Yep – it’s Monday and all in all it’s a pretty good Monday. I got to talk out my hurt and sorrow from yesterday with the ear of a good friend this morning. One of those beautiful amazing people who listen quietly and just get it. A fresh start for a fresh week.
It’s a beautiful day today, but it’s too warm for fall. I really wish that the weather would cool off like it was last week. On the bright side WeeMan and I will be able to play outside when we get home. I can re-rake my pile of leaves from yesterday and maybe get some pictures of him stomping and kicking them every which way. One of the biggest joys of having a tree is watching the neat pile of leaves get scattered by my monkey.
Dinner tonight is a smileworthy affair also. I snagged a great deal on fresh salmon at the store on Saturday. I’ll be seasoning that up and throwing it on the grill and roasting some new potatoes. Mmmmmmm fresh salmon is a rare treat when you’re on a budget. The secret is to check the back corners of the meat department – look for the meat that is marked down b/c it has to be sold or frozen in one or two days. I very rarely pay full price for meat anymore. I just buy things from the quick sale department and throw them in the freezer if I can’t fix them right away.
I think I may try to work on catching up my scrapbooking too. I’ve got 4 picture stacks for 4 pages waiting on my table – I can see them in my head. I just need to sit my bottom down and get to work. Who knows maybe I’ll be super productive tonight – but I’m also feeling the baking itch. So I may have to bake instead.
