Is still the weekend, at least for some of us… I find it curious that Steve does not have MLK Day off but he does President’s Day…
Anyway, it was a good weekend, one with tulips for Valentine’s Day and, thanks to Sarah’s Saturday release, a new sock was started (and holy cow, look how much I knit on said sock on a size ONE needle!!) This yarn has been marinating in my stash for more than a decade, but I think it was waiting for these socks! It is perfect!
A frosty start, but we have blue skies!
Today, more sock knitting as I watch something on Netflix that my son, Sam, told me is MUST WATCH TV (which is rare for him, so I am starting today!)
I also made the most delicious pot of soup, which will be most convenient today as I binge a bit! Steve is off to spend the day at the Pittsburgh Auto Show, so I don’t have to “make a new meal” lol
I hope your Monday is full of good things! (and over quickly if you must work!) XO
Brings sunshine on slender green stems!
Our wintry blast from last week has been ushered out by warming temps and lots of rain. The robins seem most gleeful as they hop around in the back yard.
It was a quiet weekend here, and sometimes that is exactly what was needed. Curiously my week’s list is not overly full, so I added a much needed “pantry clean out” to it. Now, that does not necessarily mean it will get done – this task has been added to numerous lists and yet it remains undone…
I hope your lists are all in order! Happy Monday everyone!
I have not done one of these posts in ages, but we actually did some things worth discussing over the weekend!
Adderley’s and Spanish Tapas
We started Friday with the usual eats and a really good sip and then
we I caught up on last week’s Seven Worlds, One Planet on BBC America.
Saturday meant a trip to the Post Office so I could get my daughter’s hat on its way and, in the afternoon, we visited Spoonwood Brewing Co and tasted some of their new brews! We also took a growler home for our very quiet Super Bowl Celebration.
Grumpy Face Sherman did not see his shadow either. He wonders where are the fireworks for him!?
Sunday, as I am sure you all heard, Punxsatawny Phil did not see his shadow and neither did Sherman. Yep, we started out with not one lick of sunshine here in the ‘Burgh, BUT!! I headed off to church in the snow and gloom and when I left one short hour later, I was greeted by BLUE SKIES and, yes, SUNSHINE!! And, a day that started with a dusting of snow ended at 52˚F. Only in Pittsburgh, I am telling you, lol.
We are ready for some football!
We took the easy route with our Super Bowl eats, some Buffalo Wings and some left over Pierogi Pie (which is seriously to die for!!) and a glass or two of beer. We laughed at some of the commercials, I cried over one, and we were scratching our heads at a show all about Lego building blocks… say what? But really…how has
Bubble Butt, err YoGlutes never been a thing before now??? Also, that Half Time Show was so good!
However, those clear skies stayed for the remainder of the day and when I took Sherman out for his evening constitutional, I was greeted by the moon and lots of stars (and it was still so warm out!) It looks like we will have more sunshine today with our forecast hinting at a high of 60˚F! I don’t think Phil meant an immediate return to spring, but maybe?
A weekend that welcomed February in the best way and now I might be off to find some Pretzel Pop Tarts! How was your weekend?
January skies — a haiku
A colorless world
Grey skies from day to day, yet
birdsong hints of spring.
I hope your Monday is not colorless, but marked with moments of beauty.
…feels like a Friday! Yes, Steve has Tuesday and Wednesday off again this week.
Sometimes Monday can also feel like spring! Yes, it is a wildly windy and rainy 60°F!
Sometimes Monday means putting away Christmas!
Sometimes Monday is for debating – which camp do you fall into? (FYI, I am in the minority camp)
Sometimes Monday is for thinking about goals! I am contemplating my reading and making goals for 2020 (is anyone contemplating 20 in 2020?)
What does your Monday look like?
