Dreary, drizzly Monday…

But I am not complaining as it is snow showering in Chicago.  Also some of my Canadian friends have had a full fledged snow.  Oh well, brighter days are ahead.  It is 45 degrees right now with a chance of thunderstorms this afternoon.
I didn’t do much over the weekend as I was feeling a bit under the weather.  I feel better today and  I was up at 6 and have done my workout already.
I have to get out this morning and pay some bills and go to the post office.  I really don’t like going to the post office here because of where it is located.  Blame all of those years of living 3 blocks from the post office in a little bitty town and you will understand why.
I noticed yesterday that the Spirea spirea2is in full bloom in my neighborhood.  This is a picture from the net as I didn’t feel like getting out with my camera yesterday.  They are just beautiful.  I didn’t realize till I googled this that there are many different kinds of Spirea.
This is just a short post today.   Time to fix my breakfast and get moving.  I will be by to visit all of you later.

  1. Sounds. like a typical Monday morning. Most Monday's here are slow starters, sort of ease into the week. Wishing you a good day Beth.

  2. I had another sort of working weekend, still working on closets and looking good. The weather is good today, so far.
    Have a good Monday ! and week.

  3. Hi Beth,

    Like your flowers, I think these are in a garden just up the road from Amanda in white and also purple they are very pretty.

    Take Care and have a good week, no snow - no no

    Hugs - Nita

  4. Good Morning to you. Have the wash in and that's about it. Not realy energetic this morning. And I agree, NO MORE SNOW.

  5. Horrible weather here as I've said to almost everyone I've visited today...can't say I want to do it again here...ugh! I guess the bright side for sure is that the leaves and flowers haven't come out so this latest mess hopefully won't hurt anything. Have a great day my friend...we still have every reason to be thankful!

  6. Too cold to mow today. Nasty weather all around everywhere. Breakfast...eggs ;-)

  7. I have a lush full spirea as well. They are pretty! I wanted a pink blossomed one but got the white as that was all that was available. I think where I come from it was/is called Bridal's Wreath.

    EVERYone has horrible terrible yucky weather. I told Terry I am going to command that the weather stop that instantly. Particularly in WI and MT. Well, IL too. :-)
