I was going to write a long stream but I’m caught up in this newest binge and I can’t let go.

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

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “let go.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “let go.” Enjoy!


Thank you, Linda and Kim.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 27th, 2022, is “understanding.” Use the word “understanding” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Understanding our differences and loving each other not just in spite, but because of said difference is the path to peace.

Even better, if we spend time to understand ourselves we’ll see our reflection in others.

When we cry or laugh together we show our understanding.

Okay maybe too glib but I believe these in my heart. I’m still working on all of it.


One-liner Wednesday is a fun prompt courtesy of Linda G. Hill. As is January’s #Just Jot it January. Click on the link above to learn more.

Jotting in January is a just thing to do. 🖖


Journaling has always been hit and miss for me. I was most successful last year. In January at the beginning of the pandemic I heard someone say the more people who wrote about our world and related it personally, the better for the archeologists who find said diaries.

I was extremely consistent and as accurate as I could be and let my worst fears, angers, and imaginations go wild. I managed longer than any other attempt at writing a journal. I think I wrote daily at least until June. Then the journal informed my Camp NaNo project Pandamapocalypse.

By September, I had fallen into my old habits. At first, I missed a day here or there. Before I knew it months had gone by with no entries.😪

At least here at the blog and Duolingo, I’ve been consistent for quite a while, a couple of years, actually. So, not a journal per se. But an entry a day. Yay!

Check out the rules and make friends for JusJoJan.


Per Linda:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and my very first birthday-Stream-of-Consciousness-Saturday is: “icing on the cake.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase “icing on the cake.” Enjoy!

Remember how I felt I was finished with my Doctor Who Starry Night Diamond Painting? I had thought poking in the last few diamonds, cover with protective, glossy, Modge Podge would be it. But finding those last few empty spots to fill, figuring out what number you are looking at, even with a magnifying glass, seemed nearly impossible. But I was now down to one or two spots. I reached over to look at my Fire to hit the pause. Instead, I knocked over the full container of the number I was aiming for next.

The icing on the cake was finding most of the gems fell on the floor. That’s when I learned how many had fallen since I started the project. A quick sweep produced a huge pile of multicolored plastic bits and hair and dust. Yuck! I need one of those cute little vacuum cleaners made just for diamond painters. I spent most of the day cleaning the mess. Then I finished the popping on diamonds. And finally organized the leftovers from this project. As soon as I cover the painting with the gloss and paint on a frame I’ll take it’s last picture.

I can’t wait to start my next and actually my first DA project. I ordered it LAST January, received it last June. But my friend gifted this Doctor Who to me and my other friend and herself. So it became a group project. It was fun chatting and working together on Zoom.


My mission for Fridays is to have something accomplished. Some weeks I don’t even come close to a finished product. This week, there are a few things I’m proud of. Even though close is all I got.

Probably will finish tomorrow on another scrappy slipper socks for charity, using up some small skeins.
Only a couple empty ‘drill’ spots. I’ll do those before bed. Tomorrow I will ‘Mod Podge’ and paint the border. Then I will look at my next project. Try painting? Sunset beach Diamond Painting? Rock painting? So many artsy-fartsy things to try!
Finish of a perfect day, including a mile walk with Kali.

Now I just need to find music time!

From a voice-to-text query for a One-liner:

A perfectionist walked into a bar…apparently, the bar wasn’t set high enough.

#JusJoJan, January 18, 2022, Cycle


The cycle of Pogonip, White Death, or freezing fog to the rest of us seems over. I’m kind of sad as it was fun to see from the window. And now we slip back into the extreme draught. On the plus side, it’ll be warm enough for a while to take my walks. But one last picture of the leftovers from the trees and bushes.

Dropped Pogonip is now snow on the driveway.

See the strings of icy lace on the lower right? They’ve been growing for days from our Pogonip.

My joy is the weather around here. Well, when it’s snowy and beautiful. Pogonip tried to fool us.

The ‘nip’ started falling from the trees like snow. This fog seems never ending. And it’s cold! I can understand why being out in it could cause illness. It hurts to breathe it. But for this homebody looking through the window, it’s a joy.

What I am reporting isn’t a rainy day. We’ve been having strange weather. Freezing fog that makes everything looks eerie. I had to take pictures at about 10 this morning. Some of the fog had started to burn off. Wish I would have had my phone handy when I took Kali out at 6.

That is not snow. Frost, I guess. But in this last picture Kali is strutting to her favorite part of the yard.

By the way, if you saved up for a rainy day, would you leave your cozy abode to go spend it? Let’s save for life. Let’s enjoy the umbrella and boots and mud puddles!
