SoCS- 1-7-23 Out of the Box

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “out of the box.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “out of the box.” Enjoy!

This prompt brought back a delightful memory! My normal tendency to wax philosophically has been interrupted for this public service announcement to grandmas and childcare givers.

During my childcare years, I became a children’s programing connoisseur. Around the year 2000, I had a favorite program that the kids and I watched. It was called Out of the Box and was produced by Disney. I haven’t thought of it in years!
It had storytelling, music, and art projects that were wonderful. One segment, in particular, came to mind because I couldn’t help but dance to it. Upon revisiting it… I still needed to dance! I posted it for y’all below.

The cast, content, and messages in this delightful show was excellent and I hope anyone who is lucky enough to be in the presence of young kids (and still has a happy, silly, heart) will look it up on YouTube. There are full episodes available. You won’t be disappointed.

I can’t imagine where children’s programming has gone lately. I’m confident its better days are behind us.
Happy Saturday friends! Let’s dance. ❤



Ronovan Writes Sijo Wednesday #34- Enjoy the Dance

Prompt: Dance

You should use the word in the title of this post as your inspiration as either a theme of the Sijo or in the poem itself.

There are:

  • Three Lines
  • 14-16 syllables per line
  • A total of 44-46 syllables for the entire poem.



Life is so disorderly it’s quite hard to manage well.
The problem is the idea that we are in a battle.
We’re merely dancers; hoping to lead but fated to follow.

Weekly Smile- Catchy Tune



I realized something cool this week. I like Spam calls.
Wait… no one likes Spam calls, you say?
Well, since I changed my ringtone, I love their happy little interruptions.
My homeschooling gang and I love unscheduled happy dancing and my ringtone is perfect!
It’s Come and Get Your Love by Redbone and we all get a brief unexpected smile ( and dance) when it starts out of nowhere from a call.
Just wish it lasted longer before going to voicemail! LOL
