Stream of Consciousness Saturday. August 22nd 2020 Brush.

Good morning, it is Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt for us to make fast and loose with is : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “brush.” Use it as a noun, a verb, or an idiom. Have fun!

It’s 7.20am and I have been awake over an hour, looking out towards the trees opposite I try to brush the cobwebs out of my head. They are very stubborn cobwebs they do not want to be brushed!

So many thoughts are swirling around in my head not many happy thoughts in there though! Can I , should I even, brush them under the carpet. I could do that it’s the easiest way to deal with problems just brush them aside, pretend all is well.

No, it’s no good even though I don’t feel up to it I must 🎶dust myself off, brush myself down and start all over again 🎶. Yesterday 49years ago I married the love of my life yes we jumped the brush.

So even though I am tired and not being well is getting me down, and hubby is feeling down coping with his mother’s estate and his awkward siblings we must brush everything aside and just get on with life.

Okay let’s pick up life’s paint brush and create our own canvas, let’s make each brush stroke count. Like the dog brushing past my legs, the squirrel in the trees opposite with his brush tail, we’ll grab the brush and sweep up the pieces.

That’s enough I am slipping in to Madness here so that it for this week folks! I am not giving you the brush off.

    “Let’s make each brush stroke count” sounds like a fantastic way to approach the last few months in 2020.

    Happy Anniversary! You two are adorable! 💜💜💜

    All those cobwebs that keep on gathering blur one’s mind so easily. Brushing them away doesn’t seem to help too. You look so sweet and happy on the photo. Times will turn around sooner or later. Look after yourself and rest enough.

    That wedding photo is too sweet and if you still call him the love of your life, it means that you laid down the brush strokes just right. Happy anniversary and best wishes for many more.

    What a great photo, Marje. Just looking at it made me smile. As for problems, if I don’t have any control over them, then I stop worrying about them. Life goes on because it is continually painting a picture of our life.

      Is this for me or Marje 😳🌹🌹

        Oh, sorry, Willow. I’d just read and commented on a post on Marje’s blog before opening yours. Don’t you just hate it when you say the wrong name in a comment 🙈

        Well it’s funny when it’s someone you know but you can’t be sure if it’s for you are the other person. But when I get the name wrong I find it mortifying … No harm done Hugh 💜💜💜

        BTW. Hugh I came across a post where lots of bloggers were complaining about the new Block Editor and threatening to lead. I did say if I could use it anyone could and directed them to your tutorials. I found them very helpful 😃

        That’s so kind, thank you, Willow. Yes, I’ve been reading a lot about the recent changes WordPress have made to the editors. I wrote a post about the announcement WordPress made and some commentators took out their frustrations on me! (even though I stated at the end of the post that it was WordPress making the changes – not me). The ironic thing is that the Classic editor is still available by way of the Classic block. It need be the only block a user ever uses and, from what WordPress says, it does pretty much the same as the WordPress.Com Classic editor did. I can’t vouch for that because it’s been well over a year since I last used the WordPress.Com classic editor.

        It’ll be a shame if some people choose to leave because of the changes. However, they’re entirely within their right to do so if they don’t like the changes. As a paying customer, I know that if I didn’t like anything about the products or services of a company, I’d take my business elsewhere.

        I like you Hugh I got s bit of flack , I know you can use the classic block but don’t use it anymore preferring thehr the new one! I just couldn’t cope with setting up anew and losing my friends. I hope the bad feelings settle soon 😘

    I would have been married to Ralphie 50 years this year but we divorced long ago. I’m glad I celebrated my 38th anniversary with M’sieu le Mario not long ago.
