On a Monday Breakfast

Start-of-the-week greetings to all!

How was your weekend? Ours was filled enough that I watched little football … but that’s OK. We had two evenings of ballroom. We’ve always said that he do ballroom for fun, but performing and/or competing is not our thing – but this Saturday we did participate in a tango formation as we were one of eight couples participating in a choreographed routine to a small crowd of friends. The group did well and we enjoyed ourselves – but I wouldn’t bet on us doing solo competition or performance.

Otherwise, we had a productive weekend around the homestead as we attacked our storage area because much of the boxes there haven’t been opened since the move. This meant four piles: donations, recycle, trash, and keep … thus mission accomplished.

The Saturday post about Carl Sagan was a spontaneous idea that came to me Friday afternoon. Even though it gave me another opportunity to future The Pale Blue Dot, I appreciate the reaction readers had to the post.

This week brings Act 13 of Life: The Musical. This one will be a challenge because of the plethora of songs available – Love is the word needing to appear in all song titles – but not other forms as loving, loved, lover, etc … just love. Curtain time is Wednesday, 9:3o pm (Eastern US).

On a Chocolate Monday

After some rain, cool temps descended on Cincinnati for Mother’s Day weekend. For us, we weren’t rushing around this weekend, which included time on the ballroom floor, evening at home for a movie (Contagion) and some good wine, our last Sunday morning handbell piece before summer break, and hosting my in-laws on Sunday while watching golf’s The Players Championship.

Enough of my weekend, how was yours?

I’m going to use chocolate as a theme to start your week. First of all, our church wine group’s next event has a theme of chocolate and wine. With that in mind, here is the memorable scene from I Love Lucy involving chocolates. Have a good week.
