Linda is our hostess for SoCS. Saturday was a joyous day for me. My daughter and the 3 Zs came over to celebrate Z2‘s birthday. Her prompt fit right in with my day.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ring.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Bonus points if you use it as both. Have fun!
Z2 drove up to the house on Saturday. My daughter texted that they had arrived because they know my Ring doesn’t work. First the voice part quit working and it sounded like the person talking was under water. Then the doorbell part quit working. The Ring was a few hundred dollars when I bought it five years ago. I don’t know the expected lifespan of the device, but it definitely is out of it’s warranty period.
This was the first time my daughter didn’t have to drive to my house. Her daughter, Z2 , happily took the wheel. We went out to lunch and then came back to my house for brownies and ice cream. I made dark chocolate brownies and gluten free brownies. I didn’t add walnuts because the birthday girl doesn’t like them.
It was a terrific day. Seeing the teenagers act like kids playing in my backyard, made my heart happy. I even talked them into posing for a picture. I wanted to copy one that I had taken years earlier.
I was in a great deal of pain all day, but the joy I felt spending time with my family made it worthwhile. When they left, I crashed and took some CBD.
