Sunday Reflections – 21 May 2017

Happy Sunday! While most of you are enjoying a lazy Sunday at home, because lazy and Sunday are synonymous, the Shannon family is scattered today with a variety of activities. Only a few more weeks of this left, and we are all counting down to the end of the school year. I mentioned on Friday…

Happy Sunday! Yes, we are all still alive and plugging along. There are officially five weeks of school left, and every one of us knows it. There is just SO MUCH to do in the next five weeks. You would think it is not possible to be this busy, but every year I prove myself wrong….

Happy Sunday! Yes, we are all alive and healthy! It has been quite a month, and we are all enjoying the brief respite before we get into the last weeks of school. Did anyone watch April the giraffe give birth yesterday morning? I somehow clicked on it at just the right time and was able…

Happy Sunday! It may be the first day of Daylight Savings Time, but today was as gloomy as a mid-January day. If I have to lose an hour of sleep, I would much prefer to see the sun. Instead, now I feel even more tired and crabby. Blech. Things are rolling along here for the…

Happy Sunday! Everyone here is taking a quick breather this morning before the next event. It has been a busy weekend for us. Connor had a forensics meet on Friday for which I got sucked into volunteering to help tabulate results. Neither one of use got home until late Friday night. On Saturday, Jim had to…

Happy Sunday! I don’t know about where you live, but it was absolutely gorgeous this weekend with sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60s. This is not normal February weather, so we all took advantage of it. Windows were opened, and we all found reasons to stay outside as much as possible. The weather…

Happy Sunday! Coming at you from a decidedly snow-free southern Wisconsin. Plus, it is near 40 degrees again today and supposed to be even warmer tomorrow. I don’t like this weather. I want my snow. It makes me feel better about not wanting to leave the house. This week was another rough one. Work kept…

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Or as I am calling it this year, just another Sunday. Does anyone really care about the game this year? I just feel like there are other things that are more worthwhile than watching Tom Brady and Bill Belichick cheat their way through another game. I am happy for the Falcons but…

Happy Sunday! Or not. Maybe this should read Angry Sunday? Because the president is doing a great job making people angry, myself included. I don’t know about you but I was hypnotized by the news this week. I could not tear myself away from Twitter as the executive orders starting rolling in. It got so…

Happy Sunday! I am still riding the high from all of the pictures and stories from yesterday’s Women’s March. I could not march in person but I was there in spirit with each and every person who did. For the first time since November, I feel hope for our future, and I am actually rather…
