Manic Monday ~ #222
Imagine you can only keep 5 things that you have (people not included). What 5 things would you keep? ~ OK First off i can't EVEN imagine that!.. that is crazy.. you obviously have never seen my stuff...I have way too much stuff to just choose five but I will try.. five things huh.. OK lets see..
1~ I need my computer.. I'm hoping the three major parts count as one thing.. you know "COMPUTER= monitor+tower+Keyboard..".. If not then I'll take the laptop.. I know it's just one thing..
2~My biggest pot.. I hope y'all know I can cook up some mean stuff in just one pot.. but I want a big one.. not any tiny fondue sized pot for me..
3~ my biggest basket of crochet thread.. ( trying to sneak this one off as just one too.. I didn't see any reason to mention that hidden down in there is at least one doll and all my hooks and scissors..) Once the lid is on and it's hefted onto my back it is just ONE basket..
4~my hairbrush.. I have to brush this mess a few times a day.. I ain't about to comb it with a fish bone or nothing else..
5~ My backpack.. wait now don't look in there.. it's just a backpack..
~ see I know me.. I could get a lot of stuff in five things... but I know that wasn't what you asked so here I go being silly.. when what you wanted was this..
~Laptop.. brush.. Biggest pot.. Notebook of paper.. one doll..
What's the hardest thing you've ever had to learn?~ when to talk and when to listen.. I still haven't figured this one out right.. and being me.. I may never get it right..
Today is the first day of the rest of my life and I'm going to... enjoy it if it kills YOU!! .. I am going to spend time with my family and feed animals and crochet and WRITE!! .. and I am going to be grateful for all things good..

- My House-mates.. Cooper and Dave..
As days go this one was pretty good in spite of it being one of the most dreaded.. hated.. dastardly.. days known as Mondays.. I never understood that.. I always went to work on Monday refreshed and ready.. willing and able to have a good week.. by Wednesday I was bored with the routine and ready for the weekend.. Mondays now means a few extra hours with either/or Dave and Cooper.. I say that like they actually spend time doing stuff with me.. we all know they don't .. they have their own pursuits.. Dave has stuff to do in the barn and for people who need stuff welded or fixed or maybe just looked at..
Cooper has sleep to catch up on and boards to ride and games to play and friends to see about a dog.. or maybe it was a cat.. but you know what I mean.. I still like Mondays though.. Dave is home a little longer and he doesn't sleep half the day away.. we usually go to town on Monday and even if it's just to pay bills it gives me a push to leave the property.. I walk all over at least three times a day and that adds up to quiet a distance but even with the long walks I am always at home.. seven acres is quiet a long walk when you go around the edge of it thirty times a day with dogs dragging you.. sniffing and panting..
I could leave.. but I don't need to leave.. so I stay.. I do go to poetry club meetings once a month.. on MONDAY.. so see Monday has a lot going for it.. I grocery shop on Mondays with my camera in hand.. I finally took pity on the produce manager at my favorite store and explained why I was making a photo of his squash.. he even helped me look for something blue for my other blog.. Like I said all in all today was an alright day.. I am glad you took a few minutes to stop by my world today.. I hope you enjoyed your stop.. maybe you even laughed.. I welcome comments.. Have a great day!
