I know today is Tuesday but pretend with me for a minute that it is Monday which is when I started writing this post so that when I say yesterday you know I am talking about Sunday. I would have posted this Monday but my computer threw a little temper tantrum.....not the dreaded blue screen, but a lighter blue screen with diagonal darker blue lines with little white lines on them popped up and wouldn't go away. Yeah, really. I don't know what it was or where it came from, but it seems to be sorted for the time being.
Yesterday was a good day. I got to start the day by having breakfast with my daughters. Even though we see each other often and talk on the phone most days it is rare for just the three of us to have a time to just sit and talk without lots of interruptions so it was a special time for me to catch up with them. We said we should do it more often but it can be hard to plan with all the activities their kids are involved in.
I'm not sure they will love this early morning picture but they look great to me.
After breakfast I came home to meet an electrician (yes, he came on Sunday) who was going to do all the wiring, etc. to install a new TV above our fireplace. Doc had been very resistant to a bigger TV until he saw a couple of football games at other people's houses on big screens and then he couldn't get one fast enough. While the TV installation was going on I got to have a tea party with my 5 year old granddaughter, Anna, and some Little Ponies.
With some help from my son who has been sort of our project manager for the whole TV thing (it would have taken me forever to figure out the right wall mount, cables, connections, etc.) the TV was up and running in time for us to watch the Broncos play the Chargers. The Broncos victory yesterday has football fever at a high pitch around here.
I ended the day with the new episode of Downton Abbey. It was good but I am not sure that I am going to like the way the storylines are going for some of the characters this season. My real guilty pleasure lately has been watching all six seasons of Doc Martin. I'm not sure what it is about Doc Martin that has sucked me in but I am addicted and can't wait for a seventh season.
Okay, it can be Tuesday again now. I haven't really done much today except for getting my teeth cleaned.
Oh, and all the paperwork for our 2013 tax preparation came in the mail today from our accountant ...ugh! I may have to go watch a little Doc Martin just to improve my frame of mind.
