Prompt for the Day: “Summer”



The obvious thinking people at the Daily Post group of Word Press chose the word “Summer” for us to base our artristic works for the first meteorological day of summer in the U.S.A..

Music came to Mind First

First song that popped in my head comes from a favourite show of mine Grease “Summer Nights“.  There are many more popular summer songs.  “Summertime” by Billy Stewart back in 1966.  “Cruel Summer” by Bananarama in 1983.  “Summertime Blues” by Eddie Cochran back in 1958.  The “Summer Song” featuring Chad & Jeremy in 1964.  “Summer Breeze” from Seals and Crofts from 1972.  Who can forget Nat King Cole’s “Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer” in 1963?

Summer” by War was released in 1976.  Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer” was released in 1984.  “Summer of ’69” by Bryan Adams in 1985 is a personal favourite of mine.  After that came Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer” in 1984.  Then came the “Endless Summer Nights” by Richard Marx in 1988.  “Summer Girls” came out 1999 by LFO.

More recently, there is “Summer Love” by Justin Timberlake in 2007.

Personal Thoughts on Summer

I hate it!  The constant heat saps my energy down to nothing.  Wake up sweating even though the house is completely air conditioned.  With out the air conditioning, I would be experiencing continuous grand mal seizures that my medical staff are at a loss to reproduce or fully explain!  Apparently, the multiple sclerosis that I suffer from is causing it somehow. Their only suggestion is to remain inside as much as I can.

How am I supposed to get out if for nothing else than to arrive at their facilities for my scheduled appointments?  Have to go outside to check on the tomatoes my husband and I planted in May.

Please Help Fight Hideous Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

Prompt for the Day: “Natural”

The people working at the Daily Post division of Word Press who must be word smiths by nature chose the word “Natural” for our daily artistic works to be a representative of today.

Prefer Foods We Grow Ourselves

At least then I know for sure no added chemicals have touched their surfaces!  No bug sprays or strange fertilizers are used in the production of my vegetables.  This year am only growing tomatoes.  Next year, if the endeavour is successful, will be growing them and more plant varieties.

Deciding what to plant will be something me and my husband will have to decide on over the winter.  Cucumbers, peppers, herbs, and many other things could be grown here at home!

Foods that occur in nature naturally like dandelions aren’t things I personally like to eat, but wild onions from a remote location  taste really good!  Just have to be careful they were not subjected to spraying of chemicals in the general vicinity.  Washing them off with clean water may not be enough to get rid of the contaminates, unfortunately.

Wild straw berries are a take your chances if you come across them.  Natural nuts are normally safe to eat.  Wild rhubarb used to grow around the fields near where I grew up as a child.  Not a fan of that particular plant myself.  Preferred coming across wild blue berry plants!  That was a rarity, but it was good.

Prompt for the Day: “Rebuild”

The people apparently from America’s reconstruction era of our country’s history want us to concentrate all of our artistic talents on the word “Rebuild” for today.

Have No Desire to Reconstruct My Life

The life I had while we lived in Colorado is long in the past.  Miss the people we knew there, but they have also moved on and away from the location.  People in that state now have changed both in religions and number of immigrants to our country (some legal, but too many not legally living here in America).

Went through too many trials to get to the point my husband and I are now in.  Here and Now, we are living in a handicap accessible home (have to redo the upstairs bathroom, but that will happen after the next year’s tax returns come in).  Just have to be patient and wait for it to come!

Have started growing fresh tomatoes in garden boxes.  Have not tried growing anything since the straw berries in CO.  They were unsuccessful, but that may have been from the inhospitable growing environment.  Even the grass (you know the stuff that grows on the ground naturally in most paces) we tried to nurture there did not grow as planed!

Prompt for the Day: “Flourish”

Are the people at the Daily Post division of Word Press insinuating that I embellish my writing?  They chose the word “Flourish” for our daily works of art to be based on.

Yeah, I Tend to use Big Words

How else can I hope to improve my vocabulary if I don’t put the words to use in daily life?  It is not like you have to actually own a dictionary these days.  You can just look the words up on the internet.  Gave up on actually reading the dictionary back in grade school.  The book had no plot (technically, the word plot was included in the book).  My husband pointed this out to me the last time I made that statement.

Hope the two tomato plants we planted thrive over the summer.  Planning on devouring the big juicy delicious vegetables when they ripen.  A salt shaker near by would be a wonderful accompaniment! Hope the plant’s flowers multiply, since the flowers grow into the actual tomato vegetables.

Next year, if the planting turns out successfully, will purchase another planter to grow peppers and herbs in it.  Who knows what the future of my gardening exploits we lead us?
