Monday Musings...

My brain is a tad bit over crowded today.
Therefore, time to do a little unloading...
Mondays are painful. No matter how I spend the weekend Monday always feel the same - kind of like I've been hit by a Mack truck. Funny how that works.
I had a brilliant epiphany over the weekend as I dug through mountains of laundry (yes, I did 11 loads & I still have one to throw in this evening). If we had fewer clothes, & sheets, & towels, & blankets, I'd have less laundry to do. I know; I have some brilliant moments, don't I?
The Kielbasa Lentil soup I made on Friday was really good. The only problem is that is was one of about 50 really good dishes brought to the tasting party. Therefore, I have huge amounts of leftovers. Anybody wanna come over for dinner? I have this really great soup to serve!
My sister, her husband, their kids, my mom, my dad, & just about everyone else I can think of doesn't have to go to work or school today. No, I'm not bitter, not at all. I'm not sure what happened during those six miles on Saturday but I've been walking around looking & feeling like an arthritic 80 year old woman ever since I got up yesterday. I'm thinking it has something to do with the fact that up until Saturday 98% of my workouts had been completed on the treadmill or elliptical. Hitting the road on Saturday upped the impact factor to my feet & ankles. Asphalt is hard stuff, people! *sniff* I hate being sore. I need to implement the RICE technique (rest, ice, compression, & elevation). Come by my house tonight for lentil soup & then sit on the couch with me with our feet up!
Mike & I watched "Prince Caspian" on Saturday night. I really wanted to watch it after I read the story & I'm so glad we did. The movie was good but I loved having the background of the original story in my mind. My little decision to read all of "The Chronicles of Narnia" this year has proved out to be a very good one!
My mind keeps running over what Pastor Jeff preached in church yesterday morning & evening (Ephesians 3 & Colossians 1). It was all about never forgetting how much Christ loves us. He loved us enough to die for us. How do I forget such an amazing thing? I was so grateful to hear him preach it with fervor. It was obvious that Pastor Jeff had really soaked up what he was saying. And I'm grateful the Lord keeps bringing it to mind so I can noodle it around a little bit more.
Has anyone else noticed that blogger is loading pics all the way over to the right side & isn't really letting you manipulate where they go? I don't really have anything in my bag of tricks to help me out with that so I just keep messing with the Html to try to get it to look a little less ridiculous...hopefully it's not looking too terrible!
I know it's only Monday but I'm already looking forward to the weekend. Is that ok?

Glad the soup turned out! You will have to downsize the recipe for further meal preparation! :) We even have a bowl leftover when I make it for the 6 of us!
