Shitty Pancakes and Bob Ross


Sunday is my best friend. It’s my only day off, and I usually spend my Sundays just chilling around the house.  
Last night, both of my kids had friends sleep over. Four teenagers and two eight year olds. My house is a disaster, but my heart is full.  
I love these kids. All of them.  

I got out of bed to make blueberry pancakes. They were horrible. Half were burnt. Half were undercooked. But at least I tried, right?  I’m no Betty Crocker.

‘These are shitty pancakes,’ My daughter’s friend told me. I probably shouldn’t have encouraged that language. But the statement was true, and I laughed so hard I had tears. Then I got some factory made frozen pancakes out and we ate them right out of the microwave.

The kids are all outside, playing in the sunshine now. I’m laying on the couch, watching “Chill with Bob Ross,” on Netflix and falling in love with his calm voice, encouraging me to create my life anyway that I want it. He says, ‘If you want a big tree, paint a big tree. If you don’t want one, don’t paint one. Let’s not make things complicated.”
I absolutely needed to hear that.  

I wish every day was Sunday.

Little Moon Talks

Deep thinking, wine drinking, lover of the moon. I'm a typical Midwestern single mother, who has been blessed with the task of raising a couple of sassy little feminists. My friends call me eccentric. I am a hippie at heart. I have a pretty boring 9-5 job. I'm about half way through massage therapy school. I started my own Astrology business this year. Astrology is my passion. And I have this blog, which functions as a release valve for all the emotions I don't have time to process. It's also a way for me to put my wicked awesome iPhone photography skills to good use. I started writing an astrology blog, but wanted an outlet for more personal topics, the little conversations I have in the middle of the night when it's just me and the moon. I am passionate about empowering women, cultivating self worth, marijuana, wine, and my lifelong quest to understanding relationships. Thank you for checking me out. I wish to remain somewhat anonymous here, but in return I promise to bleed my heart out into each and every blog I post.
