Monday! Monday!

The funny thing that my kitchen is functional...I still am not really cooking in

I want to simply simplify my life by organizing shelves and drawers. The study is still semi filled with utensils that I used to keep out...antique pitchers filled with wooden spoons, etc...that I now want in drawers. I am asking myself why I have 18 was all we needed this week end...for eggs and quesadillas.

Hmmm...but can I part with the other 17?

We are also getting used to granite...right now we are setting things on it very gently...sort of waiting for something to crash. Plus Den came up this morning to tell me the new sink was scratched...

Really? Life is too short...I gave him a mini lecture on embracing imperfections!

Finished this...good...long...really's the kind of book that I really enjoyed but I couldn't wait to finish it. Have you ever felt that way about a book?

Reading this...finally...I read an article that said it will be this summer's hidden gem?
I will let you know...

Picking out tumbled marble later today...

What do you typically do on a Monday? I really didn't like Monday when I was teaching...we were forced to stay an extra hour for Monday is still a slow start blah kind of day for me! I am trying to get over that feeling but it's hard!


  1. Good luck marble hunting.

    I like mix matched wooden spoons and spatulas.

  2. Mondays and Wednesdays are rehearsal nights for us but tonight, tickets go on sale for the show which means I will be leaving early to stand in the rain so I can get us good seats. I really wish they'd sell their tickets online. The last time I stood in line from 10am to 6pm and I was so gravely ill. I thought I was going to die. Today, I refuse to get there before 3pm.

  3. I like Mondays. A fresh start for the week.
    Mondays for me are long run days, laundry days, tidying up days...

  4. I don't like things on my counter so most of my stuff is hidden away.

    I'm usually playing catch up on Mondays.

  5. I live vicariously through you!

  6. My Monday was doing some cleaning....and watching my two Internet soaps on my big screen TV by hooking up the laptop to the TV with an HDMI son told me how to do this.

    I thought The Engagements went on way too

  7. Glad you got your kitchen back! Hope your weekend was nice:)

  8. Hope the sorting goes well! I remember when our granite was new- we were very gentle too. Our sink was the fist thing to get scratched and stained (by a pot). :)

    Happy reading!
