Monday privilege

There's something about being off work on Mondays that makes this working less thing extra decadent.
Monday is supposed to be the first work day of the week after all, so it feels like a stolen day, a bit of a guilty pleasure. I feel privileged.
While others get going in their offices I stroll the beach, photograph things like foam and trees, read a book, write in my journal and make all sorts of plans for my blog.
A calming and yet full day. Lovely...

  2. My son used to get Fridays off after working 4 12-hour shifts at the nuke plant and loved having the time on the weekends. Now the plant is closed and he's on unemployment taking classes so can arrange his schedule even more. He says he never has a problem filling his free time!

    1. I'm sorry your son lost his job, but I can relate to never being bored. I have Fridays off too, and love it, but somehow Mondays seem more extravagant. I think it's because a lot of people who work part time or have more flexible hours take Fridays off, but Mondays are more rare. I'm lucky to have both. ;-)

  4. Oh yes, Monday IS a bonus day. I decided to stop dreading Monday's and focus on the fact that they are one day closer to the weekend! Still not my favorite day of the week but helped change my perspective. And yes, I read your post from my office cubicle and it brightened my Monday.

  5. Do you often have that foam on the beach? I've never seen such fluffy piles of it.

    1. Yes, it happens regularly. Not daily, but often enough not to be strange or rare.

I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
