i {heart} mondays

There is something so comfortable and low maintenance about making breakfast for dinner.  It sounded good tonight… and since I hadn’t committed to a grocery store run since well before thanksgiving… I grabbed eggs and OJ and did the whole breakfast spread tonight for dinner: pancakes, bacon, cheesy scrambled eggs, hash browns and OJ. It was perfect. it’s a smell I love walking in on (bacon). So if you have to destroy the clean-house smell that I am blessed enough with on Mondays…it may as well be bacon.
Another day, and the pink forest is still not complete… getting closer. But had a very productive and happy day. I finally upgraded my adobe suite…got a bunch of prototypes for winter’s release…(squeal with delight-we have a great winter release!!)…finalized content for my march ads…cleared out my email and over 4,000 photos off my hard drive and as above mentioned-the cleaning happened. I love that. I crossed all but 5 things on my to-do list, and …it’s 11:24 and I feel some creative energy. All good.
I have to say… how much I love the technological age in which we live. For the first time, me, Emily and janet video conferenced all together after all the kids were in bed. How cool is that? I love playing with possibilities…once you understand what is possible, you can be creative with the parameters. Dang… cool.

    I love breakfast for dinner, even if we have food in the house! Not sure how you do the video conferencing thing, but it looks way cool. If U were serious at the store…I’d love to help out. LMK.

    I love breakfast for dinner too!! It’s a regular thing around here… and yes, the smell of bacon can’t be beat. Makes me remember the days when I collected scratch-n-sniff stickers… oh and I loved the pickle one too! LOL!
    And isn’t it an amazing time technologically speaking?! Since we don’t live near our parents we try to get our kids to do a video conference every once and a while with their grandparents to supplement the weekly phone calls. And just this past Thankgiving we got lost going to visit my in-laws… and once there we bought a GPS navigation. How cool! We drove around with that thing all week (sometimes to places we knew how to get to just to see if it would suggest a new way to go!). I just love it! And how cool that I can choose a sexy-Australian sounding guy to tell me the directions! So now I’m only wondering if I can find it with an Italian accent. LOL!
    Have a great Tuesday!!!

    Oooohhh, now I want to iChat with somebody to see if it works. How wonderful to have the technology do do your work and make it fit with your family life!
    Can wait to see the pink forrest. I just finished with Diamond Dusted hot pink poinsettas for my tree topper and I love it! Have fun decorating!

    Not sure where J lives from above..but somehow since I am in MO .. that the brain wave ‘breakfast for dinner’ travelled from our house to yours!!
    Of course, my DH is the champ at it – he makes great eggs and bacon – it always comes out perfect for him…not so much my luck!

    Random question but what do you do with all of your pictures before you wipe them off your hard drive? Do you store them online? Burn them to CD? I need to clear my hard drive and am not sure what the best way is to store my digital pics. Thanks!!!

    I love that Monday feeling too, Heidi. The only problem is I tend to over achieve on a Monday and then I feel like taking the rest of the week off! LOL!

    I love breakfast for dinner and the smell of bacon. Why does breakfast taste different at night?
    Good for you for getting so many things checked off your to-do list…feels good!
    Technology is wonderful! http://jolenegeorge.blogspot.com/

    Heidi, can’t WAIT to see your forest! I’m having a forest this year myself. I had one a few years ago and loved it, so this year it’s going to be bigger and better. I’ll keep checking your blog because I’m so excited to see yours soon!

    You have so much energy and fantastic ideas, I have come out of my lull and am now so excited and ready to go. Heidi you said you had crossed all but 5 items off your “to do list” – I would so love to see your to do list and spend a day with you seeing how you manage it all! I love how you and everyone who comments is so happy to share everything. LOL

    Come on Heidi. You know we all live vicariously though you!! Show us the pink forest. I’m disappointed at least a couple of times a day when I check your blog and there’s no Christmas pink. We love what you do, girl. Merry Christmas.

    I have been checking daily, almost hourly, when my students switch classes to see if I see a PINK FOREST. I know you are swamped with life and all, but your energy is contagious. My daughter came up with her own pink forest after she heard me talking about yours, she is 6…I along with many others are anxiously awaiting to see your masterpiece.
