Pondering with a Purpose - Watch

Welcome to Pondering with a Purpose -
 This is my weekly hop where I post a prompt and you get to write to it on your - come back here and add it to my linky and then we all get to go read what you wrote!
I started Pondering with a Purpose because -- simply put -- I am a writer - - that is what I do (I just can't help myself)! And although I love following all the hops, I wanted to see if I could bring out some creativity in not only myself, but some of my blogger friends as well.

The rules are really easy:

1. Grab the Pondering with a Purpose Badge (in my sidebar)
2. Look at the week's prompt
3. Post something on your blog that relates to the prompt - it can be a story, a poem, a picture -- anything you want it to be.
4. Come back here and add the URL from your post to the linky list below.
5. Go check out the other bloggers who have added their links to the list.
6. AND most of all.... Have fun!

Today's prompt is: Watch

I have to tell you this working with words with double meanings has become quite interesting to me.... the way different people think about a word tells a lot about a person!

So..when you read watch....what do you think about?

The first thing that pops into my mind is the engraved watch I have from my grandparents that I received for my college graduation... I no longer wear it...and am not even sure there is anyone around who could fix it... I also have a Mickey Mouse watch... one of the originals with manual movements that does not work either... it is more of a keepsake now and less of a functioning tool.  Do you still wear a watch? I use my phone.... (I think that is what most people do now adays!)

And of course there is people watching.... where you just sit and watch.... or watch television or a movie.... or how about when you watch your weight? In reality you cannot watch your weight but it is a common phrase.

I'd love to read your comment, or read your linked up post... or better yet Both!

Happy Pondering


  1. very thought provoking. I didn't think about watching my weight even though the doctor told me to lose 10 pounds.

    1. lol.... glad I could provoke some thoughts!

  2. Hope you don't mind a re-run of a post, but I am pondering with you....

    1. I don't mind at all...just glad you joined

  3. Oh, I so need to watch my weight! Actually no - what I need to do is stop "watching" it and do something about it.

    1. that moves from watching to doing.....

  4. I wear a watch, force of habit after all those years of nursing. I am always watching people, it is fun to try and work a story around some of them.

  5. You have quite a collection of watches! And I love the daffodils--so cheery and a hopeful reminder of Spring! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  6. Have you been watching for me? LOL
    better late than never!

    today was a real live coffee chat with some other moms, and then grocery day, so I was a bit behind. I love to people watch -- did some today at the cafe I was at --- while people watched my child. there you go, a 2for! LOL

    1. lol.... I was watching for you... and no is open for 7 days...

  7. I still wear a watch even though I carry my phone. I don't know why, but I resist using the phone for a clock with everything in me.

    And I refuse to talk about watching my weight....too depressing!
