And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2020/01/27/share-your-world-1-27-2020/

The age of enlightenment.

What mystery do you wish you knew the answer to?

When is the age of enlightenment going to happen?

Does absolute power corrupt absolutely?

Absolutely.

What outdoor activity haven’t you tried, but would like to?

Outdoor?  Think I’ll pass. (Just kidding..this stuff is long gone now!)

 


RagTag Daily Prompt: Extinct

The snow that shut us down earlier this week is now extinct.

Yeah, Glen?
It’s time to leave those chickens alone – I knew I shouldn’t have snuck you out of the hospital…

Just Jot it January, 2020: January 18

Just Jot it January, day 18!  And Stream of Consciousness Saturday!

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “movie title.” Take the title of the last movie you watched (just the title, not the premise of the movie), and base your post on that title. Have fun!  (https://lindaghill.com/2020/01/17/the-friday-reminder-for-socs-jusjojan-2020-daily-prompt-jan-18th/)

The last movie I watched, eh?  That would first require me to remember what that was.  And also, do you mean the last movie I watched all the way through, or just had on TV for a while while I was sitting here doing other things, like blogging?  Let’s go for the whole movie then.  I think the last movie we watched was Avengers: Endgame.  Well, maybe there was something else after that, but I am not sure.  Maybe the last movie I watched was It’s a Wonderful Life.  And let me be clear:  we did NOT watch these in a theatre.  I can’t remember the last time we went to a theatre.  It may have been for the first of the newest three Star Wars movies.  Or maybe something else?  We don’t get out much…what can I say?

Either way, the Endgame of this post is that, despite never going out to movies, it’s still a Wonderful Life.

January Writing Prompts, Day 18 – Portraits of time

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/), January’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2020/01/01/january-writing-prompts-3/

My portraits of time seem to contain a lot of blotches from not doing all the things I want, or say I want, to do with my time.  But then, what’s wrong with sitting and reading when I could be cleaning the house?  And how can I work in the yard when it’s raining all the time?  And going to kickboxing after work when it’s so dark already it must be bed time?  Plans versus reality keeps my portraits of time blurry.

Share Your World – January 13, 2020

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2020/01/13/share-your-world-1-13-20/

What’s something your brain tries to make you do, which you have to will yourself NOT to do?  (could be a bad habit, a physical response to something…your interpretation is as good as mine! )

If I told you, I would have to k… oops…say no more…

When someone finds out what you do, or where you are from, what question do they always ask you?

No one ever finds out.

What’s something terrifying that we’ve all come to accept as a fact of life?

Should governments make laws to protect people from harming themselves?  Could that even work?  (yes this one is deep, maybe too deep).

Too deep.


RagTag Daily Prompt: Daffy

A response in starting over with a new daily avoidance (or non-avoidance, as the case may be), here with the Ragtag Daily Prompt (https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2020/01/15/rdp-wednesday-daffy/), today is Daffy.”

It would be pretty daffy to go out in this…

Just Jot it January, 2020: January 15

Just Jot it January, day 15!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 15th, 2020, is One-Liner Wednesday!  (https://lindaghill.com/2020/01/15/one-liner-wednesday-jusjojan-the-15th-2020-a-door/)

Welcome to snowpocalypse 2020!

January Writing Prompts, Day 15 – Bring me the cheese please

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/), January’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2020/01/01/january-writing-prompts-3/

Bring me the cheese, please.  And while you’re at it, throw in some grapes and olive, and don’t forget the chips and crackers!

Just Jot it January, 2020: January 13

Just Jot it January, day 10!

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 13th, 2020, is “subscribe.” Use the word “subscribe” any way you’d like. Have fun! (https://lindaghill.com/2020/01/13/daily-prompt-jusjojan-the-13th-2020/)

I don’t really subscribe to the idea that when it snows, we still have to go to work.
