Monday, Monday,can't trust that day.....

What is it about Mondays? Everything I have touched today has turned out wrong, so I am sitting here with my herbal tea having what my youngest used to call 'a piece of quiet'. I am sure she meant peace and quiet, but I kind of like her version better, it's more tangible. I had so many projects planned for the day and have managed to get absolutely nothing accomplished. We had a hail storm yesterday followed by rain (a gully washer), then the temperature dropped. It was still chilly this morning and my joints hurt, so my morning walk around the park was delayed........then the rain came again and I was stuck inside all day. Love of my life was in a lazy mood, too, so we have been sitting in front of the TV most of the day. I wanted to get my last cabinet put together so that I can put all the stuff on my table away---didn't happen. I decided to make some banana bread as a prize for all my lethargy. Remember I said my joints were hurting, especially my hands. Not sure how it happened, but the hand mixer got away from me. In addition to my hair and clothes I had globs of banana batter all over the kitchen---walls, cabinets and appliances, curtains,too. I was not happy, as I had just painted those cabinets and walls. I salvaged enough batter to make one loaf and cleaned up while it baked. I sat down to rest and noticed that Wall-E, the wonder dog had rolled in something that I hope is only mud. I popped all three dogs in the tub. None of them were happy and none of them cooperated. I can usually accomplish this task without much effort. Not today. I was soaked, the bathroom floor I had just mopped this weekend was soaked. I had to change clothes again. Is it bedtime yet? All is not lost, though, because I ran spell check and no misspellings were found! This makes me insanely happy-----gee, that is so sad.........

Thanks, Lover of Life...just throwing down what's in my head. Yes, David, but he isn't even my dog! He belongs to my grandson and is only with us until they move into a house. Check out Wall-E's blog, Letters to Gavin---it really appeals to the pre-school crowd!
