Socks are my favorite gift to give and receive. Yep. I’m a sock giver. And proud of it. Socks are useful. Who doesn’t need socks? I gave my dad some diabetic socks. I’ve even gotten myself some diabetic socks, even though I’m not diabetic. I could be if I don’t watch my sugar, which I have been doing for the past few days, watching those cookies get closer and closer until they are gone into my mouth and my tummy. Soon I will detox from sugar. And get back to socks, which I will need to wear to the gym when I go work out on Monday.
I had just bought myself some new socks, a big pack of white ones, not as soft and stretchy as the diabetic ones, which is what I was going to explain as the reason I get them before I got distracted by something up there. Well, I got the new pack of socks because I would be working out at the gym I just joined with the city parks and recreation dept. for a very good price, and because it was getting cold. WAS is the key word, because where I am, on the east coast of the US, this is the warmest Christmas I can remember. We have the windows open right now and I hear the crickets chirping, because I usually do this post the night before so I can sleep late, and It’s almost Saturday.
Is this global warming? Sigh.
So, I’m back to wearing my sandals that feel like flip flops because they’re “Crocs” which I love. But I hope the cold comes back to kill off some of the pesky bugs for awhile. It’s the natural way of pest control for someone who does not like to use toxic chemicals. But if this is global warming, believe I will stock up on an anti-insect arsenal instead of socks. I know that will be the least of my worries, but I’m hoping we will slow the warming and this is just a fluke warm spell, maybe.
I don’t know how to fit this in, but it did cross my mind when I saw that today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt was, as you probably know: “socks.” I guess I could say it’s about bringing on the winter weather, or would I rather have bugs?

They sure look like they’re having a good time!
If you’d like to join in the good times at the Saturday SOC prompt and post, visit Linda’s blog:
Here are the rules:
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.
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!
