My blanket is my hero…

Time to Ponder yet again. You know the drill… I post a prompt that has multiple meanings and we get see what you write! Add you post to the linky and wait for the magic!!

(If you want to send me words that you would like us all to ponder – please feel free to do so!)

Today’s word is BLANKET (you can always grab the prompt early by visiting the Pondering Page)


This one was challenging but I think I nailed it!

I will probably hate myself for saying this thought OUT LOUD but after this week and all the muggy high temps we have had, I am longing to look out and see a blanket of snow cover the world!

Where I work,¬† we run around an office full of copy editors¬† or (chickens without our heads) checking on the status to sending large portfolios which requires sometimes an individual “okay” or if we are lucky, we can get a “blanket” okay which makes our lives SO MUCH EASIER!

Both of kids had homemade blankets given as gifts from some amazing folks. While my son had one very specific blanket he couldn’t live without, my daughter had 3 and each blanket had to be laid across her in the right order, OR she wouldn’t sleep. ( slight early onset of OCD) which over time, fluttered away like a blanket hanging from a line before snapping off. Where as our blankets this week have been pushed to the floor because it’s TOO hot!


And how many of us grew up tying sheets and blankets around our necks to be the next super hero!!!!


Random Thoughts Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday!


My brain is a tad scattered this morning because I have a zillion things to take care of while actually working full time!


Sigh… responsibility kinda blows!

My kids start back to school in 3 weeks. 3 WEEKS! Where did summer go????

In two weeks our family is going on a camping trip. CANNOT WAIT! Camping with my hubby and his dad is the best vacation because they do EVERYTHING. I simple document the event with my camera to prove I was there! WE are not the RV kind of campers, we are the family that in order to camp with us, you MUST have 4wheel drive to get where we are going. It is kinda awesome, just saying.

In those same two weeks, the kids each have doctors appointments for physicals – thankfully at the same time!

WE still need to finish painting the front door and the garage door to our newly sided house so everything matches. Our home is currently sporting a taupe with white trip and very faded yellow garage door.

My back yard will be the end of me because the landscaping I envision in my brain requires more talent and $$$$ than I currently have.

I need to design and make a card for a swap I am participating in and the best thing about this one is I already have the design in my brain, I just need to bring it to LIFE. Muhahahaha.

See what I did there…. lol.


I need time to just slooooow down.

If either of my children were in sports, I would need more coffee in a day because I can barely keep up with life now.

TO my geeky children, bless you! ( while at times I curse the computers and technology) I am also thankfully that I am not running either of you around to sporting events. ( I totally would) but am glad its not necessary.



Here is to a fabulous Tuesday!
