Monday Morning Flowers


Good Monday Morning!

How was your weekend, my darlings?

Are you ready for the week ahead?





It's the first week of summer vacation for me.

Yahoo!

My big plan? Read!

I've got the books lined up and ready to go.

Wild, right?


There is a great deal of difference between an eager man who wants to read a book and a tired man who wants a book to read.

~G.K. Chesterton

Hope you have a great day!

Gorgeous flowers, Betty! May your day be full of rest and books with good plots that keep you entertained. Umm...you are reading fiction, right? Or are you a non-fiction summer reader? Inquiring minds want to know! ;)

Happy Monday! :o)

I used to work in the school system, too, and there was nothing more exciting than that first day of summer vacation! It didn't matter that I wasn't a kid anymore!

Bring on the books! Ahh!

I am sincerely jealous. I would kill for some time off and a stack of books. The last time that happened was years ago when I had a hysterectomy. It was 4 weeks of reading!!! :)

Well, enjoy it, pally!! I'll bet it is glorious!
