SoCS: Fridge

The last thing I put in my fridge was Coffee Mate. Yes, I know its not the healthiest but it sure it the best tasting! It makes your coffee taste like Tim Horton’s coffee.

I only drink 2 cups of coffee first in the morning so I’m not worried about the unhealthy effects of 2 dribbles of Coffee Mate. Its creamy but lasts for weeks and it has sweetener so I don’t have to buy sugar.

I used to use honey and half and half. The half and half never lasted and the honey added a distinct flavour. However, I used to have an unlimited supply of honey which I don’t have now.

I used to be married to a beekeeper. We had over 100 hives at one point and did two farmers markets. I had a side business making hand cream, lip balm and candles with beeswax. I would be so busy this time of year getting stuff make for Christmas when I made some good money.

I put in 25 years helping in every part of the beekeeping and the business. I made signs and decorated our market booths. Collected bee parafenlia parenfanalia where’s the damn spell check? I can’t be bothered to look it up.

Most of the morning is over and it hasn’t been pleasant. I have a stray cat drama here. Its wild, skinny, scared and no one can get near it. My neighbour is working on feeding it and I hope they are going to take it somewhere and not set it up in my shed for the winter with the door cracked open.

So I sure don’t feel like writing about how I lost my home, mate and business all in one day.

I’ve got a fire going in my woodstove and I’m going to watch TV today. No one has to tell me to isolate; I go willingly.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 21/2020 | (

SoCS: ring

‘It rings true’. Truth rings. You can feel when something is true; it rings inside you. When something is a falsehood it has that buzzer; blleeymp! wrong answer.

I like the truth; it rings all over here. Ringing church bell, loud and clear like it or not.

Lately I’ve had a lot of ‘blleeymp!’ bullshit thrown at me. I’m not going to get into it. Its the regular kind of bullshit people live with everyday.

I want Truth to ring everywhere.

Biden won.

You have to wear a mask.

We all are who we are and can’t help being who we are.

Here in Canada we are being told to “Stay Home!” Hell, you don’t have to tell me! There’s nothing more I want to than to stay home and ring my bell.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ring.” Use it as a noun, a verb, an adverb, or an adjective…use it any way you’d like.
