Share Your World 2-18-19

Rules from the originating poster above:

I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a SYW  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.
  4.  Ping-backs are activated and are working well.  For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.

********************************

Questions:

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time? Personally I prefer to sleep and block out the world for great amounts of time. If I couldn’t sleep I would read or write.

What job would you be terrible at? Accounting for one thing.

When was the last time you climbed a tree? If I ever did I was very little before my immense fear of heights took over. 

Do you count your steps? No!

Bonus question (just because it’s really silly)   What’s the dumbest way you’ve injured yourself? I stuck the corner of a tri-corner paper towel into my eye and scratched the cornea which to this day still causes me lots of grief.

#WEEKENDCOFFEESHARE : Possibility of snow again!


#WEEKENDCOFFEESHARE : LOOKS LIKE SNOW MAYBE!

Directions from ECLECTICALLI

Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?

All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from Friday February 8th at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday February 11th at 7am (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!

*********************************

We have several days in the near future where they are predicting snow again. Come in and get something warm to drink. I live on the 6th floor and unless it is very windy and that is cold windy I have my windows open and the heater off. I rarely need the heater on up here. Not that I have to pay for the heat anyway. It comes with the rent. I just have to pay for my electric which includes an electric stove, but I don’t cook  much so that isn’t a big deal. With the help I get from the state I haven’t paid an electric bill yet and I have been here almost a year now. Cool!

I need to try and shower tonight. After last week’s fall I couldn’t lift my legs up enough to climb into that huge tub. I wish I just had a shower. My days of soaking in the tub are over with all my body aches. If I got in I would never get up and out. It is hard enough taking a shower.

SoCS for Saturday February 16


SoCS for Saturday February 16

Here’s your prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yawn.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “yawn,” when you sit down to write your post. Enjoy!

Here’s the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The,’” or will simply be a single word to get you started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!

When I think of yawns I think of the fact that they seem to be catching. One person yawns and then everyone in the room yawns. No matter how hard I try not to, I follow suit if someone yawns and I see it.
