I've Been Thinking...

I have been furiously working on a wholesale order of cotton facial rounds.  Which, except for counting stitches on the initial round, is pretty mindless busy work.  Which leaves plenty of room for the ol brain to go wandering.  That may or may not be a good thing.  Let's take a look at a few of my random thoughts...

Always Remember:
I just read a "fun fact" that sometimes elephants only sleep two hours a day.  Causing me to think that I might, in fact, be an elephant.

The Olympics
I enjoyed the Olympics just as much as anyone.   Whole i have my favorites - swimming, diving, gymnastics (anyone else get teary when the womens team won gold?), I watch a wide variety.  Basketball, cycling, track and field, even some taekwondo.

As I pondered the tiny powerhouse that is Simone Biles, whether those Chinese gymnasts could possibly really be over 16 years old, the speed of Usain Bolt, whether the North Korean athletes who didn't win are afraid to go home (Did y'all see that poor girl after the vault competition? She looked miserable! Although, come to think of it, so did her male counterpart who took gold), and what in the world goes on in Ryan Lochte's head - I  also found myself wondering why we don't pay more attention to the "athlon" events.  I mean, these are athletes that have to master several sports in order to win their event - not just one.  That's pretty impressive!!

Wasted Food:
I found this picture on Pinterest the other day:


My first thought was that its a pretty clever idea.  My second thought was how that's a whole lot of wasted pumpkin pie delciousness!   And then I might have spend too long wondering if it is acceptable to eat all the pie parts leftover after you cut out all those circles.  (I did)

What have you been thinking about recently?
