Memorial Day Monday

FOR TODAY (Monday, May 25, 2009 - Memorial Day)...

Outside my window...it is a beautiful, sunny spring day ! I can see the happy petunias in the clay pot I planted them in on my back deck.

I am thinking...about family and friends, and how much I love them.

I am thankful for...everything I have and everything I am in this moment. In this moment, it is all okay and all good.

From the kitchen...a bowl of Cheerios and one percent milk - do you know it can help you lower your cholesterol in just 6 weeks ?

I am wearing...my red nightgown, my green El Naturalista clogs and my glasses. That's the exact same thing I was wear last Monday morning when I was doing my post ! I have worn many other things in between, though - I promise ! ;)

I am creating... pages in my art journal that make me feel like a "real" artist.

I am going...to a nearby lake with David and the Chica Dog for some doggy swimming fun. Too cold for us, but perfect for a tennis ball crazy Yellow Lab !

I am reading... Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman still... just not into reading right now, but I do miss it. Maybe we can spend some of our Memorial Day Monday reading out on the back deck...

I am hoping...that the test results for someone I love turn out to be okay.

I am hearing...the dryer spin - the sweet hubby started the laundry early today.

Around the house...the dust bunnies have moved on - we sent them to the dust bunny farm where they can roll around free...really, we did. ;)

One of my favorite things...the Tzatziki (Greek cucumber/yogurt dip) that I found at the local farmer's market - yummy on everything, fresh and cheap ! Okay, on everything meat, veg or pita bread everything.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Lunch on the back deck with my friend Lois later this week - I love spring time !!!!

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...

Happy Memorial Day ! And a huge thank you to all

the men and women who give up so much to keep us safe.

Happy Memorial Day to you! A little late, but I hope you had a really wonderful day with David and Chica dog. I had to go and see what are El Naturalista and now I want some too! I really like those macabuca's that slip right on - ooooh. Yummy, tzatziki sauce is sooooo good. One of my favorite things, too. Also the Turkish version - Cacik (??) It IS good on just about everything. Is that book the book of that movie with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman? I LOVED that movie - even though it was cheesy. I mean, I didn't think it was cheesy, but it seems that I'm constantly being told that these movies I find so fun to watch are either cheesy or just outright terrible. Oh well. You know what they say...to each his own.

That's it! I'm convinced you only wear your red nightgown! ;)

Your trip to the lake sounds fab for the lab and her pets :)

Sorry to hear about the dust bunnies :( lol

Best of luck to your loved one :)

Tzatziki is great with rice too :)

I am really enjoying these MOnday posts.. something I didnt think I would... it perhaps the honesty, and the "realness".
