No, we didn't do anything terribly exciting today.
Slept in and sipped coffee, or in the Mr.'s case tea, and took our time getting moving. Did all the laundry and ran a vacuum before leaving the house.
We went to Garden Ridge and picked up a few little things, nothing too grand. Tried to buy an ottoman but they didn't have the color we wanted. We repurposed a few household items by giving them a fresh coat of paint and brought a pretty painting for the family room wall. Kathy saved me a Hudson's menu before they sold out to Marshall Field's to remember the days when we used to lunch there; finally framed and hung it.
We went to a local coney joint for lunch. Made rice-sghetti for dinner with salad fixin's from the garden and that was pretty much the day. But it was a lovely day despite the lack of bells and whistles. I'm going to go clean the kitchen and then take a shower. Tomorrow morning we're both back to work and the regular daily stuff but that's ok.
I think I'll call this one a perfect Monday.
Small grace: Holding hands.
