- arrives right on schedule despite a weekend of little sleep…courtesy of a returning bout of insomnia.
- comes with a longer than usual to do list…courtesy of me ignoring things to sit and spin instead for most of last week.
- shows up despite having done no blog post prep over the weekend (if only that single thing kept Monday’s from arriving, I’d make it a weekly thing! lol)
I’d like to say it was a great weekend but the weather was really horrid here in Pittsburgh. We had to have the heat on because it was so cold and damp in the house. And Mother’s Day had particularly miserable weather, but I did get some “sunny” phone calls.
If you are wondering how cold it was here this weekend, I took the iris photo on Saturday and it is still blooming this morning.
Things I did not do this weekend (or last week for that matter): laundry, kitchen floors, bathroom, thank you note writing, (or blog post writing…sigh.)
So here I am on a dreary, yet dry, Monday – list in one hand, an extra large coffee in the other…and maybe, just maybe, if I can get through that list a reward of an afternoon nap could be mine!
I hope your Monday is less full than mine and that your weekend was amazing!
See you all back here on Wednesday!
Busy Mondays need extra coffee! I e-filed my DE taxes this morning so they’re finally all done. I’d love to celebrate but I should also do laundry, the bathroom, and the kitchen floor just like you. (But first, more coffee!)
I’m still slugging coffee and it is not helping! My “to do” list includes floors, bathrooms and other boring things too. Additionally, work is busy! The weather is not helping…still damp and very chilly here. Here’s hoping your morning goes smoothly and you can get a nap in this afternoon (me too!!).
Sounds like you needed a quiet weekend and it was okay to put off the to-do list. I hope you’ve gotten enough done by now that you can get in that little nap (you might need to insist upon it even if there’s still a fair amount on the list!). It’s still cool outside, but the sun is nice, so if you can, get out for a few minutes of vitamin D!
I hope by now you’ve tackled that list and earned yourself a nap!
well ugh. and I sure hope you’ve found something to celebrate … maybe that it’s after 6pm?!
Well Monday, Monday. I hope you were able to cross off a few to-do’s and also get in a little nap. On Sunday I talked to both kids. We took a walk together. I did a little spinning and a little knitting, and a simple meal – stuffed zucchini – steamed broccoli, and some no-bake bars for dessert. I also read a little more about Emily Dickinson. It was nice day.
I hope you managed your Monday smoothly, Kat. I am SO SICK OF THIS CRAP WEATHER. Ugh. It’s been so cold and so dreary for so long now, I can’t bear it. At least the sun is shining again — but it’s so dang cold. My redbud is still blooming – for weeks now. Everything is just on hold. (Okay. Enough complaining.) I hope your week is off to a good start, and that sleep has returned.
We are with you, Kat! It ‘slushed’ here last night, which is at least better than snow. But sun returns tomorrow.
I’ve had those catch-up stretches, too–compliments of NOT doing ‘A’ because I really wanted to do ‘B’ instead. It’d be lovely if we could put everything else on pause once in a while, so we could fully indulge! (I hope it was worth it anyway.) (Floors. My least favorite chore.)
That iris is incredible!
I’m sorry that you felt so behind on Monday, yet I’m glad that you got to do so much spinning last week! I hope you took that nap regardless of how far you got with your list 🙂
