Rambling Monday Thoughts

Although a morning person, I have trouble marshaling my thoughts on a Monday. Here are some recent Monday morning musings:


  • My cinnamon and cumin containers are the same and those two spices are almost identical in color, someday that could be a problem when I make my morning oatmeal.
  • If you give a mouse a cookie, you deserve the rodent problem you'll have.
  • If politicians put as much time and energy into governing as they did into campaigning . . .
  • When I put together those freeze-ahead slow cooker dinners, I should have stored them standing up not laying flat. How am I going to fit that flat slab into my oval-shaped slow cooker?
  • Why didn't I go to bed earlier last night?
  • If you give a mom a cookie, she'll get fat.
  • I feel naked if I'm not wearing earrings.
  • Why is it that when you find a good recipe for dinner, you never have all the ingredients?
  • I'd better stop day dreaming and get to work.
There you have it, the wisdom of the ages.  What do you think about on a Monday morning?



  1. I liked all of these; especially if you give a mouse a cookie......

    I'm usually thinking on a Monday morning how did the weekend go by so fast?


    1. Agreed! Why do Saturday and Sunday go so fast?

  2. HA! I don't think any sage thoughts on Monday morning. Cumin in oatmeal sounds very gross. My children and I are eating cinnamon-apple oatmeal these days. Also, this mom has been eating too much cake and pie--not cookies. And it isn't even the holidays yet.

    1. I'll bet you have lots of sage thoughts, you're just too tired to remember them.

  3. I feel the same way about earrings. Love 'em. Don't feel dressed without them. Mondays are usually - ewww, back to the gym. And then laundry catch-up. Nothing profound like your list. :-)

    1. Again, I'll bet you thinks lots of sage thoughts, but gym and laundry thoughts crowd them all out.

  4. Haha - I loved all of them. But the one I relate most to today is why did I stay up so late the last two nights? I am soooooooo tired.


  5. Elizabeth...Monday is the day I think about cleaning up from the weekend since I let things go so as to enjoy the weekend. Good post for making us think about what we think about on Mondays...blessings. Thanks for stopping by my site and your wise comments.

  6. You had me chuckling out loud with the image of putting cumin on oatmeal!

  7. This just goes to show that there is often a lot of truth to things that seem kind of silly and the things that are often supposed to be so grave and important are pretty silly and pointless when all is said and done.
