Sunday Reflections – 14 January 2018

Happy Sunday! It was an unexpected sick day today as I was felled by either a stomach bug or something I ate. I am feeling better but still planning on taking it easy for the rest of the evening. I had plans to get all sorts of things done today but took a nap and…

Happy Sunday! We are experiencing temperatures closer to freezing than zero for the first time in two weeks today, so this is a happy day indeed. It doesn’t mean I have plans to go outside today, but at least if someone makes me go outside I know I don’t have to wear layers to do…

Happy Sunday! It’s a gloomy Sunday afternoon right now. Connor is picking up Holly from her first of two dance rehearsals today. Jim and I are watching football and Tallulah is in her usual spot sleeping on a lap. In other words, it is a typical early winter Sunday in the Shannon household. We all…

Happy Sunday! It is cloudy and cold. There is snow on the ground. We are expected to get more snow tonight and tomorrow. Inside however, the tree is trimmed. Christmas songs are playing. A load of laundry is in the washing machine. Holly has a batch of sugar cookies in the oven. Jim is icing…

Happy Sunday! Weirdly warm temperatures FTW! Or not. I don’t care if it is rainy tomorrow, a 61F degree high is not normal for Wisconsin in December, and I refuse to accept it. Call me old-fashioned or a traditionalist or what have you. December (in Wisconsin) needs to be cold and snow. That is normal….

Happy Sunday! Last week was cold and gloomy. Today was 50F and sunny. How different a week can be! It is odd to have such warm weather after Thanksgiving, and I cannot help but contemplate the reasons for this warm weather. Still, I am going to enjoy not having to wear a winter coat for…

Happy Sunday! It is cold. It is gloomy. Yet again. I can’t think of one day this month that has been completely sunny. It is brutal on your mood. Even getting out of bed is tough these days. Still. Thanksgiving is this weekend. My entire family is home. There are worse things that could be…

Happy Sunday! It is cloudy and cold here today, which means it is the perfect day to stay inside under blankets. That is exactly what I am going to do too. GRATEFUL FOR: This week has been another week fraught with stories of sexual abuse. While difficult to read, I am so grateful for everyone who…

Happy Sunday! It seems our weather shifted from beautiful autumnal weather to that dreary, damp, dark weather that tends to be our winters here in southern Wisconsin. This is the type of weather that saps my energy and makes me want to hibernate. I am hoping the sun decides to make an appearance one of…

Happy Sunday! It is bright and sunny and I woke in my own bed this morning! It is also 37 degrees as I type this, so there are drawbacks to the bright skies. I think it is safe to say that the weather has officially shifted away from summer. Thank goodness. Holly and I survived…
