Here are the rules:
1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a particular subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The,’” or will simply be a single word to get you started.
4. Ping back! It’s important so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post, you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.
5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back to their post. Even better, read all of them! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find below the “Like” button on my post.
6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!
7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.
8. Have fun!
I woke to the beautiful sound of birds chirping. As I opened my bedroom window what do I see but a black, gray and white cat getting into the bin. I went to the back door to go outside and out went the cat. As soon as it heard the back door open it looked up, turned around and sped away. It was as quick as a cheetah, so fast that all I saw as it scaled the back wall was a mixture of black, gray and white streaks blended together.
Lol, we really do have a sneaky cat that comes and dig in our bin. It’s a black and white fluffy cat. It takes off every time my partner goes outside to see what is digging in our bin.
It’s been a while since I told a little story. Until next week.

What went well this week?
- I am getting the vacation that I’ve been craving for the past few weeks. Though it’s not in the way I imagined it. As you may know by now, if read my post: My Experience Getting Tested for Covid 19 I am at home under quarantine as I await my test results. So far it has been a very restful week. I’ve slept a lot, even napped during the day, which is unusual for me. I guess my body really needed the rest. I’m making sure to get in some movement each day in order to take care of myself during this quarantine time. My daily rountine of course has gone out the window. But I am still doing my morning routine, it just starts at different times each day. I think I’ve found a nice balance of activities to start the day right.
- I’ve been reading a lot more blog posts and engaging on Twitter. The blogging/ writing community there is great.
What could have gone better?
- I wish this annoying cough would go away but I can’t complain too much because It’s not that bad.
- I have to remind myself that it is okay to not be super productive while on quarantine. It’s okay to chill and watch YouTube videos and anime.
What’s happening next week.
- I have no outdoor plans next week of course because I’ll still be in quarantine.
- However I will be catching up my emails, there are so many to sort through, reading out Middlesex and writing.
- I want to create a gift guide post next week as well. Going through product reviews is tedious and frustrating though.

What I’d like to get done:
- Create a loose routine that includes time for plenty of rest, self-care and productivity.
- Read out Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
- A friend of mine recommended this book, The Midnight Library by Matt Haig so I want to read that as well. I’m thinking for the month of December I’ll read mostly fiction books. Leave your recommendations in the comments.
- Start Read to Lead by Jefff Brown and Jesse Wisnewski
Things I’ve been thinking about:
- Since I’ve been home this week, I’m getting into the stay at home mood. It would be awesom if an opportunity arises where I can work from home instead.
Question: What are your favourite holiday reads?
That’s it for today, everyone.
