Rainy days and Mondays...

I know that's a song or something...does it continue on to say, always get me down? I think that's it, but I'm not so sure. At any rate...I have both all in one day! YAY! Rain! Hopefully, we will keep our storm door open and have this not be the end all to our rain for the season. We need green! And I'm not down, if that was the song says, rainy days and Mondays are cool in my book. I don't have to go anywhere if I don't want, I did get my groceries this morning before the rain and wind kicked in, so I'm all good.
The laundry is done, except for putting it away, I just put a lasagna in the oven, oven's not on yet, I will turn it on around 6-ish and then make a salad and garlic bread to go with the lasagna. I may be the only one here for dinner. OD is at work, MD is out helping her friend find an apartment, heaven only knows when she will be home. YD is still out of town, due back the 20th...I hope!
I got all the dishes done from making dinner, so I thought I'd sit with a cup of tea and relax, guilt free. YAY!
I had a nice surprise on Halloween day at work. I ws called downstairs because there was a gentlman there to see me. Of course, I am always wary when they say gentleman instead of customer. This means there is something personal or outside business going on. I don't like surprises, especially at work. I tried getting some information from the person who called me, but apparently the gentleman was still next to her and she didn't want to be rude and describe him or ask too many questions of him. I went ahead on down and was walking down the center aisle of the store. I saw this older man standing there facing my direction. I wondered if that was the gentleman. As I got closer to him I realised that this was the man I had lived with when I was 19 - 24 years old and was fishing! I have not seen him in 25 years! The last time I saw him OD was just under 2 years old. Talk about blast from the past.
I gave him my phone numbers and address and told him to come by after we talked a bit. He came by Halloween night and we sat and visited for several hours. It was nice to see him. He really hasn't changed all that much, except the hair is a different color! (white beard!) I expected he would come by today, but he hasn't, maybe tonight or tomorrow. He's always been the type to just go where the wind sends him, so if he shows okay, if not oh well.
I'm going to go pick up my knitting and get busy on finishing a dishcloth. I've been working on this darned thing forever it seems! That's me...slow as she goes!

Oh yea...need to show you cuteness....

You got a man!!?? Dang it! I'm jealous here. Even if he comes occasionally, that's good too! LOL

Cute kitties and the lasagna sounds delicious. If it wasn't already Thursday, I'd ask for leftovers LOL. I'm sure there is none left. You sound very peaceful out there with all your chores done. I guess by now, all the laundry is piled back up LOL!!
