SoCs & #JusJoJan

When it comes to, “killing two birds w/one stone” you can count it on my participation. That was a very lame use of that phrase, but I think in can work. Sorry Mz. Linda, I tried 😉 …

Back to SoCS…Had a great Saturday, Mani/Pedi and a 9 hour house wake-up. How do you erase your stream of consciousness??? I did though. Husband is still working on Mr. Paul Newman and it’s looking good. I’ll feature maybe on Monday’s Masterpiece. I guess I could sneak a peak at his progress on the painting…This picture was streaming through my consciousness 😉 …

Had leftover Spaghetti & Meatloaf again. It is very delicious to use leftover meatloaf in your new spaghetti sauce. Very tasty and I made some Gooey Sugar Cookie Bar for dessert. House is cleaned and life is just moving along, no complaints from this lady.

I’m just glad I got this up for today…See y’all tomorrow for Song Lyric Sunday. Hope everything is good in your corner of the world. It’s movie night at # thename and if you know what that is then good for you <3 . Blessings Blogger’s for a quiet Saturday evening…

Day is done…I must get out of the January Dumps. So here I am for the January Challenge. The prompt today is, “Phantom”. When I hear that word, I think of “Phantom of the Opera” yes the musical. This is from my old day’s of when I wore the hat of Musical Theatre Mom. It was a fun time of life for me and yes I do miss it. Also a great musical for sure, one of my fav’s. Happy Friday and let’s hope we don’t get a snow storm next week. I mean we’ve come this far with nary a flake of snow, so know you don’t get to make up for lost time next week. Snow go away.

The devil whispered into my ear today, “You cannot withstand the storm.” I looked back at the devil and whispered into his ear today, “I am the S T O R M.”

#SoCS and #JusJoJan

A short story from my stream of consciousness 😉 Enjoy and I ended up with something for #JusJoJan Blessings <3 Mz. Janet <3

I knew the end was coming, but I had hoped. I really didn’t know what I had hoped for. Rosalee, our dog, heard him coming before me. She woke out of a deep sleep in front of the fireplace and was completely alert and barking at the door.

Maybe I had hoped it wouldn’t ever happen. So much time had passed. So many years had been lost. I looked older, and although the getting older had been kind you always want to seem like aging was agreeing with you.

As I was walking toward the door, I thought should I open it or just pretend I wasn’t there. Or he could think maybe I was sleeping and didn’t hear the bell. I wanted to do anything to avoid this moment. I was lost in my memories and thought, “Should I just get it over with so I can finally move on, put an Amen to it ??” The bell rang again and I was jolted back to this moment certain he knew I was standing right on the other side of the door. Just open the door and smile. Act surprised , be civil. The way I see it if it does not feel right you have an appointment that you can’t get out of. Make it a short conversation and say, “Can we do this another time, I have an appointment that I can’t get out of. We’ll do lunch. We can talk and catch up. Call me.” Or something to that effect. If it seems comfortable, invite him in for coffee. Keep the conversation light, away from the past. Definitely away from that horrible day that’s for sure.

I opened the door and there he was. Standing there with that same sparkle in his eye’s and that smile. Oh that smile, that made my heart melt. The smile that I fell in love with. Yes I remembered that smile. His suit was perfect, the color’s were a total match. The tie, his shirt, the scarf in his pocket, perfect. Then I looked down, OMG even his shoes and socks, EVERYTHING was perfect and there I stood in my sweats. My hair was tied up with the scrunchy on top of my head, and then I felt it, there it was. That same feeling I always had, that we were never meant to be but we were.

I wanted us to work, but for some reason we never did. “Can we do this another time, I have an appointment that I can’t get out of. We’ll do lunch. We can talk and catch up. Call Me.” It sounded like the beginning…
