Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “starts with cal.” Use a word starting with the letters “cal” as your prompt word. Have fun!
Caledonia was the Latin name used by the Roman empire to refer to the part of Great Britain that lies north of the River Forth, which includes most of the land area of Scotland. Today, it is used as a romantic or poetic name for all of Scotland. Wikipedia.
The Romans built Hadrian’s Wall. It’s still standing… The Caledonians are a fearsome race, they scared the Romans and later the rest of the UK and the world.
This post is really me being lazy because I am finding it too hard to post at all at the moment. I am hoping I can get back into the swing of things soon.
It’s Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Today Linda has given this old chestnut of prompt:Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “close eyes and point.” When you’re ready to write your post, open a book, a newspaper, or whatever is handy and close your eyes and point. Whatever word or picture your finger lands on, make that the basis of your post.
I opened my copy of :This is Lockdown by Marje Mallon. It was actually the only book in the room. I contrabuted to this book, in fact that said contrabution is my first foray into print.
I digress, I opened the book, closed my eyes, and pointed. When I opened my eyes the word I was pointing to, and I mean bang on the button pointing to was Thankful.
Firstly I am thankful to Marje for believing in me enough to ask me if I would like to contrabute, along with others, to her book.
Secondly I am thankful that I have a home, food, warmth and my hubby.
Thirdly I am so thankful that our middle lad has survived the Covid, it was nasty and very worrying at times. We lost hubby’s mother to Covid last June. He is back at work and though struggling with exhaustion he is improving.
Fourthly I am thankful that the other two lads, the grandchildren and the daughter in law are all well and coping.
Penultimately I am thankful that after an awful year, healthwise, last year. I am finally regaining my strength.
Finally I am thankful for all of you my lovely blog brothers and sisters. As always you have all helped and supported me. I am truly thankful for you all and my lot.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mini/maxi.” Use “mini” (the smallest of something) or “maxi” (the largest) or both in your post. Have fun!
Our first car was mini in 1969 it was an F registration 1967. It was an ex police car from Bedfordshire. An unusual colour, Burmuda Blue a beautiful colour. Mini’s in those days were tiny and basic and not very fast, not sure it could of been a traffic car, but it was probably a panda car.
Mini 850cc Mk3 Basic Reg: WUE 148H (H = 1st Aug 1969 – 31st July 1970)
That is how our Mimi would of looked before we bought it. The blues and twos had been removed from the roof and the doors had been stayed blue to match the rest of the car. We loved it so, we travelled to Cornwall, Scotland and Devon in it. It was a real work horse and we had it when we lived in London , until we moved to Exmouth in 1973.
The above dress is a mini dress the hight of fashion in those days! Talking of fashion, well I just mentioned it didn’t I? I was a window dresser in those days so what with staff discount and proximity to all the latest “gear” I had a chance to follow fashion which included, mini skirts/dresses, hot pants, midi dreses/ coats and of course Maxi dresses/coats. Though in my case, being vertically challenged, the middi sufficed as a maxi for me!
I had one like this in Brown and it had frog fastening at the front. I love my maxi coat and mini dress.
I also had one of these boy it stank!
I loved my Afghan coat but it really never lost its smell. Well I think that’s all I need to say about Mini and Maxi. Let’s ask George and Ringo to play us out, Fab a song that brings back those days to me 💜
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday from Linda G Hill is “the last thing you put in your fridge.” Start your post with the last thing you put in your fridge. Let your mind wander from there. Enjoy!
The last thing I put in the fridge was honey. The little ditty is personal on how I feel and not a daming review, I am sure it’s lovely.
Honey, made by Australian Bees Hit my tongue but failed to please. The blossom sweetness failed My taste buds were not excited nor regaled. So I returned the jar to the fridge Was I disappointed, yes, just a smidge!
I have written two Acrostic poems with different definitions for todays #SoCs challenge from Linda. The prompt. Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ring.” Use it as a noun, a verb, an adverb, or an adjective…use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a word you have to look up.” We all have words we can never spell. Use one of yours in your post and let that word drive your stream of consciousness where ever it goes. Have fun!
I have to admit I am not very good at spelling but I usually manage even if I do have to occasionally look a word up. There is a word though that I often get wrong and have to check up on regularly . That word is NECESSARY I often have to look that one up. I think it must be the number of C’s and S’s they just confound and confuse me. It’s a tad like Anniversary I always want to spell it as Anniversery? Why I just don’t know. Then there is adversary I think that should be adversery but again it is not. Anyway I am so late with this one so I am going to stop now before you think I am totally illiterate!
