Technolgy is Amazing
This part of the year is my absolute favorite time to watch television because I love watching Christmas shows, but since Ron spends most of his time in the family room, I've been missing them.
Mostly those shows men don't like to watch, like Hallmark because the tv set in the bedroom isn't hooked up to cable.
Ron, being the sweetheart that he is, mustered up the strength to go to the store. He bought me a new television set with built in Roku for my Birthday.
It's totally amazing. It tunes in all the cable channels through wifi without having to pay extra to get them.
Not to mention all the built in movies and tv shows.
Woohoo! Christmas Shows galore.
Technology, certainly is a wonderful thing.
A Fresh Set of Eyes
Take an event and look at it with a fresh set of eyes.
Maybe it's something as simple as Christmas morning breakfast.
Instead of focusing on what you are actually cooking, find a new angle to observe it.
Does it have any connection with traditions passed down over the years?
Why are you preparing this meal?
What is the meaning behind it?
Or maybe your attention is drawn to something you see through the kitchen window.
Listen to those instant thoughts that come to mind.
Start writing or recording your words to use later.
Word Prompt = Breakfast
I was writing a Christmas poem when my muse wrote 'cinnamon rolls' which got me thinking about breakfast.
So there you have it. The magic of how I chose this weeks word prompt.
"Breakfast" is the first meal we eat after waking up from a night's sleep.
It provides us nourishment to begin our day.
Maybe you have a traditional breakfast you serve on Holidays like Christmas.
Or you eat the same food day after day.
Maybe you skip breakfast altogether.
Tell us where you enjoy eating breakfast ~ Maybe it's your favorite restaurant, breakfast in bed, the kitchen table, or outdoors on the patio.
Or your favorite type of breakfast food.
Do you grab something quick to eat or do you go all out and cook up a feast?
This word fits in many different directions.
It might be funny or sad. The truth or make believe. But whatever you decide, I'll be here waiting to read it.
It'll be fun to look through what your muse conjures up.
So let's grab a pen and start jotting down a few ideas.

Magic Never Hurts ~ John Hansen
She picks up her pen, hoovers over the page, and waits for the words to flow.
Once an idea surfaces, her fingers can't stop. Her muse is on a roll.
She forces herself to take a break but the words creep into her dreams.
When she awakes, she uses her enchanted pen to pick up where she left off.
She writes until her pen runs out of ink, then proofreads it. Her work it wasn't bad.
She soon gets it published & rises to fame.
It was like a helping hand guided her with a magical pen.
