Just Jot it January and Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

Welcome to the Daily 2020 Just Jot it January Prompt and the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt for SATURDAY, JANUARY 18TH! Linda is copying a prompt she used almost exactly four years ago. She dosen’t reuse prompts very often–I hope you enjoy it!

For those of you joining SoCS for the first time, it’s a little different than the other prompts in that it’s not always a whole word. Much may be left up to your discretion: this week is no exception. Having said that, if you’re joining in from JusJoJan, don’t want to write stream of consciousness style, no worries. It’s up to you! If you do want to try it, please check out the rules below. It’s fun! Here’s your Saturday prompt:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “movie title.” Take the title of the last movie you watched (just the title, not the premise of the movie), and base your post on that title. Have fun!

The last film I watched was the Irishman. The title, NOT THE CONTENT, put me in mind of my mum and dad.

The Irishman blue eyes and black hair

A lilting voice to make you lose all care

Big hands rough and calloused from work.

He’d always laboured not one to shirk.

The English girl, peaches and cream

He was the handsomest man she’d seen.

She was gentle but also strong

She’d need that strength before too long.

From such different classes

Love knows no bounds and all trials surpasses.

Together they made a life long plan

Happy were they, the English girl and the Irishman.

Here is the book I was reading.

The week goes by

My how time flies

Not a second to yourself

To sit upon the shelf

Worry about your health

Or plan to make your wealth .

Day in day out

There really is no doubt.

That time will never stop

There’s no need to be in a strop

Time keeps you on the hop!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 28/19

It’s the last Saturday of 2019 and so it’s the last SoCs of the year.

LindaGHill said, “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “year.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy! #SoCs

Year Ending was a strange place nothing much ever happened there. The streets were always shrouded in half light, that late afternoon light just before it gets dark. There was always rain or snow, even both on occasion. The houses were always dressed for Christmas but the decorations inevitable looked old, tired!

There was always something in the air, a coming to an end of things past that cannot be undone and a conflicting expectancy of an unknown start a comming. Nothing ever got started or ended it was as if everyone and everything there was caught in a void.

Just up the road in the next town everything was bright and new everything was hustle and bustle. The streets were lined with houses that looked brand new. People were busy full of good intentions and resolutions! Yes everything was always bright and new.

Two towns only a minute apart, yes indeed Year Ending and New Year.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 21/19

It is Friday and Linda said : Time for your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ingle.” Find a word that contains “ingle” and use it any way you’d like in your post. Have fun!

Ingle has more than one meaning, from Scottish Gaelic the word aingeal meaning fire and light. To Paramore or sweetheart the origin of this is unknown.

Anyhow let’s see if we can have some Christmas fun with those two meanings.

Fairy sat in the inglenook next to the roaring fire.

So grateful was she to be inside, out there in the snow she thought she’d expire.

Father Christmas and the reindeer were on their way.

He it all to do tonight and he had such a full slay!

As he approached the last house he spotted the chimney imiting smoke.

This was the last straw he couldn’t cope.

He stood on the roof and stomped his boots

Come on Dancer and Prancer help me into my fire proof suit

Down the chimney once more

To be surprised to find his paramore

Santa was filled with happy glee his darling ingle to see.

All his Christmas Eve Delivery blues did flee.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 14/19

LindaGHill said : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “loud.” Find any word that means “loud,” and use it any way you’d like in your post. Enjoy!

With a thunderous bang he fell
 For the green eyed,raucous girl
 With her brazen red hair flowing
 Every bone in his body bellowing
 She is the one, brash, and noisy
 All woman not an inch boysey.
 He waved,knocking over his glass
 With an unholy crash, as she past.
 This made her scream and fall 
 Into his arms with a clamorous call.
 They were married in spring
 The choir did loudly sing
 To be heard over the clanging bells
 And their friends excited yells.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 16/19

It time for Stream of Consciousness Saturday and I am late this week! Our lovely host Linda G Hill said : “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dream.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Strangely as it happens I had a really bad night last night full of very uncomfortable dreams. All the time I was plagued with an awful headache. Well the headache turned out to be real I still have it now, half way through my day.

Back to my dreams which were interspersed with me waking and lying there wondering what was going on and why does my head hurt so much. So in these dreams I was traveling but getting nowhere, I was delayed and even aggressively held back at points. To make matters worse there were bloggers I know in these dreams and they were telling me that the event I was traveling too had been cancelled. This really caused me great distress.

So here I am coping with a very busy day and an unwell dog feeling very uneasy and battling with a massive headache.

Enough moaning you don’t come here to read moans! I can’t change what I have written as this is SoCs so let’s through together a little poem on the dream.

Dreams can be scary
Mad and hairy
They can be lucid
Or even fridged
Dream can arouse and please
Or they can disquiet and tease
They should be gone by first light
They should be the order of the night
So why is it my present plight
To be haunted by night frights

This moan was brought to you care of SoCs rules and ping back here.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 9/19

Hi it’s time again for SoCs. This week Linda said:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ght.” Find a word that contains the letters “ght” in that order, and use it any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use three or more different words containing those letters. Have fun!

Butterflies Etheree.

Bright
Sunlight
Butterflies
Flood skies in flight
Their colours mighty
Work as one no fighting
There's no wrongs for them to right
Their wings beautiful, have no blight
They dance all day and into the night
Silver ghosts by night drawn to candlelight.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 2/19

Nuts about you
Yes it’s true
Without you
I would be so blue.
What’s a girl to do
When she is just nuts about you?

Nuts, that is just what LindaGHill said well she actually said :

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

Nuts can mean that you are insane, mad,deranged or just plain stupid. It can apply to a person, thing or even a plan. Nuts can also just be nuts as in the peanut, hazel, brazil, walnut, pecan, pine nuts…need I go on?

Nutshell now here is an interesting word, it can mean at face value or just mean the shell a nut comes in. You need to use a nutcracker to open nuts because their shells are so hard! Mind you there is no point in trying to use nutcrackers on coconuts, no they need something much stronger, machete , hammer and chisel or an axe…too dangerous let us not go there. Anyway nutcrackers doesn’t count as its only nut and not nuts! Unlike Nutshell which is nuts. Now you can also say “That’s it in a nutshell” that means that is the essence of a thing or the concise meaning of something or even the whole thing in a short version. For instance. “He broke the door as he left, then drove off in the car, crashed it broke his leg and ended up in hospital…that’s it in a nutshell.”

Now this post is driving me nuts because it has taken me ages to write because I have to keep stopping to , get up, walk the dog, have breakfast, clean up , prepare to go out and just stay sane! So here is the finished article , unedited but that is what SoCs is all about isn’t it. So have a good Saturday and don’t go NUTS!

This daft post was brought to you care of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. #SoCs.
