Monday Daybook

I'm not sure why, but I got up this morning with this song on my mind:
"Monday Monday, so good to me,
Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be".

The day is starting off sunny, but rain is in the forecast.
With our drought conditions, I'm not going to complain about rain.

I am really tired of dealing with allergies. 
This year has been horrible and I'm tired of coughing all the time --
so are the kitties. My coughing disturbs Cassie's beauty sleep. 

I don't feel like doing anything -- including blogging!

But, as always, I am thankful for another day on Mother Earth.

There isn't much action in the kitchen.
I need to go to the grocery and replenish the pantry.
I have a yearning for baked tomatoes -- with some garlic and a little parmesan.

I'm a fashion plate today (yeah, right, sure) in my Land's End navy crop britches
and Seattle Mariners t-shirt. 
My feet are really happy in my pink and purple Eeyore socks. 

After finishing my circular scarf, I've taken out the counted cross stitch.
This is my first return to cross stitch since I had the cataracts removed.
So far, so good! 

I am reading THE SNOW EMPRESS by Laura Joh Rowland.
I love historical mysteries.
Snow Empress is the 12th book in the Sano Ichiro  series.
Sano is a samurai detective who has risen to power in the shogun's court.
As with most long running series, some books are better than others,
but I always enjoy visiting with Sano and his wife, Reiko.

I can hear Teddy meowing.
He and Cassie are running down the hall.
They sound like they are wearing combat boots on their paws! 
My kitties are definitely 3 of my favorite things.

College baseball season has started.
The Rice Owls had a three game series with the Stanford Cardinal this last weekend.
The Owls won 2.
Great way to start the season.

Time to dry my hair!

Wishing YOU well, much joy and a Happy President's Day!
(Do you have the day off? Going to do something fun?)

Hope you improve daily and happy you have the felines to keep you amused. Hugs, Deb

Your cats are very tolerant to put up with you, given your allergies and all. You must feed them good noms.

Loved this post and a catch up of what's happening your world. Allergies? I'm fed up with them as hasn't stopped...just been continuous and after a while it just brings you down doesn't it? Still, we are alive on this earth and while we might not feel like doing this or that and we are taking up something different, that's good too. Enjoy the cross stitch...I haven't done any of that in about 15 years.

Happy President's Day -- we're celebrating Family Day in the Province of Ontario. And the sun is shining. That makes me happy -- and having one of my 2 children with me always makes me happy. Happier would be both but we take what we can get, right? xoxo

Fun is visiting blogs! Hope that you go with what you really want today. Sometimes we need to ask ourselves the question and pay attention to the answer. Your kitty is so adorable. Hope that you're all feeling better soon. Seasonal allergies...ugh. (You're not allergic to cats, are you?)
