Monday Morning Blues

The sun was blazing this morning after a week of grey. Even though there was a heavy frost on the ground, we were still convinced summer warmth had arrived. As I ate breakfast in the kitchen, I heard the Philosopher cry out from the bedroom “Whoa, the sun is blinding me!” before collapsing back into the last precious moments of morning sleep.

50% of my thankfulness this morning lay mostly along those sunshine-lines. So I’ll shorten it to 5 things, so as not to bore any readers out there.

1. 2. I hit the 100 posts mark last week. Made it this far! Every week or so I consider stopping, so 100 posts is amazing to me.

3. A new work project has cropped up which has me exploring different demographic and economic metrics in a few US cities. California = way expensive.

4. I’ve enjoyed rediscovering the nap, with my in-laws leading the way. It’s not for me, I don’t think, but every once in three blue moons it’s just necessary.

5. Speaking of rediscovery, I’m enjoying yogurt a lot these days. Yogurt, raspberries and granola, honey and greek yogurt, mid-afternoon fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt snack…ah, the options are endless!

6. Ok, one more for kicks: I got a haircut last week, first salon cut since, gosh, this time last year? The scalp massage is my favorite part.

  1. The girl behind you is astounded–you look so good! (I wish I could say the same about the sleepy old coot on the sofa!)
