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.

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.
For today’s Just Jot It January post, Linda G. Hill asks us to jot about our blogs.
I took an online class “Blogging for beginners” and I started two blogs in September 2013. One from Bloggers and this one in WordPress. I just wanted to write small stories and thoughts. I wrote a few stories in Blogger and there was no response. I decide to quit Blogger. When I was close to quit this blog, a few readers begin to make comments and I decide to stay. One detail is missing in this blog is to write those short stories that no one from the other blog read.
As for the theme or niche there isn’t one. I’ve made a few changes over the years to be honest, I can get bored easily. So, I need to keep it fresh and interesting.
Blogging has changed my life, even if I don’t blog daily. I enjoy reading other bloggers, especially the ones I follow. I love reading their post and get to know them basis in their writings. I want to thank everyone who supports my blog with your comments. It makes my day.
13 Days til Christmas!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas Everywhere you Go….
I was listening to this song a few minutes ago. Only 13 days to celebrate the holiday with family. I can’t wait…

This past weekend I went to my daughter’s wedding. It was just a small wedding, celebrated in Sedona Arizona. They choose the mountains where they met and they fall in love. They got engaged a little bit over a month. I thought the wedding would be next year, however they wanted, now. I’m happy for her and for my son- in law who I see as another son. I’m thankful for having him as part of our family and for making my daughter, very happy.

It has been a tough week. The first anniversary of my father’s passing is almost here. To be exact he passed a Nov. 12th so on this Monday would be the first year. I’m glad we don’t work on Monday as we celebrated Veteran’s Day. You can imagine how emotional I’ve been feeling.
Meanwhile, my little granddaughter turns 2 and we just celebrated her birthday. I’ve to show a happy face for her and the family. It’s tough seem happy when your heart feels different. It brings the memories of last year when I was talking to my father about her birthday party and then suddenly he has the heart attack.
My oldest son who knows what’s going on with my depression wants me to be strong and be positive. Also, he recommends I stop watching depressing TV, especially the News. I know in my heart he’s right, however depression can be a tough battle hard to win.
Halloween, it’s almost here and it’s the perfect time to watch spooky movies. A few television stations has horror movie marathons. I decide this weekend to watch “The Haunting of the Hill House” a 10-episode mini-series on Netflix. It’s a great series and it did chills my bones. After being spooked by this series I will like to read the book.
I love horror movies, especially if it’s a classic and the ones in black and whites are the best. I remember the first movie I watched. I was 12 and my parents were already sleeping. I sneak into the living room and watch “Black Sunday” a 1960 film. It was so good; however, I can’t sleep for weeks. My mother wasn’t too thrill, especially when I’ve nightmares.
I continue watching them telling my parents I was fined and old enough to watch those movies. After all it was easy to hide under my sheets and I did like to be spooked. I remember on Fridays they have a segment on TV beginning at 9pm called “Sinister Hour” and on Saturdays “The Horror Hour”. I didn’t miss a movie.
Some of my favorites:
2-Frankenstein (1931 film is my favorite)
3-The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
4- Cat People (1942)
5-The Innocents (1961)
6- The House in Haunted Hill (1959)
7- Psycho (1960)
8- The Cursed of the Werewolf (1961)
9- Dracula: prince of Darkness (1966)
10- The Exorcist (1973- first film I watched at the movie theater)
Every time I watched them, they can chill my bones.
