Happy Monday Morning! Our weekend was uneventful, if not a bit slow. We had dinner plans for Saturday night but my brother is was not feeling well. Shortly thereafter, we found our daughter was not feeling well and then the list began to grow. The nastiest virus/cold type of yuck has been spreading like crazy. It seems like everyone has it or is just getting over it. So, we ran out a bit here and there but, for the most part, enjoyed the weekend at home. Which was okay since it was (dare I say finally) winter like. Not only was it cold but it was windy! A few people claimed to have seen some snow flurries. I don’t know about all that – but it was cold. But, like I mentioned on Friday, I am totally okay with slow mornings. And sometimes those slow mornings linger throughout the day – and that works, too. Speaking of the quiet mornings we have been enjoying lately, this was my view yesterday morning – just as I was sitting down with my cup of coffee. I don’t think the sun was quite up but it was snug inside.
I’m curious, have you even left a tree up after the Christmas decor has been put away? I never have before but, for some odd reason, we left this one in the family room corner. We just were enjoying it too much – especially in the mornings. I took the ribbons and topper off so it just has lights and some pinecones…and we can think of it as a winter tree. Semantics. I will admit, I am about ready for it to return to storage but it has been nice these last couple of weeks.
For some, this is a holiday. I know the schools are closed so my friend (a teacher) and I are meeting for lunch. Tomorrow is the first day of Bible study for this new semester. Well, this new year! I am looking forward to that. So, the week is off to a good start. How is your week starting. Here’s to a week that includes an extra blessing or two. I hope you will come back on Wednesday. I will be sharing ten things that I do not do (that maybe I should!!?) Thanks for stopping by. Happy Monday:)
