Monday Morning This and That

Good morning.  It's Monday again, and as another week begins I look back over the week that was.  My goal this year was to make this the best Thanksgiving ever, and it was. Miss Minga was in rare form for a kitty celebrating her 23rd Thanksgiving, and she feasted on liver and white meat. (She snubs dark meat).  My sons, my hubby, and I enjoyed our time together.  We shared some laughs and memories of Thanksgiving past.  And the food turned out delicious.  

On Friday I decorated the tree and hoped to complete all the living room decorations, but about an hour after eating a salad I got so queasy I just curled up in bed and slept for a few hours.  I guess all the excitement  caught up with me. That and the fact that I ate the salad way too fast because I wanted to get done.

Every Christmas I purchase something new to add to my Christmas decorations.  This year I added a Celtic Cross Trinity Advent Candle in honor of my Celtic ancestors.  This shall become a cherished part of my Christmas tradition.

Hopefully I will be able to complete my Christmas shopping today.  I shop online now because I can no longer travel nor carry bags like I used to.  I will not use my debit card so I went out Saturday and bought a couple of gift cards.  I will use them to place my order. When you get older, it is so much easier to do it this way.  

Sunday was a gorgeous day.  Almost felt like the beginning of spring when I stepped outside.  Headed off to church and then came home and finally had a restful day.  It was the first time I've really been able to put my feet up since Tuesday what with all the shopping, cooking, cleaning, and decorating.  I didn't think I had it in me anymore.

I'm off to the old center today.  I don't know, this might be my last time going there, depending what happens today.  See, they really don't offer much anymore in the way of activities so I ONLY go to because I have made friends with a few of the clients, and I so enjoy our lunch hour together.  Our table always has so much fun.  But, lately there is an older Italian couple who arrives earlier than everyone else so they can grab seats at our table.  Last Wednesday I found a scarf tied to my chair when I arrived.  That means they had already staked their claim to MY seat.  And what is really annoying is that they aren't sitting there because they just LOVE our company.  No, they totally ignore us which, sorry to say, puts a damper on all of our fun. 

I didn't complain, though.  I just took the seat at the other end.  It worked out because our whole crew wasn't there.  There are only six chairs, and if Betty and her daughter had come, and then there was Anna and Frank, there would be no room for Gloria and I.   If that should happen, and I am to be seated elsewhere, I won't even stay for lunch.  I'll just get back on the bus and head over to the new place where one doesn't care where they sit because there are just so many activities to participate in.  

Oh well, that's about it for now.  We'll see what happens.  Right now I off to shower and grab a bite of breakfast.  Have a good one.
