Mondays Tidbits

Monday Monday - Do you remember that song by the Mama's and the Papa's - those were the good old days - I think I am a hippie in my old age!  Back when the real hippie movement was on - I was trying to get my life in order.  Now I have the time to be a happy hippie.  Okay short and sweet Monday as I am still watching the grandson full time this week.


A margarita  for and adult and ice cream for a kid.
.I think I like the ice cream more myself too.
Coconut Ice Cream - (yuck - I'd have chocolate)
More pictures of Mexico.


New great great nephew!


Isn't he sweet?


Oh yeah - for those of you keeping up with my I mean the princesses bed saga - the new one that was $1100 went out for $500 at 1 pm Saturday and the newest came in Saturday at 3 pm.  I forget the number of changes now - but THIS IS THE BED.


THE LAUGH:



THE LIFT:

Denise said...

Happy Monday sweet friend, love you.

linda eller said...

Love your pictures this morning. I was never into the hippie thing back then either, but now that I am old, I probably could be classified as one! lol At least a flower child...

Katie Clooney said...

So cute! Your new nephew is precious. I think I fixed the no reply thing but not sure. Can you try and let me know. Thanks so much. Have a wonderful day of laughs, Sandie!

BECKY said...

Awwww, precious boys and doggy!

Theresa said...

Cutest little great-nephew:) Aren't babies just the sweetest? I'll take some of that ice-cream too:) Have a blessed day dear Sandie, HUGS!

Oh yes girl. I went to see them many moons ago. What a great stage movin and a grovin for an hour with my friend we watched them. Oh Momma sure could sing and dance even for her large size and her boots atire. She had us all standing and a moving that night.

Oh nice sweet baby in your family.

Oh your Grandson oh hmmmm. He is a cutie pie.

Oh cannot forget your doggie.

He is special family.

Great Monday blog Girl.

Got me laughing and awing.

Pat MacKenzie said...

Manas and Papas are one of my all time favorite groups. I was a hippie wannabe back in the 60s but was too inhibited to let loose and wear flowers in my hair and go to San Francisco. :) Lovely little great-great nephew. Have a great week. BTW - I love anything coconut!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh nice and sweet and fun today. Oh, you are so nice to me!!!! (HUGS) TO YOU!!! I love the LIFT today. I always see eye to eye with C.S. Lewis.

TexWisGirl said...

i hope THE BED works!

My Journey With Candida said...

When I eat ice cream, I eat coconut ice cream sweetened with agave.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I don't consider myself a hippie, but I do like the Mamas and the Papas - I like all folk music :-)

Jackie said...

Your great great nephew is precious. All little banies are so precious to me. Sigh. Their innocence and love just wraps around my heart strings.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I still have that hippy streak in me at 63!! So glad the princess has another bed and I hope this one is the one!
hugs,
Linda

Aww to the puppy with the cupcake. I baked a strawberry cake once, my only time making that flavor and the dog ate it. I made a German Chocolate a few years later and the same dog ate the whole thing. LOL!! He was a good dog too, just couldn't resist the temptation when left alone with a cake in the house, I guess. The first was high up on the kitchen counter, the second in the middle of the dining room table.

Silly dog. :)


Your little addition is a sweetie pie!!! He's just cute. Your grand is a pretty good looking fella too. :)

Shelly said...

Beautiful children in your family! That CS Lewis quote is one of my all time favorites~

Terri D. said...

The great-great nephew is precious. I agree with you on the chocolate ice cream, and that it would be better than a margarita. Yes, I remember the Mamas & Papas and most of their songs...I also grew up in the 60s and went through a phase of wearing mini skirts and moccasins...LOL, but I was not a "real" hippie (though I am pretty hippy now!)!

Cathy said...

I'd take ice cream too, but not coconut.

Your great nephew is adorable!

Sharon said...

Yes, I remember "Monday, Monday" - but lately I've been "California Dreaming"...

I'm not a fan of anything with coconut in it - one of the few tastes that I haven't outgrown! But, that photo of your new great great nephew might be one of the *sweetest* things I've seen lately!

I want to see photos of the PRINCESS PEA MATTRESS. Many nights I find myself asleep on the couch. I think that might be my favorite *mattress* in the house.

And Disco, just make sure that your cupcake isn't chocolate!! Sometimes dreams do come true - especially for little furry faces as adorable as you!

Elizabeth said...

I don't know, is the Princess SURE this is the right bed.
I love coconut ice cream, and chocolate, and every other kind except bubble gum and mint chocolate chip.
Yum. Ice cream is one of my favorite any time foods.

Rae said...

Enjoy your time with your grandson. Grandma is going to need some spa time next week.

Sandee said...

I know you are having a great time with your grandson.

I'll take the chocolate ice cream too.

Love the laugh and loved the lift.

Disco is such an Awww...that I added your link to Awww Mondays.

Have a fabulous day. Scritches to Disco. :)

Lynn said...

I hope Disco gets a cupcake soon. :)

The Domestic Sweetheart said...

He's adorable!! Congrats! I too would like to think of myself as a happy hippy :) Happy Monday!

Ginny said...

Disco, your dream is about the same as mine! O.K. grandson is back from Mexico and you are now watching him...and where is daughter??

Kathe W. said...

what a happy happy post! Have a wonderful day and congrats on the new great nephew! He is lovely!

Laurie said...

beautiful baby! I do remember that song, I hope your reach that cup cake Disco!

Ms. A said...

I sure hope CS Lewis is right.

Beautiful baby!

Betsy said...

