Sunday Share Week 11

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.

Have a great day!

Sunday Share 500+

I’m not sure how it happened. I’m not sure when it happened. I do know that it did indeed happen.

500+

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.

Sunday Share… One for the Kids

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.

Happy reading!

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!

Have a great Monday, y’all!

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.

Happy Reading!

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!

My FitBit is lying to me. It’s telling me today was a lazy day. It’s saying I’m just under 6,000 steps at 9 pm. I know I did more than that!

  • I made chocolate chip banana pancakes for breakfast
  • I washed sheets from three beds
  • I washed comforters from three beds
  • I made three bed after everything was dry
  • I made two YouTube videos – one for Crash and one for Bang (don’t forget to supervise  subscribe)
  • I swept the kitchen floor
  • I took all the toys that were drug upstairs back to the basement
  • I went grocery shopping
  • I put those groceries away
  • I made pork tenderloin, smashed potatoes, carrots, and corn for supper
  • I helped two kids get ready for bed
  • I played Lego

Stupid thing. I felt busy, but according to FitBit I wasn’t. Ever had one of those day?

Now this I can relate to. Kids in grocery stores can be a nightmare.

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.

This week was the week of 400. No, we’re not Spartans. But we are Sparta strong! Nah… This post is my 400th. Hard to believe I’ve written that much since The Beginning. Not sure if it’s gotten any better, but I am doing more of it. If more equals better, I’m on the right track. Y’all keep coming back so I’ll keep giving you a reason.

This week also brought my 300th WP follower! Thank you Jessie Jeanine! She is a survivor who has dedicated her time to being a “voice for the victims”. Please check out her blog. You won’t be disappointed.

You won’t be disappointed by these visits either…

This week I bring you posts all about the kids. One, of whom I’m just recently met, is a kid herself. One is about a kid who technically isn’t born yet, but still. It’s a kid in a womb without a view. Happy reading and feel free to leave your own link in the comments for us!

Happy reading! I’ll be out shoveling the foot of snow we got last night out of the driveway. Then we’ll finish building the igloo we started with the 8 inches of snow we got last Wednesday.
