Monday Mondaaaaaay.....

Hi all you happy people! 
I hope you are having a fabulous and productive week so far. 
Monday is almost over so that is a great start! :)

I trust that you had a great holiday celebrating our country's independence.

We actually had 4 days of relaxation while we stayed in town and stayed cool. 
Went to the movies... saw Man of Steel. It was a little long but good. 
I must say... Superman is very handsome!

I finished one project and started another.

Oh... watched all of Season 1 (for the 3rd time) and got a good start on Season 2. 
I'm getting so good that I can recite lines now. 
Love some of the quotes!

Started this... (ummmm very hard to put down)

Also ordered this... 
We should be able to have breakfast on the patio next Saturday.
That is if we get up at 5:00a.m.  It should only be in the 90's then. 

 We had a wonderful Fresh-Cut Friday!
Thanks to everyone for joining in.
I thought the posts were amazing! 

Our next get-together will be August 2nd. 
The Flower of the Month of August... Gladiolas or Poppies. 
But like I always say.... that isn't the rule just the inspiration.

Stay cool!
Have an ice cream sandwich.

What a nice post! Sounds like you are busy with your crocheting, reading and getting out to the movies. Aren't movies getting longer and longer? I can't sit still that long! :)

Your down time was perfectly spent in my opinion!

We saw a few movies over the weekend: Man of Steel (hubba hubba is RIGHT) also World War Z and Oblivion.

They were all very good.

Downton Abbey - I don't even know how many times I have watched that now, haha. Too many hubs would say.

I watched it a lot back in Feb when I was recovering from surgery and one 4 weeks bedrest. : - ) Quoting is the fun part - but the best lines undoubtedly are Maggie Smith's!!

It sounds like your holiday was lovely :) I will have to look into the book - sounds very interesting.

And thanks for the recommendation to have an ice cream sandwich - I may just do that :)

An ice cream sandwich sounds lovely!

LOVE the pretty table and chairs....very nice!

I haven't been to a movie in a very long time. I want to see Despicable Me 2 because I loved the first one!

Sounds all marvelously relaxing.

You are making so many gorgeous things with your crocheting. It all looks fabulous. I havn't been to a movie in ages, I need to get with the program.

Thanks for the gracious comment about my bath. I agree, removing the medecine cabinet made a huge difference. Thanks for looking for a mirror for me, I have been looking too, still nothing, so I just painted the one I had. Ok, but not really special. Hopefully we can all get together soon. Hugs, Marty

Hugs to you!

Love your patio set you ordered, Liz! I've never seen season 1 of Downton Abbey, only seasons 2 and 3. Stay cool!
