Positively Monday

Good things happen every single day and I try very hard to stay positive. Don't get me wrong I whine and complain with the best of them, but I try and reflect on the day to find what the best thing of the day was. Even the worst day ever has something good in it.


Monday: I had a seriously lazy day and it was wonderful. It was a totally self indulgent day (with the exception of a few Mom issues)

Tuesday: Had a long phone conversation with My Beloved Sister and we were laughing so hard I snorted coffee all over the kitchen table

Wednesday: Went shopping and managed to make it out of the store before heavy rains hit, then arrived home in time to sit in my driveway for about 30 minutes waiting for the storm to pass, but got to see some incredible lightening in the valley. (Some days are harder to find positive things than others!)

Thursday: We had a lovely dinner with Mom. She eats much better and more food when she is with us, so I try and have a couple of meals each week with her. A nearby lake has food trucks and an outdoor market a couple of times a month, so we shopped the market and bought our dinner. There were no empty tables so we just brought it back to the house to eat, then took Mom back to her house.

Friday: We talked briefly about going out to eat, but I had bought corn from a vendor at the Thursday night event. TheHub and I ate corn on the cob and sliced tomatoes for dinner, then sat on the deck with a glass of wine and listened to the crickets and katydids while we talked.

Saturday: I needed a set of twin bed sheets for the trundle beds at the lake place and a comforter for Pip's bedroom at my house. I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond with coupons in hand and found one of those bed in a bag sets that was on sale, but was missing the pillow sham. Score for me! I got it for 1/2 the sale price then used my 20 percent off coupon.

Sunday: Game of Thrones returned: 'nuff said!

  1. Several days, exbf has had to sit in the car before going into the house. He gets much more rain than I. Not complaining. I have heard several people say elderly people eat more with company. I must not be elderly yet since I need no reason to eat well...lol. The coupon and discount would make me a happy camper!

    1. We have been getting boatloads of rain lately. The upside is my lawn recovered from the drought. The downside? The grass is growing so well it needs to be cut about every 5 days.

  2. Sounds like a nice week to me, well except the weather.

    1. The corn and tomatoes were perfect, so much so we had the same dinner tonight with the addition of watermelon.

  5. Nice deal on the bed in a bag set! And that dinner of corn and tomatoes sounds like pure summer to me.

    Days when I get to chat with my sisters rank as highlights of my week, for sure.

  6. I too was sitting in my driveway the other day, waiting for a torrential downpour to let up so I could go in the house. I had just got back from walking the dog down at the park. She was so good sitting in the back watching it rain. Finally, I couldn't wait anymore and just got soaked getting us both inside which was just steps away. Wow, it was just pouring!
