#socs feeling grounded

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!

As I sit
I feel grounded
My surroundings
Feel nice
Warm, safe
I feel loved
By my mom
My dog
My friends
I am comforted
Feels so good to feel secure
A warm hot soak
In a bath
Of bubbles
A hot cup of tea
Comforting words
A warm embrace
All things that
Ground me to the present
And that my friends
Is amazing!


#Socs: The taste of coffee!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is -tast-. Find a word that contains tast and use it in your post. Enjoy!


I’m wide awake at 3 AM. I didnt sleep well. Probably because I had a nap in the afternoon yesterday. Well I was not doing anything else, and I hadnt slept well the night before either. So a nap it was.

I got 3 hours of sleep in the afternoon yesterday, and tonight I went to bed at around 10:30 and slept until just after 2 AM.

I doubt I’ll sleep any more now. So what did I go do? I went to my trusted coffee. I made a brew. A cup of smooth coffee. Yum! It tastes delicious! I love how this particular coffee tastes! Its expensive, a jar of it cost me 10 euro but its worth it.

Its pouring down outside. Its so sootheing to listen to the rain. I love it.

I have therapy in a few hours. We’re looking forward to going. We have to tell her we booked our trip to colorado to see Sarah. And we also have to talk about other stuff, allie is going to have some time, as will liz.

Then I am working this afternoon on friendly call. My supervisor is off today so I hope there arent any problems. If there are I suppose I could ring her or just wait until she’s back in the office tomorrow because I work tomorrow also. I wont be on my own so if anything does come up I’m sure I can ask someone else’s opinion about what to do.

Well off to drink this coffee! ❤

Old Socs prompt: Weight loss update

This is a SoCs prompt from a few weeks ago, but I thought I’d do it anyhow, give a bit of an update on my weight loss!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is weigh/way/whey. Use one, use em all, bonus points if you do that last thing. Enjoy!

I’m doing good with my food plan this week! I havent gone over my syns at all! I do keep obsessing about the numbers though, and I know I shouldnt. I did weigh myself a few times on my own scales, but really I need to just stick to the scales at slimming world.

I’ve been eating slimming world meals a lot, they taste ok, I’ve tried lasagna, shephards pie, charisso chicken, sausage and bean casserole, and mexican rice.

I’ve also been eating tons of fruit. I do drink coke zero, but thats allowed on the plan. I bought myself a few boxes of slimming world bars, they are called Hi-fi bars. I got the mint ones, and the black forrest gatteau ones.

I am going to treat myself tonight to two slices of banana bread with a cup of tea. Each slice is worth 2.5 syns. I am allowed 15 syns per day, and I havent had any today so far. So banana bread it is.

I’m hopeful for another great week, and for a loss at weigh in next Tuesday, we shall see. Only time will tell I suppose.

#Socs Wrapped up!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is wrap/rap. Use one, use both (for bonus points), use em any way youd like. Enjoy!

I am sitting here on my bed, wrapped up in a fleece blanket. We were having gorgeous weather this past week, but now our sunshine is gone, and it has turned cold! Brrr!
I love my fleece blanket. I was thinking the other day that I need to buy one for my bed. Winter is coming, and I love being snug and warm in my bed, I do have a quilt on the bed, but there’s something about fleece blankets. Something magical.
I have some small ones, that I use when I am on the couch reading, one of them has horses on it, I got it when I visited america a few years ago. Its a pretty good size.
Wrapping up in my blanket is my self care act for today! I am feeling a little sad, so doing this is making me feel a whole lot better.

#Socs, on the couch!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is couch Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

I am sitting here on my bed at my parents house. I will move out to the living room soon though. And go sit on the couch to read. I keep saying I will do it and then I keep getting distracted.
I want to start the new maggie hartley book, please dont take my sisters. I have it on my to be read list almost two weeks now, and I havent made a start on it yet. Once I do though I’ll wiz through it I’m sure.
Its sunday, and that means its a lazy day. I dont have things I need to do, so its a good day to read. So I should get started soon on my book!
I can be a couch potato for the day, curl up with a nice hot cup of coffee, and enjoy doing absolutely nothing!
How about you? Do you enjoy doing nothing, is sunday a day where you can do that?

#Socs, weather talk

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “preposition” Start your post with any preposition. Bonus points if you end with one too. Enjoy!

The weather this weekend was really good. I was delighted, as for the last few weekends it has been awful. The forecast this past weekend was for hot weather in parts of Ireland. We had dry weather in Killarney, not hot, it wasn’t sunny, but it was dry and it didn’t rain. I’ll take that. Any time it doesn’t rain when I am out walking is a good thing. We were able to go to Killarney national park on Sunday and walk around and even go on a boat trip. I didn’t even have to take a jacket with me this weekend. I don’t wear jackets a lot anyway, but usually I would take one with me when I go away from home. I decided not to though this weekend. I am glad I didn’t. It would have been extra luggage and an extra thing to carry. Today Monday, the weather is beautiful and sunny. It means more bees and more wasps though. That’s the downside to it. Of course I am terrified of them. Yesterday while driving a bee came into the car. I almost lost my shit. I freaked out. Luckily my sister got him out again. Thank god!
