Light and bright is this Saturday morning

Let’s not get into a fight and ignore the slight

Always keep in sight the target

To enjoy each day to its fullest

You say it’s my right and I am always right

But living in peace is also important

Letting go of one’s rights is good if you

Make others happy with a bit of compromise

Get out of tight corners and fights

~*~

These are the words I could think of now!

This is an easy one. I love nuts. Or should I say I’m nuts about nuts. Too nutty? I guess I have something in common with the squirrels!

Well, the relationship I have with nuts is a healthy one. Most nuts are good for you if taken in reasonable quantity. Almond, walnuts, pistachio and yes even peanuts are good. They are very healthy, they have essential oils and vitamins and they have lots of proteins too.

The trick is to take them in moderation. Because they are rich in oils, they pack a lot of calories. Macadamia nuts are the most calorie-dense amongst all. I like to snack on nuts because they have fewer carbs and are more satisfying. When choosing the types of nuts to buy, too for lightly salted and dry roasted variety.

So here is my nutty post.

I hope it was informative too.

All dressed up and nowhere to go, was the first thought that came to my mind when I saw the prompt. When I was younger, I loved to dress up when going out even when it wasn’t a special occasion. I even made some of my own dresses, much to the admiration of my friends. I was good with a sewing machine and a needle. I could whip up a new dress in a few hours provided I had the material to work with. But now I seldom bother dressing up unless the occasion calls for a formal dress. I guess it’s a mixture of age, laziness and a decreased desire to impress people. My husband of thirty-four years seldom notices what I am wearing, though he is always ready to bestow a compliment on my appearance. But getting back to dressing up, I wonder why I make special effort when I am going with my girlfriends or female members of my family. I think the reason is the women notice what each of us are wearing and often compliment each other. To be honest, by now I should have gone past the desire to get praise for my appearance and dress, but maybe it’s my inner teenager still hungry for admiration.

Oh my! This a bit of a conundrum!

Well first of all aloha to you all. I am going to cram as many words with oh in here as I can.

John couldn’t be excused for snatching Winnie the pooh from his sister’s hands as she was very possessive over it. There were boohoos after this incident but with cohesive strategy their mom handled it, sending John to his room and prohibiting him from playing with his younger sister’s toys. Putting on a mohair sweater, she lined her eyes with kohl and saw that she wore a bohemian air. She planned to join her friends for a shot of alcohol to ease the stress of the day but as she was ready to step out of the house, the phone rang. She answered it. “Hello, who is it? Oh………

Excuse this nonsense, as it’s all for the sake of oh!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday 12 October- Grounded

Linda G Hill is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Hi! It’s Friday, and time for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.

Here’s your prompt for this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ground.” Use it as a noun or a verb in any tense (i.e. grind). Have fun!

SoCS badge by Pamela, at https://achronicalofhope.com/

You know what keeps me grounded? A pot of freshly brewed coffee made with beans that are grounded every morning before I brew my pot. If I don’t get this dose of caffeine first up in the morning, the day cannot start. Well the day does starts but not for me….. at least not the way I like to start my day, specially if it is a weekday.

There are other things that keep me balanced and grounded. Like following my routine and finishing my chore in the order I think they should be. Some people might think that I am getting to be a bit OCD but I beg to differ. I am very OCD in certain aspects of my life. But I attribute this to growing up ( old). I think we become fixed in our ideas of how life should go as we grow ( up/ old). There is nothing wrong with it. It is the privilege of age!

That’s my view on it and I am standing firm on my ground!

I love the fantastic taste of home made chocolate cupcakes. It is so heavenly. And aside from the taste the aroma make the whole house smell wonderful. And unless you have a catastrophe in the kitchen, it would be a tasteful treat for the family and friends to feast upon.

All this writing about chocolate cupcakes has made me hungry, but alas I am off sugar and carbs. So the only thing I can do is visualize others enjoying this treat!

A visual treat for you all too!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday- Ain’t it an entire

It’s Friday! Time for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. Linda is attending a Writers’ Festival in Kingston (Ontario), but the prompt must go on. This is Dan from No Facilities, filling in for Linda. Contrary to my usual style, let’s cut the chit-chat and get down to business. Here’s your SoCS prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ent” “ten” “net.” Use one, use two or use all three (bonus points for using two, double-bonus points for using all three). As Linda would say, use ’em any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Often we spend hours on the internet looking for entertaining new, video and clips. I remember the Ents in “Lord of the rings”, the kindly and majestic tree beings who saved the hobbits and carried them in their branches to safety. Another ENT is the very familiar ear, nose and throat surgeon or the Otorhinolaryngologist! Quite a mouthful. I would rather use ENT instead. But this is just a by the way reference. What I really want to talk about is the very indispensable tool for us, the net.

Where would we be nowadays without it. Most of the information we now spout comes from googling. My youngest daughter, a new mom knows more about mothering than me, a mom of 33 years standing. All because the information available to her on the net. I also check all my facts before writing on the net! Any new thing you are told, you immediately google to check if it is really so. No waking ten minutes pass without me hitting the search button on google.

That is a plus side of modern technology that we should always be grateful for.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday-September 21-2019- Wrap

When we see the situation around us, we all feel the need to express our feelings.

I know you have a lot to say. Angry words are keen to burst out of your lips. There is a lot of emotional lava boiling in your heart which needs to spew out of your lips. But if you want someone to listen to you, better wrap it up in polite words. Politeness doesn’t cost a thing and a cooler mind can present the ideas and arguments in a more logical and persuadable way. Tact and diplomacy are the way forward if you want your words to carry some weight.

It does no good to give a rap on the knuckles. Better still to express your grievances in manner more acceptable to the one who can redress your complaints.

Take a deep breath and calm the mind.
