Day 128 – LSS Attitude of Gratitude – # SoCS – There is always something to be grateful for.


SoCSStream of Consciousness Saturday (#SoCS) offered by Linda G. Hill. If you are interested, the rules and a link will be listed below the post.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ends with -ly.” Start your post with any adverb that ends in “-ly.” Bonus points if you end with an adverb too. Have fun!




Joyfully I awake in the morning because I have been gifted another day in this realm.

Routinely I do my morning activities making sure that I don’t skip anything.

Quickly I get ready for school and try to find all my necessities to begin my day.

Cautiously I drive to work making sure I am safe.

Curiously I look to see if the bunnies have returned to the proper side of the street for their safety.

Peacefully I begin my day with nary another person on site or in sight.

Ceremoniously I prepare my classroom and myself for the day.

Regularly I go to the office to check for information.

Customarily I reply to those that need a response.

Happily my day begins and my students enter the class.

Normally we listen to the school televised program to get the latest scoop on what is happening that day.

Typically I teach my five periods of science and have one prep period to work on whatever needs doing.

Frequently I need to again contact a parent or another teacher.

Ordinarily I leave right after school for one appointment or another.

Occasionally I stay late and correct until 6 or 7 at night.

Generally I make dinner, have the tube on, correct papers, read emails, play with the dog, go on Fakebook, read some fun things, and write in my journal.

Consistently I take a very long evening drenching of one type or another.

Reluctantly I take my evening meds so that I can get some sleep.

Unfortunately I rarely sleep without help.

I try to end my day as I began, joyfully.

Follow Linda G. Hill’s blog to write along every Saturday.

Here are the rules for SoCS:

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. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a 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 simply a single word to get your 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 their post. Even better, read everyone’s! 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 right 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!
