Share Your World – June 3, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/06/03/share-your-world-6-3-19/

Do you think there is such a thing as a ‘gendered’ brain?  

Is this what they mean when they ask which “brain” a man is thinking with?

What is the silliest fear you have? 

None of my fears are silly!  Including my quite understandable fear of raisins.

Out of your family members, who are you closest to?

Who ever I’m sitting next to at the table.

What is something you’ll NEVER do again?

I’d tell you, but I’d have to kill you.

If you’d like, please share a photo or a comment about something good that’s happened recently!  Thanks! 

Word of the Day: Contest

And here is a Word OF the Day from Dee, Kate, Kristian & Cyranny, bloggers who like many of us, miss WordPress’ Daily Prompt, but who have decided to provide us with a new outlet!  Today is Contest (https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2019/06/01/contest/)

The great Kitten Staring Contest of 2019.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday

This post is part of SoCS (https://lindaghill.com/2019/05/31/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-june-1-19/).

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “silent/silence.” Use one or both in your post. Have fun!

I, like others answering this prompt, was thinking of the question – if a tree falls in a forest when no one is around, does it make a sound?

This then reminded me that, at work this week, while we were all waiting desperately for the day to be over (I don’t remember which day – probably all of them), someone was wondering – if a workplace is empty, does the work still exist?  Well, it was something like that….

These are the kinds of thoughts that reign freely at work at this time of year (well, not just at this time of year, but it does seem to be more frequently expressed now), when the sun is shining, there are gardens to be gardened, and much wine to be drunk on decks and patios.


Share Your World – May 27, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/05/27/share-your-world-5-27-19/

Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist?

I’m pessimistically optimistic.

Can War ever be just?

It is never just war.

Think about the people you love most in your life, what do you do for them?

I post pictures like this:

Are you health conscious?

I am now wondering what unhealth conscious might look like, or health unconcious…

Share Your World – May 20, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/05/20/share-your-world-5-20-19/).

Is it better to suspect something (bad or hurtful) and not know or to have your worst fears confirmed by sure knowledge?

Are we talking about Game of Thrones???

What makes you laugh aloud? Crack up? Laugh until your sides split? When was the last time you had a great big belly laugh?

Things no one else seems to understand…

Do you suppose Noah had woodpeckers in the ark? If he did, where did he keep them? Apologies to the Darwinians in the crowd…this is merely for fun, okay?

With the termites…

Why is “Charlie” short for “Charles when they are the same number of letters?

Because, English

What happened in your world this past week that made you feel thankful, joyful or grateful?

Kittens getting along.  It only looks like they’re trying to bite each other’s heads off.

Share Your World – May 6, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/05/06/share-your-world-5-6-19/).

Do you believe in soul mates? If so, do you think there is only one person meant to share that bond with you, out there in the world?  (credit to Cyranny of Cyranny’s Cove)

Well, yeah, because without a sole mate, I would only have one shoe…oh, wait….didn’t read the whole question….

Ice cream cone, shake or other ice cream concoction?

No.  Unless it’s strawberry, and a shake.

What would be the hat to end all hats? What could you wear on your head that would make people stop what they are doing and stare in awe and amazement?

Not sure Jasper will cooperate though…

What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time?

Cheeto presidents…

Blogging from A to Z Challenge: Z is for… (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2019 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (A picture-story a day (in the life, so to speak)), and as I have every year, I am going to be blogging my theme letters on the fly – this year I didn’t even plan to do otherwise!  So, here goes nothing 🙂

Today, Z is for…Zee End!

Well, there you have it.  A to Z finished for another year.  Doing nothing specific was kind of fun, but I think next year I need a real theme again because that really pushes me, plus I usually learn some cool stuff.

So, farewell (for now) from Jasper and Elliot and Nicholas, and me…Mr. Dressup (if you are Canadian, you laughed!)

Blogging from A to Z Challenge: Y is for…Yacht (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2019 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (A picture-story a day (in the life, so to speak)), and as I have every year, I am going to be blogging my theme letters on the fly – this year I didn’t even plan to do otherwise!  So, here goes nothing 🙂

Today, Y is for…Yacht (or a part of one).

I don’t know why, but I like taking pictures of masts.  Not the ships (boats?) themselves – that would be expected.  But masts. Don’t ask why…there is no point.

So, here are some masts from a photo excursion this weekend.

Blogging from A to Z Challenge: W is for…Why Not? (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2019 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (A picture-story a day (in the life, so to speak)), and as I have every year, I am going to be blogging my theme letters on the fly – this year I didn’t even plan to do otherwise!  So, here goes nothing 🙂

Today, W is for…Why Not?

Meaning, when I go for a walk, I typically take pictures others might not take, and when asked “why?”, I say “why not?”  Here is a small selection of Why Not photos from today’s walk!
