Monday, Monday

Thanks for stopping by and leaving kind words (Mouse, Jodi & Vickie). You guys are too good to me! Speaking of stopping by, does anyone know how to get Yahoo to give you RSS Feeds? I keep trying to get automatic updates on your blogs, but Yahoo is all kinds of whacked. Advice is appreciated :)

I actually got up at 7:00am (okay, 7:11am) and went for a walk in that lovely park I gave you all a picture of. It was a lovely 70 degrees. There were enough people on the path - running, walking their dogs, greeting the day with an cigarette ;) - that I felt totally comfortable. I didn't really do it for the exercise as much for the peace and quiet. Tomorrow I am going to take the busier path near the Hudson. It looks a little like this picture I've included. Actually, if you want to know what the exceptionally clean version of my neighborhood looks like, watch the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan movie "You've Got Mail". Yep, that's pretty much it. In fact, the ending scene of that movie was shot at the garden I posted a couple days ago.

Does anyone know the song "Monday, Monday" by The Mammas and the Pappas? Well, they have to be one of my favorite groups. Back before VH1 turned totally crazy (but it still has its moments), "Behind the Music" was a reputable show. That's how I learned about the group. I went out and bought their greatest hits - can you believe I bought a cassette? :) That shows you how much of a techno-phobe I have been. (I didn't get a cell phone until the summer of 2005!) Anyway, it is a great song, you should listen to it sometime. It makes me smile.

I'll be back again soon! Take care,

i'm not sure about yahoo - i use google reader to catch-up on all my blogs... you can enter as many subscriptions as you like and it will highlight which ones have been updated - saves a LOT of time! :o)

70 degree wonderful is that??? Here in good ole East Texas we are breaking records at 106 degrees and at 7am it is already hitting 85-90 degrees!

I do not use the readers - because I like to comment while I am there and not have to remember which ones I wanted to go back to (which I think is what you have to do with the readers) but I am sure Jodi is right that it saves lots of time.

It is 85 today in Northern Indiana and that feels very cool - has been in the high 90's with lots of humidity.

Your pictures are lovely!

Love the Mammas and the pappas too. I think we have the greatest hits around here too.

Yay! You are back! I missed reading your blog sooooo much! And now that I'm gearing up to go back to WW since the little one has arrived I'm sure to feel motivated by you once again! Yahoo!
