Makes my Monday - so many blessings.

Playing along with Cheryl - what a great way to start the week.

I have so many things making my Monday - I have to make a list!

  • I have a freezer stacked with 35 meals, homemade by my MIL - one of the best cooks I know. Lasagne, Bobotie, fish cakes, meatballs, chicken dishes......
  • We have a new BIC in our bedroom courtesy of my FIL - the doors are still being made, but it is functional. I actually have space to properly arrange my clothes and Hunter has twice the space he had.
  • We had a great sunny and warm weekend. Cold weather on it's way, but still, it was great.
  • My little artist painted this yesterday - I think it is particularly charming. The big face is she herself, singing (hence the round mouth - no, it's not a clown I am told), with bobbles and clips in her hair. The smaller face is puppy B, apparently also singing? Her creativity really makes my day.

  • Oh yes, and what's this?

One nationwide health club membership - Hunter and I decided to spend the money and I am determined to make good use of it. Our medical insurance pay a large chunk of the money, so it is really worth it. So I did a good 20 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes on the bike yesterday.
  • And Little man L has tonsilitus again! What makes my day is that I have a script ready given by the ENT specialist as he thought he might develop it over the next few days. Today the fever and swollen glands are there. And I do not have to face a doctor again - that really makes my day!


  1. Wow that is a lot of food in the freezer, easy dinners I love that! Have a great Monday! Stopping in from MMM!

  2. So awesome about the food! YIPPEE!
    How wonderful for a working mama. Your MIL rocks!

    Makes mY Monday too :)

  3. wow, how lucky are you to have a freezer full!? that is awesome.

  4. wow! That is awesome to have a well stocked freezer - esp with sleepless, sick kiddos. I'm sure it will make it easier to take advantage of the health club too - not worrying about what to make for dinner!

    Good luck!

  5. Hugs to little man L. I hope he feels better soon! I wish I had a freezer full of such yummy foods.

  6. What a great list! What a little artist you have! And yay on starting the gym ( I gotta get my booty in gear and start exercising again!)

  7. Your recounting of blessings (even with sick ones in house) and spirit of gratitude Makes My Monday, Cat.

    Thank you for playing along!


So what's on your mind?
