Daily Prompt: Giving Thanks For What I Have


Daily Prompt: Keeping up with the Jones’

Tell us about the one luxury item you wish you could afford, in as much detail as you can.
Paint a picture for us.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us COVET.

IMG_0002

 

I am really happy with what we have.
I can not think of anything that I would covet that someone else has.
We are semi healthy for our age.
We have two healthy dogs and a cat.
We are happily married now for almost 5 years.

We own our home (Have a mortgage but who doesn’t these days?)
We live in the country but are not far from the city.
We live in a wonderful neighborhood

We have a lot of comfort features in life.
(Dishwasher, Microwave, Washer, Dryer, Big Screen TV, Internet, Computers, WiFi, etc)
We work our businesses from our home and in our jammies most of the time.
We are blessed with healthy children and many grandchildren.
We have several wonderful kind friends.
We have heat, running water and food in fridge and freezer as well as the pantry.
We have clothes in our closet.

What would we want that we could add to that?  More Money?
Perhaps that would be nice.  Then we could pay off our Mortgage early.
The payments are made each month so we are happy.

I ask my readers, what would you want that you do not have?

Enlighten me please with a comment…

Be careful what you wish for…

Daily Prompt: Bartering, Old Fashioned, Or New Age?


Daily Prompt: Barter System

If the world worked on a barter system, how would you fare?
Would you have services to barter?
Would you be successful, or would you struggle?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SKILL.

The old saying is that you get farther with honey than vingegar.
If you have a bee hive then you have gold.

We have customers who trade us products for some pretty strange items and services.

I am currently in the market to barter for a dishwasher and a dryer…wish me luck.

Daily Prompt: Dear Telephone Solicitor


A word of advice to any poor soul who works as a telephone solicitor.
Speaking English is a plus.
Non English is tolerable if I can understand what you are trying to say. phone

http://www.easychoice.com/ tried to call three times today.
The background noise from other solicitors doing the same thing from other telephones was so bad that I could not hear the broken English of the person on the phone trying to reach me.  I realize that they are trying to make a living.  So am I.  I do not call everyone to try and make a sale.  My hubby gets up early in the morning and starts to advertise all over in free spots.  We do well with our businesses without annoying people with telephone calls.
creative thought1

I am suggesting this book to you so go to http://www.amazon.com and take a coffee break or a lunch break and read it.

cup of coffee

 

You might get some creative ideas on how to find a new way of making money without annoying people with caller id.

Then a local restaurant mysteriously found our business card in their fishbowl…two free tickets to dinner…too bad I recognized the voice as they are trying to sell a water system…

Have had two different businesses wanting to know if I want to place an order this month…

Hello world… hubby has to have surgery next month…we can’t buy anything till we know what our co-pay will be.

There now I feel better.

Guess my tag today is not a nice one.

Daily Prompt: Taking A Vacation


Daily Prompt: Tourist Trap

What’s your dream tourist destination — either a place you’ve been and loved, or a place you’d love to visit?

I don’t like big crowds so that really rules out a lot of places.  I love to take day trips.

Yes She’s a Yankee from New York and I’m a Rebel from Tennessee. 034 (4) 034 (2) world Emmylou Harris and me on stage at the Grand Ole Opry 005 010 (4) 016 002Nashville is great to take day trips and still not see everything


What about it speaks to you?

There is so much to see and so much history there and history in the making.  Nashville Tennessee is a great place to visit for us.

We can take in a concert or just see the street musicians and see the historical beauty.  Only being one hour from home.

The trip is inexpensive and fits well in our budget.  We do not break the bank to do it.  Every trip is different.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us VACATION.

Daily Prompt: Going List-Y


Daily Prompt: The Satisfaction of a List

Who doesn’t love a list? So write one! Top five slices of pizza in your town, ten reasons disco will never die, the three secrets to happiness — go silly or go deep, just go list-y.

lists

Why do we make lists?  What type of lists do we make?  Are they to keep us organized, help us to remember or just something to doodle when in a meeting?

I decided to explore the different types of lists that people make.  Here are my findings.

The Ever Famous Summer Bucket List…(Kids are out of school for break, have limited time to get it done in short time)

bucket list

 

Then I began to think about what do we use list for besides…

wine list on menu

 

Menus in Restaurants

top ten spices eating right listReading articles

schedule

Making Appointments

party guest list

Having a party or wedding

notebook lists

Taking notes or inventory

cleaning list

Cleaning Lists

wish

Hmmm

store joke

grocery

We make this so we do not impulse shop

do it

Ah the Honey Do List…

list

Now it is time for me to make my list like the prompt said…

I need to decide which list to start with first…
Perhaps I need a list for my lists
Should they all be neatly lined on the fridge?
Do I line them up by importance?
What deems the list more important?
My fridge has a Honey Do and Grocery…
Both are forgotten by hubby…
If I could eat in a corn free restaurant, I would love a menu
I don’t drink, so I do not need a wine list.
I am a little old to start a bucket list
Today is day off from A-Z Challenge
Tomorrow I do the Letter M
That really is a list of sorts, yet broken down by day
It does not feel like a list that is in a list.
I guess you could easily say that my lists have lists.

