Monkton Mondays!

Monday again! How regularly they turn up! Oh well…it has been a quiet weekend and although Hubby returned from a week-long absence and entertained Junior for a couple of hours…well that’s just it…it’s a couple of hours out of the 24 and not nearly enough…but hey! I’ll take what I can get. I’m a little out of sorts…can you tell? It’s how I typically react when Hubby gets back from being away…there’s the return to a more intensive routine that bugs me for a while versus the joy of having him home. It takes a few days to get things in balance again. The achievement of that equilibrium is howeverΒ a delicate process – easily derailed – often by silliness and randomness πŸ˜› You know what I mean…having to make a cup of tea when I’m deeply engrossed in a book…that sort of thing πŸ˜‰ Also, is it just me or does just the one extra person mean so much extra work and planning?!

Oh I know I’m cribbing…who cares! It’s Monday and I’m entitled…especially because I’ve just received a phone call from my maid’s Mom saying she isn’t well and won’t be coming to work today…so as soon as I get breakfast for said, now unsurprisingly, even more irritating Hubby, (this is a very Asian thing me thinks; this getting all het up with the Hubby when the maid disappears!), it’s off to do a sink full of dirty dishes and other ‘housework’, when I’d rather be writing! See what I mean! Well, at least she called which is more than some others do!

But there is one thing I did this morning that might just be my ‘Happy Fix’ for the day…took a picture of the beautiful, luminous moon at 6 am as soon as I got up πŸ™‚ Just writing about it brightens my mood! So I guess it’s true about the Deadly Donkey then…


Well now! Isn’t that a deep rhyme to be living by! Sounds a lot like my Granny actually πŸ˜› Thank you Mr. Monkton for your deep insights!

So today…I choose the Moon in all her wonderful lunacy!Β 

Isn't she beautiful? :)
Isn’t she beautiful? πŸ™‚

And you? Choose well People!

Happy Monday πŸ™‚Β 

NaPoWriMo – Day 3

Just Day 3 and I’m already beginning to feel the pressure! Not, surprisingly, where the actually haiku writing is concerned but finding the time to sit down and post it! Also the browsing for pictures is a double-edged sword – on the one hand it’s predictably inspirational while on the other i tend to wander off down memory lane instead of sticking to the task at hand πŸ˜‰

I have always loved the Moon. I find her mystic allure irresistible and seductive. Her sensual shimmer and gentle shine bathe the sleeping earth, making everything look better in moonlight πŸ™‚ And under her gentle caress, we lie dreaming – hopeful, serene and luminous πŸ™‚
