Monday Monday

Cloudy day in Portland

Monday was definitely a Monday. I sat all day and watched patiently for the promised weather forecast–sunbreaks. Yet, they never made a showing. Just one or two would have made all the difference in the world outside my window.

Nothing but gray skies, a chill in the air, reports of freezing fog early morning. None of this aids in ridding oneself of back or leg pain. In fact, it only makes it worse.

Monday’s weather also fed into the slightly depressed, somewhat anxious state-of-mind while you’re awaiting a somewhat complex spinal surgery in a couple of weeks. Winter weather in the Pacific Northwest can bring the happiest soul down a notch or two or more.

The good news is that the weather is looking up–sunny both Thursday and Friday of this week. That is if you believe weather prognosticators!

This post is titled after a 1960s song recorded by The Mamas and The Papas, Monday Monday. However, the subject isn’t quite the same. Nor has this post been recorded by anyone.

Why don’t we end this with a video of The Mamas and The Papas singing Monday Monday:

  1. One of my favorite songs, Sherrey. I could add the Carpenters…Rainy Days and Mondays. We’ve had continual rain for days.

    1. Jill, sorry you’ve been experiencing the continual rain. As a friend described the weather this morning, she said it was “rather portlandy” weather. And I know yours is quite similar. Also a favorite of mine, the Carpenters and Rainy Days and Mondays.

  2. I thought of that song when i read the title of your post. It’s Tuesday here, but rainy and cold. Glad to see you posting more often, Sherrey, and sorry I haven’t been able to visit very often.

  3. I remember those endless gray Pacific Northwest days well. They can certainly take a toll on one’s state of mind. Hope the rest of your week has been a bit sunnier and a bit less painful, Sherrey.

  4. I guess the Mamas and the Papas will have to start singing “Wednesday, Wednesday.” as that is the day scheduled for surgery. Good wishes for a successful procedure and full recovery, Sherrey. 🙂

  5. Oh Sherrey, please know you’re in my thoughts and prayers for a successful and uneventful surgery. I agree the weather does have a major bearing on one’s mood and state of mind. The snow and bitter cold ( and cloudy days) seem endless. Daylight Savings time is in 2 weeks! Sending hugs and blessings.
