Good Monday Morning MyLot

Well hello everyone, My good it is a gloomy Monday here, cold and rainy. It's 50 degrees. I hope everyone had a productive or at least restful weekend. I went to Irene's for breakfast Saturday, it was stuffed crepes with strawberries day and I stay through 4 ages of Scabble and lunch. That was about all I did outside the house. I watched church Sunday morning, made a very nice lunch with Angus sirloin tips, friend mushroom and roasted baby potatoes. I wrote a little, played games on my phone and binge-watched Sister Wives. I did some Christmas shopping on QVC. They had free shipping and Rakuten was offering a 10% rebate on QVC so it was worthwhile. Today I boiled eggs for breakfast and made sausage. I have swim exercise this afternoon. Tomorrow I will teach Jack. I finished putting away the summer clothes Randall the laundry I did last week. The new comforters I ordered arrived and they are as lovely as I thought they would be. I do love Laura Ashley.

Sounds like a lovely day. I need to go through my clothes Put some away, see what I have for winter and get rid of some. I lost weight 2 years ago. I got rid of some bigger clothes. I now have a very disorganized closet of various things that go with nothing Keep putting off dealing with it until I lose the rest of the weight. But that is not happening

lol Yes I have decided that the things I don't wear or don't fit can go and if I do lose more I will buy new clothes.

@BelleStarr Good plan. I need to go through carefully and see what I need to buy so that I can wear the various things that do fit. It is a mess in there. I have baggy clothes, tight clothes and only a few items just right.

@LadyDuck That is pretty typical for this time of year I am sure. I am not looking forward to the snow that is predicted for this Friday.

You've been a busy little bee! I'm glad you liked the comforters. All we did yesterday was get our flu shots and go to the bank.

It was so good, I did the potatoes in the air fryer on roast and then air fired the mushrooms. I finished the mushrooms in the steak pan to give them the flavor, it was excellent.

By Belle Starr (Iz) @BelleStarr Sounds like you had a nice time out and your lunch sounds good. I think I saw Sister Wives but cannot remember. If did it was quite some time ago. I am so glad your new comforters arrived and you are happy with them. Did it take long for them to get to you?

I love steak tips with mushrooms, they are delicious. We had our son and daughter-in-law in yesterday for a steak barbeque. With the time change this upcoming weekend, it may be our last evening barbeque until we spring forward.

@BelleStarr It was a bittersweet day yesterday. I missed the kids, and was so happy to have them here. A couple of hours before they arrived we received the sad news that an uncle of mine passed away. It affected me stronger then I thought that it would, but I was close with his kids. Our son told me that he, my hubby and my Dad never liked that uncle. Talking like that the day that he passed is not respectful and bothers me still today. Some thing should be left unsaid.

@Juliaacv I am giving you a hug, I am sure it was not meant as disrespect but these days everyone wants to say everything and somethings I agree are best unsaid. You only need to remember how much this uncle meant to you and cherish that.
