Blue Monday

Our weather This is what our weather looked like all day, a little rain, a little cloud, a little blue sky.  Not much rain, could have used some more.

Had so much to do staring me in the face this morning and just couldn’t seem to get going.  I love this time of year when it is dark later into the morning—I come awake when dawn hits so this time of year I get to sleep in! 

We took a quick walk as it was raining then I finished unloading the motorhome—didn’t take me as long as I thought it would.  Hopefully I found everything that might freeze—many years ago when we still had a Jayco 5th wheel, Michael and Jazz had driven to Tucson by themselves while I left on a business trip.  When I got to Tucson and the rig, I kept telling Michael I smelled something rotten—looked and looked—couldn’t find anything.  I left on another business trip, same thing when I got back—there was something rotten in that rig!  Finally found a box of what used to be potatoes—oh, my—I threw the plastic box and all in the dumpster!  UGH!  So, I try now to be really, really careful about making sure anything that might freeze is out of our rig. 

Made us a quick lunch—I brought home some of the shredded beef we had cooked at the quilt show—made bar-b-que beef sandwiches, roasted potatoes and salad.  And Rollie—I opened my jar of pickles—those pickles are so good, it is like eating candy out of the jar! 

After lunch I headed to the quilting studio.  I managed to get one row completed before I just couldn’t go any more.  All morning I had thought I was getting a sore throat and after lunch my tummy was not right—so I did something uncharacteristic  for me—I went to bed in the middle of the afternoon—slept almost 3 hours and woke feeling much better.  I can’t afford to get sick, my husband needs me!

Michael made popcorn for dinner, we have a fire in the fireplace, Emmi is asleep on the ottoman by my feet—life is good.


  1. Good morning Janna...glad you had a good time at the Quilt show and that you made it home safe and sound. Hope you're feeling much probably just needed the rest. Rollie's pickles are wonderful, aren't they? :-)
    We're at the "Big Truck" rally in Hutchinson, KS until Saturday. Rollie and Gina arrived last night after a long day behind the wheel.
    Take care of you said, Michael needs you. Hugs..........Pat

  3. Janna,

    I am so glad you're enjoying my homemade pickles. I cannot promise but I'll do my best in making more when we get back to Louisiana. Anything for our special friends.

    Rollie & Gina

  4. There is nothing worse than the smell of rotten potatoes.

    Sure hope you aren't catching something!
