Snow Friday


I woke early this last official day of winter to this scene:

It was still snowing with big flakes maybe a inch or more across. Yet there was blue in the sky above our house.

Then a huge monster came with it’s mouth agape.

I wish we would have had more snow this winter. Maybe it will be a rainy spring Or pre-summer as I call it.

Happy Friday, and Happy Spring

I spent my Saturday listening to a podcast of controversy, travesty of facts and fictions distorted by money and lies. But fishing through we still don’t know what to do or who caused what. Still, I think it best to hear all sides to see the forests in shades of trees.

 

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-sty.” Find a word that ends in “-sty” or use the word “sty.” Enjoy!

My very favorite place in the whole world is a beach. No matter the weather or the type. As long as it is the ocean. I’m not one for lakes. They are pretty. But my soul doesn’t feel that marvelous head to toe feeling I get smelling the salty breeze, feeling the squish of sand escaping under my feet with the bubbling surf suds. The sparkle of the sand in the sunshine, the change of color as clouds wander overhead. Treasure abounds with each shell or scurrying crab or bird. Farther away, seeing a whale migration or school of fish helping the magical ecology of the watery world. Ah, beach.

Just Jot It January is a prompt brought to you by Linda G. Hill.


Since we don’t have newspapers or plastic bags, what do we line our smaller trash cans with?

Just asking for a friend,

who still loves the environment and the ocean.

Look. I get it. I’ve been carrying around reusable bags attached to my purse for more than a decade. But by outlawing these plastic bags, my reusing of the bags as trash can liners or plarn items will be over as soon as the “bag bag” chair is empty. That chair was to be a laundry bag made of plarn. But when we moved I stuffed it with our extra plastic bags. Once here the cats and then the dog found that bag the best seat in the house. So let’s see what ideas others have about this soon to be small dilemma. Ideas?

One-liner Wednesday is the easy prompt given to us by Linda G. Hill.


Life as We Knew It (Last Survivors, #1)Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Every now and then a person needs a good disaster movie or book. I’ve yet to figure out why. I think it is watching how predictable those in charge cause even more problems and how the human spirit can rise to the occasion in spite of everything. By the way, this one doesn’t have zombies. Imagine that!

I bought this Kindle book and its Audible companion quite a few years ago and just forgot about it. I don’t know what brought it to mind now, but I am glad I found it again.

Not only is the story engaging from the very beginning, Emily Bauer’s narration keeps it all alive. I love that this particular disaster stays rather calm in the crises as the mother tries to get her family prepared and she fiercely protects them.

The story starts with a family that is probably as familiar as our own, divorce included. It shows how love is still there even where the living together failed. And the children of this break up are not less well off, just different.

As the world becomes spread out because of the lack of working communication devices, the daughter keeps her diary going. It is through her communications with herself that we learn the story of life after the meteor hit the moon and causes tidal waves, earthquakes, volcanos and more. The global mess becomes personal as this teen tries to adjust from boys and kisses and proms to washing the laundry by hand and staving off hunger.

I highly recommend this book. There was a lot to learn here for all of us.
