Monday, Monday, Monday, why do you like me so, that you feel the need to rush towards your weekly visits? The weekends always seem so fleeting. So many plans, so little time. But, being the weekend, Bear spent most of his time outside with daddy, so I got a chance to make some headway with my reading challenge whenever Chubba Bubba was feeding.

I managed to get most of my housework done on the weekend, so if I can motivate myself to clean the studio, I might just be able to make a start on a quilt I’ve been planning.
But. It’s Monday. Motivation is low. Kick up the backside required. Any volunteers?
