life is like a bowl of cornflakes


Just sitting here pondering life over my bowl of cereal...

Life is like a bowl of cornflakes, it starts out all crispy and full of promise and then you add milk and it begins to get a bit soggy.  Just when you start to get a little bogged down you find a hidden bite of banana to sweeten it up just enough to see through the bowl.

Here's wishing you a day full of hidden bananas!

xo, Patty


  1. well I guess that's one way to look at it.
    I rather like soggy cereal and bananas don't mix well with milk. so make mine blueberries please.
    your post made me smile.

  2. Oh man, do I ever need to find some hidden bananas!!!!

  3. I love this post.....your analogy is perfect!

  4. Your post made me smile. I have had a weekend of hidden bananas so sweet. Sarah x

  5. Cute post. Thanks for making me smile today. And who knows, sometimes, you can even find a strawberry!


  6. We won't get paid til Wed. and we have no money for even a $1 ice cream cone at Burger King (love their ice cream cones). But on Wed. we'll have our SS (we both get our SS on 4th. Wed. of each month) and be able to buy our groceries.
    Guess you could say our cereal is soggy for a few days then we get the bananas and strawberries that are hidden. With the high cost of groceries now it's often very hard for us to stretch our money after we pay all our bills but somehow we make it thru together. We have each other and our dog and cat. We're doing pretty good I think. Just hurry the heck up Wed. lol Really enjoy your blog

  7. What an absolutely adorable analogy. Loved it. Susan

  8. Cute post..Too much milk!! Ha...good analogy

  10. Your bowl of cereal, my bowl of cherries! Hmmm...what's happening in blogland?
