Good morning to everyone, wherever you are, especially Maria and Louis – who need a bit of cheer up (each of them for different reasons) and to my loyal readers from the former Soviet Union whose presence I greet with pleasure and gratitude every single day.
It’s been Monday, as you well know, and I don’t always like Mondays, I have to admit. I am pretty sure I mentioned it before and I don’t want to repeat myself going into details.
However, this has been a special Monday. It wasn’t special because something happened but because it didn’t feel like a Monday. I am pretty sure I am not the only one who has that ethereal feeling that the time ceases to exist now and then and you have a chance to live in a bubble with no time and no worries.
I did my job – more or less better than I should have but I tried not to let my right hand be a deterrent in doing it. I’ve already taken two sick days as you know and with the three personal days to prepare the magazine, I will soon be out of any days off and I still cling to the hope that this summer I will roast on a sandy beach and listen to the waves charming me into believing that a vacation could last for as long as you wish.
I navigated on Facebook minutely, and that was something I haven’t done in a while. However, my left hand is not good at writing too much but it is good at handling the mouse so I enjoyed endless videos with cats and dogs and birds and my favorite – wolves.
In a way it seems meaningless to spend time like this especially when you have lots of other things to do but in my defense I have to say that it beats stress out. I actually always said that laughter is what a person needs in life the most. We have enough of others, if we think about.
So, not doing anything very important, just laughing my day away, taking a stroll now and then – not healthy to sit down in front of the computer all day long, and reading a book – by now you must know that I enjoy reading and I need to read at least a book a day, it didn’t seem to be a Monday at all.
The only stressful moments were when Rex was barking hearing my daughter blowing her nose or sneezing. He always manages to puzzle me with his attitude: it is normal for him to sneeze, but it is not normal that someone else does the same. Could you see me shaking my head?
Anyway, believe me or not, I started writing this a while ago. Right now, I have to use two fingers only and it is difficult when you’re used to typing with all your fingers. Uncountable mistakes are made and I have to go back and correct all the time!
Besides that, about two hours ago I started my second book today and I really find it fascinating and I want to finish it before going to bed, if possible. That will keep me from thinking of the chores I haven’t done – not because I didn’t want to but because I couldn’t. (Okay, I’ll admit, it wasn’t like I was dying to do them. I am very lazy when it comes to such things and only thinking of what might crawl into the house if I don’t keep it spotless is the only encouragement I need).
Anyway, there is tomorrow and I hope nothing will crumble till tomorrow. Maybe tomorrow I will be able to do it and if not, I am going to buy some surgical gloves and do it. It’s not like I could see the cat or the dog trying to do anything and my daughter is too sick to ask her to clean the kitchen for instance.
I will leave you and say good bye. The moon outside is covered in clouds in such a way that it looks like an owl. It’s fascinating! I am thinking to stay out on the balcony for a while. The temperature is over zero tonight - which is something else that amazes me. How can temperature be lower at noon than at night? Hmm?
Anyway, the important thing is that is not so cold that I cannot stay outside for a while. I wish you to feel warm wherever you are. I am sure that there are some places where the weather is much much much more frigid than here.

Sometimes I have good ideas... (what do you think?)
Sometimes fascinating guests!
(that for sure!)
Sometimes I have to share some of my frustrations,..
(not too tempting, huh!)
