Oh Yeah, it's Monday alright! Time to start the "Monday Parade". And there's no better place to start than in the Etsy shop called naokosstoop where I found this print from an original painting on wood. All of the other illustrations in this shop are just as wonderful. Trust me!...No! Go see for yourself! :-)
Might as well get in the shower!
This "Monday Morning-8x8 Fine Art Photograph" by TheShutterbugEye shows, for sure, that it "IS" time to prepare for the day.
I'm still trying to shake the cobwebs out, but I'M AWAKE!!
This "Wearable Art Glass Pendant Necklace" by feverbloom says it all for most people at the beginning of the work week though...
...but I'm not quite that bad. I prefer to check the news and check the weather to see what kind of Monday it's actually going to be...Let's see...
The weather here in Massachusetts today is wonderfully depicted by this "Huge 24x48 inch two canvas diptych original abstract modern art contemporary painting STORMY MONDAY" by sallytrace.
Good thing I have no plans to go out in it!...Wonder if this is where the expression 'Blue Monday' came from?! I know that from looking around on Etsy, there are a lot of different depictions of 'Blue Monday'. Take a look...
And there's this "Blue Monday ORIGINAL MODERN Whimsical Bird Abstract ART" by drobart.
Truthfully, I'm feeling like this...
It's entitled " Monday Morning Squid". Squid is a rescue pug. You can find him and lots of other wonderful photographs, all telling their own story, at the shop of thechadandhope.
So, whether it continues to be a "Stormy Monday..." as in this Fine Art Photographic Print by jypsyrose...
...Or it calms down a bit, as is depicted in this "Monday Print from an original painting by Lison Salois" in the shop of zonzon...
....Something tells me that by this afternoon a nap is going to be in my future, just like the one depicted in this "Monday Afternoon-Signed Print from a Drawing" by MichelleBrusegaard.
So, that's my Monday. How's yours?!
Rain Of Love
I just love the rain,
because it makes me think, again,
of our private time together-
(time I spent with my best friend).
There's something quieting to the soul
about the rainfall's pitter patter,
that makes your problems disappear,
and never really seem to matter.
Just lying cuddled on the bed,
talking softly, from the heart;
or sleeping through the thunder's rumble,
while the birds all flit and dart.
Is it normal to be smiling,
when the clouds are dark with rain?
(Maybe its just the perspective
of the twisted, wet, insane!)
At any rate-when he's at work,
and I am here, at home, alone,
and I see the drizzle starting-
I get him, quickly, on the phone.
I say: "Hi Honey, what you doing?"
He says: "What else, but think of you!"
You see-He saw the raindrops falling,
and he didn't know what to do!
He couldn't drop his work and run!
He said he had to use restraint.
(And if he had, I would be shocked!)
But I admit-the thought was quaint.
Okay! So what? We're kind of strange-
We never want the rain to end!
But, before you judge us crazy,
watch some raindrops with your friend,
and then, just read this poem again!
