This morning, one of our local weather forecasters said, “Today will be remembered for being very bright..”. I found this very insulting to the other days of the week. Certainly yesterday was exceptionally bright too. And for all I know Tuesday will be just as intelligent. Clearly this woman has a glaring bias (pun intended), and it concerns me that Tuesday through Sunday will remain forever undervalued and seen as somewhat dim.
In the climate workplace, I would say that the other days of the week have a credible claim of discrimination.
Ironically, the news stations here have decided that doppler radar images and assorted predictive computer applications really don’t serve the public as well as .. a window. So now the forecasters have an outdoor set with lots of cameras, and they give the weather report from there. “Look at the sun rise”, “It’s a cool morning – have the kids where a jacket if they’re waiting for the school bus”…I think I would like a job where I can stand outside and speak the obvious and/or provide a seven-day outlook with confidence – and be wrong half the time. How comforting to be able to shrug one’s shoulders and blame an unforeseen dip in the jet stream for any errors and remain employed. I could do this job well.
Yet as Mondays go, this one is pretty spectacular. Certainly far too cool and clear to be inside, so the Sirs and I are bracing for a serious nature walk. I’ll be breathing deep and feeling the sun tickle my skin; the Sirs will be marking every tree as we go, crisscrossing their leashes around my legs with thoughtless abandon, oblivious to the beauty around them and the precarious position in which I am being placed. I have no worries though, for I have been assured, that today is very bright. With that kind of wisdom around me, I feel pretty sure I won’t fall over my feet.

The perfect morning.
Your words, and your wit, with the accompanying photo have me in stitches. And, as always, with your wisdom I agree. Have a beautiful day, Mimi, and enjoy your walk in the warm sunshine. It is a glorious day.
Thanks Jo..I just couldn’t get a serious grip on the day (not with the plumbers here all morning)…:-)
I start with the bathroom renos on the first of October. It’s going to be like “Hell Week(s)” so I definitely feel your pen and love that you used humor to dissipate it. Wishing you more perfect days to end the month and begin the next. ❤
Thank you..and you know that I wish you only perfect days (but for hell week)..<3
I think I meant to type feel your pain, but must have arthritically typed it wrong and my genius computer decided I’d like to feel your pen instead. 🙂
I’ll share my pen with you too! 🙂
That’s one of the many reasons we are friends. We share nicely. ❤ Thanks kiddo. Hope to borrow your pen soon.
we always did..;-)
See, this is why I love you…making sure that all the days of the week are looked after and appreciated. You my lovely friend are the one who is bright! xoxo
Well BonBon, fair is fair (pun intended again)..and you know how Mondays can get – lauding it all over the other days, ‘my weather forecaster likes me better, nyah nyah’..I hate that kind of rivalry…xoxo
Me too, me too! Not much heart here for rivalry. Mondays do seem to carry an added burden, though, of being a bit more hated than the rest of ’em so I give them a little added sympathy for their isolating experience 🙂 xoxo
ANY day that has YOU in it is bound to be sparkling, sweet friend! 🙂 But thanks for clearing things up for me–I was a little foggy on how those prognostications worked… 😉 xoxo
May you always have this bias – it’s great with me!!! And happy to clean the window …xox
You are so funny and fun! Who but you would have thunk it? I too use my window…and usually with far better results than my tv screen. Hope you and the sirs thoroughly enjoyed your nature walk, and even more so, hope you stayed on your feet!
Well we stayed on our feet – and are first getting out now..We had the plumber visiting our house today and he is finally gone. Four new toilets though – and none of them overflow…yay..xox
Yay is an understatement I’d say! Good for you. Enjoy the walk…enormously.
The Sirs got their wiggles out in the front yard and are now out playing in the back..I’m on the porch with a glass of wine and twelve cases of undying appreciation..xox
what a nice picture that is! your cup runeth over Mim!
It really does..I treasure these moments..xox
Happy for you and your treasures. May they always make you feel so.
Oh, sometimes they don’t. I can sing the blues with the best of them. But right now? In this moment? It’s all a gift Rhoni and I am well advised to treasure it so that I never take such wonderfulness for granted..xox
then that’s even better. all the more special.
love you sk
I love it!! The Sirs sound like they have the life! I hope the walk was wonderful….and safe! Those leashes can really do a job on you, can’t they? 😉
Especially when one is a klutz..:-)
I can completely relate!! But aren’t they so worth it?? 🙂
hahaha–yes, Tuesday-Sunday have a legit beef, as I personally think Monday is a little slow to start, compared to the other days.
Laughing – fair point Susan..Something we can remind it about if it starts getting all high and mighty with the other days. 😉
It was a beautiful day today Mimi – you nailed it. Even if the sun didn’t “tickle my sun.”
Oh no…did I miss an error!! I’m going back..
Sounds like a great Monday, mine was busier then usual but now I am into Tuesday
Wishing you a terrific Tuesday!
Happy Tuesday Mimi. 🙂
:-). Good Wednesday morning my friend…:-)
Thanks my friend. On my way to the GYM and it is only 5:54 in the morning…ha ha. Have a super day. 🙂 Renee
I usually go at 6:15 so I can relate! Have a great day!!!
Another morning person. Great! The best time of the day. 🙂
It definitely is..:-)
