Monday Mornings

Oh, Monday Mornings.

I don't think I'm one of those people who really hates Monday Mornings, but there is something about them that is slightly different.

Perhaps it's that, despite the fact that I slept in the day before, it's still hard to wake up when the alarm goes off.

Or the fact that, when I start to wake up, I start thinking about all the things that have to be done not only today, but also this week.

Yet it could be the fact that on a Monday morning, the possibilities for the week are endless. Who really knows what could happen before the end of the day, much less the end of the week?

Or how, on a Monday morning, I can sort of convince myself that I'm not behind, just yet.

And how Monday mornings bring me one step closer to summer vacation (where, though I'll still be busy, I'll find a tad more rest).

For whatever reason, I don't really mind Monday mornings..... And I'm guessing that is a good thing.

Here's a glimpse of today's Monday morning.

Let's call this abstract, okay? I wanted the colors, but the flash was just reflecting off the windshield (umm, no, I was NOT driving when I took this) and so I just turned it off, and got a blurry picture of a school bus with the sunrise colors behind it....

I'm one of those blessed people who, although it takes me a few minutes to get out of bed, once I'm up, I'm up and ready to go. I don't really need caffeine- last week I went many days without it- but I LOVE coffee.... and so I made sure to have some this morning. Here's my coffee pot.... filled with a Starbucks House Blend and Einstein's Vanilla Hazelnut. Mmmmm.

And just for some perspective, we only have one kitchen floor cabinet still in the kitchen - it's also the only one with a countertop still attached.... but it's not close enough to the outlet. The stove, however, in it's currently moved-and-unattached-thus-rendered-unusable condition is by the plug.... so we got creative to make a flat surface for the coffee pot.

And for a little more detail here's the rest of the kitchen. It's dry now. If you're wondering what the heck happened, you can read about it here and here.
That's it for me. I'm gonna take the last few minutes before class to enjoy my coffee and then I'll be ready to greet some high school students who, of course, despise Monday mornings, especially at 7:20 am.

Enjoy your day!


  1. I'm so glad your leaky pipes are fixed. I like Mondays, too. Although if it's raining I always sing The Carpenters "Rainy Days and Mondays". My oldest two used to cover their ears and roll their eyes when that happened. I guess they don't hate Mondays...just rainy Mondays.

    Beth, thank you for the sweet words in your comment. Yes, the apologies flow and I can begin again because they always forgive me. I learn from your words, too, friend. Have a great week.

  2. Yay for dry kitchens! I had a bit of a freak-out session the other day when I opened under my sink and it was wet. I thought for sure something was leaking, only to realize that the hole where I have a little soap pump thing stuck in the granite, had lost its sealer ring and water was going down there. Life, I tell you what! Beautiful sunrise, and what a lovely view to drive by every day!

  3. I'm glad the kitchen is dry now. Yikes! What an ordeal. Mondays are my put-the-house-back-together days because the weekends are crazy. We're coming and going and things are just not put back, so I'm glad for Mondays...and it's take-out-the-trash day. =p


I love comment-love! Share with me. :)
