Silly Saturday Post - A Conglomeration

Happy Weekend!

All right. I give up. I've been looking at photos for at least an hour and a half, and could only find just a few photos. I'll include a funny video at the bottom, instead. My boys showed it to me, and it really did make me laugh.

How has everyone been? May is turning out to be a stressful. Work is stressful because I've been buried with assessments. I've also been glued to the internet about all this political stuff. I waste a ton of time trying to figure out all that's been happening. It's all so overwhelming, and I'm going to have to give myself a time-limit. It's making me crazy, cranky, and uber-distracted.

Last weekend I had a lot of fun coming up with a story idea for a Wattpad challenge, but still have to write the actual story. It's flash fiction--very, very short flash fiction--so hopefully I'll get it done this weekend. My other happy times this week have been listening to my kids practice their musical instruments and going for walks. One son is playing What A Wonderful World on his cello (among other songs, but that's my favorite), and the other is working on Ain't No Mountain High Enough (again, among other songs.) We've been exploring Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, 50's, 70's, classical and recent pop music. It's been a lot of fun.

Okay! Here's the photos. Hopefully they at least make you smile!

Do you think this is photo-shopped? If not, that's actually a scary picture.

I visit Nursing Facilities and can never find the front door. What do NF's have against marking their entrances clearly?

Not funny - just cool!
We do have a pun this week!

And a video.  The boys found it. It's from Bad Lip Reading's YouTube channel. There's all kinds of videos there, including other funny Star Wars ones.

I hope you all have an awesome weekend and next week. Now my children are out of school, I might have more relaxed evenings. That would be nice. :)

Silly Saturday Photos: Penguins, Camels and Adam Lambert

Yay for the weekend!
And Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers!

I hope you all had a wonderful week! I think mine was good. Quite honestly, it was a whirlwind and between my kids' end of school things and the state of politics, it was over before I knew it. Which is probably a good thing, but it means most of my writing was done in my head and not much on paper.

Let's see some photos... (Found on

I looked it up. It's true penguins were nicknamed "arse-feet" in the 1800's!

For some reason it reminds me of Patrick Stewart?

Last night I had a dream I was riding a camel, and forgot until I saw this picture.
It was a weird dream.

Well, I think that's it for funny photos. Despite getting distracted by watching Adam Lambert videos on YouTube, this post is still taking way longer than it should to pull together. I have scrolled through lots of funny photos and I'm ready to call it for the week.

The thing about Adam Lambert is he is creatively inspirational to me. I can listen to any song - not just the ones I have on my Through the Fairy Ring playlist - and I get that itchy-to-create feeling. I'm not sure if it's the music or his talent for entertaining that makes me want to explore my own creativity. The persona he puts out to the public is unafraid and unapologetic. His music helps me to remember to be brave and overcome the fear of creative rejection. Here are some quotes from him that I like:

"I started rejecting the proper way to sing and I started singing."

"There's not a blueprint for me to follow."

"I think the more we as artists share ourselves openly, the more someone out there may feel inspired to do the same." (Flaunt Magazine, 2016)

So, yeah! Thanks Adam Lambert, for being an artistic emotional support!

Here's one of the songs that I attribute to Arden's character arc in TTFR. It's called Runnin' and is from the album Trespassing. It's not a video, just the music.

And with that, I'll call it a week!

Do you have an artistic emotional support system? What do you find motivates you to create?

Silly Saturday Photos: Squirrel Games

Welcome to the weekend!

How was your week? Mine was crazy busy! I'm behind with paperwork at work, Boy 1 had an orchestra concert and Boy 2 had his birthday. It's all behind us now, though. On to the weekend, and editing and relaxation, right?

I found enough pictures I thought were cute that you don't have to read an actual post. I'm wondering what I should write about when I have to write a blog post. I haven't done that in so long!

Anyway, here's this week's offering of photos:

They look so determined!

They may eat my bird seed, but I'm still starting to find squirrels charming.

The way I feel by the end of the week. This is why I don't have friends.

So, that would be a no.

What applying for government assistance programs is like. You understand the direction, but it doesn't make sense.

A little science humor...

I think my favorite is the squirrel games. I laugh when I see flattened squirrels - unless their guts are beside them on the road. Then I feel sad.

I think I'm a little tired. Did I just write that?

Anyway, have an awesome weekend and try to stay sane next week!