Daily Prompt: Organizations I Chose To Be Beneficiaries


Daily Prompt: Charitable

You’ve inherited $5 million, with instructions that you must give it all away — but you can choose any organizations you like to be the beneficiaries. Where does the money go?

th

Wow with that amount of money it was a tough question.

1. Mike Fest 2013  (Would set it up so each year a recipient would receive a set amount).  This year is Wounded Warrior Sgt. Keith Hale.

https://layedbacklife.wordpress.com/2013/04/09/daily-prompt-mikefest-history-and-today/

2. Paws with a Cause Local Chapter Max’s Hope

https://layedbacklife.wordpress.com/2013/03/09/give-a-shout-out-to-our-local-organization/

The other charities I would have to think about for a bit and ponder.  My reason for this is that I have a problem with Administrative fees.  With these two that I have chosen, the money goes directly to the cause at hand for what is intended.  

Perhaps if I just split between the two that would be enough to keep MikeFest and Max’s Hope going for years to come.

Daily Prompt B+: What I did last Weekend?


Daily Prompt: B+

by michelle w. on February 23, 2013

Write about what you did last weekend as though you’re a music critic reviewing a new album.

Prelude:  Has a woman sitting at her desk asking herself what she really did last weekend.  It was only one week ago.

Track One:

Hubby goes to grocery store on post and has a panic attack before he finishes grocery list and hurries home with ribs (not on list) and half of the grocery list.  Not a great track here.  No happy dancing here.

Track Two:

Wife slowly puts away few groceries and finishes cleaning the house..Not an exciting track here at all.

Track Three:

Time to feed the animals again.  They eat three times a day in small portions. This track is a bit better.  At least a little better dancing.

Track Four:

Time to blog of course since Daily Prompt never takes a break.  This is definitely a better dance track while working.

Track Five:

This track is all about getting in a shipment from Tupperware and Scentsy that I had to inventory and stamp catalogs.  Not very exciting but very necessary since we were out of catalogs and only had Canadian Catalogs no USA ones. This track had a bonus track with it.

Track Six:

This is where Tammye Honey decided that she was hungry and made dinner.  A simple track but easy to follow.

Track Seven:

Short track of time to do the dishes.  Only wish I had a dishwasher.

Track Eight:

Time to relax and watch some tv while crocheting a light evening of quiet time snuggled in the bed with two dogs and a cat.

Hope this leaves you in a relaxed mode to be able to continue and read what other Daily Prompt Writers had to say on this subject:

Daily Prompt: What would I reinvent?


Daily Prompt: Undo

by michelle w. on February 21, 2013

If you could un-invent something, what would it be? Discuss why, potential repercussions, or a possible alternative.

Foods and medications with corn syrup additives , corn starch or modified food starch.  I would use the corn to produce gasoline.  The alternatives to corn in foods would be rice or potato starch or syrup.  There would be fewer allergies in the world and gasoline would be cheaper to make and purchase.

Can't wait to try

Can’t wait to try

Nice option to baking

Nice option to baking

Potential repercussions the nations who produce the petroleum that we are purchasing from would hate us more than they do already.

cars

By relying on our own corn for fuel, we might get out of debt.  What would our Government have to fight over.  Oh I forgot, there is still the medical issues and the gun control of the thieves who steal guns then commit crimes.  That alone should be enough to keep them busy after they finish fighting over the minimum wage hike.

pouring rain

 

Will the trickle down theory affect our prices of production of goods and the shipping of the goods to stores?  Will the increase in that minimum wage be eaten away by the increases seen in the cost of living?

ups truck

 

Perhaps if we went back to the barter system for a lot of things that we need in life things would become easier and more cost effective.

Food for thought.  What are your thoughts on this?  What would you reinvent?

Daily Prompt: Something I know I should do yet will not


Daily Prompt: Shoulda Woulda Coulda

by michelle w. on February 13, 2013

Tell us about something you know you should do . . . but don’t.

My Kitchen needs a really bad make over.  The cabinets are solid wood so I would like to reuse them in the make over.  With all of the rain we have had and are having, it would be impossible to take them down and redo them outside.  I do not want the mess in the house to redo them in here.  Especially since right now I can’t open windows for ventilation.

To redo the position of the kitchen to give me more counter space would change the new flooring that we put in around the existing pattern.

Instead of painting

Instead of painting

Lack of funding is my other issue.  After the tornado and storm damage, we have the roof fixed and the apple tree removed.  That is all of the repairs we have been able to do so far.

This project is on a back burner for a while and I am doing what I can with what I have.

What is going on with your life that you should be doing and will wait or will not be doing?

Would love to hear.
