Uncertainty and the small things

What is something you feel uncertain about right now?

I'm uncertain about the future of television and our youth. I'm rarely home on Monday nights, but since it's spring break, I'm home tonight. I've just witnessed two sit coms that aired between 7 and 8 pm. I am just a little concerned that there were so many references to sex. What do children watch at this hour? I'm so glad my grandchildren weren't here, I would have been so uncomfortable. We wouldn't have watched it, and the only reason it stayed on was that the Bear was asleep and I was too lazy to get up and hunt the remote. I was actually snoozing some too.

There are other situations I'm uncertain about  right now. I'm not sure that I'll get any house cleaning done this week. Though I did get two loads of laundry done today.

The sun rises this morning as I get up to greet the day. My grandsons are spending the day with me. I'm uncertain as to what they will want to do. The light and color is so beautiful this time of day! Magical.
As they played games on the Kindle, I washed the turnips that my father grew in his garden. I'm going to freeze some of them, as I've given away all that I can, but I'm uncertain as to how well they will freeze. I've never frozen turnips before. Aren't they just lovely turnips?!

And then, as if this wasn't quite enough, I made cinnamon rolls. I've been wanting to make them ever since I saw the Pioneer Woman make them on her Food Network show. Everyone raved about them on her website! So, we made them today. My grandsons loved rolling out the dough and getting flour all over our hands, and shirts, and pants, floor, cabinets and refrigerator.

I'm uncertain as if I'll do any cooking tomorrow!
P.S. This is the take home version on the styrofoam plate for my son.


  1. There is a lot of sex and violence on television. Maybe the programmers that decide what gets televised figures us parents will simply pop a movie in for our little darlings or leave the cartoon network or sprout on 24/7. There isn't a lot to watch at night that doesn't have sex in it. That is probably why my kids watch more movies or one of the channels geared toward them instead.


    1. Yes, I was just astounded. I suppose having a DVR, taping everything that I watch, and being selective about what I watch has prevented me from seeing what was going on at the major networks. Yikes! Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Lots of sex on TV. It's a bit mind boggling how much young kids are exposed to and really does change how we need to be proactive in teaching the messages we want kids to hear at an even earlier age. I am thankful it's not yet an issue with my kids, but it will be sooner than I realize!
    Cinnamon buns looked fantastic!

    1. Yes, so scary to me that there is so much out there in front of our children. My grandchildren are usually only in my home on the weekend, and since we live on a farm, tv watching is usually not on the agenda! Thank goodness!
      Yes, the cinnamon buns are tasty!
      Thank you for sharing!
