Today’s prompt: ‘wee’ or word containing ‘wee’
Teacher. . .

Employer . . .

Dismisses ‘weepiness’ fail hire presume
Preparedness quite important business world
Unfortunate attempt mislead worn-out ‘bittersweet’ fizzled
This morn amid remnants of a tropical storm I was able to access my blog.
To my surprise I found sitting atop my picture an icon I’d used elsewhere in
All I could hope for was to find an answer to undo this most recent tech
Fortunately there is a rainbow following the rain (or hopeful will be) and
I can manage to ascertain the cause (or person) responsible for this prank.
Finally found drive blog more often
Lucky me wi-fi connection malfunction
Early morn felt pangs internet defeat
Cable provider proud occupant driver’s seat
Amazing technology still scads inability control
Shopping trip cool off cessation feeling blood boil
Creative gal love crochet items since back-in-day
Drive near hour specific brand yarn sale underway
Unfamiliar territory avoid traffic side street turn off
Lucky me, a one-way and ahead approaching car – city cop
Flagged pullover in progress driver warning heeds
Overgrown tree branches hid traffic sign politely she pleads
Rethink out-of-town sales option save shopper oodles cash
Fortunate day honest error, no GPS, result drive humongous laugh.
Reflecting back it’s hard to focus on whatever actually was positive as
daily reads and gruesome tales were the constant everywhere.
Step outside amidst ‘The Twilight Zone’.
I listened, I watched, I realized whatever I wished for was not in the cards
so best to accept fate.
For those who faced this most difficult time, remained positive and somehow
managed to be productive, I applaud you.
As a popular country western singer related, “This feels like prison.”
For certain since it’s NO you can’t do this and NO you can’t do that to this date.
My entire life I’ve never been a quitter. The Pandemic took its toll on me.
Slowly the depressed state of mind set in when I realized the scheduled
organization of my apartment wasn’t going to occur.
As the DIY list grew so did the anger and bitterness.
So many personal questions void of real answers or solutions.
I’ve grown tired of remembering that which I wish to forget so instead
I’ve given thought to writing more about what brought ‘LOVE’ into my
life before and after the empty nest syndrome.
Arts and crafts from this day forward – bi-weekly posts.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 27, 2021
The final touches, the outer border of the half-double crocheted Temperature
afghan/throw, the end of a work in progress that sadly took a back seat to
other craft projects when the beginning of a brand new relationship filled
with hope for a future together suddenly turned sour.
Today’s prompt: list
A new month – a new list
For my own personal emotional state I chose to take a hiatus from blogging, a decision
I’d considered and voiced a few months ago.
I wrote about the sudden newest reasons then decided to delete them.
Truth is there’s little I can do other than accept that which I have no control thereof.
Back to the prompt ‘list’:
I need to find time to review my notifications and thank new followers.
Those who don’t follow guidelines with regard to likes, comments and follows
I intend to unfollow them.
The same decision stands for those with inappropriate content in their posts.
This process will likely take time and organization.
I’m hoping when I finish I’ll be blessed again with the inspiration to write.
Today’s prompt word: ring
Cell phone conversation – fictitious name . . .
Ring – Ring – Ring
Crista: ‘Hi, how are you?’
Me: ‘With whom am I speaking?
Crista: ‘It’s your friend, Crista.’
Passing thought = OH!
Me: ‘Sorry I didn’t recognize your voice.’ -‘I’m doing okay.’ – ‘And how are you?’
Crista: ‘My days are so busy.’ – ‘I keep meaning to ring your number then it’s too
late to call.’
Passing thought = REALLY!
A short conversation – my new practice for long overdue callers – 10 minutes max.
Ring – Ring – Ring
Me: ‘Sorry to cut our catching up short – there’s an incoming call on my
other cell phone.’
Crista: ‘Okay, let’s stay in contact.’
Passing thought: I WOULDN’T COUNT ON IT.
The above is how I feel towards the few who were part of my face-to-face life for
25 to 35 years who fail to call then feeling guilty contact me with what I consider
a fake explanation.
You promised you’d be there for me. Remember?? Then you disappeared
from my life.
If I call you I can count on leaving a voice message and if lucky a return call in 3 to 4
There are many sayings to read with regard on how you allow others to treat you.
Interesting though people dislike when you give them a taste of their own
No, I haven’t heard from Crista in over two years and I refuse to call her since it was
always I who took the initiative.
I doubt I’m mistaken about the definition of friendship being a two-way street.
I’m certain though there’ll be a Christmas card in my mailbox again this year.
Sorry, the intended recipient will place it unopened in the trash same as year 2019.
It was nice knowing you – how quickly people forget promises to another who fell
on hard times.
Le jour is a masculine noun in the French language.
