one of the Christmas trees we saw, and there is a bear ornament – Winnie the Pooh! Shall this be enough?

SECOND – for SOCS – STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SATURDAY

Standard

SECOND – for SOCS – STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SATURDAY untitled

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 23/16

***

Wait a second…what are we writing about? Do you say ‘wait a second’ a lot? I do, but a second in this case lasts longer than one second.

Do you still wear a watch that has a ‘second’ hand? Isn’t that what it was called, that little hand that goes round and round, counting off the seconds? Now, a lot of watches and clocks just count off the seconds by flipping/changing a lighted up number.

I seem to spend a lot of time counting seconds down when waiting for something to heat up in the microwave. Watching those seconds…5, 4, 3, 2, 1…ding-ding, it’s ready! Sometimes I can’t wait that long, so I stop it before the seconds are finished with their count down.

Here’s a story that’s true. In second grade I got into trouble. I remember it to this day, and still feel like I was in the right. We were to draw pictures of the sky and clouds, for some reason. I love drawing, and coloring, so I took my time doing a super looking picture on that big sheet of manilla paper they hand out. I drew my clouds in the shape of sheep. a lot of them up in the sky. All those pretty white sheep, floating in a sky of blue. So pretty. Well, teacher didn’t like it, and said clouds were not sheep. Well, of course I knew that, but haven’t you ever looked up at the fluffy clouds to see shapes? There could be a sheep shape.  haha sheep shape…well, anyway, she was wrong and I was right. Don’t you think so?

That’s all I have for the prompt word ‘second’ at this time. I could probably think of more, but my few seconds for this SOCS is up! 🙂

IF and THEN for Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS

Standard

IF and THEN for Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 16/16

***

If I’d get out of these jammies, and into some actual going out in public clothes, then I could go shopping. That’s what I want to do today.

If  we get through this blazing hot summer, then it would come freezing cold winter. But then, I’d be complaining about being too cold, and wishing for summer, again.

If I will continue to go through the junk I have in my closets and garage, to get rid of some of it, then I’d have room for some more junk to fill it up again.

If I knew anything else to write about if/then, then I would. I think I did think of some more things, but then promptly forgot them.

If I don’t stop typing OF instead of If, then I wouldn’t have to backspace to correct the typo, which I typoed too, if there is such a word, but I think I made it up just now. It started out as typho …which reminds me of typhoons, which I’ve been in, in Japan.

Well, there ya go…my descent into silliness or is it sillyness …nope first one was right (I got the squiggly red line on the 2nd one)… and nope, not gonna delete it, because it’s SOCS, and sometimes you just have to let it be.

Here’s a couple of songs with the titles including the words If and Then!

CONCENTRATION – for STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SATURDAY

Standard

CONCENTRATION  – for STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SATURDAY

This is where we take a prompt word and write whatever comes to mind at the time of writing, with little or no planning of what to say. It’s fun! Here’s how to join in and see other’s entries:

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 9/16

Today we have as the prompt word, ‘concentration’.

I thought about it a little bit, and read some of the other entries for today. Seems what I’d thought about has already been written about. Guess that’s because lots of participants get their’s done early in the day. I, on the other hand, just don’t, because too early in the morning and I can’t concentrate. I need coffee, and cats have to be fed, then I need breakfast, and then there’s dishes, and laundry, and all kinds of things that have to be done, including going somewhere sometimes. So, I get to my posting late in the day.

I was going to mention the old TV game show, Concentration. I used to love that show. We even had a sort of board game thing of this. It was a box, with a roll of paper inside, that you scroll up with little knobs. This was the way to change the puzzle you have to solve. It also had little yellow tabs for numbers and the prizes you could win. They fitted onto the top of the plastic holder on top of the box.

Then there was mentioned the concentration camps. Such a horror in the history of the world. I did visit one, Dachau, in Germany. It was a memorial type museum now, in which there were photos, art, and the stories of what happened there. We actually stood in one of the gas chambers. I’m not lying, when I say you could feel the spirits of all those who perished.

Then there is the fact I can’t really concentrate on any one thing for very long. Too many distractions with ADHD.

So, what to write…I did think of something I didn’t see mentioned yet. It is the drinks/juices that are made from concentrate, or those that say they are not from concentrate. One has the water taken out, to be added later, and one doesn’t. I read that it is a matter of cost of shipping, as water is heavy, so they ship the concentrated drink, to have someone else add the water to it.

Now, to end on a different note? theme? idea?

excuse the bad grammar –

C- can’t

O- only

N – not

C- concentrate

E – every

N – now &

T – then

R – remembering

A – any

T – thing

I – is

O – only

N – now & again

Oreos

Nougat

Charms

English toffee

Nerds

Taffy

Red hots

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 25/16

***

So, I’ve been drinking all day. That’s not unusual, but I’ve drank more than usual, I think. You see, I’ve had a headache all day long. It isn’t terribly bad, but it just keeps nagging at me. My remedy for that is to drink, and drink some more…caffeine, that is.

I usually start off a day by drinking a couple cups of coffee. Right after that last sip of coffee with cream, I start in on iced tea. Then for breakfast, I usually have a small cup of milk, followed by more iced tea. I keep refilling my glass (actually plastic, but that sounds weird…I refilled my plastic…) It is one of those insulated kind, with a top and a straw that you see everywhere these days. I like them, because I have a thing about knocking a glass/plastic over, spilling it all. That’s why I like the top on there.

Now, if we go out to eat, I’ll order a coke, DP, or Pepsi. That’s about the only time I drink those. Anyway, middle of the afternoon I’ll have another couple cups of coffee, then more tea until almost bedtime. Then another coffee last thing.

But, when I have a headache, like today, I up the caffeine amount. It seems to help, most of the time. Along with that, I’ll take Tylenol or Motrin, and eat some chocolate (any kind, but candy works good). You know, more caffeine, meds, and hot, hot coffee! So, I had lots today, along with added bottles of water, to keep hydrated. It’s hot out here in TX, and we were out in the sun this morning, looking at an animal exhibit at the Science Spectrum. That was interesting (I petted a camel, llama, goat, kitten, a snake, and a skink).

So, I just finished drinking some coffee, and working on iced tea, and next up will be my late afternoon non-alcoholic beer, because, why not? I love the taste of beer, but don’t want to get the dizzy/tipsy feeling. I have that all the time anyway, with vertigo, and balance problems (and walk like I’m drunk anyway).

Well, that’s my daily drinks. 🙂
