It’s Sunday. It’s raining. I’m trying to make the boys clean, but I’d have better luck trying to teach Chinese Calculus to a barrel of monkeys. It’s their own mess, too.
The peppers are coming along nicely in the living room. As is the maple tree. We have carrots, cucumber, beans, peas, and lettuce seeds anxiously waiting to be planted in the garden. We just need to get past the last frost which is somewhere between now and May 21st. I’ll probably plant them next week and keep them covered.
We’re almost 8 weeks into 2018. Have I learned anything yet this year? I have learned a few new Keto recipes for DW. I learned Crash doesn’t like spaghetti squash substituted for spaghetti. I learned to spell spaghetti so I don’t have to type “sketti” even though that’s what everyone calls it. I learned that if we don’t have chocolate chips, Bang would rather starve than have a chocolate chipless pancake. I also learned that just because you’re in 10th place that doesn’t mean you can’t still win it all!
I also learned that these are some good reads from this week…
Good Morning, Sunday! I hope everyone had a good night’s sleep. Good luck catching that lost hour for those of you who turned your clocks ahead. Crash was up at 6:30 (really 5:30 before the clocks the changed). Bang was up at 7 (really 6 before the time change). Fortunately, this is our March Break so we don’t have school all week. Lots of time for them to get caught up. Or be so tired and cranky that I’ll fear for their survival.
I’m not sure how it happened. I’m not sure when it happened. I do know that it did indeed happen.
500 followers? Thank you everyone!
Congratulations and thank you to Francis and Anna. I think this blogging couple was my 500th follower. At least they were the 500th counting backwards from my current followers. I missed capturing the 500th by 3. My good friend Dori, aka MamaParms from the blog Green Grapes, missed it by one! She was the 501st.
Thank you everyone who stops by to read. Whether you stop by everyone now and then or you read regularly, I appreciate the time you take on my blog. It really does put the fun in blogging.
This is a special Sunday Share. I’m not sharing the “big time” bloggers. I’m not sharing posts that already have hundreds of views. Today’s three posts are all brought to you by people younger than 18. Actually, they might all be younger than 12. Just because they aren’t adults, doesn’t mean they don’t have anything to say. Sometimes what they say will leave us in stitches. Sometimes they’ll leave us thinking.
His first post and already he’s thinking of what to write for his next
This is 2.0. Updated to be posted on Monday instead of my usual Sunday. If you’re lucky you’ll get a second post today. If you’re not lucky… well at least you have 5 links here to check out and are TOTALLY worth it.

There was one I really wanted to share but forgot to save. Help! It was photo challenge (I think) to capture shots emphasising the colors of the rainbow. One of the photos was of a child with stunning blue eyes. The other photos were incredible, too. If anyone has seen could you let me know which one it was? Thanks!
Mmm… ginger chai tea. It’s my current favorite. Like most of life, though, it needs a bit of sugar to sweeten it up. I’ve tried drinking it without, but it’s just not the same. A warm cup of delicious tea does wonders for a sore throat and stuffy head. I’ll be in bed soon. But I needed to leave you with last week’s good reads for today’s Sunday Share before I visit Lily White. I’ve got this good book I’m reading that I’ll have to tell you about some day. The girl just discovered there’s more to life than meets the eye. I can’t wait find out how she reacts.
Hello Sunday. What a good day you are. Except that you have Monday eerily hanging around at an awkward distance. Though you did bring Saturday to the party, so I’ll have to give you that.
Hope this Sunday found you happy, healthy and full of just enough energy to get the crap done you didn’t have time for during the week. Happy reading! I’m gonna go get the 3,239 steps I need to get my 10,000… Ugh, Crash beat me this weekend!
Help my brother reach $1,000 donated to The Roswell Cancer Institute. This year he rides in honor of Melina Selent who, at the age of 10 months, had retinoblastoma, an eye cancer.
A friend of mine, a running buddy, had just finished running 26.2 miles in Boston in 2013. He was sitting in the medical tent recovering when the bombs exploded. Because of his location at the time, he saw most of the victims prior to triage and being taken to hospital. Please visit his page and, if you can, help him reach his goal of $5,000 to 50 Legs, an organization working to empower those without.
