Me on Monday

1. For my birthday, Butch got me a subscription to People's Royals. Okay, I hinted heavily!
I got the first issue. I think it comes quarterly. I haven't looked at it yet. I'm saving it for when I'm on a trip. 

2.Speaking of my birthday, 
Remember this gorgeous arrangement from my sisters? Well, it's still going...

After two weeks, I pulled out all the dead flowers and it still doesn't look half bad--just a little sparse.
I asked Butch to pick up some white flowers to add to it. But, he said there were no white to be had. I'll stop at another place when I'm out today. I love those white--I'm not sure what they are--they are soft and fuzzy--and look like caterpillars.

3. I asked and got, breakfast in bed. Another one of my things to make me happy!
Scrambled eggs with cheese and toast. Actually, I would have been happy with a bowl of cereal and bananas. I just didn't want to get up and make something for myself. This definitely made me happy! I stayed in bed with my computer, classical music, the fireplace and lit candles. It was a really great way to start my day. I think I spent an hour and a half just being lazy!

4. I'm not always lazy--although I'm planning on at least one day a week--thinking Saturday. Otherwise, I get on the treadmill just about every morning. 
Today, I wanted to mention these socks. Bombas. They are a little pricey, but so worth it. My feet never get hot or sweaty. And, they never smell--even though I wear the same ones for about a month! They are thick and comfortable. Well worth the $12.50. I've had these for about 4 or 5 years and they still look and feel like new.

5. Getting on the treadmill is really a no brainer since Butch made me my treadmill desk in 2014. You can check out that post here. I can't believe I've had it for 8 years now. I wish there was a mileage counter inside this thing. We have definitely gotten our moneys' worth out of it. We bought it when we moved in to this house almost 27 years ago and it's still going strong. We did have to have it repaired once. 
As the creature of habit that I am, I have a very set routine. I start with checking my email. Then, it's on to Facebook and Instagram. After that, I go to Bloglovin'--, my blog reader. That's usually enough to spend an hour like it's nothing. If I'm caught up on the blogs I follow, I'll go back to Facebook and go to my "saved" list and start watching videos and check off other things I want to read. 

The treadmill desk has made all the difference in the world to me. The only thing is that I can't really type and walk at the same time. It's not worth it as I make nothing but typos! Oh well, I can't have everything! 

Happy last day of the month---Monday!!

  1. I have never seen a treadmill desk before! What a good idea.
    I've never seen that magazine in the shops. As you can imagine there are going to be quite a few public events in the UK this year to celebrate the Queen's 70th anniversary. I just hope that all the controversy over what Andrew has or hasn't been doing in the past doesn't take the shine off of everything.
