Happy Monday thoughts

I was in the kitchen getting my second cup of coffee and looked out the window just in time to see this.  It was a happy surprise that we are going to have a sunny day today and can get outside!

I'm sitting here craving pumpkin pancakes and after looking at recipes am instead going to have a couple of my husband's frozen vegan sweet potato pancakes (the no effort solution).  I have no big plans for the day.  I want to watch the final episode of this season of Downton Abbey on-line, walk the dog, and call some friends and my future daughter-in-law who has just moved for a new job.  I may help my son move cross country when the time comes in a few months - he is staying a few more months at this current job.

I need to decide whether to make reservations for this which is the 90th anniversary celebration dinner at a restaurant near us - looks like fun and a good way to celebrate leap year doesn't it?  I would like to find at least one other couple to go with us.  Want to head on down to Atlanta and go with us?
