It is Monday! What a wonderful day!
(Yes.I am still on a campaign to love my Mondays like I love my Fridays and my weekends).
This weekend in the ATL was beautiful! The temps were in the high 80s. It was the type of weather that was right for opening the sunroof and allowing the wind to blow through my hair.
My best friend LadyTee hung out with me on Saturday night. That was fun, as we don't see each other that much. Her daughter was at a J. Cole concert at an amphitheater a couple of miles from my house, so it was easier for her to hang out at my place rather than drive way back out to her place. So we watched a couple of movies. I cooked. And I even worked more on the butter cookie recipe (Lemon butter cookies are the business. That is all).
Then we watched a Scientology documentary on HBO. That was... I don't know. I fail miserably at the legalisms of religion as it is. I'm not sure that I can be in anything so stringent as to where I have to deal with punishments or even excommunication if I so much as ask a question or disagree with anything the leadership says. Ya'll might as well just reject me from the jump because I scrutinize my spiritual stuff to the max.
So did you go see Straight Out of Compton? I didn't. I like to wait until the second or third week after a movie comes out in theater before I see big movies.I prefer half-crowded theaters, where I don't have to search for seats. And I don't like sitting next to people in the dark. Nope.
I heard it was great. I will check it out.
I do have the Soundtrack, though.
That was good. It is good to hear Dre beats again, but it didn't blow me away. There was way too much cussing for me. But this is to be expected. I would LOVE an instrumentals CD. He's done that before. I'm a beats and production type of gal, so that would be nice.
It won't be on my playlist. I listen to too much of it, I may start doing drive-by shootings or cussing folk out. None of that.
Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to my sister Kentucky, whose birthday is today! She turns 34, I believe. I am happy to have her staying with me, but I know she will be leaving for the UAE soon. I am already missing her.
I don't know what she wants for her birthday. I am not going to drag it out of her. Heck, it's hard enough getting out of her what she wants to eat or what she needs from me during this time of transition. Most likely, I will give her some money. She's hanging with her friends today, so I know she's gonna have a good time.
I just want to get to the point of not crying when thinking of her leaving for another country. I have to keep telling myself it will be alright. And I know it will.
Quote of the Week. I heard a quote by Pastor D. Bronner that blew me away:
When you are born, you look like your parents. But when you die, you look like your decisions.
Wow. That is way deeper than the words. I've been thinking about that. It is true in many cases. I can't say all, though. But you can't tell me it didn't automatically bring to mind some things. It made me think about my decisions. Some are good, and some are bad. I am a work under construction, until the day I die.

I have a doctor's appointment this morning. I'm not all that excited about it, as it's suppose to rain cats, dogs and frogs all week. My doctor is 30 miles away, so that will be a wonderful ride!
I can make it wonderful, you see. I'm just saying! This is a great day, rain or shine.
Have a great Monday... on purpose!
