Monday, Monday ..... So good to me!!!!

This morning I was at my desk bright an early as usual and got through a whole host of things before my friend Sam got to the office and we got a cuppa coffee.  When my colleague Delphine got into work and told me her Friday saga (she had 2 guys point guns at her in the traffic on her way home and demand her cell phone and the balance on her cell is now standing at nearly R11,000) my break-in paled in comparison although neither of these is acceptable in a reasonable world!!!!

I left the office at 3 and picked Connor up and we were at the gym just after 3h30 ... We put in an hour and I loved every single minute of it.  

When we got home I got up to date with the home e-mails; made the charms of my 2014 words that I have been wanting to do; posted my February Actions/ Intentions list on my blog, checked slips & filed ... and I was able to tick off most of the things I had on my impromptu "To Do" list.  

After dinner Richard and Connor went over to Edenvale for Connor to longboard with the guys and I got into the kitchen and baked banana bread before the bananas were unusable.  While they were in the oven I did a bit of work at my scrap table.

All in all a VERY productive evening!!!

Here are some picture to share ...
 I made a 'charm bracelet' for my car which I hung from the rearview mirror and also for my cell phone pouch which will be a daily reminder for me to live the 2 words I chose for 2014 which are ...

This was what made me decide to make banana bread tonight ... 
 And this was the end result...

While the bread was baking I got down and did something else off my "To Do" List ... I made a notebook for my friend Ingrid.  I will get it in the post tomorrow ... hope the postal strike is done!!!

Richard and Connor got home a little while ago and for once Connor came home without any injuries!!! and he had a stunning time.  Good night guys!  See you again soon.


  1. Your banana bread looks delicious. Love your little bead words.

  2. Hi Lynn, it sure looks like it was a productive day! I don't do any scrapbooking but I do art journals and there is some overlap there. Sometimes my journals are paintings and drawings but other times I love to collage and make mixed media creations so I get some of my supplies at the scrapbooking shop. Do you read any of the Stampington magazines? They are very inspiring. Where Women Create and Where Women Cook are usually on my local magazine stands but there are other great Stampington publications too.
    Thanks for commenting on my blog. I replied to you there but will visit you here too!

  3. Mmmmmmmm wish I could have tasted that banana bread!!!
