Me On Monday - August 31st


New Tea Mug From Mayon
Hello & A Wave to Sian: http://fromhighinthesky.blogspot.ca/ 

Last Wednesday the 26th saw my BFF drive down from Midland (2 ½ hrs) to visit with me for the day (or at least a good part of the day) / we ate / tried new recipe for banana nut muffins  / she drank coffee, I drank tea / we had lunch / we went for a walk / we looked at her photo albums of a recent trip / we laughed, we giggled, we shared thoughts, memories and feelings / BLISS / she brought me a new tea mug / feeling a soul full  of bliss /  Mr Man & I made the new furnace commitment / reconciling bank accounts – balanced to the penny - My Grannie always said, remember that if you look after the pennies the pounds will look after themselves / marveling at a cat’s ability to get hours of joy from a paper bag / dealing with a situation at work of the sudden injury of one of our therapist / writing ads for hiring!! / witnessed the annual flight of the ants & seagulls gorging on said ants - amazing to see /   laundry, meal planning / Frig cleaning, how can it get so untidy & messy, food is clean! / the chill in the mornings requiring a sweater for patio sits / winding down August Happy Lists / list making prep for the Labour Day Weekend ahead – the last long weekend of the summer / staying up way too late reading; Kate Atkinson’s Started Early, Took My Dog / getting the latest issue of Canadian Scrapbooker from the library / scrapping a few pages for Summer Manifesto album / looking forward to attending a workshop later today (Monday) more efforts on finding that inspiration, that dream / excited that I am number 1 on the library waiting list for Dr Brene Brown’s latest masterpiece, Rising Strong / Oh Monday I’m in awe of you and your possibilities.

  1. I love your exhuberance! And totally get the preciousness of quality time with a good friend. Soooo important. I envy you!
    It's a holiday here and I have so far largely wasted it. So I am going to tap into some of your energy and enthusiasm, and grab what's left with both hands! Heaven knows I have enough to do!
    Enjoy your week.

    1. Oh a holiday Monday. Yes do grab it by the throat and take all it has to offer. My workshop was a bit of a bust, trying really hard to glean the kernels of info from my notes. I like that word exuberance.

  3. Thanks Karen. I know that for many Monday is the start of the week, so I do try to be positive, it is after all, all that I can control, my own attitude. I hope you have a great week.

  4. That Kate Atkinson book is a favourite of mine - don't you just love Jackson Brodie? and wait..are you telling me that not only do you have a paper scrapbook magazine left, but that you can also borrow it from the library?!

    Have a great week!

    1. Sian we actually have two paper scrapbook magazines left. Canadian Scrapbooker comes out 4 times a year (quarterly) with a few speciality issues. The other is Scrapbook & Cards Today; here's ther link because you can also read each issue on line: http://www.scrapbookandcards.com/ Cathy Z & Ali Edwards both write for this magazine and I am sure they would love to have you write for them!! Yes Jackson Brodie is divine, now who do you think would play him in the movie/special???
