On Elevating Monday

Time for the weekend report … how was yours?

Whew … what a different weekend for me. The weather change delivered a dose of the cool and windy side of fall. My wife went out-of-town for a gathering of a group of high school friends, but hey … I kept busy with time on the ballroom, some things in the house, a college football game, and hosting the blog party.

A big thank you to everyone attending my blog celebration for post #1500. Your presence and kind comments warmed my heart … and I especially appreciate knowing that some of you visited other blogs. I estimate another milestone sometime in the next two months, but it will only be noted … after all, hosting a blog party is a lot of work! But, I’m now behind on visiting others. 😦

On Rowing into the Week

What a wonderful weekend, which means we had wonderful weather, fun, and some relaxation. How was yours? Come on … tell us something!

Ours involved an evening on the ballroom floor, a neighborhood barbecue event (about 150-200 attendees), brunch with my father-in-law, and some outside work. On the downside, I spent too many hours changing our cell phone provider, (something we had to do).

Baseball’s regular season has come to the close with my Reds staying out of last place. Whew … what a disappointing season. The playoffs will start soon, but I probably won’t watch much … after all, my team isn’t playing, so I don’t care. Meanwhile, another Ryder Cup is in the books, so congratulations to the strong golfers of Team Europe.

Some of the celebrations above could be good launching pads to send you into your week, however, I chose the following musical treat to start your week with a smile. Enjoy … and have a good week!
