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.

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.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fall from the sky.” Write about anything that falls from the sky–real, imagined, or idiomatic. Have fun!
What kind of things can fall from the sky? Today a little bit of snow, it’s May and it looks winter doesn’t want go away. So, it flakes all morning turning into rain in the afternoon. I was disappointed, because I want to start my flower and my vegetable garden.
Thinking of what could fall from the sky. If I’m going to think like my grandkids, I would say candies all different kinds like chocolate kisses, gummies bear, marshmallows, and delicious cotton candy.
Can you imagine how much fun would be? All the smiles and the laughter coming from the kids and everyone who loves sweet. I would be the first one. Also, it can be messy, but then again, it would be a delicious mess.
However, in the real world and in so many countries other things are falling from the sky. They have wars and they’re fighting for freedom and justice. I see from the NEWS the sadness, tears, and people afraid of the injustice. It’s unspeakable and alarming.
I would prefer the dream of all kinds of sweets falling from the sky and to watch the smiles and hear the laughter instead of terrifying faces, sadness, and tears.
This happens to me especially when it’s a Friday.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rib.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “rib”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!
Yesterday, we were cleaning our backyard and getting it ready for the summer. My husband cleans his grill and prepared our first BBQ Ribs. Some of our neighbors were also grilled. The smell of the ribs on the grill makes anyone wanted to stay outside all night. The grilling season has started with my son’s favorite menu BBQ ribs. I preferred the chicken; however, those first BBQ ribs were delicious. The warm weather equals gardening, grill, and BBQ ribs.
