Monday – Monday

It’s Monday! It’s a bit of a melancholy Monday for me for reasons I won’t get into but there is joy in life to embrace anyway.  It’s a ‘We survived the weekend and didn’t hurt ourselves or each other’ Monday.  And it’s a I don’t have a thing to post for Monochrome Monday other than digging into the files and pulling up a past image.  This was a busy weekend for us!  Every window in the house now has curtain rods and curtains except for one and that is only because I haven’t decided what treatment to give it.

I finally got around to hanging some pictures in one room only while others are still languishing in boxes or on floors.  I’ve picked out some fabric samples and I may be daring enough to make some throw pillows for the bed and sofa.  After arguing with a certain home/hardware store (it’s not the Depot one) for almost a week about their poor customer service and online ordering system, I finally picked up the assemble it yourself bench and coat hanger set for the entry way. Then after two days and one drill bit that needed to be replaced, we got it assembled and hung up.  I told DH that sexy is a man with power tools doing work around the house 😉

We went looking for a new desktop computer for me and while testing the built in speakers on one I ended up busting a move for a few seconds with a little 4 year old girl in the middle of the store who was feeling the grove of the song I was playing.  Hint: the song I was playing came from the Best Urban Contemporary Album of the year winner at the recent Grammys.  Urban Contemporary???? Oh well…it’s got a nice beat and you can dance to it; I give it a seven.

While I am still without a desktop the laptop is still working (thankfully) but then when I tried to print out a photo order – NOTHING!  Panic struck, then frustration, then I called tech support and he kicked me out of my office until he fixed it.  Phew!  So now it’s clean up after the home improvement weekend because no matter how much I swept or vacuumed, I can still find little bits of packing material strewn about and sawdust hides very well on windowsills and baseboards.  How was your weekend?

This photo was taken a few years ago at one of my favorite local parks here, Inniswood, where in spring the area bursts into carpets of crocus and these little cuties -snowdrops.  They should be getting ready to reappear soon…I hope so because I really am awaiting their return.

    This brought a big smile! I can remember what it was like doing all you described. Course it was only two years ago we went through the same ordeals. After a short time it will be lost in the memory banks. Sounds like things are coming along quite nicely!

      I think sometimes that I should slow down so I will have stuff to do later…and then I push that aside and go at it! hahaha

      Got quite a bit accomplished so it will be calming down until the next wave of creativity 😉
