SoCS~ “Frame”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “frame.” Use it as a noun or a verb or any way you like. Have fun!

 

I’ve have been organizing my old pictures and photo albums. I’ve a plastic container full, you know, this is before it became digital. My granddaughters were excited to see old family pictures and for myself, I became a little nostalgic. Looking at the photos it brings the memories, especially when I found a picture of my parents with me as a baby sitting on my dad’s lap. I began telling stories about family members who are not with us anymore.

 

They want a few pictures to make their own photo album so I made two small piles. I’m framing a few of my favorites and making a family wall. At this moment I only have on the wall some wedding pictures. However, I need to frame, baby pictures of all of us, grandkids, trips, and oldie family members. This is a project I will like to have done before I go back to work. I can’t wait to go shopping for different shapes of picture frames.

SoCS~”Chew/Choo”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “chew/choo.” Use one or both, any way you’d like. Have fun!

 

The only think it comes to my mind is when my beloved it dog use to chew on anything she had in front of her. Just the other day I was thinking of her it has been a year and a half since she died. She used to have a little space in my closet where she would take her toys and anything, she can find no matter if it wasn’t hers.

 

My little stinker used to grab my shoes and chew on them. Her favorite was my work shoes. If I can’t find them, I would find it in her space.

 

Thus, it’s all I have for today. It’s nice outside and from my window I can see my flowers are in full bloom. Today I’m taking the girls to the zoo. And tonight, I will be watching Stranger Things season 3 who just came out.

 

Have a wonderful Saturday. Oh, I can hear the train choo, choo….

SoCS~ “for/fore/four”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “for/fore/four.” Use one, use ’em all, use ’em any way you want. Bonus points for using all three. Enjoy!

 

June it’s almost over and for the most part of the month it has been chilly and breezy. However, by the end of this weekend it would get warmer.

 

I’ve accomplished a few things during the month of June from my summer bucket list. Including reducing the pile of books I’ve been accumulating on my nightstand. I didn’t realize how many books I was piling up and every time I visit Barnes and Noble, I keep buying more. I’m not counting what I’ve downloaded on my Kindle Fire. I’ve already read four books.

 

For the month of July our family trip to SD, we’ve a few more camping at the lake, and the ND state fair. My granddaughters would be heading back to Arizona by the end of July so we’ve to enjoy every minute.

 

So far, this summer has been a great one. My depression has been in control, however a few days ago, not so good. I’m taking a day at a time.

SOCS~ Leaves

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “leaves.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

 

It’s officially summer. I’ve been waiting to enjoy the warm weather; however, it has been raining and windy and it feels chilly. I’ve been wearing long sleeves and if I want to be outside using a blanket. A bit different from when I was in Arizona a couple of weeks ago and the temperature was 110 degrees. Yesterday, the high was 67 degrees and today’s forecast by 2pm to be 75 degrees.

 

My garden is growing beautifully and it’s beginning to bloom. I’ve a few trees in my patio including an apple tree they’re already full of green leaves. We will have a lot of apples this year. I love sitting on my patio and enjoy the green leaves. I’m hoping we can get a warmer summer very soon I’ll love to put away my long sleeves and have a nice lemonade instead of hot chocolate.

SOCS~ Cozy

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rhymes with rosy.” Find a word that rhymes with “rosy” or use the word “rosy” and base your post on it. Enjoy!

 

Sitting in my cozy chair I’m officially on vacation mode. Yesterday after goodbyes and tears from our 5th graders who are going next fall to middle school I felt relieved of another successful year. For the ones who doesn’t know me, I’m the cafeteria supervisor (for some people the lunch lady). I take care of feeding 300 students from K-5.

 

We’ve been selected the best kitchen staff in the school district. Plus, for the last two years, our Principal has been awarded as the best Principal from the state of North Dakota. I can’t complain. There is no question I was waiting anxiously for this day to come. However, I’ll miss the noisy breakfast and the lunch period.

 

For the next three months I’m going to enjoy every second of my time off, hoping to take care of myself in a better way. Recharging my strength and my mind and sitting on my cozy chair streaming my favorite shows.

SOCS~”Adverb”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “adverb.” Start your post with any adverb and just run with it. Have fun!

 

Finally, one more week of work and the beginning of my summer vacation. Someone at work asked if I was planning to find a summer job. I told her I don’t need a summer job since I’ve saved money for the nine months I’m been working. I felt she wasn’t to thrill and she made a remark on how much my husband likes to spoil me.

 

Last night I asked him if I should apply for a summer job. He says we have money saved and he actually likes the idea of me being home. We can go anyplace at any time without me requesting time off from a job. We both are careful with spending when and we go out for dinner twice a month. The only thing I love to spend money is in books, however I’m all set up. I got three Barnes and Nobles gift cards for Mother’s Day and I will visit my public library any time. So, I won’t miss any releases I want to read.

 

Finally, my husband bought my plane tickets to Arizona to pick up my granddaughters. They’re staying for a month. We are planning a trip to South Dakota in the middle of June and a quick trip to Florida to see my aunt. Who needs a summer job?

 

To my friend who made the remarks how spoiled I am. Yes, it’s true, I’m spoiled. However, after being married for 35 years we can spoil each other. I’ll enjoy my time with the grandkids, finish some projects, and take care of myself. It will be a great summer vacation.

SOCS~ Strain

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “strain.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

 

Who will tell me that after I turn 55, I will be complaining to much about the strain my body has been suffering? My back, my knees, and this week my right upper arm, the one I use the most is hurting and not letting me sleep. In a few weeks I will be turning 59 and the signs of arthritis are showing all over.

 

When I became a grandmother 15 years ago, I would play all day and run around the house with the babies, however today with my youngest little princess who is 2 is getting too hard to do the same activities. Everyone says age is a number, but when that number comes with arthritis that’s a different story.
