So…what is the Monday Poll?
Excellent question! It isn’t, contrary to its name, an actual poll, like with little clicky buttons. It’s just a list of more or less random questions I’ve been posting on this blog every Monday morning for the past quadrillion years (since 2007).
1. How did you spend New Year’s Eve?
We chilled at home because we couldn’t deal with being out and about and cold! I made dinner (basil, corn and parmesan pasta) and dessert (chocolate chip cookies), and then we watched a movie that was good but totally stressed me and Connor out called “The Wolf and the Lion.” At the stroke of midnight, we did all the silly and fun traditions we usually do – we jumped up and down, made lots of noise and opened the front door to let all the good luck in for the new year.
2. What was your first meal of 2024?
Does coffee count? LOL. I ate an Eggo waffle smeared with peanut butter topped with raisins. It was good!
3. Something that happened recently that surprised you?
One night last week after dinner, Connor and I got *this close* to walking up to a coyote when we were strolling around our neighborhood.
4. When’s your next hair appointment?
I don’t have one set yet, but the last time I got my hair cut was October. I usually like to wait four to six months between cuts, which means I’ll be due again for another cut sometime between March and May.
5. One small thing you need to do today?
I gotta do a little bit to start taking the tree down! It’s time. I’m going to miss having it in my living room.
Hello and happy New Year to you! I think today is a great day to be extra nice to yourself. Maybe make yourself a yummy meal or treat yourself to some time with a book?
There are lots of good things on the horizon for us in 2024. I just know it. 🙂
