Happy Monday Again

Monday morning--my favorite day of the retired week.

I woke up at 5:00 this morning thinking of all I have to do this week. Anxious to get started I finally got up at 6:00.

I like Mondays because I have a whole new week to get everything done that I didn't finish last week. I get to do laundry which means clean sheets and all the clothes clean.

The only problem with waking up this early is running down by the middle of the day and still having lots to do.

This past week end was non-stop from start to finish. Looks like the rest of the week is the same. But I'm not complaining. I'm grateful that God has given me things to do and the ability to do them. I'd go crazy if I wasn't busy although some down time is good, too.

Last Friday night we attended the Holiday Stroll in Old Town. Thousands of people on the streets enjoying the festivities: street singers, lights, vendors and the huge Christmas tree lighting. The priest of the church gave the invocation and it was full of Jesus. No one told this crowd to keep quiet about their beliefs! Loved being with friends and braving the cold.

Mark Twain said that man was created last when God was tired. I disagree. God saved the best for last.


  1. Hi Great blog! I met you through another blog, 12 grandchildren, wow! We recently moved from Tucson and I loved looking at mountains everyday. It always amazed me how they never looked the same. God definitely did it right with those.

  2. Thanks for the comment. #13 grandchild is due in 2010. I see that you love stories just like I do. I'll add you to my blog list.
