Stream of Consciousness Saturday Prompt *Rhymes with Rosy* #SoSC

We’ve been working on the pool for weeks, cleaning, getting the chemicals just right, and stocking up on supplies. The highlight for me is being able to swim, I hear it is great therapy for pain. I haven’t swum in years because I get burnt very quickly from all the antibiotics taken during Lyme treatment. This year he is installing a wind sail over the pool with blocks most of the sun. I ask him about it every day. I sat outside yesterday for a few minutes talking to him about the install date, maybe tomorrow he said. I had SPF 50 all over my face and body but still got quite rosy.

Third degree burns are what we’re trying to protect from, that’s what happened the first year on antibiotic therapy.  

Short but fitting for a holiday weekend. Be safe and have a great time with family and friends.

Here are the rules for SoCS:

  1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

  2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

  3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.

  4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

  5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

  6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

  7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

  8. Have fun!


  1. That must make things incredibly difficult & frustrating, but I think swimming could be wonderful, and any ways you can work around the possible problems (like the cover over the pool, extra shade) should help you manage even just short spells in there. Keep us updated on the install 🙂
