SOCS~ Critical

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “critic(al).” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Being critical is part of being a human being. We like to criticize everything around us, especially if it’s not ours. Yes, I’m guilty of that, too. Some criticisms aren’t harsh when they are done in a constructive way. Once they are made to hurt people’s feelings, then I don’t want to be part of.

I don’t like to be critical, however I’m the worst person when it’s about myself. An example when I’m writing it’s not good enough or when I’m trying on new clothes and I believe it looks terrible. Yes, I can be mean to myself and I don’t like it at all. That’s when I know I’m getting into depression and I’ve to take my MEDs.

How do I stop being a harsh critical of myself? I read positive books, I read other bloggers, I get busy on my coloring books, and I play with my granddaughter. One thing, I try not be on social media as much I use to be. Social media is one place where some people love to be mean to others. I’ve to delete around 20 supposedly friends for the same reason.

SoCS~ Yawning!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yawn.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “yawn,” when you sit down to write your post. Enjoy!

“Yawn” is the word that describes me at this moment. Since I’ve this terrible rash and I’m taking steroids and Benadryl, I can’t stop yawning. This afternoon for example, I went to my grandson’s 12th birthday party and I was yawning all the time. My grandson asks if I was tired or hungry. He knows I’m taking MEDs, however yawning all the time he was concerned. He’s a wonderful kid always caring.

I find funny when I yawn in front of my dog and he begins yawning too. Also, he begins looking tired. I’ve to take these MEDs until Monday, so for the weekend I will be feeling tired. The rash I caught is looking better at least it didn’t spread to the rest of my body, however stills itch especially at night. And no matter how tired I can be as soon I go to bed, my eyes refused to close. Here I go again, yawning and yawning.

Have a pleasant weekend.

SoCS~ Adverb “ends with-ly”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ends with -ly.” Start your post with any adverb that ends in “-ly.” Bonus points if you end with an adverb too. Have fun!

Quietly I’m having my morning coffee. I turn on my computer to write something on my journal and check my fellow bloggers. I’m taking the advantage of the house being quiet and my husband still sleeping after going to bed at 1am watching the series Stargate SG1. Silently, I’m sitting in my cozy chair, thinking what to do on this cold Saturday. I love being by myself before the commotion begins. I can think better with no rush.
I’m planning to attend the flea market and check for great deals. Usually I look for antique cameras, lanterns, music boxes, and if I can get a few old books it would be a plus.
Have a lovely Saturday.

P.D. Before I leave if someone is having any problem with the WordPress? I can’t like or make comment on other posts, no matter if I’m following the blog or not. It shows I’ve to login in when I’m already login and if I log again still doesn’t work. I don’t want anyone to think I’m not reading their post. What should I do?

SoCS & #JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt 1/26/2019 ~Ad

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “ad/add/AD (Anno Domini).” Use one, use ’em all–bonus points if you fit them all into your post. Have fun!

It looks it would be another weekend stuck in the house. I don’t like leaving when it’s too cold. It’s already -17 degrees and we’re expecting 5-8 inches of snow by tomorrow. Don’t take me wrong, I love being in my house sitting in my cozy chair reading or binged on Netflix or Hulu. However, it will be nice to get fresh air. It looks today, it would be Hallmark with a Monk marathon. I never will get tired of this show.

I’m browsing a magazine and it’s incredible how the first 8 pages are ads. I realized a ¾ of the magazine is ads and ¼ it’s the articles. What a shame I pay 3.99 for this magazine and its mainly ads. A suggestion from a reader, if you want to sell your magazine eliminate some of the ads and add more interested articles.

#SoCS & #JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt~ Television

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “television.” Talk about your favorite show, past, present, or future, or about the apparatus itself. Enjoy!

I love to watch television. It’s entertaining and it comforts my day. Yes, I’m a television junkie. When I was younger, we would watch television all together, it was family time. We would sit together to watch cartoons, tv series, and “Spanish Novellas (soaps)”. Spending that time together was priceless. We didn’t have a big tv and our first one was a black and white. The television wasn’t on all day. My parents didn’t want us to be hypnotized by the television. They want us to have the time to read and to play outside.

I raised my children the same way and now as adults, they watch the television when they have the time. However, as I grow older, I’m watching more television because it’s the only time I can relax. Just last night I watched Frozen and Monster University with my granddaughter and we have fun. And tonight, I will be watching classic Western movies with my husband.

My favorite channels would be Hallmark Mystery, SyFy, and lately I’m binging on Netflix and Hulu. I love those classic tv shows.

SoCS & JusJoJan Daily Prompt~Jan 5th ~Sip

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sap/sep/sip/sop/sup.” Use one or all of these words or find a word that contains them, but most of all, have fun! Enjoy!

I’ve been sick for the past few days and I missed the prompt from yesterday, so here I am trying to participate in today. It’s hard to concentrate on writing when I spend most of the night coughing and my chest hurt. My husband makes me hot chamomile tea with honey to soothe my cough. I sipped my hot tea, hoping this will calm down this horrible cough. Every time I cough My heads feels it wants to explode. He’s making soup for supper and he wants me to go back to bed. Maybe, I will try tomorrow to keep with the prompt challenge. I can’t think nothing else with the other words.

SoCS~ Ask someone else (Coffee)

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ask someone else.” Either ask someone for a prompt word or, if you can’t, turn on a TV or a radio and choose a word from the first sentence you hear. Enjoy!

I ask my husband for a prompt word and he didn’t know what to say except to ask me if I want coffee. I can’t live without my coffee so the word coffee it is. I drink plenty of coffee making two pots a day and I’m the only one who drink it. My husband drinks coffee only in the morning the rest of the pot it’s all mine. So, thinking of coffee during the summer I made a coffee bar with all my cups and different coffee’s brands. I’ve been decorating it for the different season.

After, having my cup of coffee my husband asks if I want to go out. I realized I’ve been in the house ever since Christmas Eve. I love being in my home and it’s time to get fresh air no matter how cold its outside. It’s been snowing ever since Christmas Eve and it’s below 10. I’m hibernating as my husband like to say. Maybe that’s why I keep drinking a lot of coffee. However, been at home it gives me the chance to read a few books. The one I’m reading is a cozy mystery from Joy Avon. I must take advantage of being on Christmas break since I’ll be going back to work on the 4th. It’s time for another cup of coffee.
