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.

~*~

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.

~*~

The Prompt;

You’ll find full guidelines on the TLT page – here’s the tl;dr:

Pop of Positivity #4 -Theme: Pick 3 Songs That You Want to Dance to and Make You Smile!

“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.

  2. I will, therefore, Tag Four Bloggers to continue the themed positive message along.

QUESTIONS:

Why do we have such trouble telling our loved ones that we love them?  Do you have that kind of communication issue with your loved ones?

Above question inspired by this short, poignant blog post:

https://mitchteemley.com/2019/10/10/love-before-its-too-late-2/ 

I didn’t tell my parents that I loved them. I guess we were from the generation who weren’t taught to do that or it was understood that all children love their parents. I husband and kids and grandkids that I love them. Many times and often. But I find it easier to say it in a text message rather than face to face!

Decorations for holidays?   Spirit lifters or pain in the butt?   Or a mix?  

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.

Do you donate to charities?  Of your time, do you feel money is the only true gift, or other?  (nod to Rory for this idea)

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.

Are you too superstitious or  have you ever played with a Ouija Board?

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.

MLMM- Wordle #154- Campfire

Word Art (10).png

1. Origin✔️
2. Crank✔️
3. Simper (to smile in a silly or self-conscious way)✔️
4. Best✔️
5. Shape
6. Derivative✔️
7. Hours✔️
8. Fragrant✔️
9. Smoke✔️
10. Dapple✔️
11. Squish✔️
12. Species✔️

~*~*~

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

The Sunday Whirl- Wordle# 425

Wordle #425

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.

Kira’s Sunday Scribbles October 13-2019- A Kaleidoscope

 ~*~

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

~*~

 The prompt;

Welcome to Kira’s weekly inspirational art piece.

Let the whole picture tell you a story, or dive into the small intricate details to make one up! Write a poem, a fiction piece or come up with a picture or drawing of your own, that you feel relates to it.

Feel free to copy Kira’s drawing, to add it to your own post!
