Random Thoughts #6: At school today…

Those kindergarteners and 1st graders who’ll pick up a roly-poly or a cricket or a worm with their bare fingers. 😐

There were some fires in the area and because of the ash floating around in the air, the kids at my school couldn’t go out to play for 2 days. 2 days. That’s 6 recesses missed. To say they were annoyed is an understatement.

Saw an 18-wheeler make a U-turn in a narrow street the other day. Very harrowing to watch.

Two 2nd grade girls:
Girl 1: “Look, on the tag. “American Girl doll. Made in China.””
Girl 2: “Oh, my goodness, everything’s made in China!”

Plaid is cozy.

Did you know there are kids who can take the crust off an Uncrustable? O_o

Whoever came up with the idea to make toothpaste minty? Genius 😎

Is grilling while watching “Ice Age” the height of irony? #SoCal in #January #doesntfeellikewinter At least we’re getting lovely cloudy weather (my fave!) now. And even a little rain πŸ˜€

Frozen is obviously all the rage among school kids. This is evident not just because wherever I turn, 1st and 2nd graders are singing “Let It Go,” but because I heard a middle school boy singing “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” πŸ˜•


This post was shorter than usual. I don’t know why.

Well, that’s all the time we have for today, folks. Remember, God made you special, and He loves you very much!

Random Thoughts #5: Certain Occurrences

Restaurant “secret menu items” 😎

Eggnog. Chocolate. Candy Canes. Cookies. Marshmallows. Christmas goodies are the best πŸ™‚

Cold coffee is just as good as, if not better than, hot coffee.

We were at relatives’ for New Years’ Day, and watched some of the Rose Bowl. The Fiesta Bowl which followed was more exciting, though πŸ˜‰ I found it interesting that this year’s Fiesta Bowl was sponsored by Tostitos πŸ˜†

In the days leading up to Christmas, the prevailing question among my Ks, 1st and 2nd graders was “Is Santa real?” Now, they’re back from break and studying astronomy and outer space because of the Magi, and the big question is “Are aliens real?”

Watched “The Fellowship of the Ring” with my 8-year old brother (his first time actually sitting down and seeing it). His main observations:
β€’”That was close!”
β€’”So sad!”
β€’”This is a cool movie!”

You know the Piano Guys. You know Lindsey Stirling. But do you know Taylor Davis? She is ahh-mazing 😎

Mondays. My least fave day of the week. Weekend is over, and work again begins.

God incarnate
Here to dwell
Praise His Name

Whatever you’re going through, however hard your days (Mondays or whatever is your hardest) are, remember God is there. Always there.
