Monday Morning This and That

 This is the front of my building.  Greenery abounds.

Happy Monday, everyone.  I don't know about the rest of you, but this weekend went awfully fast for me, despite being a long one.  Nevertheless, I am looking forward to getting back to my regularly scheduled programming.  That won't be until Wednesday, though.  Tomorrow I have an appointment with the eye doctor.  Once again this round of doctor's appointments begins. 

On Friday I went for a hair cut.  I used to always go have my hair done by the Dominicans because rumor has it that they are the best.  But now that I have found the Chinese, I wouldn't go anywhere else.  They treat you like a queen, and us women need that sometimes.  For $20 I got a shampoo, scalp, neck, and shoulder massage, and a cut. 

Remember on Friday when I said a new recipe came into my head?  Well, I made it, and it came out so darned good and quite healthy.  It calls for Whole Wheat pasta, broccoli, spinach,  sun dried tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and a wee bit of Romano cheese.  Steam vegetables, saute chopped garlic in olive oil, and then mix with the veggies and pasta.  Couldn't be any easier.

Spent most of Saturday reading Halloween stories.  It was raining most of the morning, so I just sat around.  During the afternoon I cleaned the windows and hung new curtains in the kitchen, put a new autumn table cloth on my dining room table, and swept and mopped floors.  It feels good being back to myself again.

Took this picture while I was waiting for the bus to go to church Sunday morning.  If you enlarge, you can see the moon hovering over my building. 

Speaking of church, I totally understand that the dress code has drastically changed from my youth when church meant dressing up in your Sunday best, and I accept the jeans, hoodies, and whatever else they wear.  But, I'm sorry.  Some people need to use a little more common sense when they dress for church.  About midway through the service, a woman walked in with her hubby or her boyfriend and moved to a seat towards the front.  She was wearing a very, very short blue mini dress, (and I mean mini), black fishnet stockings, and a pair of stiletto heels.  One wrong move and her entire butt would be showing.  Not very appropriate for the setting we were in.

And with that, I'm going to sign off now.  I want to head out early to the fruit stand so I have time to iron when I get back.  Have a good one.


  1. I think I have made that dish! :) yummy. Glad you are back to your routine, and my you stay healthy and happy!

  2. I must say, that's sure mighty good service for only twenty dollars my friend. It's too bad my wife and I don't live in New York, because if we did, I'd have to ask you where that place is so that my wife and I could get our hair care done there as well.

    The weekend seemed to go really fast for me too.

    I think I'm going to have to learn how to slow down time again.

    Those are some beautiful scenes, and that dish looks delicious.

    I wish you a very peaceful week my friend,
