Monday Morning Blues

Good morning on this back to work Monday.  These weekends just fly on by, don't they?  This is especially true on my cooking weekends when it feels like I don't have any time for myself.  But now, I don't have to cook for the next two weeks which makes it worth it.  And, I didn't sleep very well last night, so I'm not quite up to par.  Need a couple of iced coffees to get me going.

"Take time every day to do something silly".-- Philipa Walker 

Have you ever noticed that spring fever tends to bring out our longing and our sense of needs for attention, play, and laughter.  Some of us may be afraid to express those needs we don't want to be considered childish, so we keep them bottled up inside of ourselves and instead...and all we can express to others is frustration.  I totally "LOVE" being silly.  If only you could see my office...filled with little dolls and animals...all of which sing and dance...and sometimes I turn them all on at once just to cause a stir.  And, with each one singing a different song, it sure does cause a stir.  Those who don't know me would never guess that this is the office of a 63 year old woman.

So, Ifyou have spent the winter months all uptight and frustrated, let Spring be a reminder to give yourselves a break from work and study.  Laugh a little...and make sure you share that laughter with someone else.  And when you do, don't be surprised to find yourself getting back exactly what you need. 


  1. The weekends do really fly by. Especially now, when there is much yard work to be done!

    I think it's really important to play - I can just imagine all your singing friends on your desk! You have to keep laughing - it's what gets you through!

    Have a great day - even though it's a Monday!

  2. Have you ever tried Laughter Yoga? It's great for those who enjoy unselfconscious silliness and fun.

  3. I had such a good laugh yesterday I gave myself a headache. A very old and dear friend of mine and her husband (who is an old and dear friend of my husband's) got together with the kids. Then my friend and I proceeded to tell all of our husband's "funny" stories. Oh, it's so much fun to throw a spouse under the bus, huh? hahahaha!

  4. I love Spring for those reasons. It's a new thaw. A new start. A clean slate for the year. And it just invigorates me beyond all get out.

    Hope you're having a wonderful day Sweetie!

  5. I'd love to be a fly on the wall, when you set all your little toys in motion. -giggggggles-

  6. Your office sure sounds like a fun place to be :) would love to be a fly on the wall when your have a silly moment lol xx

  7. Stopping in... and love that you can 'play'! Goes along with the daily laughter we all need...

  8. I remember cooking for a couple of weeks at a time to free up my evenings. Your office sounds like a very fun and inviting one. keep being silly, you will stay young forever.
