Hi and happy 1st Monday of February! I just realized how long it’s been since I have posted a blog. Since last Wednesday. With a snow day, a day late of school, skipping a day of school for a quick weekend trip, and a busy Sunday, I have gotten behind. So, today, here are my February 3 Monday Musings.
We enjoyed the snow day as you saw from all of the pictures I posted. Then on Thursday, Ian’s school started 2 hours late. They got there almost at lunch time and then had the afternoon. Despite the short day, he had a good time.
On Friday, we kept him out of school as we had to make a quick trip to see family over the weekend. We were supposed to be going to a birthday party but that had to be rescheduled. It was fun but a crazy fast turnaround.
On Saturday, we walked around downtown Hendersonville, NC. We went to our favorite toy store, a few bookstores, a bike shop, a few other shops, and a bakery. We had a great time and enjoyed being together. Ian got a new Lego set and was thrilled. Needless to say, he is very excited about the new Lego Movie, which opens this Friday.
On Saturday night, we had a yummy steak dinner with veggies, salad, and mac ‘n cheese and wine — White Zinfandel. DELICIOUS!! This photo is from October when we were in downtown Hendersonville for a car show. It was a great one and a lot of fun.
Sunday, we came back home in the morning, had lunch with my parents, then went to the library, the grocery store, and then finally back home again to relax. Watching the Super Bowl wasn’t so relaxing since my team lost. Oh well. I enjoyed Bruno Mars in the halftime show and some of the commercials. Not the greatest but we had fun anyway.
When it was time for Downton Abbey, we switched over to that. As always, that is a great show. I enjoy all of the characters and storylines. After that was Sherlock. This episode was good but very odd and a bit shocking and creepy in places. Since I watched the whole thing, I am now tired. Hopefully I can get some rest later today.
This morning Ian got up pretty well for school. He was excited and ready to go back. For that I am truly thankful. After school, he will be ready to play with his new Lego set again, we’ll have dinner, a bath, and early time to bed. We’ll be sure to read a book or two before bedtime as well. Ian loves to do that.
Today, I am thankful for:
- Watching our son spending hours building a new Lego set
- Smelling and then tasting treats from our favorite bakery
- Savoring a homemade steak dinner with a glass of my favorite wine
- Buying a used book on a fascinating topic
- Checking out books and videos from the library
- Deciding the meals for the week and being able to buy the food for them
- Spending time with my family
May you have a wonderful and blessed Monday! Thanks for reading my Monday Musings! Do you have any to share? Please do.
