Question Fun Directory
Welcome to The Daily Four!
Today’s Questions to the Readers are….
What’s your favourite Hot Beverage?
Need you ask! Coffee! Latté, cappuccino, black drip….
In short Coffee.
I like tea too but not my first option.
Do you ever use essential oils or perhaps burn incense?
Essential oils are good for massage. The relieve muscle pain and cramps. Also helps to ease tired muscles. So I use them sometimes.
Incense, well never. I don’t like strong fragrances.
Everybody loves cake – but what is your healthy favourite?
I am not so much a cake person. But I love carrot cakes from a certain patisserie! It has vegetables in it and walnuts too. So it could be called healthy option.
If I have to choose another treat in lieu of cake, I would choose sugar free chocolate. It satisfies my craving for sweet but has less carbs.
Fun Question – Are you a Puddle Splasher?? [Are you a Wellie Wearer or Thrower!?]
In the days long long ago, I would have jumped into puddles. But now I am super careful because I can’t afford to fall and damage my knee(s)! So no splashing or jumping. Carefully stepping away from puddles and slippery mud.
Welcome to Week 194 of Three Line Tales.

They were glad to find shelter as the weather was turning to cold, the snowfall perhaps a few hours away and as Alex was the eldest she had assumed the responsibility for the younger two, in the absence of any adults.
She felt a tug on her hand to see Sara looking up at her with scared eyes, ” are we going to stay here Alex, hope those men following us don’t find us here” with a lump in her throat she reassured her that they were safe here and took out the food she had packed to share with Sara and her brother.
They had escaped the mercenaries who had destroyed their village and had captured or killed the adults who had resisted this inhuman treatment.
You’ll find full guidelines on the TLT page – here’s the tl;dr:
- Write three lines inspired by the photo prompt (& give them a title if possible).
- Link back to this post (& check the link shows up under the weekly post).
- Tag your post with 3LineTales (so everyone can find you in the Reader).
- Read and comment on other TLT participants’ lines.

“What is “Pop!” – Pop of Positivity?”
“Pop of Positivity” It’s based on one simple thing. “Life doesn’t have to suck all the time.” Let’s face it… There’s a Helluva lot of negativity in the real world, and it’s pretty hard to escape it. I thought of this as a means to brighten up everyone’s day. Taking time away from thinking about the negative and switch gears and think of the positive. Perhaps, we can all share some smiles along the way too.
- Each Thursday, I’ll pick a Theme (Naturally, of something positive).
- I will, therefore, Tag Four Bloggers to continue the themed positive message along.
- You, the recipient of the tag can select anyway fit on how you want to share this positivity. (Example: Any 3 songs that make you want to tap your feet, make you sing, and shake your thang! Any era you like! Just have fun with this one!! ).
- You will create a Pingback to the original post, as well as notifying your tagged blogger that you have selected them.
Fairly easy, right? Let’s say we give this a shot, okay?
Theme: Pick 3 Songs That You Want to Dance to and Make You Smile
Pharrell Williams– Happy
( My all time happy song)
Tylor Swift- Me
Bee Gees -Stayin’ Alive
Hope my selection makes you smile and breakout in a dance.

The slanting rays of the sun touched
The waves of the ocean lightning flames
Where ever the gold touched the
The cool blue of the water
The last dying kiss of the sun
Bestowing glamorous hues to the vast expanse
Of the ocean, expanding to the entire horizon

Tuesday Writing Prompt- October 15-2019

I will tell you what is the ideal evening for me
Sitting comfortably with a few of my favorite things
A hot cup of coffee in my best mug
A book which holds my attention
And music to accompany this idyllic scenario
Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less
Use the picture and/or the word(s) favorite things as inspiration

Well joking aside, it’s so true of some of our so called friends. Be careful with the confidence you share with your “friends” !
Some secrets are best kept, if they are kept to oneself.

Both I guess. But as we get older it’s more of later than former. Though I still love to decorate with fresh flowers and even cost more money than I like, I still prefer them to other forms of decorations.
I do. But only to those charities which I trust. I have thought of volunteering but that scheme is still in the air. But I give away things that I haven’t used since a couple of years. Sometimes people need money and at others goods can be of use too. Kindness and smiles are gifts that can be generously shared and are always beneficial both to the receiver and the giver.
As kids we did but only as a joke. I am not superstitious at all. Nothing to fear from broken mirrors, black cats out walking under the ladders. Number 13 doesn’t hold any terror for me either.
3. Simper (to smile in a silly or self-conscious way)✔️
Under the dappled shadow of the old elm tree
The fragrant fire blazes and warms
The smoke from the roasting meat smells good
The best way to cook the potatoes
Is to squish them after baking in the hot coals
Better crank up the flames because it may take
Hours if you continue at this pace
All these survival techniques are handed down
From our forefathers, generation after generation
The derivative of experience and knowledge
But now this new generation is failing humanity
The origin of the species maybe certain
But it’s fate lies now in the hands of simpering fools
Style, dry, collide, free, salt, follow, finger, light, mine, forge, shy, cats
Though she was a shy person, she was found of making finger puppets and putting in a show for the children. She had made a few puppets of cats, which she would incorporate into her show. Her style of puppeteering would lighten up the mood of the audience, specially as she gave out a lot of free tickets for the people who couldn’t afford them. She forged a lot of good relations with people of her neighborhood. Her shows were never dry but full of humor. One incident brought her a lot of following, when the drywall behind which she stood, collapsed but she kept her wits about it, shouting out loud, ” it’s the salt which has collided with sugar to break open the wall to reveal this theater of mine!
The people loved her witty retort and the room filled with laughter.

The Sunday Whirl- Wordle #425
Life through a kaleidoscope is very interesting
A tumble of colors and visions presenting all angles
What we see depends on how we think and perceive
One can see the devil and someone else can see an angel
An enchanting landscape full of possibilities for some
Or an obstacle course presenting difficulties for another
It’s mostly we see is what we think we shall see in life
Keep an open mind and heart to observe the beauty around us
