You're good - this is another one of those deceptively hard assignments.

As usual, you're very witty AND passed on a lot of information about what you've been doing.

Happy Monday!

I agree with de. I'd really like to see those pants. I think Mary's latest series of posts would fit this topic. I loved the story of rescuing the snowmobile.

Kaye said...

I love your headlines! Too funny and very creative. I found you when I visited Kaye at The Road Goes Ever Ever On.

Chrissy said...

FUNNY. I am thankful to once again be able to venture out without socks.

alejna said...

You are so clever, as ever. I love the desk headline. (And of course I'm intrigued by the pants.)

I wanted to do this one, but I keep getting caught up with other things. Maybe I'll manage a late mission again.

Beck said...

Those bedsheet pants sound PRETTY alluring.
Without socks, eh? Thank goodness the frigid chill has lifted.

Whoa! Two weeks solo.

Kat said...

Hehe! Very creative.

- and I want to go outside without socks TOO!!!!

The block apparently isn't yours because there was some much said in these simple headlines.

Here's hoping the single parenting is over soon!

Chantal said...

Funny, I am glad the chill has passed, now if only it could pass here (3 more months... come on April)

Roofers are the same here :)

Louise said...

You are SOOOOO good at these things! It's as if you decide what to write, then make up the Monday Mission to fit it. I know that's not how it works, but you are always so creative.

I don't want to find my desk.
