very monday

I'm feeling very Monday this morning.

It's raining, on and off, and the light in the house keeps darkening as clouds pass over the sun. I find that very captivating, the play of light and shadow.

I am almost finished with my second cup of coffee and I'm just starting to feel awake, twenty-three minutes before noon.

(Still not a morning person.)

Here's one thing I know: spending today on the couch, listening to the rain, reading (or even playing solitaire) is a good use of my time.

Good, bad - thinking makes it so, to paraphrase Mr Shakespeare.
