Today’s prompt: “on your/my plate”
Although not a believer in wasting food, I disagreed
with a back-in-the-day mealtime rule often followed in
‘Finish everything on your plate‘.
Similar to adults, children’s appetites differ on a daily basis.
Common sense . . .
Place a small portion of each food item on the child’s
plate. Allow them to ask for seconds.
If the child doesn’t finish their meal, then no dessert after
World hunger was often an excuse used to make a child feel
In later years a visit to a one-price dine-in restaurant left me
near state of shock.
I watched as young children accessed the buffet table and filled their
plates sky high with food.
Sadly, unable to eat this amount of food or a dislike of their selections
the plate soon met with the trash.
Perhaps the parents of these children should have enforced that rule
of ‘finish everything on your plate‘.
Today’s prompt: ‘back of the fridge’
To maintain a fridge requires organization, think >>>
Tall items at back of the fridge, smaller ones up front 😊
All food items come with small print dates of expiration – check
for them. Label storage containers, mark the date and contents.
Failure to follow either of the above good suggestions results in
stored foods transformed into one-of-a-kind refrigerated creations. 😢
Today’s prompt: ‘ring’
It’s a bit sad whenever reminiscing the simplicity of yesteryears.
Do you miss the sound of the landline phones – hear the ring?
Cell phones, technology’s replacement, to me at times are a mere
Do you like those constant notification dings from early morn to
whatever time you turn your phone off at night?
I don’t particularly care for them.
I’m aware you can shut them off; however, most people keep them
And lo and behold you can set individual ringtones for different folks.
You’ll know who the caller is and choose to accept or allow the call to
go to voicemail.
You’re in traffic and you hear the assigned ring from a friend, do you
If you’re smart, you’ll choose to keep your eyes on the road.
I pretend I’m back-in-the-day when away from home I wasn’t bothered
with constant ring, ding and ring.
Prompt: use word beginning with letter ‘u’

This week’s prompt words: wash/awash
Once her daily quota, three machine loads of wash,
were hung on the clothesline to dry it was time to pack
a lunch and head to the beach area of her summer residence.
From the comforts of her lounge chair the young mother
peering thru her expensive sunglasses for several hours
kept a watchful eye on her three children playing close
to the awash.
This week’s prompt:
‘first 2-5 words at the top of the page of reading material nearby’
Sitting at my computer desk, I looked to my left and atop of
Friday’s literary heap, temporary clutter, stared back at me one
of several journals I’ve purchased in recent months.
The first 5 words read, “always remember YOU are BRAVER than”.
I prefer lined journals and find them to be quite beneficial to me,
a notetaker of important info for possible usage at a later date.
At the same time, I took note of how each journal I’d purchased
was based on an inspirational title.
