My Afternoon Smile

Well, it is Hubband's first day back to work after Christmas.  The kids and I are back to our routine.  Well, sort of.  The boys have not had naps in three days and there is some sugar detox going on.  But, finally, I have a chance to write again.  So, here I sit at my computer while the children watch Sesame Street.  (Don't judge me.  Television can be educational.  Just last week Samuel informed that every dinosaur poops.  I didn't teach him that.)  Where was I?  Oh yeah.  Here I sit at my computer, and I got nothin'.

Well, I have this.  Another reason to smile


It was a gift from my mother.  I love the statement it makes.  (Unfortunately my kids can't read.)  But, my favorite part is the ermine trim.  So regal.  It holds an obscene amount of coffee.  Too much coffee makes Mommy crazy.  So, I have changed my own preference for drinking tea out of a cup and saucer, and made this my afternoon tea mug. 

And while I am smiling...I logged on this morning to find that Hubband had changed the desktop photo to this.


I don't know where he got it or what he is trying to say by using it as wallpaper, but it did give me a chuckle.

Hopefully inspiration will strike today, or at the very least this week, and I will  be back with some actual writing.  Until then, I hope I have made you smile.

Or you can check these out.  They are some of my best work, in my opinion.

Halloween, One Boy's Obsession


  1. That is a great mug...if only they would listen : ) And the wallpaper is hilarious! It sounds like you both have a very good sense of humor. And that is absolutely necessary in any family. Enjoy your afternoon tea : )

  2. I need one of those mugs.

    And I need to show that wallpaper to my hubby. Going to read the suggested reading now. Thanks.
