This week’s smile is that I finished NaNoWriMo on the 22nd and I am now over 62,000 words. That is pretty much a record for me and it is not done yet so there will be more words.

Non-Fiction, Prompt

#WeekendCoffeeShare : The Pasta was SPECTACULAR!

Coffee, Pen, Notebook, Caffeine, Cup

Thanks to Eclectic Alli for hosting this prompt.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am still waiting on the results from my sleep study and to received my CPap machine. At least I hope that is what is happening. Medicare is a pain in the butt and I have no idea what is going on. They told me 2 weeks and now it is three weeks and no one returned my call.

If we were having coffee I would tell you I got a new computer. It’s a HP all in one desktop with built in camera and mic for my live streams on youtube. It has a touch screen although I am used to using a mouse and forget I can just touch the screen. Not fully set up yet though.

I am now over 125 subscribers to my youtube channel and NaNoWriMo is still progressing and now that I can type again I have caught up and am almost to the goal for the month. Still writing a thriller, which is a rewrite of the one I did in July. It is a lot of work and research.

Trying to keep up with my blog and my prompts. Did find some new ones.

My dad’s nursing home has Covid again so no more visiting until they are Covid free for 14 days. He got it last time and one of the employees has had it twice so no guarantee that once you have it you won’t get it again.

Be safe everyone,

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 21/2020

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday 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!

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

Ok, now this will send a little weird, but for me it is a necessity. I live in public housing and so we have a population of unsavory characters including bugs of many types. In an effort to control these populations we are to take our trash to the trash chute every day. Now somedays that is not possible for me, plus I don’t like feeding these populations thereby increasing the said populations.

So the last thing I put in my refrigerator was a plastic bag from the grocery store. Any trash that is touched by food goes in that bag until it is taken to the trash chute. Regular trash can go in the trash cans and will be gathered when my aide is ready to fill a bag, but the food trash bag is emptied every night Monday through Friday when the aide is here and then sits overnight in the fridge Saturday and Sunday until she returns.

Welcome to Share Your World!  

Melanie’s Rules:

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 Share Your World post.  Then post the link to that blog post 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.  Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  I don’t manually approve them, but sometimes they don’t show up immediately.  Why is an unsolved mystery.   For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.  You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!

Oddball Questions:

Is cereal soup? Why or why not? Why in the world would cereal be soup. Just because it is usually filled with milk (liquid)? I don’t get it at all. I would say NO!

What are some interesting ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”? “I sleep most of my life away.” “It’s going!”

What was your favorite toy growing up? I had a realistic looking soft doll baby and I loved it. It was about the size of a real baby so I could use real baby clothes on it.

If you have a pet, and you could ask it three questions, what would you ask? Do you really like that dog or cat food you gobble down? Are you bored? Do you wish you had arms and legs like a human?

Non-Fiction, Prompt

Reena’s Exploration Challenge 161

Reena’s Exploration Challenge 161

PROMPT #161

We celebrate Diwali – the festival of lights in India, while America celebrates a new President. 

Light can mean different things to different people, just like the election results in any country.

James Baldwin says,

 One discovers the light in the darkness, 
 that is what darkness is for; 
 but everything in our lives depends 
 on how we bear the light. 
 It is necessary, while in darkness, 
 to know that there is a light somewhere, 
 to know that in oneself, 
 waiting to be found, there is a light. 
 What the light reveals is danger, 
 and what it demands is faith. 

I invite you to meditate on light this week, and share your take on the subject.

The piece you generate can be fiction, poetry, essay, art, photographs or anything else that your creativity brings forth.

Write a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.

Last, but not least, don’t forget to tag the post “Reena’s Exploration Challenge” for easy location in the blog roll.

**********

Briefly, for the last few days, I have had light in my life. I know it won’t last because mania is not supposed to last, and my medication is supposed to prevent it, but sometimes it just happens. Usually, it is when it is triggered. My trigger right now is a new computer that not only lets me write my novel for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), but it makes it easier for me to do live streams on YouTube. I have been so excited I have written over 8000 words, maybe more, and done several non-planned live streams, and one of them lasted over 9 hours, now that is exciting and, for me, light!

I am smiling at my new computer. It finally came in on Thursday and my daughter brought it over here. There is still a lot to do on it, but I have been doing my live streams on it and for the most part it works great. There is a little bit of difference in how I have to do things since everything is now on one computer, but I am still smiling. Keep forgetting the touchscreen so still using the mouse LOL!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 14/2020

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

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!

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

I found myself divorced and I still possessed the wedding ring. I didn’t know what to do with it. I have been divorced 21 years and that stupid ring is till sitting in front of my face on my computer desk shelf. I tried to sell it, but it wasn’t worth anything. That should tell you something right there. It was a gold band with diamond chips all the way around. I didn’t have a real engagement ring and set because the first one we got was dirt cheap and you could almost break the metal by twisting it. My ex lost his ring almost immediately whether on purpose or not I still don’t now. So he bought me this second ring and it wasn’t worth crap either. So here it sits. I can’t bring myself to toss it and it isn’t worth anything and so I torment myself by looking at the ring box.

I remember just before we got divorced that I had been at work and the ring was loose and I tossed scrap plastic in the bin and the ring went flying. I had them shut the line down while I looked for it piece by piece in the scrap bin. Several people helped me and I couldn’t find it and I started to cry (obviously I still had feelings about the upcoming divorce). They got ready to start the line up again and just then I picked up some scrap to put back in the bin and the ring was caught up in the pile of containers. Talk about relief. I don’t know why I am so attached to the stupid ring. I could care less about the man who gave it to me.
