Dear Monday v.6.4.12

Linking up with Megan to start the week out right!

Dear Monday, I definitely was not prepared to greet you today. We saw Daughtry in concert last night in Seattle, and didn't get home until 12:30. Either I'm getting too old for late nights out, or I'm just out of practice.

Dear Seattle, Finally saw the huge ferris wheel under construction on the Seattle waterfront. Not sure I'll ever go on this ride, though. If the height itself isn't scary enough, imagine the ride out on the end of a pier, almost over the water, on a windy day. Nope, not my kind of fun!

Dear Wally, It's been fun (for me, at least) watching you prep the house for painting. I really get a kick out of listening to you sing along to your iPod. With a playlist that includes music from Led Zeppelin to Abba to the Dixie Chicks and just about everything in between, I hope the neighbors are enjoying the loud music, too!

Dear June, I've said it before and I'll say it again. Where in the heck is our warm weather?!?! Don't get me wrong, I will also complain if we hit 80 degrees. But I'm tired of waiting for 70 degrees!

Dear Good Friends, Thanks for all the recent lunch dates! I appreciate you all making the effort to keep in touch with this retiree. I know it's not always easy since some of you are still working, but good friends are hard to find so let's hang on!

Hope your week is going well!



  1. lunch dates with friends are the best! i love my sweet friends, and i love getting to spend time with them, even if it's just a quick lunch!

  2. Hey! You beat your daughter to Dear Monday -- a first! Hope you're using your iPhone video app to record a bit of Wally's warbling for posterity.

  3. seattle sounds so cool! i really want to visit some day :)

    nice blog!
