|05:23 pm - Countering the Monday Curse|
It's days like today, days where my skin twitches with anxiety-quakes and that uncomfortable nagging sensation of dread keeps knocking, where I would like to actually, properly know how to do magic. A good day to shout "Expelliarmus" or similar, I mean -- except that there's no real enemy to disarm.
Master Danger, who has been particularly vocal today, suggested that we take a walk in the late afternoon. (The methods of suggestion used by Master Danger include incessant barking, levitation, and the occasional nip, so that I know where he'd like me to go.) We drove downtown, then, and walked the main street for a couple of blocks and then around the old county courthouse, bathed in sun.
At least it made HIM feel better.
I also tried to counter today with my new ankle boots, which meld 90s grunge and current steampunk trends. I was happy with the effect (worn not with a ripped tea dress or corset but with a short-ish straight skirt and low-contrast tights), but it didn't actually counter the curse -- nor did today's soundtrack of Garbage and a little vintage Courtney Love.
What do YOU do to counter the Monday blues? May it be more like Tuesday where you are.

I lost the Monday battle, alas, but perhaps tomorrow will be better. Or not.
Better days to you, A. [hugs]

I tried by looking at the river, but it didn't work very well.
If not even the River can make you feel better, it is a horrible Monday indeed.
[all the hugs to you]
I counter the Monday curse with strong coffee and GH. :-)
Soon it will be Tuesday!
Tea and Sleepy Hollow would do it for me, but SH was a rerun. [sigh]
It's Tuesday now! [perks up]
This particular Monday we were told to go home early due to a blizzard. So that wasn't too bad. Tuesday probably won't be any better though.
I'm glad you got to enjoy the sunshine :)
Stay safe in the snow, T! I send virtual hot tea and hugs.

It is Tuesday where I am now but it's certainly a cheerier day so far. I countered the Monday blues with a cup of Earl Grey tea while listening to Robert Glenister read me "The Cuckoo's Calling" by J.K. Rowling on my iPod. I am going to read it when it comes out in paperback but I thought I'd have it read to me first :) The problem with this solution to the Monday blues is it distracted me so much I forgot that the dinner needed a certain amount of preparation!
Hope you're having a better Tuesday. Hugs :)
Oooh, Robert Glenister! That sounds absolutely delightful. You clearly know how to cope with Monday, K!
[hugs] An excellent Tuesday to you, too. :)
Hope your Tuesday is turning out better.
Let's just say I'm ready for Wednesday. :)
Cheers and a great middle of the week to you, Stevie.
Apparently I just curl up and wait for it to be Tuesday. As I have.
Rain this morning, sun now and possible snow later in the week. We have it all!
Hopes for a better midweek, m'dear.
Holy cow, that's a lot of variety in your weather! I hope you have tea and supplies to stay in and rest through it all. :)
Hugs to you, ALH!
I hope your week is getting better. I had a Monday-ish Tuesday, and countered it with a new scarf and hat. I love to rock those hats.;) Your boots sound fabulous. ((Hugs))
Hats and scarves are powerful things! I bet your hat is gorgeous. :)
Hugs, my friend!
