It was a nice peaceful weekend. There was time for chores, birthday parties, movies, quiet time, reading, writing, fur stroking, napping and other weekendy stuff. We've all been going rounds with varying illnesses over the past week, but were mostly well by the weekend. And I am glad! Last week was so long: everyone sick and grouchy, a funeral to attend, incessant rain rain rain. The rain I can handle, but give me a break already! So here's to a fresh start, a clean slate, a brand new Monday in which to start again.
