Thursday Thoughts ~ 1/12/23

I’ve been thinking. You say “duh Jilly, so what else is new?” Ha! Nothing! Absolutely nothing say it again. Do NOT start on me earworm, do not start on me … too late

Let’s move this stream thinking along.

Does your iPhone/iPad make videos for you? Like compilations & name them & set them to music too? Mine does. I didn’t set up this feature but I love it! As a plant lover, I have tons of stills of greenery that I’ve taken over the years. For a while, I belonged to the SA Botanical Gardens. I let my membership lapse but I still visit often. Then every Riverwalk stroll, any special arrangements for the Dub girls, & so on … I collect floral images. When I got this video, I changed the music & texted it trying to spread the beauty. I don’t think my recipients cared as much. Well one did, 25% not like I’m counting. Which moves me to my next thought.

Here’s where I need your input people of bloglandia. If you text someone & they don’t reply, does it mean anything? Like does it mean they hate you? Or something less extreme? You may say “it depends Jilly, on who or what you send”.

My better 1/2 says he has a condition where he must respond to all texts & he must be the last response. He has so many ‘Ok’ texts it’s silly. My sonshine on the other hand says he never responds to texts. He may read them but he’s a talk on the phone person. He’s only 34, older millennial but still millennial which means we can’t stereotype. Well we can but we shouldn’t. Lulu is somewhere in between with the every text does not require a reply philosophy. Just like every email doesn’t need an answer in worklandia. Except for the occasional ‘bite me’ email … Haha.

I guess what I’m wondering is if you got a pretty 1-2 minute video of flowers, set to beautiful carefully chosen music from me, would you text me back? There are no wrong answers, unless of course you hate me. I always jump to that conclusion. But as I learned yesterday, someone’s life is a huge circle & what we know about it is only a dot. Why we should be kind. A thumbs up is kind in case anyone was wondering.

As always, more to come.


Linda hosts and Liz supplies the word. Your prompt for JusJoJan January 12th 2023, is “donut.” Use the word “donut” any way you’d like. Have fun! Visit Liz Husebye Hartmann’s blog to read her post and say hello. HERE are the rules & ping back.

At home versus store bought, with proper equipment I think I could make some pretty doughnuts/donuts myself. I do love to bake. And even if they weren’t pretty as long as they tasted okay, I’m good.

As always, more to come.
