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.

I fancied another bite at the cherry this week. I do love Star Trek especially The Next Generation. Mr Data is a great Character, an android who would dearly love to be human. ….here he is talking poetically about his cat Spot.

This second piece of silliness is for LindaGHill’s #SoCs.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “spot.” Write whatever image the word “spot” invokes. Have fun!

Spot the difference, when I was a little girl I love to do those puzzles that showed two apparently identical pictures, they had suttel differences.

Image from Wikipedia.

Example of a spot the difference puzzle. There are 15 differences between the two pictures. Go on have a go you know you want to.

This short but sweet #SoCs was brought to you care of LindaGHill.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 1/2020

Today is Saturday and it’s time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Our prompt this week, should we choose to take it is : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “more.” Start your post with the word “more.” Enjoy!

More or less I am pretty much at the end of my tether right now. It’s 5am and sleep abandoned me about an hour ago. Here I am wide awake no hope of Morpheus returning. Typing this I am becoming more irritated by the minute. I can hear the birds waking up, the pidgeons, crows, rooks and magpies all calling to each other also the foxes are out and about I can hear them too. Today is starting all too early. My drain is uncomfortable so I have taken a paracetamol, I don’t take anything stronger, well that’s another story.

Come dawn if you must

With all your noise and raucous

Nature is awake

Its Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s #SoCs, this week Linda gave us this prompt. “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ch.” Find a word that starts with “ch” and use it as your prompt word. Bonus points if you start your post with that word. Enjoy!

I have chosen to write an Acrostic Nonet entitled Changeling. Mind you there are ten letters in changeling and as I wanted to write a Nonet and not an Etheree I repeated the five syllable line twice…Poetic licence.

Charlotte and Charles so desired a child

Heaven and Earth they would of moved

All types of potions were tried

Never did they conceed

Glady they tried spells

Each one much stronger

Long lost magic

It worked by

Nature’s

Grace.

Cavernous, deeply dark

All stalactites and stalagmites

Vaults so deep, never seen

Eternal entrance to the void

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 2/2020

It’s Saturday again and time for LindaGHill’s Saturday Stream of Consciousness.”Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “directions.” Find a household cleaner/bottle of shampoo/something in the freezer/anything you can find with instructions on it, then copy down a single direction (just one) on how to use/cook/etc. your chosen thing, and make it the first line or word of your post. Then keep writing whatever comes out. Have fun!

I chose a bottle of Domestos, (Bleach).

Ingestion. Seek medical help. Now we should all be aware that bleach inside the body is very dangerous. It is corrosive and will burn and cause massive damage.

So why at a news conference the other week did President Trump surprised nearly everyone when he suggested using powerful cleaning agents, through an injection, as a possible Covid-19 cure.

Yes, indeed he did, but hold on, apparently, he later said it was “scarcasm” whit? I now see why my father always said scarcasm is the lowest form of whit.

That’s all folks

Valediction, the action of saying goodbye or farewell. It’s a not often used word though that does not make it any less valid no to my mind it is a melodic word. It comes from the Latin Vale Dicere literally to say farewell.

People make valedictory speeches, leaving jobs or graduation but we use valediction daily when we part, go to school, working shopping, leave the house our casual, see ya, tar-ra, laters, goodbye they are all valedictory statements.

We use Valediction at weddings, father and mother to daughter or son, at funerals to loved ones and friends though obviously the valediction varies.

Anyway I think it is a beautiful word and that is why I chose it. Shall we have a valedictory song?
