Knowing the answer before I asked, I did it anyway.
I always have my fingers crossed that something wonderful and amazing and happy and silly will be in Mr.Right’s world on a Monday morning.
I sent a text to Mr. Right this morning. It was about 6:30 am, yikes.
Was there a basket of “Free pick a pair” of flip-flops as you entered your work place? Take off those polished work shoes that are making your feet hot and slip on a pair of fun flip flops. Just for today, to celebrate summer. Take them home with you when you leave tonight. Happy Monday!
Was there a big fat bucket of sidewalk chalk and a sign that read, “during your break, go out and get some sunshine and draw to your heart’s content”.
Were there 40 delicious, color saturated visiting quilts hanging on the cubicle walls? Just think how much “happy” would rub off on all your co-workers for one full week of color and beauty? You know, color to brighten the spirit and lift the Monday blahs?
I am guessing you know the answer.
Monday’s would be so much easier and happier if it started with sidewalk chalk. Love the stuff. I love laying on the ground and drawing a snail or a pizza or a sailboat. Next time, I want to draw patterns like you do with a stick on the beach sand.
My Monday morning started with a happy, hairy dog saying good morning to me. Can’t get any better than that.
When I came out to bike and rebound, I saw a gift wrapped present and card. (Note to boyfriends across the land, huge extra points and smoochies for gift wrapping surprise presents!)
Inside were a pair of salt and pepper shakers. All white and perfect. Perfect because they are happy elephants.
I ask you. How on earth could you start a Monday any better than that?
Mr. Right sure knows how to get a girl to smile, early on a Monday morning.
Now, about that bucket of sidewalk chalk at your place of employment……. I can see nicely dressed accounting folks kneeling on the sidewalk drawing frogs and butterflies. I can picture Monday grumpiness fading away. I can see men in ties, tossing the tie over their shoulder so it won’t bother them when they are drawing robots and fast cars.
See isn’t my idea of a Monday morning perfect?
Notice I didn’t mention the hour commute with sour drivers? Notice I didn’t mention eating a donut and gulping down less than stellar coffee?
Notice my version of Monday morning is happy and full of smiling and wrapping paper and a very happy dog and jumping with glee on a rebounder?
“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” A. Dumbledore.
ps. I have had my chickens for almost 3 years. Pictured with the new salt & pepper shakers are eggs number 620 & 621. I am grateful for every single egg.
Happy Monday, ya’all.
