My Rainy Days and Mondays blog was created in August 2009, more than ten years ago. It began “life” on the Blogger site, and I then transferred to WordPress in 2013. The themes were the same: Mondays can make us blue; books chase away the blues; and I smile whenever I go to this site.
I am also reminded of the Carpenters’ song:
Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Nothin’ ever seems to fit
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down
I love Mondays! Seriously, I do. But I used to hate them. Which is one reason that I am now celebrating, via this blog, the absence of Blue Mondays. Post-retirement, I relished being able to wake up on Mondays, or any day, and do what I wanted. And read all day every day.
Chasing Away the Blues (through reading) is our antidote to the blues.
But some Mondays can seem blue, even now. Like the Monday of a holiday week, with many blogs quiet and memes missing. Yes, the bloggers need a break, too! What does this say about me that I am so glued to my laptop and my online world?
Am I addicted? Dependent? Or at loose ends because I just miss those connections?
Meanwhile, however, the books, those trusty friends, are close by…
I have changed the header several times over the years. Here is one I had a while back:
Now I am closing, with thoughts of rainy days…and Mondays…and books. What are your favorite themes on your blog(s)?
