Monday Thoughts...

Oh I am so tired. Petesie practically had to push me out of bed this morning, and I practically cried when I realized that he (lucky man) got to stay in bed as long as he wants today. Petesie is on vacation all week (lucky man) while I am at work. Lucky man.

I blame the exhaustion on a glorious, happy and sunny weekend.

Because I'm too tired to hammer out an actual post, here are some thoughts:

a) I am so thankful for sunny days. Even though today isn't sunny. We had such amazing Seattle summer weather all last week and weekend, and I have quite the blotchy, painful and itchy sunburn to show for it. I woke up in the middle of the night to rain drops on the gutter, and I was thankful for that too. It means I don't have to water my plants tonight!

2) (you see how I did that, Petesie??) I have finally come around to what the rest of the world already seemed to know - guacamole makes me very happy. Last night I whipped up a batch of fresh guac (avocados, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, lime and salt!) and couldn't stop eating it. Then I cried when I saw my thighs, but I think it was worth it. After all, all those ingredients are part of a healthy diet, and I probably got two servings of veggies in with my dinner. :)

c) Listening to Paul Simon's Graceland is going to get me through Monday morning.

4) When I pulled out of the garage this morning I was sent off by three of the four members of our little family, all lined up at the door waving me off (okay, just Petesie was waving). Petesie, Monty and Puss-n'-Boos (that's her nickname) were all watching me leave, and it was the cutest little goodbye. Especially the fluffy little cat just standing there watching me leave. I wish I had a picture.

5) Similar to #a - Sunny days = Spending time at the lake. We BBQed, watching hot air balloons float overhead, watched osprey fish for trout, hung out with family and friends, floated twice, drank sparkling wine and had a fantastic Crystal Lake style brunch potluck/World Cup Final watching party over the course of the weekend. Weekends like that has to be what Heaven might be like, I think.

6) We made a batch of Starbucks Summer Blend yesterday and stuck it in the fridge for this morning. Even though it is overcast and cloudy today, iced coffee is a great way to start the day in the summer. Also, due to an odd number of vacation hours I have, I will be taking .95 of an hour off early this afternoon and go home to play with my family. Can't wait.

That's all for Monday morning. :)


  1. I love Graceland! Do you have diamonds on the soles of your feet?

  2. speaking on behalf of the Lacy Family (incl. Monty, Puss n' Boots, and the other cat), can I just say we were sad to see you go this morning, Sweetie... And how glad we are that you are home now!
