Monday Morning This and That

What an awesome weekend we had.  Springlike weather that made it hard for me to contain my spring fever.  At this time of the year, once the holidays are gone, I start thinking Imbolc and making plans.  

Of course, my holidays are NOT over yet.  Still have two Christmases to go--with my goddaughter and our yearly family Christmas.  My son and goddaughter had decided that tomorrow was a good day since both are off from work, but no one consulted me first.  Tomorrow afternoon is the "Silly Sock" party at the center, and I already purchased my ticket....

...and my socks.  So tomorrow is not good for me.  Wish they'd consult me first before they made plans.  

And we still haven't gotten out to Jersey for our family Christmas.  It's just so hard to get everyone together with work schedules.  My granddaughters are both nurses and although my granddaughter who had the stroke is no longer working, my other granddaughter has to work every other weekend, my son works most weekends with an occasional day off, my grandson works weekends, etc.  You get the picture.  And this year we'd had Christmas weekend all planned out when we all started getting sick....starting with me. 

Last night we went to Olive Garden to eat.  Yummy.  Love that place, and they feed you so well.

I always get their whole wheat linguini with marinara and meatball topper.  Splurged and had some of the lemon cake, too.  A friend had recommended it, and it was oh so good.
Have a wonderful day.


  1. Those are wild 'n crazy socks alright -- have fun tomorrow!

  2. You will win with those socks. I hope it all works out with your post Christmas plans. When there are more than two people involved, it is always a problem syncing schedules.

  3. Love those socks!
    Spring is still sleeping here in our neck of the woods.
    Hope that you are feeling well
    Christmas lasts a long time for you and your family.
    It is good news to hear that your granddaughter is doing well.

    Have a lovely day ☕

  4. Those are some crazy cool socks!!
    I'm sorry to hear your Christmas plans aren't working out.
    I have a friend whose family can't all gather at Christmas, so they
    plan another "Christmas" in an odd month where everyone can get together.
    I think they do it in October. Maybe it's something that could work for y'all? Pick a month that works for all and then have Christmas.

  5. Oh YES! I just LOVE those socks too :)

    All the best Jan

  6. Those are fantastic socks! Love them!
