Monday Morning Musings

I slept in a bit this morning, rolling out of bed at a leisurely 7:30am. After reading some email and blogs, while drinking coffee, I made breakfast for my husband and me. (Bacon, eggs scrambled with potatoes, tomatoes, onion, celery, broccoli, cumin, and avocado - and some bit-sized scones and muffins left over from the church reception yesterday). It was good. I love to eat my eggs with salsa, something I learned in the Southwest.

Dan and I had a number of things to take care of: phone calls to our bank, our accountant, some bills, and so on). We made lists of things we have to buy, like garbage cans and drawer dividers for my utensils. I spent a little time organizing the home office - which is currently serving as our pet room - where we feed the dogs and cats and house the litter boxes. This room is the final area that needs work, but it is also the catch-all room so I struggle with what to do with some of the stuff.

By mid-morning we were able to take our dogs for a long walk. It has been a simply beautiful day - sunny, warmish, and so many flowering trees. We enjoyed our walk, and the dogs did too!

Now, I'm doing laundry and thinking about reading for awhile, as I enjoy a cup of Earl Grey tea and dark chocolate with almonds.

Is this a day off for you? Or are you busy with work?
