Ram 🐏 bling 💍 ~ 6/25/22

My sleuth

Lulu and I had a really nice walk this morning. Instead of river level, we walked street level. I reminisced about the years I worked downtown. Surprisingly I remembered all the shortcuts. We made good time and hit 5 miles @ 8:30 🕣.

Afterwards we made a quick stop at Target 🎯 so Lulu could grab a few things for her upcoming coast trip. As I walked more laps because I’m competitive with myself that way, I saw a journal 📓 and wouldn’t you know it, the cover says “Grin and Bear 🐻 It”. Hey that’s my theme which means despite not needing a journal, I bought this one anyway. I’m going to use it to aggregate some things, keeping to a single related topic.

I’m like a kid in a candy 🍬 store 🏬 who needs a nap 😴 😂. I’m sleeping somewhat better. Thankfully 😅. But getting up at the b’crack of dawn has its after effects.

Wishing you a sensational Saturday.

As always more to come.


#SoCS ~ 6/25/22

Hello 👋 Folks! Coming at you live from my iPhone 📱. The last Saturday of June snuck right up ⬆️ on me. I agree ☝️ with Linda; how did we get to the last week of June already? And what day is it anyway? I didn’t think 🤔 I’d be able to write ✍️ today. Or least not without railing against the machine.

But I’ve opted to keep my opinions to myself. Not that I don’t care 🤷‍♀️ but it’s exhausting to try to convince others to change their way of thinking to my own. I need to divert my energy to what I can control. Of course it’s stream which is usually outta control. But I CAN moderate my response to the prompt which follows.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “product/produce.” Use one, use them both, use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

Ooh 😮 bonus points on the line. What product can I create to earn that carrot 🥕? One down and one to go.

Hot 🥵. Muy caliente! When you live in Texas with many (I’ve lost count) days of consecutive temps over 100, your turn to water 💧 the garden 🪴 whose produce is barely 😰 hanging on results in memories of summers past. Ya see the hose was baking all day making that first blast 💥 of water scalding. Yep you almost burn 🔥 yourself. No exaggeration either. Damn!

How’s that about summers past? Well when you were a kid 👧 and you turned on the sprinkler or the water 💧 wiggle, you let the hose run 🏃‍♂️ for a while to cool 😎 down. Now I wanna run all around the yard getting soaked. I bet our dogs 🐶 🐶 would love 💕 it.

Please know that I’m not complaining. After Snowmageddon 2021, I swore I’d never whine about the heat again. Our A/C is a product that produces sweet relief 😮‍💨. We’re a set it to 78 and forget it bunch. Our energy provider loves us. Too high for some who swear by 72, but to us, we’ve got ceiling fans to compensate.

Alrighty. Landing the plane ✈️. Lulu and I are walking 🚶‍♂️ it off. We usually go river level but we’re going topside this time. Living on the edge.

HERE are the rules and ping back if you too would like to play along.

As always more to come.
