I was in some major need of some ‘little’ time the other day. So I cuddled up in my fuzzy blanky and introduced Sparks to my favorite movie. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory. The original mind you, not that I don’t enjoy the more recent Tim burton remake, but nothing compares to the original. It never fails to send me back to the days of childhood wonderment as I relive the awe as the lucky kids experience the fantastical candy land, or when Charlie and grandpa drink the fizzy lifting drinks or the Oompah lompah songs that have me bouncing and singing along. For approximately two hours I can leave the world behind with it’s grown up worries and enter a world of pure imagination. I highly reccomend this movie if you are unfortunate enough not to have seen it before.
So another week has gone by. My work schedule exploded. My personal obligations multiplied and my naughty Daddy homework suffered. I am gonna have to do a make up list to fill in some blanks or give Daddy another full week of homework when the schedule dies down again, cause the stars were not aligned for me to complete all my tasks, and when I did have a few minutes they felt rushed and awkward, more like going through the motions and Daddy deserves better. There was some brightness to be found and I jumped on it. Me and a couple of friends signed up for this big international scavenger hunt thing, so for the next week we will be running around completing acts of kindness and other creative and uplifting tasks including dancing around in tutus, interpretive dance and a whole bunch of other stuff, we are first timers but already there had been laughter, warm fuzzies and strokes of pure creative genius! Wish us luck!
