Sunday Reflections – 9 July 2017

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…

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…
