Here are your questions for this week:

  1.  Do you find it relatively easy to fall asleep at night? Yes, I usually fall asleep as soon as the lights are out, unless I am in a terrible state of anxiety.
  2.  Do you remember your dreams? Most of the time I do. There are a lot of times I will remember it days later. I wish I would write down my dreams the minute I wake up and recall them because within two minutes they vanish
  3.  If you can’t sleep, do you watch TV, read or listen to music in the hope you will nod off? I usually play a game on my phone until I fall back asleep
  4.  Can you literally sleep anywhere (chair, sofa, bus, train, flight, etc)? Yup! Desk at school, beach, nail salon, during a haircut…Anywhere I can sit and not have to do something physically active.

Gratitude: I’m thankful that I have more food in my house than I know what to do with it. I see these commercial for kids who are starving and think , how does that happen?

Amazon Mystery Box

Has anyone ever bought one of these? Sounds fun but…

Nearly $300 billion in products are returned to Amazon every year. You won’t believe how they are handled…

It’s the best time of year to shop $29.99 Amazon Electronic Pallets only sell 2 weeks out of the year, if you miss out, you’ll have to wait another year

I want to buy one just for the surprise factor but then what? I guess you can try to resell it and make money. Ugh, sounds like a lot of hassle.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

One of the Boys (Simply 6 Minutes)

Jez writes words that so many would love to say

Jezzie G

Inspired by and written for Simply 6 Minutes – thank you, Christine

One of the Boys
Form: Cornish Sonnet 1

I never was a girl for the Barbie pink
Just another thing that didn’t feel right
Back then the shades of pink made my heart sink
Without understanding the reasons why
A colour can bring the heart to such plight
With only confusion my tears to cry

All I ever wanted was shades of blue
To echo feelings that lived inside me
Even then it was something I just knew
I didn’t want dolls or the other girl toys
All of that just was not how it should be
When I should have been just one of the boys

I never was a girl for the Barbie pink
All I ever wanted was shades of blue

Time: 8 minutes, 20 seconds

A Horse in Armor: Compilation 01/19/2023

Armor for Man and Horse, Steel, leather, copper alloy, textile, Italian, Milan and Brescia
https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/35772

My actions seemed quite outrageous
I suppose you’d call them daft
to see my equine partner
bard in a coat and hat
The suit was made of armor
A fetish I admit
To see a horse so handsome
Disposable’d never fit
I swallowed any angst now
to point out my big guy
No cheater could they call me
Only authentic did I buy
He was the utmost handsome
I really must admit
But how can I clean real armor
when it’s full of horse’s shit?

Simply Six Minutes: Before And After

John explains repurposing

The Sound of One Hand Typing

I just read Jim’s paragraph about the above-pictured piece of furniture, where he said it’s hideous and should be put on the curb. Now, if he read the Apartment Therapy website, he would know that someone else will see this and say, “Why in the world would anyone throw this away?”

That person will put it in her trunk, bring it home to her garage, and put it on some old newspapers. Then, she’ll go out to Home Depot for two twelve-ounce cans of Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch 2X Flat Black General Purpose Spray Paint at $6.48 each, a package of ten Glide-Rite 5 in. Center-to-Center Polished Chrome Finish Solid Handle Bar Pulls (I’m estimating the width between the holes on the center drawers) for $25.74, six Hickory Hardware Forge 1-3/8 in. Dia Chrome Cabinet Knobs at $4.79 each ($28.74 total), and, in case there are any spare holes, a six-ounce…

Dressing it up

Di’s story catches you off-guard

pensitivity101

The guys were good at their job, but sometimes something would hit them hard which made things difficult.
Such was The Dresser.
It looked like any other dresser you’d find in a teenager’s bedroom, makeup, tissues, photos, everything all in disarray, but an order of sorts for the owner.
OK, it had knobs missing but with a bit of TLC, it could be restored and worthy of another’s possessions and signs of living.
That was it. Signs of living.

Drawer

Shashi gives the warning so many parents have given themselves!

Shashi's Verse

These lines are written in response to a prompt on https://christinebialczak.com/2023/01/17/simply-6-minutes-welcome-to-the-challenge-01-17-2023/

The prompt was to write about the image shown below.

Drawers

With food and toys

Warmth and care

World out there

Looks a fun filled place

Don’t pull out the drawers

And fall far the bait

There are monsters hiding in

Winter’s Depth: Compilation 01/17/2023

Limbs pruned from the large, green pine
severed from the roots
cut so deeply
As if a door has shut out all light
and an immanent cold settles
All spatial reasoning gone
rationed by the falling snow
Any breath is a deviation
from the warmth
and beauty
of spring’s sweet air
and peaceful breeze
