I think Mondays are inherently difficult. (Especially this one--this one which was so much about fighting those first-day nerves).
So I'm making a little vow to keep things positive. To dedicate Monday's posts to hopes for the future, say, or gratuity lists.
So, this week I'm thankful for:
breakfast in bed and the boy who brings me it (I don't think he knows just how loving or sexy a gesture this is*)
a £10 tea-bill (it's an afternoon well spent)
animal pattern (because I have my eye on a cat cardigan--and a sister whose niche it is to draw)
movie-dates (mostly with my love)
the feeling of fall creeping in (and it's colour--it's beautiful, beautiful colour)
children's books (because I get to read them all semester)
postcards (because there is just so much to love)
bike-rides (although they hurt and aren't yet mastered, I am proud I can)
and: the blogosphere (because I hate the 'word', but I love the kindness).
Is there anything you'd like to share to beat those Monday blues?
*He makes me the happiest.
