* It's Monday! *

Hey everyone! I've been busy with different activities and just haven't been able to finish a blog post. I started writing one for "I Wonder" and couldn't get to the end of it. I think that was this past Thursday. Then I remembered my "Nostalgic Sunday" posts and thought that would be fun to do yesterday. Well, as you can see, it's Monday evening...

Some of my recent "activities

1) I've been doing a lot around the house. Ron and I are slowly getting our remodeling done. I don't remember if I mentioned about our purchase of a double-wide mobile home, in a senior community (55+ years old). We bought it 2 years ago and began taking it apart and putting in new. We moved in about a year ago and the work continues. We got it at a really good price and knew we could fix it up to make it our own. I told Ron that if I hadn't watched that TV show, "Flip or Flop", I would never have believed we could make it beautiful! Maybe I can post some "before and after" photos later as we keep working on it.

2) I'm also very happy to announce I've been writing!! I'm working on my sequel in the fact that I've found a bunch of notes and have been trying to get them in some kind of order. I'm also working on a story for a Chicken Soup book, and plan to write something for another one that's not due for quite a while. 

3) This evening I cut up carrots, potatoes and onions and put them all in the refrigerator in storage bags. Tomorrow morning before I leave for work at 6:00 am, I'll dump them all into my crockpot which is ready to be plugged in...and of course, I have a round roast to put in with the veggies. Mmm, that sounds so yummy to me. It's the kind of food I crave in the cooler/colder weather. How about you?

  1. Tuesday here (just to mess with your mind a little).
    You have been busy.
    Spring is erupting here, but autumn is also one of my favourite seasons. Enjoy it.

    1. Hi Sue! It's always intrigued me how our seasons are opposite of each other! I hope your spring is full of beauty and warmth!

  2. A roast in the crockpot sounds divine! The aroma when you walk in the door after work will be fantastic! Back in the 80's, my grandparents retired to a lovely little 55+, mobile home community in Florida. They had a gorgeous home. And they loved living in a senior community. So glad you are writing again!

    1. Hi Patti! Yes, it sure was nice to walk in to a great dinner! That's neat about your grandparents, too. I never dreamed I'd be living in a mobile home, but I love it, too.

    1. Yes, pretty busy...especially for me! My energy level is pretty low! I'll need a long nap this weekend, if not before! BTW, the pot roast and veggies were delish! Thanks for the writing cheer, yoo!
