Meet me on Monday

1. Monday's are _________?
The day after Sunday.  When you are retired there isn't the importance attached to each day that there was while working. Monday I do try to do laundry--my two loads.

2. What is your favorite kind of milkshake?
Chocolate--I don't think there is another flavor!

3. What monthly bill do you most dislike paying? 
Electricity.  It is so outrageously high, especially in summer.

4. How many email addresses do you use on a regular basis?
I have two that I receive mail on, one for personal mail--family mail; one for general use.  How many do I use to send messages? A lot as e-mail is my main method of correspondence.

5. What color lights are on your Christmas Tree?
I usually use multi-colored lights, unless I am using a particular theme.  The above tree had a nautical theme, so I used blue and clear lights.  I made the tree topper light house with a revolving light (my brother-in-law wired the light and switch for me.)
Now this picture is for Susan's list  -- something warm and tasty

Hot cocoa with marshmallows, yum


  1. Happy Monday to you! Fun to read your post today. Like the nautical theme. :-)

  2. Good morning, Marti,
    We had our home paid for once, too....that was many years and many houses ago for us....
    I think Honey Bear has found a job so Monday's will go back to being my day again soon. I love having him home but I do like to be by myself occasionally.

  3. I am lovin' your tree! How unique! I am a serious chocoholic, so I couldn't agree with your answer for #2 more! Have a super day!

  4. A nautical tree? That's such a good idea. I've never seen or heard of one before!

  5. Pretty Tree. Cute theme. A nautical tree is new to me too. But,why not, hu???

    Gentle hugs,

    it was the season of hospitality, merriment, and open-heartedness."

  6. Doing laundry today as well, only 5 loads! Enjoy your cup of hot coco!

  7. I love being retired and I don't have to push myself to get things done!
    Chocolate there any other kind? :D
    Our electric bill is combined with the water, sewer and trash. It's always too high, imo.
    I have 3 or 4 email addresses that I use. Each for different reasons.
    And we have clear lights on our main tree. Finally got it up and decorated yesterday. It looks so pretty and I always wonder why I waited so long to put it up!
    Have a good week!

  8. A themed tree is an awesome idea! Monday is my laundry day too. I guess it's just a good day to wash clothes.

  9. yes, great minds do think alike! LOL Love the chocolate shake!! Love the tree and I was retired and Monday was great, since I am not quite old enough to be retired I went to work for the medical insurance! Hope you have a wonderful Monday!


  10. Is there any flavor besides chocolate? sandie
