Monday Musings

Well hello!  And happy Monday Musings to you!

I'm just back from a dreadful Sam's Club and a grocery run besides.  If you came over right now, you'd see the kitchen full of bags that need to be unloaded.  Luckily for me, I blog fast and the freezer stuff is safely tucked away already.

I love self-check because I can bag things exactly like I like to so when I bring it in, everything is conveniently together like it is in the cupboards and fridge.

I do enjoy food shopping.  I do not enjoy clothes shopping (you probably can tell by my attire!).  I was in a store the other day and my head almost literally started spinning with the options.  I'm just wondering if anyone out there wants to be my personal shopper?  I want to look radiant and lovely in color-coordinated, slightly-conservative clothes and all of this accomplished on a shoe-string budget.  I'll pay you with meals or homemade baked goods.  Thanks!  Looking forward to our future business partnership!

The Easter Bunny was at the mall!  I'm just wondering if it is the same guy inside that plays Santa?  The Easter Bunny comes across a bit more bouncy-fun though.  And yes, the kids were screaming their heads off as mom or dad plopped little "Liam" on the Bunny knee.  Poor kid.

I had a bad bleaching accident with a load of clothes for one of the MYP.  I am not sure what happened but I ruined two shirts and a pair of leggings.  You win some and you lose some.  I'll have to make it up to her.  (sigh)

So are you all happy we "sprung forward" with the clocks?  I always seem to see complaints from others on social media.  It didn't bother me one iota.  I turned the clocks ahead on Saturday around 3 and happily hopped in bed an hour early and woke up normally.  However, I don't have young kids.  We had time change the eve of special meeting for years when we had three crumb-crunchers and it was brutal.  Somehow we all survived.

Remember my New Year's resolution?  I was going to attempt to see some shut-ins that I normally wouldn't go see.  I have mostly failed at doing it very frequently.  However, a month or so ago, a friend and I went to see this elderly man with a gentle soul.  It was a tender and sweet visit.  And yesterday, we heard he passed away.  I'm so very thankful that we took the time to go sit with him for just a little while.

Celebrated my mama's belated birthday with mile-high pie.  She's the best.  Really.

Yep.  Especially when you pull out bleach-streaked clothes.

for silly...

cats interfere with kite flying 

always wanting to come in again (and yes, I let them)

get it????  took me awhile.


And let me tell you, we have LOTS of birdies that are back in the yard.  

Not that I'd ever yell... 


  1. 3 seconds (did you get it?) My daughter just rolls her eyes when it comes to my clothes. The only place I like to shop for clothes is Good Will.

  2. When you find the personal shopper...let me know. I pay in tight hugs!! ;-)

  3. Ah- so now I've found the ' but I don't have young kids' post that SK referred to! Fun catching up on blogs in an almost timely fashion for a change. :-)
    There are several of my co-workers over here that I've sometimes nearly managed to farm my shopping out to. Only problem is, they're somewhat random and at least one of them has a beard....which could be a bit awkward!
    I loved that pi day shot! Took me a minute, but when I got it, I busted right out laughing.

  4. Maybe you should try Stitch Fix...I have friends who think it's great. I like to GO shopping too much to try it.
