It was cold Monday morning and all I really wanted to do was stay in my nice warm bed. But, I dragged my sorry ass into work, anyway.

It did eventually warm up into the 50’s, but it stayed cloudy and overcast all day. Gloomy.

I went to the Newburgh Grill. For some unexplainable reason, I ordered the hot turkey sandwich. I wanted something substantial, and it was. I thought it would be open faced, but nope. It was a big turkey sandwich, with a scoop of mashed potatoes. Both were smothered in turkey gravy and there was a side of mixed vegetables. I finished the sandwich and about half the potatoes and veg.

The afternoon passed slowly, but I was finally headed home.

When I got there, I left the truck outside while I rearranged the garage. I don’t feel comfortable leaving the truck outside. I’ll have to when it get to painting the doors, but we’re not close to that yet. So, I pulled the truck in and closed it up for the night.

I just did the things I should have gotten done over the weekend. I washed a load of clothes, got the trash ready for Tuesday’s pickup, cleaned up the kitchen and the toilets, etc., etc., etc.

I scrounged around for something to eat. It was getting late (Red Wings playoff came on at 7:00 p.m.) so I settled for some Spam. Hey, I like Spam! I fried up three slices and ate them with ketchup and a piece of buttered bread.

The hockey game was exciting – very physical and quick. We ended up losing (5-2) but I decided it was well worth watching. Unfortunately, that means we have to win on Wednesday or we are out of the playoffs.

I read a bit after the game and then went to bed at 11:00 p.m.


  1. Glad you had an easier night! Go Red Wings.

  2. I don't know that I've ever had spam but I wouldn't have thought to pair it with ketchup. Is that common?

  3. I dunno. That's just how I ate it as a` kid.
