A Mellow Monday!

It was a rainy Monday in North Texas and it made for great sleeping weather!
I usually have two mornings a week that I can stay in bed as long as I wish! Today was one of those days! I even took a nap this afternoon. Nothing better than sleeping with the door open to the sounds of rain!

I love our routine of sipping coffee and doing our reading together!  We are well into Killing Jesus by Bill O'Reilly and are learning things we never really knew about the culture during the time Jesus was on earth.

Maddie was due for a new set of claw covers. She is a patient little kitty!!!
Last time she had pink covers! This time I opted for purple!

While I was cleaning out a cupboard in the kitchen, I found this cobalt blue tea jug.
Why put TEA in it when I can thread a strand of white lights through the opening??

While I did Pilate's - no more fancy yoga moves for me yet - Louis Dean was out in the kitchen cooking!

I LOVE his pot roast! He makes it with a gravy that just makes me want to take a piece of bread and sop up every drop! I waited to clean the kitchen until Louis Dean had the roast simmering.
I really don't mind this kind of Damage Control!!! He made enough to serve tomorrow night at art class!

The dining room was my room of choice to clean.
I love these dishes! I bought them back in 1983 after my house burned.
I didn't complete the place settings since tomorrow is ART DAY and I will have to move everything off the table!

I still have my feather trees on the buffet. They are just so pretty!

One more clean  room under my belt!!

Is this not the cutest thing????
I think I will make these with the quads next week.
THIS week we will be finishing our fence post Bunny Rabbits!


I am such a believer in this!!!!
There is no way I want to be BORING!!!


  1. you could never be boring Linda you are too much fun! I'm ready for the rain to stop....I've been watching for animals walking two by two...I told Vernon if I see any I'm going to follow them....

  2. Boring? Never! You have had such a nice day. That pot roast looks good.

  3. Love that cute craft...I may just do it with my grands!!

  4. Cutest little butterfly! You are living the life, Linda! Does Louis Dean ever give cooking tutorials? I'd love to know how he makes this dish.

  5. Oh my-that pot roast looks amazing! I love reading your blog-you're never boring! I especially love to read about your quads sleeping over-you have such good ideas to keep them entertained! We took our three oldest grands home after church Sunday for a sleep over. It was so much fun, but we crashed after they left yesterday and slept until 9 this morning!

  6. Never would a fellow Texan be boring. Would certainly enjoy a big helping of the roast. Nothing wrong in spending a day just for yourself.

  7. Linda, Louis Dean's pot roast looks divine. You are never boring...sometimes I wonder if my posts are boring, I sure hope not. :) I love all your photos.

  8. The pot roast looks fantastic; I think both you and Louis Dean are very good cooks! Maddie is a sweetheart. Love her claw covers. Cute and useful for sure! Your dishes are very pretty. I love china, and thrifting for pretty dishes! :)

  9. Dear fun Linda...Boring is not in your vocabulary. I love life, and i know you do to. Louis Dean's pot roast looks so good. I swear I could smell it simmering. Love table and dishes. Wish I was close enough to have art night with you. I should take another class just to have the companionship with other artists.

    Sending love and hugs.

  10. you my dear are far from boring. They won't find your name under that word in the dictionary.
    That pot roast looks absolutely mouth watering good.
    That butterfly is really cute.
