Monday…Where Am I?

Monday was one of those scattered days.  It seemed that every time I tried to be one place I needed to be someplace else.  Guess there are just days like that.  Dazed and confused, that’s me.

We started out on a fun adventure.  My favorite nephew, Little Michael was visiting with my sister, Ele for the weekend.  We hadn’t had the chance to get together so we decided to go to breakfast on Monday.  Michael got to choose as usual.  His choice…Dunkin’ Donuts!  Trust me, no one complained about his choice.

We really like going to the local DD.  Not too many people seem to want to sit for any length of time and we can sit there as long as we like.  The coffee is good (Duh!) and I’m not in danger of buying any books (can you say Barnes & Noble!)  So Ralph, Ele, Little Michael and I piled in the car.  I could have had a breakfast that was more on Program, but I sure enjoyed this.  Simple, sometimes that’s all you need.

A cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese (next time I have to ask them to be light with the cream cheese) and gingerbread spice coffee. Great big Yum!

Uncle Ralph and Little Michael.  I love this picture!

It was lots of fun.  When we were finished, Ele and Michael talked me into going with them to a place called Five Below.  It’s a great place for kids and everything is $5 or less.  Very good.  We looked around.  Michael got a few things and I was able to get a birthday present for a party I’m going to on Sunday.  Good deal!  We then realized that the new Dollar Tree had opened in the same shopping center.  Very clean and spacious.  We always need another dollar store!

The set had a whole collection of them…a little creepy…Smarmy McSmarmalson.  We love him anyway!

When I finally got home, I got to work on NaNoWriMo.  I think I’m getting to the home stretch on this project and I’m pretty excited about it.   I was able to get in 2148 words for a total of…

I wish I had found this handy little widget sooner, but I can enjoy it now.  Still 8 days to go before the deadline, I’m happy!

While working I was forced to eat a Huge oatmeal cookie that Ralph had bought at Dunkin’ Donuts…

With my afternoon cup of tea, it was very good.

The day seemed more disjointed than it does now that I write about it.  Never the less we got through it!  I have to do some grocery shopping this morning for Thanksgiving things and it’s raining. 😦  Why is it I hate grocery shopping in the rain?  I just do.   Then we’re off to celebrate Alice’s birthday. Should be fun! 

Happy Tuesday!!

  1. That sounds like a lovely breakfast, I haven’t had a cinnamon raisin bagel in ages and I bet it was perfect with that coffee!

  2. That fake mustache is magnificent. Sounds like a great day with the nephew! And if I get a bagel out, I usually ask for cream cheese on the side and a plastic knife, then you get just the amount you want! Because yeah, some places go crazy with it.

  3. I was forced to eat a brownie yesterday, oh the woes.

  4. I was forced to eat donuts this weekend…. 🙂 Congrats on getting closer to your deadline! Hmm I don’t think I’ve ever had the gingerbread spiced coffee! sounds delightful!

  5. We keep getting coupons for a free package of stop and shop old fashioned cookies….the last pack I bought was iced oatmeal. I can get through them pretty easily!

  6. I hate shopping on rainy days also, but I do love my dunkin donuts coffee. I’m a big fan of five and below. I get the best Christmas gifts there and I don’t go broke shopping there.

  7. Your nephew is too cute, love the little salesman mustache. I can not stand shopping in the rain and I usually have one of the boys with me too. They actually like it and try to stay outside the car while I am loading it up! NOT helpful. 🙂

  8. Wow, brilliant job on the writing! And yep, I’d take that breakfast, that coffee and that cookie – and your nephew’s gorgeous 🙂
