Sometimes Mondays.

"borrowing" this Monday post idea from Michelle GD - just a small bit of the inspiration she's shared with  me!

...are full of unexpected delights.

It was nearly daylight when Marc and I passed the lake this morning headed home. (full disclosure if I'd paid attention to the sunrise time, this would not have been unexpected ... but I'm kind of glad I wasn't prepared for it!)

My afternoon plans got cancelled at the last minute - and my friend Lauren was available to meet for coffee.

The latest Field Guide arrived in today's mail - and I have the perfect yarn (thank you Bonny!) to knit one of the projects.

I spent the morning and a bit of the afternoon cleaning the porch - and got to enjoy a porch view (my first since last fall) for an early evening call with my mom.

Hoping all of this is an auspicious start to the week - and that your Monday included a few unexpected delights as well! (and if it didn't, please share some of mine vicariously šŸ˜Š)

A great start to what will hopefully be a wonderful week! Which project from the Field Guide will you be knitting? Hoping my copy arrives tomorrow.

That is a wonderful sunrise on a lovely Monday! I knew you'd find the perfect project for that Breathless, and I'm glad to see your Polka Dot Scarf making itself at home on the porch. Hope the rest of your week is just as nice as your Monday!

A nice Monday indeed! I managed to get our porch cleaned up for Easter and it was great to have the family out there. Here's to lots of porch knitting in the next few weeks!

Lovely! Oh, how I'd love to sit and visit (knit and sip) with you on that inviting porch!

My Monday did start with a top down ride to the MARTA station where I managed to squeeze into a parking spot before I headed downtown. It was so pleasant doing a few hours of work from home rather than dashing out the door at 6:30!
