Daughter and I stayed up till 3:00 a.m., last night, talking!  Even though we video chat daily when she's away, often the quality of the video chat connection leaves a lot to be desired and, anyway, it's not the same as being in the same room together, is it?  So we stayed up and talked!

Of course, it meant that we both slept in this morning.  Which was fine as I have taken the week off from work to spend time with daughter.  So there was no need to wake up early.  I did some paperwork and watched a couple of TV programs during the rest of the morning.

In the afternoon, we did a bit of shopping and bought daughter a set of wheeled luggage so she could take some stuff back with her (she had been managing with only her backpack and a smaller tote bag).  Later, I watered the front garden and daughter helped with taking the trash cans to the curb for trash pick up tomorrow.

Breakfast was raisin buns and bananas.  For lunch, we had some frozen taquitos.  Dinner was rice, shrimp curry (from the freezer) and freshly cooked green beans.  Oranges from the garden for dessert.

 How was your Monday?  Did you have a good day and a good start to your week?   


  1. Enjoy the week,DD + vacation time. I miss DSs though they send a brief note most days to say all is well, Canada is still there.
    Rainy season started, 1 hr torrential in BKK. We were at the pool and all wet anyways when it started. We grabbed our gear and ran for the lanai. Those that are unfamiliar with this area dawdled and their gear got drenched. The tour bus was loading as we walked inside so those at the end of the line likewise were drenched by the time they climbed aboard. If they were going to the palace tour it would be awful. If they went to one of the shopping malls they disembark in a covered driveway.

    1. Hon, thanks; it is lovely to have her home. Hope the rains don't spoil your plans. Have a wonderful time.

  2. So happy you were able to take off the week, to enjoy your daughter being home..
    I have 2 children [daughter is a teacher , she is 42 and son is 39 and a preacher] I sure miss them.. and I remember the sitting up at night talks.. So wonderful.. I really miss them.. But, I have some sweet grandkids now.ha
    Enjoy your week.

    1. Judy, enjoy your grandchildren! I'm sure you are very special to them, too. :)
