It started out to be a productive Monday morning! (When I was a little girl my grandmother used to say, "how goes your Monday, goes your week.") With bread rising on the kitchen table and the sweeper plugged in, I was absolutely on task with the morning chores. Until....Philip came home for lunch (I can't sweep when I could be sharing conversation with him!)....and distant cousins, Betsy and Loren from Arizona came knocking on the door (I mean, they came all the way from Arizona!) Just as they were leaving we had a call to share the afternoon beach walk with Pat and Steve and little Lachlan (well, how could we turn that down when we thought we wouldn't get to the beach at all!) Arriving home with rain and thunder threatening, we closed the windows and sat down on the pizer as folks began arriving announcing that we were hosting an event. I love events, so we had one! (We have a new drink, Sunset on the Pizer!) I guess word was out so we shared our new drink and visited with folks who kept stopping by!
Dinner was late.
When I woke up this morning, the sweeper was right where I left it...so were the dishes (the bread did get baked, however!)
So, let's see if my Grandmother was right...so goes Monday, so goes the rest of the week.
Ooops, gotta go, someone is knocking on the door!
