Random Brain Sparks

  • Remember when I told you I needed a little break?  Time sure has flown by, hasn't it?  The first week of school is finished, and we've got 35 more weeks of school to go, so I've been told, but who's counting anyway..
  • Summer is slipping away, but my brain sparks are back, at least for now, and I am grateful.
  • My daughter proudly exclaimed the other day that I should be a writer.  She was quite impressed with the way I worded something.  I told her I could write, that I write on a blog, but that I just lacked ideas for a book.  She's fourteen, and her taste in authors might not be all that impeccable.  
  • My bosses oldest son just left home.  I can totally empathize.  Perhaps we could commiserate together.
  • This is the first time in over 4 years that I have the afternoons at home to myself now that the boys are gone and Ladybug is back in school.  
  • Also, do not ever try dark chocolate covered Acai berries.  Don't say I didn't warn you.  This point and the one before it may or may not be directly related.  
  • The picture above totally answers, well, EVERYTHING.
  • My house is clean, AMEN!


  1. Thank you for the warning about the Acai berries. And it is strange to have the house to myself when the kids are at school and the husband is at work. Strange but wonderful!

  2. The Acai berries are very very yummy! We start school in a week! I think the consolation for the day my kids will grow up is that I am genuinely excited to have more time to spend with my husband!

  3. Chocolate covered Acai berries?? YUM, I must look out for these :-)
    Ah, the afternoons of 'freedom'...... I have Fridays to myself (no kids, no husband, no pets) just me, myself and I. I used to feel guilty looking forward to Fridays so much but now I just enjoy it.
    Enjoy your afternoons!

  4. Needed your sweet humor today! I think I'll take some chocolate any way I can get it at this moment. Please send some over!!

  5. my kids are still home and my house is not clean...but oh...I feel fall and back to school in the air...I am counting the days UNTIL school starts!!
    enjoy your afternoons.


Always happy to hear from you! Comments make my day, just please keep them uplifting and positive. Thanks for stopping by!
