For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed Mondays.
Having always loved going to to school, yes all 8 of them, Mondays seemed like a thrill to be experienced. I worked at jobs I really loved or had people at work that I especially looked forward to meeting (yes, I suppose I’ve been rather blessed like that) after a weekend.
So mondays were never blue, or gloomy or any of the other dramatically sad words used to describe it.
Until March of 2020 that is.
See the mental load of a pandemic and our lives crashing in on our barely there 1000 sq ft home and 4 people is not an ideal situation. The hustle of getting everyone in front of a computer on time for school, playing Tech support, canteen staff, teacher, friend and classmate to two kids from monday to friday meant weekends are when I got to sleep in or do something for myself like head out for a morning walk.
This morning after ages I woke up on Monday raring to go, turns out its a school holiday! Well, I suppose its a good time to do a round up of a few things that made me smile over the last week. Here are some, maybe this will put the zing back into my mondays once again!
- A full rainbow
- A toy rediscovered
- new leaves on the cannonball tree
- Handmade Ganesh idols
- A moth emerging from its cocoon
It would seem joy is in the little things.
Happy week ahead! Tell me, what brought you joy this last week?
