Random Monday Madness #1

Monday. Blech.

I don’t know how you feel about Mondays, but they’re not my favorite.  It’s not that I hate my day job or anything, but after two days free to do whatever I want, whenever I want, it’s hard to give up the freedom come Monday morning.

Coffee helps, but my Monday brain is foggy and not good for much of anything, including a stellar blog post.  So I’m starting Monday Madness.  A day to share all the random things I want to; things that don’t need their own post each, but things still worth sharing – fun pins, cool blogs, rants, raves, etc.  You know, that sort of stuff.  We’ll see if I can keep it up all year.

1. Today was a fun mail day!  I ordered the chevron print version of that “home is wherever I’m with you” sign, now I need to find a frame and a spot to put it.  I also got two books:

The Picky Palate Cookbook by Jenny Flake of the food blog Picky-Palate.com,

amazon-picky-palate-cookbook

and Food Photography for Bloggers by Matt Armendariz.

I’m not a food blogger but I do take food photos on occasion and my photo skills need some major help.  While looking a these two books I realized that Matt Armendariz did the food photography for The Picky Palate Cookbook.  I guess he knows what he’s talking about!

2. Koko went to the vet on Saturday for her first teeth cleaning.  I don’t like that they put her under for the procedure but I guess I get it.  Animals probably aren’t too keen on opening wide for plaque scraping.  I dropped her off at 7-freaking-am and didn’t pick her up until after 4pm.  She was definitely a little dazed.  She was still a little off all day Sunday and puked a couple of times (fun!) but by about 9pm she was eating again and looking a littler perkier.  Here she is in a dazed moment, no interest in toys at all:

3. Getting through Mondays are hard enough, but then trying to figure out what to make for dinner is the last thing I want to do.  I need to get into meal planning and be better organized about getting decent meals on the table.  Tonight I came up with this tasty combo:

4. I’m watching Scarface right now because I’m too lazy to get up and find the remote control that changes the channel. The funny thing though… I have three remotes next to me. None of them change the channel.

And that’s all I have for today.  This Monday apparently took it out of me, only four random things to share.

Time for bed.
