Random Thoughts On A Wednesday

The new "Peanuts Movie" comes out on November 6th.  I'm not sure how the movie will be, but I had a great time turning my family into Peanuts characters on their website:  (They didn't have a goatee option for Bob, so I added that in PicMonkey.)

Tyler has suddenly become very interested in cooking, and as a result has been helping me out in the kitchen a lot more.

I love my Scrub Daddy.

Snail mail makes me happy.  I received the most amazing package with the most adorable gnome socks and a super cute gnome magnet from a wonderful and generous friend... 
She gnomes me so well!

I love puns.

I just finished reading The Bell Jar by, Sylvia Plath, and am currently reading The Alchemist by, Paulo Coelho.  I am going to the library to pick up my reserved  copy of Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic today.  Tyler is reading Wonder by, R.J. Palacio... I read it too and highly recommend it.  (Our copy had a bonus "Julian Chapter" - If you can find a copy that has the extra chapter in it, get that one... The different perspective definitely added something to the book.)

I'm always looking for book recommendations, so I would love to hear what you're reading (or have read and loved).

The countdown clock from

The boys and I had a "Back To The Future" marathon this past weekend.  And, as an amazing coincidence, the "future date" in the second movie is coming up on October 21st, 2015! 

I am currently working on a children's book, and really need to get back in the studio...

I hope you'll share some random thoughts with me!


  1. Such a cute little snail. I also changed myself to a peanut character. I saw the movie trailer it looked really nice. I might go to see it. Alchemist is a great book. I also enjoyed Coelho's "witch of Portobello".

  2. enjoyed your random thoughts today!

  3. Check out Melina Marchetta's trilogy starting with Finnikin of the Rock. My favourite book ever!

  4. If I shared my random thoughts I'd fear for the readers Kristin. Maybe I'll jot some down first like using a safety net before I unleash to the world.
    Great to hear yours and those Peanut characters are brilliant. I always love book recommendations. I'm reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

  5. Now that is truly snail mail :) A beautiful and sweet snail painting!

  6. Wonderfully random, random thoughts! Thanks for sharing all. I always love hearing what other people are reading too! I enjoyed the alchemist...
