Tuesday and things are looking up... way up

Does this ever happen to you?   Do you hear a phrase and immediately think of something totally unrelated? For example when someone says look up, way up  I immediately think of the friendly giant, my son loved that show, and it was so simple. 
So I'm sitting on the train reading, and the phrase is ...She scrapped the martyr's share of the fry up onto her plate and joined us at the table.  This was in reference to the mother of the family.  I can't tell you how many times we refered to our mother as a martyr.  She always had a come back.  Now that I'm that martyr it's not so funny.  Just shows you that as original as you think you are, there is someone saying the same thing to their mothers. 

I'm in the beginning stages of our Irish Author Read a long.  I don't know if I can drag this out to be a month.  So I'm barrelling ahead. 

It was a beautiful crisp, sunny day today, I did a little walking and a lot of laundry.  Re-organized my painting bag and I'm off to do a little piece tomorrow.  I'm so glad the weather man was wrong.  Hope he's still wrong tomorrow.

That sort of thing (where I think of something unrelated) happens to me all the time. I'm often surprised at the random topics that seem to have some strange link-up in my brain. :)

It is funny how things we say can come back to haunt us.

I'm barreling right ahead, too - it's too difficult to stop! I am stopping at each week's reading and writing up my post so my thoughts aren't contaminated by knowledge of future chapters, but no way can I drag this one out all month!

Aren't mother and martyr synomyms? :)

When my daughter would roll her eyes at what I said, I'd tell her, just wait, you will be saying the same thing!

In my experience weathermen are wrong about half the time! That's about the same fraction of time I spent being a martyr mother. I've got much better kids than I deserved.
