Shout Outs and Obsessions


Is there someone or something that deserves a pat on the back or a slap on the wrist?

Is there anything you can’t stop thinking about, listening to, watching, eating, or drinking? Obsessions are meant to be your of-the-moment fixation.

I am currently obsessed with Viewing hilarious and sometimes strange photos from others not only provides a good laugh, but makes me feel incredibly normal! ~ Sally Slattery

“Bird watching can be very obsessive, especially when there is a fat morning dove sitting under your bird feeder waiting for other birds to come and drop it some scraps. The lovely sounds and sights of birds arriving and passing through the Door Peninsula makes me feel like spring has truly arrived – even if the snow in my yard tries to say otherwise.” ~ Blessed by Birds

“Sandals, my current obsession, are begging to be worn. Despite the snow and around freezing temperatures, my sandals have whined their way out of my closet and onto my feet. There is nothing better than not having to tie your shoes at 6+ months pregnant. While I am keeping my boots and shoes handy, my Chaco’s are now happily strapped to my feet for spring, summer and probably fall.” ~ Angela Sherman
