Sunday Reflections – 24 September 2017

Happy Sunday! This weather sucks. Like really sucks. For the past week, we have experienced the hottest temperatures all. year. long. In September. When it is officially fall. It is miserable outside, and it is supposed to last through the middle of this week. I guess it is a good thing I did not put…

Happy Sunday! After yesterday’s brilliantly sunny day and oddly warm temperatures, we seem to have hit a gloomy patch. I like cloudy Sundays though. It makes me feel less guilty about staying home and watching football. We made it through the first full week of school. It looks like the schedule is not great but…

Happy Sunday! Long weekends are the best, aren’t they? Yesterday, we finally got some time at the house, cleaning up the landscaping, cleaning inside, putting out the fall decor, and just fixing up where we live. It has been a while since we had a chunk of time and cooperating weather to do so, and…

Happy Sunday! As you can imagine, it has been a quiet week here. Holly still had dance classes to keep her occupied in the evenings, plus she had a three-day ballet boot camp that kept her busy during the latter half of the week. Jim and I are still adjusting to the quiet and only…

Happy Sunday! It’s a bittersweet day here at the house. As I type this, Jim and Connor are loading a friend’s truck with all of the stuff Connor will be taking with him to college. We leave once they are done and will be moving him into his dorm room tomorrow morning. I am still…

Happy Sunday! This post is coming to you from sunny Florida! After several long years, we finally managed to take a family vacation that does not involve dance or visiting extended family. We used Airbnb to rent a huge house and are going to make the most of our week here. The more time on…

Happy Sunday! Having a holiday on a Tuesday made for a very strange week, don’t you think? The best part about it was that we had nowhere we had to be after work this week. It was odd but wonderful and very short-lived as summer dance classes start on Monday. Yay. We are in a…

Happy Sunday! Things have thankfully settled down a bit here at Castle Shannon. Our evenings are freer than they have been in months, and our weekends are equally light on scheduled activities. I cannot say any of us minds except for Holly. She was bored after two days. The rest of us are learning what…

Happy Sunday! Whew. It has been quite the month. I did not know how we would do it, but here we are on the other side. We made it through dress rehearsal week, three variety shows, one ballet show, finals week, the last day of school, a graduation party, graduation, and freshman orientation. Jim made…

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…
