Good Monday morning to you!
Yawn. Stretch. Start the coffee.
Gulp the coffee.
Start the clean up after a long holiday weekend.
I can't help but be happy when I open my dishwasher and the color there greets me.
It sure makes a routine job much more cheerful.
And it makes me glad that when we remodeled the kitchen and I went to pick out the long-awaited cabinet knobs and the dishes and glassware that I chose some color.
So much of the year in Michigan is brown, colorless, gray and dull outside. The snow helps but we don't always have snow. I seem to have the need to see color in my home.
And believe me, in late March when winter doldrums seem to be unending, I'm glad I chose colors that are brilliant and bold.
I enjoy the routine of work on a day that follows a weekend or a holiday. I relive the memories from the time spent together and I enjoy the work that it takes to put things back like they are supposed to be and get the floors done and the beds made. It's a day to gather my thoughts, make my lists, and approach the week with purpose and direction. It's Monday again, and only five of them left before Christmas! Wheeee!!
