"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

another one of those rainy mondays

It’s a wet and blustery cold day in Atlanta, Georgia.  I swear it has rained on the last several Mondays.  I'm beginning to expect it.  Today, the rain was falling in a steady sheet and the wind was sure to see to it that it would blow directly into your face as you walk.  So why I decided to leave the house at all is beyond me.  But I did.  And I did it more than once. 

The first thing I did was to get in a little Christmas shopping this morning.  I had more elaborate plans, but as often happens…those plans didn’t work out.  I still have a lot of shopping to do, and not a lot of time with which to do it, but I’ll get to that later. 

Once I got back from shopping, I headed out with the dog for his weekly weigh in at the vet.  He seems to enjoy his visits, and even showed off a little by rolling onto his back and exposing himself to the friendly vet techs.  He weighs 114lbs for anyone who might be keeping track. 

Several dog treats later, he was loaded into the Land Rover and we were headed back home. 

My daughter talked me into seeing Burlesque, the new movie starring Cher and Christina Aguilera.  I enjoyed it, so it was money well spent.  After that, we headed out to do a little more Christmas shopping…in the rain. 

All in all it was an ok day.  Nothing to write about, but I didn’t hate it.  I have much higher hopes for tomorrow.  I’ll keep you posted…as usual.

Until the next time…it’s a warm fire and a romantic comedy for me until it’s time for bed.
