It's Gonna Be A Bright Sunshiny Day!

Whack A Mole!!  Remember playing that game at the state fair?  It's the one where you pay to beat the heck out of those darn critters popping out of their holes.  Easy game, right?  Certainly seems easier than tossing a ring on a fish bowl.  Or shooting hoops with a basketball slightly larger than the diameter of the rim (they failed to mention that little detail).  Yup... should be a piece of cake!  Handing over your money, with a slightly cocky smirk, you brace yourself for the bell to ring indicating "game on"!  There's the first one!  With a large, plush mallet gripped tightly in your hand, you hit the mole so that he retreats back into his hole. One down.  Oops.. there's another.. and another.. and another!  They're popping up all over and in rapid succession!  And hitting has now turned into smashing!  Your smirk has given way to a deeply furrowed brow set with a mix of determination and frustration because you haven't been able to get every one.  Another sounding bell and game over.  Try as you might, you found this game wasn't as easy as you thought it would be.

And that, dear friends, is life!  Right now I am playing my own version of Whack A Mole... trying to handle a million things at once, hoping to eliminate each one with expediency.  It's the reason why it's been eleven days since I last posted anything.  I feel bad about that.  So, I'm sending out a river of sunflowers to you.  To thank you for your patience!  To thank you for following me! To thank you for being my ray of sunshine!


  1. That is one of the best analogies for life I have ever heard.

    Hope you whack a few today!

  2. Those sunflowers are amazing, Kadee! I love those galvanized flower pails, too. Hope you get all of your "moles" taken care of:)

  3. I can see clearly now, the rain is the song (thanks for putting it in my head this morning) - love the analogy - love the sunflowers! WHACK ON, Kadee...WHACK ON! XOXO Tanya

  4. Kadee,
    Great analogy on life. It does get to be like that sometimes. Just take it one "mole" at a time!!! The sunflowers are beautiful.

  5. Sweet gal,

    You owe blogdom nothing, truly - we blog when life gives us time enough to do so.

    The REAL thing - our real and true living and breathing worlds is most important.

    So, drop the mole of guilt about blogging - thanks for the flowers and for thinking of us, and just get back when you can.

    In the meantime whack the rest of those pesky to dos, yes?

    Huge hugs.

  6. Hi Kadee,

    No need to feel even MORE stress or anxiety about not taking a walk around the bloghood, you're LIVING life - with all its ups and downs and hits and misses! Glad I took my walk today and had the chance to spot these beautiful sunflowers of yours! So pretty!


    1. Kadee, you almost always make me laugh - what a gift, along with the beautiful sunflowers! We all have those times - I have certainly had my share lately. I will just be waiting with breathless anticipation for the next post (whenever that may be - lol!!).


  8. Whack a Mole, lol. Love that analogy for the busy-ness of life!

  9. I didn't know that was what it was called! Your sunflowers won me over, Kadee! I'll wait for you. :)

  10. Hi Kadee

    Love the whack a mole analogy as well! You are a bright sunny flower to us. sending you love and prayers


  11. I feel like I'm playing that game all the time:-) Love your beautiful sunflower pictures.

  12. Life is busy and sometimes crazy. Your Sunshine Sunflowers are Smiles of Summertime. Keep whacking away dear...

  13. I love your post Kadee. Thank you for showering us with such pretty flowers. I completely understand. I took a little break from blogging also and it was just what I needed. Will be here..

  14. I am afraid the mole game will become mine soon. Love the sun flowers! Wow they are stunning! This week is such a happy/sad one. Played with Diana (Frey) yesterday & tomorrow but, Thursday we head south to say goodbye to the Art Sisters down in LA area & then heading home. What a wonderful summer we've had. I can't wait to see you somewhere.... Soon! Hugs!

  15. Hi Kadee,
