SoCS –

Many thanks to  Linda for bringing us SoCS.  Her directions are: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a word you have to look up.” We all have words we can never spell. Use one of yours in your post and let that word drive your stream of consciousness where ever it goes. Have fun!

 

I am not a wonderful speller. There are a multitude of words that I am sure I know how to spell and there is that unwelcome squiggly red line shouting at me. OK, squiggly was the first red line on this post, so I am going with that.

It seems that I often wonder if words end with ly or ley. What is the grammar rule for doubling consonants at the end of a word to add s suffix?  I don’t remember. 

I remember when two vowels go a walking, the first one does the talking and says its own name. I remember i before e, except after c or when sounded as a as in neighbor and weigh. Every syllable has to have one vowel.  Words do not end in v or j, you add a silent e. That’s all I remember right now. 

Back to squiggly . Ha ha, I spelled it wrong again. Squiggly lines are never a good thing when you are sewing  or painting. I had to use my seam ripper to undo a seam I made in an accent pillow. I did not make a squiggly line, I sewed the right side to the wrong side . It was late and I knew I needed to stop sewing when I made such a foolish error. 

Squiggly lines when painting two walls different colors is another no no. I have been known to do wall A, then B, then A again where it needs a touch up. etc. Not fun, but I sure like the addition of an accent wall in a room. 

I can’t think of any more squiggly things for now.

  1. Squiggles can be fun, so this was a fun post. I like painting in all forms, except when it comes to ceilings. I always have to touch up the edge between the wall and the ceiling. But I’m getting too old for ceilings.
