Coffee Chat Q&A – Dec. 3, 2022

drive-thru, ‘like’ and not read?

like a drive-thru fast foodie and not ordering

tsk tsk

“It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.”
― Oscar Wilde

a gift chosen with care

perhaps not to your liking

careful if you repurpose

results could be biting

cooking made easier these days

as some may say

for some Lazy Susan’s, tis not their cup of tea

perhaps not a culinary goddess but a basic cook is me

news WAS news, now too much fake

more than I can take

thus far, the 2020’s can take a hike

exceptions are those where we think alike

or agree to respectfully disagree

swallowing – oh, the list is long

anything yukky, icky, and doesn’t belong

sleepy time eight to nine in the PM – lullaby, and goodnight

keeps this old girl spunky and bright

pristine!? maybe in my dreams

between hubby and kitty can be a chore

yet, Ima stickler to keep my house clean

a phone that’s smart, can it cook and clean?

no addiction, I’m no fool, consider it a useful tool

TV meh unless singing, dancing, quality acting

“some soap opera, you know, real people pretending to be fake people with made-up problems being watched by real people to forget their real problems.” ― Chuck Palahniu

life is what you make it – thorny or otherwise

“I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things that aren’t meant for me.— Unknown

toasted waffles or toasted bread? no preference

“For as long as there’s anyone to ask ‘Why?’ the answer will always be, ‘Why not?” ― Vera Nazarian

ageing process and me – what’s meant to be will be

rebellious, me? I plead the fifth

Ah, theatre, the theatre

“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” ― Oscar Wilde

nope, nix, no way, nothing doing, uh uh, not, nay, are you nuts?

“Joy is the kind of happiness that does not depend on what happens.” David Steindl-Rast


Earthly Comforts Question Time Over Coffee

01Do you sometimes ‘just’ LIKE posts from those you follow but don’t often read the content, and if so, why do you do this?

Is it a time restraint or something else that motivates this action?
02What do you do with gifts you have received but have no use for?

Inspired by Sadje
03Have people become lazier concerning cooking do you think, or is it more a case of people not knowing how to cook?

Is cooking considered a valuable skill by you?
04What news stories, in your opinion, have so far defined the 2020’s and what do you think they have taught us personally as individuals?
05What would you never swallow even if you could?
06How many hours of sleep do you get a night, and how many hours do you think you need and why?
07How important is it to you to have a clean house or environment to live in and does it have to be pristine?
08Could you give up your Smartphone and break your addiction to it?
09What have been five of your best TV shows from the dawn of dot to today?

Why were they good?
10Why is life not a bed of roses but a bed of thorns?

What makes your life good and or bad?
11Toasted waffles or toasted bread, and why?
12How do you feel about the ageing process and you?
13What is the last rebellious thing you did?
14What would be your ideal ‘you experience’ of the following …. museum, theatre, spa day, bungee jumping?
15Could you easily step off the planet and away from society and your friends and being social and also away from the Internet for 12 months?

    Learning to say ‘No’ and that it is an acceptable answer to a request (maybe not to the one asking…) is also good. 😀

    After the rain… Hubby played 9 holes again… Not much doing in December that isn’t related to some holiday. So the radio stays off, shopping gets put on hold to avoid the crowds and the latest murder mystery gets finished.

    Not that I’m all ba-humbug. But comercializm of festivals can be as overwhelming as daily fake news.

    1. We’re on the same page relating to Christmas. The commercialization seems out of control. I remember shopping in crowded stores and didn’t like it then and would like it even less now.
      There are several festivals in our surrounding area but we stay away from those, as well.

      1. We have a small family celebration – but some of the relatives like to ‘spoil’ the kiddies. Not really much we can do without insulting those in-laws. So we grin and bear it.

        One year I think I’d like to just go away… But even then you can’t escape the overwhelming …um carried awayness of it all.

      2. Used to be when younger we had traditions that we fussed over. Now not so much. With most of that older generation gone. We don’t go overboard. We figure being there when we need to be… all the time should be enough. 🙂

        I remember one year that we went to visit out of state family and the only person to really get ‘spoiled’ was …my mother. Takes away some of the joy when one person is ‘Queen’ for the day.

        But we have an interfaith family so we pace ourselves. One side does the spoiling of the grands… but that isn’t us. We don’t even go big for birthdays anymore.

        Just settling into a different frame of mind to appriciate the present/presense of everyday. 😀

        I remember when some family used to send out over a hundred holiday cards. I got to the point where I only sent cards to those I recieved from with a few exceptions. I might get ten cards…if that many. And that’s OK.
