Learning to Appreciate Mondays

Mondays are not my favorite day of the week, so I appreciate Paula’s theme of finding something to be happy about on Mondays. I am happy today that it’s a short work week. Easter is next weekend, and my office is closed on Good Friday. It’s a strange holiday for an insurance / financial services company to be closed, but hey, I’m not complaining. It has been a long stretch since we had a holiday, the last one being New Year’s Day.

I am happy to be facing a four-day work week, and since Monday is almost over, I only have three days left!

I am also feeling encouraged today because I have been spending more time recently learning how to spruce up my blog, from appearance to content. I have a growing list of new ideas which inspires me.

I have about seven projects in progress on my sewing table, and that motivates me. My creative juices were definitely flowing over the weekend, and I can’t wait to get back to my sewing space!

Hope you found something to be happy about today too!


  • Yesterday I wrote a post about being thankful, but today has not been the best of days for me. Migraine all day (so stayed home from work), and my head still hurts, but I have to go to a meeting now. How about if I’m happy that my headache will surely be gone by the morning?! I’m also happy for you that you have a short work week (hey — I guess I will too since I stayed home today) and that you have those lovely Nicey Jane fabrics. Let that creativity flow!

  • It’s good to find the ‘great’ in the mundane. Have fun sprucing up your blog, it’s looking great! I’ve been doing a little spring cleaning over at Craftyblossom too! Oh, and I love those Nicey Jane fabrics, can’t wait to see what you’re doin’…

  • My husband looked over my shoulder the other day and exclaimed “crocuses!” At which I turned around and said “huh?” Seeing as I’m not the green thumb type, he had to explain he liked the flowers at the top of your blog. I thought they were pretty, but there’s no way I could have identified them 🙂

    I also really like your keeping up with the Makes Me Happy Mondays. I tend towards sarcastic and pessimistic and every now and again it is nice to get a kick in the pants to say “Hey, today COULD be a good day if you would just let it.” So I’m trying-thanks for keeping me on my toes!

  • Love your Monday post! I’m so happy that you get Friday off. No holidays since New Year’s Day? You are WAY overdue! Enjoy your short week!

  • Your cat in the box photo made me smile. Happy days to you and have a great short week.

  • Love your Nicey jane – I ordered some last week:-) I love public holidays and short weeks too.

  • Couldn’t agree more about the Easter Holidays -a long weekend – bliss!

    Your cat in a box is soo cute 😀

    Have a great week and a fantastic weekend break x

  • Your cats are adorable! They look for soft, I could just reach inside my screen and pet them. I like your blog’s new look and your fabrics are YUMMY. Enjoy the rest of your week and have fun stitching.

  • Love the kitties! Your blog is looking great …it must be blog make-over week or something! I’ve been working on mine, too:)

    Have a great short week!

  • I don’t know if I’ll ever LOVE Mondays…but I’m trying!

  • I love the kitty in the box and your Nicey Jane fabric. I don’t think I have any of it. Are the prints as large scale as her last line?

  • You always inspire me. You always are working on something. My computer crashed and died. So I’m trying to use a old desk top of my daughters and I hate it. So I’m slow answering. I can’t wait to get a new one. Hopefully soon

  • Mondays aren’t my favorite day either. Love the fabric you’re working with, can’t wait to see your finished project. Cute kitties and the blog looks great too.
