The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 31, 2021

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last photo you took.” Take the last photo you snapped. What’s the first word that comes to mind when you look at it? That word is your prompt. Enjoy!

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

The last photo I remember taking was of me in the rehab hospital with a broken foot and that brings back terrible memories of the horrible treatment that I received and the pain from a broken foot which is still lingering on as I am doing physical therapy now trying to regain full use of the foot. I was told it could still take months.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 24, 2021

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “color/colour.” Use it as a noun, a verb, or pick a color and write about it–use it any way you like. Have fun!

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

I have been spending the last few days playing around with color. I have been making new backgrounds, overlays, banners, etc. for both Twitch and YouTube for my live streams and videos. I decided to use bright, but light color mixtures which remind me of paint swirling around. I used it for instagram posts as well.

#SoCS, Non-Fiction, Prompt

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 3, 2021

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “contains ‘igh.’” Find a word that contains the letters “igh” in that order and use it in your post. Enjoy!

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

My eyesight is getting worse. I have diabetes and it is one of the problems due to diabetes. The higher your sugar levels the worse your eyesight is. The frightening thought is that at any time, without warning, I could become blind. I have diabetic retinopathy. The damage is not reversible. I already have loss of feeling in my feet and fingers due to neuropathy from the diabetes.

The night I broke my foot I couldn’t feel the bottom half of my body and so when the foot turned under me and broke, I didn’t even feel it (the good thing), but by the time I arrived at the hospital it was beginning to hurt. Once I had a splinter in the bottom of my foot which I didn’t feel going in or feel the doctor digging it out.

I have over eight different major things wrong with me. That is why my kids are fighting to have me put into an assisted living facility. It is dangerous for me to live alone.

As I stared up at the dark rain clouds, my mind wandered until the first drop fell down splashing me and I had to run for cover.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 12, 2021

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “drive.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

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

I absolutely hate driving. My dad forced me to learn to drive as a teenager and for that I will be grateful because right now since I have the broken foot I am constantly trying to find someone to drive me somewhere for all these doctor appointments and other things that crop up. They are not happy and neither am I. I will be glad when I can go back to driving myself when I have to. I have a neighbor who thinks I am his personal driver. He has been unhappy since I have been in the hospital so much and now the broken foot and still no driving. He survived before I came into his life and he will survive after I leave his life. I am referring to the fact that I am trying to get into assisted living and I will not even own a car at that point since I can’t afford to repair or insure one. Hopefully I won’t have to do many things that might need a ride. Depending on where I move I can use my medical transport, but will most likely have to change doctors depending on how far away I am from my current ones since my kids can’t be driving me all over. They aren’t happy now and I try not to have to ask them if I can help it, but sometimes I have to go to the doctor’s. I can get groceries delivered, but not the doctor’s office LOL!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 5, 2021

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yarn.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

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

Balls of yarn! My cat loved them and if she found one she would spend the night rolling it around the house. In the morning we would find that there was yarn wrapped around everything and you had to watch where you were walking. She did the same thing with a spool of thread. We would spend the next day trying to unwrap and unknot the yarn or thread. Sometimes it didn’t matter where you hid them because she would find them. And heaven forbid if you left a project in progress out somewhere. It would end up a tangled mess and wrapped around all the furniture.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “collect.” Use the word “collect” any way you’d like. Have fun!

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

I used to collect books, especially hard back books, but my kids told me they weren’t moving my books ever again so I had to part ways with them. I don’t have the room for them now and with moving to an assisted living facility there would be even less room.

I started to collect arts and crafts supplies and they have gotten out of control as well. I will have to part with them when I move. Most of them anyhow.

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

This made me think about rocks. I remember someone, not sure who, trying to teach me how to flip rocks out over the water. Or is it skimming rocks? Not sure, somehow skimming sounds about right.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “growth.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

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

I watched my latest grandson be born in December 2019 and then the lockdown happened and so I have only seen him briefly since then. My daughter brought him over last night celebrate a late Mother’s Day and I was amazed at his growth. He was running around and getting into everything as my place is not child-proofed. There was no reason as I rarely saw him except a quick glance into the car for the most part. I missed all of his “firsts,” and I really hated that happened. I was so surprised to see him last night. Babies change a lot in a year.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “nerve.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

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

As I was growing up my mom always referred to my anxiety as a case of nerves. She was always giving me nerve medicine to calm down my nerves, etc.

I have also heard it said as you are getting on my last nerve, by someone just before they bashed them over the head or broke their leg, arm, etc.

Right now my nerves are on edge and very raw. I am anxiety-ridden for sure. This damn pandemic is not helping matters any. People who are normally gentle can get a bad case of nerves due to the pandemic.
