Thursday Thoughts

Hello everyone,

I’ve been trying to actually “blog”, for weeks, now. I’ve just felt uninspired and down right gloomy. Thankfully, I feel some of that exciting creative flow rushing back through my veins. It’s an indescribable sensation, the juices of nutritious writing.

I’ve been working through cobwebs of my heart and my home. Things that have sat for far too long, needing a final place to call home. Lots of “stuff”, ended up in the trash. If I no longer use it, after six months or more, it has no purpose in my life. The cobwebs in my personal life have also been cleared out. I have a great family life, and I don’t need to feel obligated to anyone and /or about anything of which I’m truly not responsible. The remaining treasures, I’ve kept, are beautiful. They’ll always have a place in my heart.

Here, in Cleveland, we’ve stayed inside while temperatures have risen into the 90s!! I can’t remember a summer in years being this hot. I don’t mind heat; however, I’ve never been a fan of humidity. The girls enjoy the patio, park, and playgrounds, usually. This heat keeps up, we’ll be at the splakshpad again, soon. It’s a fantastic place for kids to gather, and enjoy one another’s company. It’s a part of Cleveland, I’ve never seen anywhere else.

I’ve spent much of today, cooking for the weekend. Guh, these girls are so picky, and it stresses me out trying to get them to eat right. Anyway, today’s dinner is corn on the comb (my summer obsession this year, as if this happens every summer. 🤦🏼‍♀️ It sure doesn’t!) and parmesan pork chops! Everything smells amazing. Here’s the pork chop recipe.

I didn’t use the mustard and it still smells amazing!!

So other than that, I’m fretting about school uniforms, getting my car sticker for this year and trying to find time for self-care. You know, all the fun stuff. I’m so grateful, my daughter’s father is taking both girls this weekend, so I’ll be alone… Working on my mountain of laundry but at least I’m able to do it. That’s truly the gift, having the means to do it. I get on Pinterest, sometimes, and the images of other parts of our world leave me speechless. (I’m aware this is randomly off topic). There’s real issues, issues and concerns for survival, in other parts of the world. We who have commodity, should be ever so thankful… And not squander it.

That being said, have a wonderful rest of your day.

Good Afternoon, Evening, and Morning.

Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow

Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead

Walk beside me… Just be my friend.

Today’s Joy

Cuddles with cute stuffed animals!
Caramel creams candy! 


Beautiful moon after a few hours of sun! 




Peace is the beauty of life. It is sunshine. It is the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family. It is the advancement of man, the victory of a just cause, the triumph of truth.

Menachem Begin

 

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

Laugh it Away

Sadje’s story was an incredible delight to read!

Thank you, Keep It Alive, for such a cheeky and pleasant post!! I chuckled as I read what happened.

It reminds us that life really should be lived, and that we should allow ourselves the laughter rather than carry embarrassment. I’ve had a few instances where I truly embarrassed myself. What are you to do though? There’s nothing that can change the situation, and there’s nothing that can prevent mistakenly awkward from reoccurring… So, just laugh out loud, bid them good day, and be on your way😂😂
