A Memorial Day Hodgepodge Post

What says Memorial Day better than a big ole ice cream sundae?? This one features me and my daughter! How cool is that?? The other day while the kids were testing I ran to the grocery store with two of my children. We were delighted to see a big Smuckers truck outside giving away mini ice cream sundaes, bags of coupons, and even taking these cute pictures. It was a fun little surprise in the midst of an ordinary Wednesday. I thought it would be fun to share here. Thanks for indulging me.

What are you doing for Memorial Day? We are having people over for a cookout. Hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, chips. watermelon, with... what else? Ice cream with hot fudge for dessert! All foods that remind me of my favorite season... summertime! Our neighborhood pool is officially open and summer is in the air.
I hope to blog more this week than I did last... thanks for your patience. I cut and pasted this quote from Elizabeth Foss' blog because it was so fitting:

...My life is not my own. My writing is not my own. It's the bubbling
up of what's happening here and what's happening here is not conducive to
contemplative musings...

That's the truth for me as well. With some writing deadlines and other life stuff, I am not feeling the freedom to blog as much as I want to. But that doesn't mean I won't. I will find the time, or make the time. And when I can't, I know you guys will understand, as you are living similar lives. But I know I will continue to blog because I love it. Blogging provides an outlet and an accounting of the many moments that make up my life. If for nothing else, I blog for the sake of preserving a bit of the zanyness that is my life. It all goes by so fast. If I didn't have blogging to help me notice things, to slow things down to a manageable speed, I could miss it all together. And, to quote Aerosmith, I don't want to miss a thing.
Pin It!

I totally agree! Blogging allows me to see the big things in the little things.

Very cute picture. Who needs to stop and smell the roses when you can stop and eat chocolate covered ice cream instead.
Have a great day!
