::inspiring Mondays::

Pink flowers in the sky 

This Monday begins with an alert of snow for the shire. As LMJ eats her warm porridge, the weather people talk of the big freeze of 2012 and how it may still happen this winter. Snow is lovely and pretty... in the right places; the shire is not the right place. The whole county comes to a halt, really! So LMJ makes an agreement with the weather gods; as long as Mr Joey can land in the country and make his way to Oxford, I shall not complain. I'll zip my wee mouth and smile in the face of chaos.

As I tell Mr Joey of the imminent snow, I discover my Brazilian has never seen it and wouldn't mind at all to change that. Maybe snow could fall after his arrival then, I think to myself, as if any of these things were within LMJ's little grasp. What is within my grasp though, is the scarf and hat I'm knitting Mr Joey so he can at least be almost warm when he arrives straight from the Brazilian summer to the UK winter.

:: eating breakfast while watching the news. I like it.
:: friends. mine are the best!
:: watching episode after episode of the Big Bang Theory whilst drinking a hot beverage. hahahahaha!
:: running. it's good.
:: the smell of coffee.
:: soup! LMJ loves soup!
:: curry! yay for curry!
:: later sunsets and earlier sunrises. we're leaving winter behind!

How's your Monday going? Are you all ready for February? :)