I love Jack Russell terriers they are so fun.
I love coconut ice cream with chocolate on the top Yummmmm
Your nephew is adorable, so sweet.
Have a great week with your cute grandson.

Pondside said...

I visit Crazy enough to have my own room there!

Susan said...

Hello little hippie girl. So glad you are a happy hippie. hee hee

You know what? I'd take ice cream over a margarita any day, too.

Hope your day with GS has been fun. Susan

Catherine said...

Dear Sandie, I would enjoy either ice cream the coconut or the chocolate or why not may be even both!
I always enjoy the lift and the laugh. Thank you dear.
Blessings and hugs, Catherine xo

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

Sure hope this new bed/mattress is the one. Hard to believe it's still an on going saga. You are blessed to have your grandson there. I get to watch one or two of mine every other week or so but that is only for a day at a time. They are still toddlers and I have to say they give me a work out. Hope your Monday is a wonderful one!

Jim said...

Best wishes with the Princess bed!!!
I liked the Mama's and the Papa's and all the rest of 60's and 70's too. I wasn't a hippie but almost. My hair was collar length and I rode a motorcycle.

I still listen to classic rock.
But the singers are sooo young it seems now.

Maggid said...

In total agreement with CS Lewis . . .

Jill said...

ANOTHER bed? Good grief! May this be the "ONE!"

Coconut ice cream sounds good to me. Maybe even chocolate ice cream!

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Coconut ice cream doesn't sound that nice to me but I am a chocolate ice cream person.........

Theresa said...

Yay on finally getting the bed you want! I hope you get a good night sleep now!

I know that big eyed look for a cupcake. I get that same one every time I am faced with a cupcake :)

Munir said...

Happy Monday .May God bless you and your family.

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I'd like a cupcake too! Have a great week:@)

Nonnie said...

Gee ... And I thought our bed story was crazy. Your boy is beautiful and so is the new baby.
California Dreaming was my favorite and another one Mama Cass did called Dream a Little Dream of Me.
Poor Disco, you ought to get something special for that sweet face.
Hope your Monday, Monday was a great one.
Love C.S. Lewis. Such a wise man.

Dar said...

Chocolate for me too. LOL, a happy hippie, I'd be too bout now. I still like some of the bohemian clothes that are back, except the wide bell bottoms. lol ...or didn't they ever leave? Precious baby looking so soft and comfy. I'll bet you loved snuggling a little one again.
Life is Good

Stephanie said...

Oh I would totally try that ice cream!! And that little babe is truly adorable!

The Boston Lady said...

Congrats on the new baby in the family. He's a doll. And so is GS, I just know he and grandma are having some fun this week. When she gets off that new bed. Ann

jack69 said...

Ahhh the misplaced Hippie. Funny when the time is available, not too manty folks care for tie-dye! LOL

Love the Grandson, SMART choice the Coconut flavor, puts Chocolate to shame. (WHAT? you don't agree?, Hey, the kid is smart!

Cute Great nephew.

I am sure Disco can dream!

((HUGS)) from Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I remember that songs very well and know exactly what I was doing at the time! I was in HS. I wore bell bottoms. That's right, you don't like coconut. The great great nephew is adorable. I will probably have one of those before I have a grandchild at this rate. Honestly another mattress?

Dee said...

I can't believe it....Disco and I have the same dream ......I was sort of a hippie....the mama's and the papa's songs bring back a lot of memories. I had long hair like Cher, wore granny gowns and even had a suede jacket with fringe on it. LOL I also have that hour glass figure...

SweetMarie said...

I would like to try coconut ice cream.
Your nephew is so precious!
I agree with Disco, always dream.:) Hugs to Disco! He's so adorable!

I sure hope this bed is the one! :)
What kind is it? I don't like hard beds with my neck and back problems.

hugs,
Marie

Grandma Bonnie said...

Oh Disco dream on. It never hurts to dream. Happy Monday!

Terri said...

Oh how I would love a cupcake...sniff, sniff. I hate diets.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

It so wonderful having love from those boys all around you!
love

Karen Lange said...

The little nephew is adorable! :) I am sure you will be a super great great aunt! :)

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Sandie,
It's really great to start our week reading your most encouraging blog, sweetheart.
You always put a smile on my face.
I love this pic of your grandson.
Thank you for your kind emails!
Perhaps, it will be a good idea to connect Online with American folks who are interested in Handicrafts, the way I do. I see it in this way, the more the merrier...
Have a great week, Sandie, sweet friend! I'll soon send you the Instrumental Music of My Song, a flute, keyboards, guitars, etc. You see, I only recorded the melody in MP3, and wrote the lyrics, but a Band played my song, actually My Music Teachers. I am also involved in Art Lessons. Poetry, Literature and Music are some of my favourites subjects.
Have a blessed time, Sandie, family and friends!
God may bless you all!
HUGS,
Poet Starry.

Lee said...

Thanks for making me smile.

What a little cutey, the bub is. :)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Oh I loved the Mama's and the Poppa's! Just hearing their music makes me think of that time in my life. Wish I knew then what I know now!!

Oh, Disco, I would love one of those cupcakes right now, too!

NanaDiana said...

That Disco is something else! Great pictures, Sandie-Your nephew is adorable. xo Diana

Ivy and Elephants said...

Hope "the princess" enjoys the bed.
Congrats on a sweet new baby to love, he's adorable.
Hugs,
Patti

Debbie said...

I would eat coconut ice cream! I like coconut in just about anything.

As usual, I loved your tidbits and laughed about you being a happy hippie. That CS Lewis quote at the end really rocked my boat this morning. I love that!!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I don't know about you Disco but I'm seriously wanting that cupcake...wanna split it??
