Monkton Mondays!

Well, Well, Well!! Whaddya know! I almost forgot today was Monkton Monday! You know how it gets when you’re just back from a short trip and trying to get back into routine ๐Ÿ˜› If you have a 5-yr-old of your own then you already know what I’m saying ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just goes to show, how quickly things slide if you lose focus. Me, faster than most because my focus at best is fuzzy from looking at a million things that interest me at once!

Well, thankfully almost and completely are two different things ๐Ÿ˜‰ And so here I am to trouble you with yet another Monkton gem ๐Ÿ™‚ This one is dedicated to all the senior citizens in my Life – there are so many!! They ย are all Ninjas in their own right albeit now more in Spirit than anything else! Which may not be such a bad thing coz these are some POWERFUL Spirits we’re talking about ๐Ÿ˜‰ And although Time has reduced some parts to crumbs – they are by no means DEFEATED!

Hip Hip Hurrah to the Senior ‘Ninja’ Brigade ๐Ÿ˜€ย

Have a Happy week ahead People ๐Ÿ˜€ Channel that inner Ninja ๐Ÿ˜‰

Monkton Mondays!

Here we go again! A quiet weekend during which I had one conversation with Mom, which as always reminded me about the loneliness that often accompanies old age. Even in the presence of well- intentionedย and loving family and friends, we are, all of us, in essence, truly alone. It’s hard for Mom, living as she has chosen to do in a large house (much too large for 3 senior citizens), with two people of dwindling speech, to find ways to amuse herself. She’s a text-book introvert too which does nothing to help her cause! And it pains me that I don’t seem to be able to help. I have solutions of course – just none that are acceptable to her!ย 

As you can see, the conversation wasn’t a very happy one, but miraculously we didn’t get into an argument ๐Ÿ˜› In any event – what I need desperately and what she does too (although she’s not going to see this post) is some good old Monkton magic to lighten the mood and perk up our spirits ๐Ÿ™‚ So here goes…The Cow of Wisdom

See?! I feel so much better after that Mooing session ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a great week ahead People, and anytime you feel overwhelmed – just find a spot and MOO ๐Ÿ˜›
