Montage Monday:) A Week In A Peek

“Happiness is a matter of one’s most ordinary and everyday mode of consciousness being busy and lively and unconcerned with self.”

~Iris Murdoch


I read this quote and have no idea what it means, but it sounded very profound.

Here’s a week in a peek…

Another fun and busy week. I’m feeling especially blessed, spending time with good friends, phone calls and FaceTime with my sons and family, time with amazing artists, beautiful weather, and living life to the fullest. Life is good.

And my only rule being if when I wake in the morning I’m looking forward to the things that I have to do that day, then I’m on the right track.

Montage Monday and a Little More

You have to squeeze every creative moment and be grateful.

A week in a peek…. a fun, busy week with family and friends.

My last full day in Chicago/Elgin. My sister and I couldn’t decide what to do today. It was too chilly and damp for an all day outdoor excursion. We did rake the entire front yard this morning, and put all the huge piles of leaves by the curb just in time for the city leaf collection truck to suck them all up.

After much pondering, we decided to take a drive over to St. Charles or Geneva. But first, where to go for lunch? We drove around Elgin, but couldn’t decide. Then, she had an idea. How about the buffet at the Grand Victoria River Boat Casino? Well, someone up there was looking out for us. The buffet wasn’t open on Monday, so we went to the little restaurant across the way. The place was empty.

Uh oh! This was almost as decadent. Patty melt and fries.

Neither Jo Ann or I are big on gambling. So, we’re probably the only people in the history of the gambling riverboat that ever just came for lunch and left without putting a single penny into a slot machine. We saved a LOT of money by not gambling and throwing away our money.

After our healthy lunch, (not) we drove along the river towards St. Charles and Geneva. There were beautiful houses/mansions along the river. Nice drive.

For excitement, we stopped at a drive through car wash on the way home. Doesn’t get more exciting than that.

Feeling full and guilty, we took a nice little walk when we got home. That was my mundane Monday.

Happy mundane Monday, my friends.

Montage Monday:) A Week in a Grandma Peek

29 Oct

Child of my child, and heart of my heart

Whether together, or miles apart.

A grandmother’s love is what it implies

It’s grander each day, and just multiplies.

The warmth of her heart will never grow old

The gleam of her eye, more precious than gold.

Stars up in heaven could never outshine

This child of my child, now child of mine.

“If I tried to squeeze in one more activity in this crazy busy week, my calendar would spontaneously combust.”

My life is busy and blessed. How lucky am I? I hope you had a great week, too.
