Mama Kats Writer's Workshop

The prompt:
If social media died tomorrow, describe another hobby you might get into.

The only social media I currently use is Blogging and I guess e-mail, and I will be doing it mainly to keep in touch after I retire. I have plenty of time for hobbies even if it all died tomorrow since I am old and remember how to write letters and put it in the mailbox, I would start doing that, and I would probably journal, instead of blog, to let my kids and grandson, know what Grandma was thinking about. Mr Bankerchick is on Facebook and I might do it as well, since, friends at work are on it and they all say I should.

One thing I would like to learn once I retire, is more from a DIY standpoint. I would love to take a carpentry class, to learn to measure twice and cut once. My Grandpa was a carpenter, as was my uncle. I think it might be in the genes and I would love to learn some skills.

The Prompts:

1.) Girls Night Out! Describe the last time you got to hang out with your friends? What stops you from doing this more often?
2.) If Social Media died tomorrow, describe another hobby you might get into.
3.) Share a Summer Camp memory.
4.) We’re too old to be getting in trouble…aren’t we? Write about a time you were scolded…as an adult.
5.) Barefoot and hormonal…describe an incident that upset you when you were pregnant, but now looking back makes you laugh.


  1. I think learning carpentry would be a lot of fun. Best wishes to you if you do go for it!

    I am old, too, (45) and remember writing letters to my aunt (grandma's sister) and waiting for her reply. It was, and still is, exciting to get a 'real' letter in the mailbox.

    I'm here from Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. Have a great evening!

  2. Carpentry would be a great thing to learn!

  3. I don't think I would make if Social Media went away! Glad to meet you via Mama Kat, btw! :)

  4. It's all about social media for me. My phone is attached at the hip. From my laptop and phone I read newspapers, shop, order pizza, get directions, text kids and grandkids, play scrabble with friends (wwf), listen to music, check the weather, listen to police radio etc. Blogging and fb are a big part of it too.
