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

No snow predicted for this weekend so we can have coffee with no interruptions. This has been an expensive week for me. First I decided to have cable and internet WiFi added to my apartment. What I wasn’t expected was that my endocrinologist decided my diabetes which has become worse and gone from type 2 to type 1 that I need an insuling pump. I am not sure how that is going to fit into my already tight budget, but he feels that it would be better for my health. If I had known I would have probably put the cable and internet off, but oh well I love having tv and internet like I was used to. The iPhone hotspot worked, but not well.

Love Me, Love Me Not by Teresa Smeigh 2019

Daisy was lazily daydreaming eyeing the gorgeous roses Tim got her. She had never seen gold-tipped roses before. “He loves me, he loves me not,” she murmured.

The ringing phone turned out to be her best friend. She gave her attention to Janey.

Janey was babbling on about the new man she had met. The way she described him you would think he was perfect in every way. Daisy started to tune her out. She was thinking about Tim.

Suddenly she tuned back in. Did she hear something about gold-tipped roses?

“Can you believe it, he brought me gold-tipped roses?”

#WEEKENDCOFFEESHARE : Possibility of snow again!

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.

No Decorations This Year by Teresa Smeigh 2019

Every day through December 24, the residents were having a contest to see who would have the best window decorations for Christmas. Three-year old Shelly, on the third floor, was thrilled with the whole idea of Santa coming this year. She had her list ready.

Everyday mom opened the window to let her look out to see what had been added. Shelly started to clap and jump at the newest Santa she saw. She leaned forward for a closer look and lost her footing. Mom didn’t react fast enough. Shelly went head first through the window. The lights went out!

It is just after 10:30 PM Sunday night and the long predicted snow has started. It is light now, but supposed to be for 2 days so who knows what it will bring. The bad thing is this week is full of doctor appointments. Hoping that it amounts to nothing. I can no longer shovel so depending on what we receive in inches will depend on whether I have to cancel or not. I live in a senior high-rise apartment dwelling and they don’t want us out and about until they have cleared the driving and walking areas. Heaven knows I can’t physically do it so will have to wait until tomorrow and see what develops.

I could use a nice cup of hot tea right now. I have my windows open since I live on the 6th floor and the heat rises. Rarely do I have to put the heat on and my windows are almost always open and while inside I live in shorts all winter.

My body is still aching more than usual due to the fall on the concrete floor here on  my knees. Public housing, so no carpets with padding just that indoor/outdoor carpet that covers the concrete. Ugh! Not my first fall either.

Recently I had a fall. My floors are concrete with a thin indoor/outdoor carpet on it so the landing was stupendously painful. I landed on my hands and knees. Days later my knees are still very bruised. I can’t stand to just touch them. Getting up was extremely difficult. I have problems getting up anyhow without the additional pain to my already arthritic knees. It would have been very funny to watch me getting up though. You would be laughing heartily!
