When I entered the door there was Bitty and her bubba Koko ( her brother) and belly rubs ensued, blinds drawn to let the sunny spots appear so that they could have a good roll , and I tuned into my favorite tv radio station, the Swing Kings and headed to the hallway where my mini office was. I logged into my email, clearing them out one by one. First was one from Excedren...yes the pain medication company. They were having a contest for 250k to end your headache. I had entered, praying, hoping and never passing up an chance to replace my teeth. Apparently my entry did not comply with the contest. The letter was a form letter, but it was actually rather a snarky one. I mean why not, when you are narrowing the entries just not contact the losers? Why send a snarky letter. I sighed with the thought of another door closed and clicked "delete"...and headed onto my blog, another comment from a new reader, that replaced the smile on my face and I replied, then while there created a new page that will list all the authors I read called Ruby's Book Shelf before moving on to Twitter...my happy play ground of 140 characters or less.
Once I was on Twitter, I checked mentions containing my handle there. There was one from my dear friend Ooh La Frou Frou (see her button to your left) , she was directing me to her blog...I always read it each and every Monday, it truly starts my week out in such a dreamy, and lovely way! Well it would seem this week was more so going to do that. I had won a gifty from her that would be coming from our other dear friend on Twitter, Margarita Bloom ( see her button as well to the left for the business link) and soon I would be receiving some lovely bath item sure to make it so I could spoil myself without ever leaving home. I was over the moon and doing the twirly dance!!! After saying so, and thanking them both, I headed over to my next Monday stop, The Shine Project ( see her button to the right for her charity/business/blog ) , Ashley always posts a challenge each week on Monday that we will then write about how we did on Fridays....it was all about Spring Cleaning; you will have to wait till Friday to hear all about that, but I suggest you head over there and read up on it, join in even. Let's just say I may not own much, but my wheels turning I got to work!!
After visiting my normal online haunts, it was back to Twitter for a bit of chatter, and soon after a bite to eat for lunch before my middle daughter stopped over. I am always so happy to see her and we enjoyed a nice cup of tea and snacked on the butterscotch bars from yesterday and chatted for a bit before she had to head out again. Now I am just awaiting my dear hubby to come home so we can have a nice supper before settling in for a snuggle on the couch and to tune into Dancing With The Stars.....not a bad way to start a the week, and certainly not a bad way to end a Monday.....how was yours?
