“Q” is for questions, quality VS quantity, Queen, quagmire and waggy tailed animal butts

Happy Monday Travellers,

Today is brought to you by the arctic blast that just arrived here in Kansas. The weekend was a glorious 65-70 degrees, all sunny and stuff. Last night winter rather savagely elbowed it’s way into our lives.

Today the letter is “Q”…oh, and if you are new, let’s check out a few other letters so you can catch the plot here…Imagination Mondays, all fun, all day, you can do it!!

The Laundromat

Welcome back Travellers,

This little train of thought is brought to you by my local laundromat. I’ve been going to the nearest one this past week due to my washing machine being on the blink. I’m currently waiting on the part that’s been ordered to repair it. It feels like it’s taking forever…which is how everything feels that’s inconvenient to us, isn’t it?

“O” is for One, Opera, Ollie The One Eyed Octopus and a Real Mirror

Good evening lovely Travellers,

How did you fare today on this fine Monday? It’s abit overcast here and gloomy and windy and chilly and well, Fall. First day I’ve adorned myself with a sweater. And there is a chill drifting over the hard wood floors in the house, which means there’s only 5 months till we are back to Spring!!

Let’s talk about “O”…and by the way, in case you have just stumbled into this space, on Mondays we wear pink! No, on Monday’s we use our imaginations to invoke fun and frivolity. We remind ourselves that the world is filled with all the joys of our childhood if we just take a moment and pause to engage that part of our minds.

“M” is for Mountains, music, my birthday & tiny animal ears

Good evening Travellers,

I realize I am sooooo late, my apologies. I missed the early morning…because it’s my birthday today and well, HERE I AM!!! Since it’s my birthday, you gotta open ALL THE LINKS. Think of it as my present to you!

Have about we call this the Midnight edition of Imagination Monday?

“L” is for a little boat & a little mountain

Happy Monday Travellers!!

It begins again, doesn’t it? I awoke this morning to a strange dream and THIS SONG playing over and over in my head. All I could hear Rihanna and the words, “So live your life..” and then I realized, today is “L” and “L” is for LIFE, isn’t it?

In case you are new here, GREETINGS and SALUTATIONS, please refer to this post, or this post, or any Monday post that begins it’s title with a letter in quotations. It’ll give you a better idea of what’s happening in the space below, but in short, I’m using a childhood exercise to reframe Mondays. To remove the dread and despair and replace it with fun and imagination.

“K” is for Kiss, Kaleidoscope, Tesla and Clover

Happy Monday Travellers!!

Are Mondays really so bad? I mean really, it’s just another day of the week isn’t it? I wonder every Monday how did this day come to be branded the problem child of the week days. I’m sure you’re thinking, because I have to go back to school or work or whatever you do…sometimes I think, at least in America, we should be glad for that, glad to have a job and the good fortune of an education, because so many in the world don’t have either one. And in five days another weekend will appear. Just a thought…

Today’s imagination exercise is brought to you by the letter “K”. In case you are new here, WELCOME and if you click on the “Imaginative Alphabet Stuff” category at the top of this post, it will display all the other letter’s of the past several weeks. Probably help you make sene of what I’m doing as well…just a helpful hint in one word, FUN, do you make time for some fun every day?…Start with “A”…

“J” is for Joy, Juicy and flying about in a Heli-J

Happy Monday Travellers,

Are you feeling rested yet? It’s always most unfortunate to arrive at Monday morning and be exhausted from your weekend. Do you know what I mean? Maybe you’re just exhausted from your life, because that also happens and Monday somehow takes the blame. I haven’t really greeted this morning in the finest of moods myself, but we walked under a sky that only Monet could have painted and gladness planted a little seed inside my soul. Pretty sure that’s called hope…

Let’s be good sports here and ease our minds and weary souls with a little imagination exercise…in case you are unfamiliar with this situations, please see the past Monday’s posts, here, here, here and here  just for starters… E-I can be found trailing not too far behind with some browsing…

“I” is for kid stuff and dropping the mic

Hello Travellers,

Here’s Monday!!

Only this one here in the States is a holiday for most, which means no work today. I had set my alarm for 5am, but didn’t get up until 6am, because well, it’s a holiday. And I’m here late, because it’s a holiday…

Our morning walk was uneventful. The sky was clear, the sun rising, and I tell you, no clouds equals no greater glory. Don’t get me wrong, the way the sun’s rays cast their light across whatever object they encounter is a thing of beauty, but it fails to really make my jaw drop in wonder like the clouds can. And walking with the rising sun is still the best wake up I think a human can experience.

Not sure what I’m going to do when winter comes though…But we’ll worry about that when the time comes, which is something I need to learn to say more often in life.

Is your imagination ready?

“F” is for Flamingos and Fear

Good Monday morning Travellers,

This Monday finds me abit weary in the world, how about you? My business is being audited, which actually isn’t as nerve wracking for me as it seems to be for other people. I tend to believe if you run an honest business, auditing is just a formality which at it’s worst finds minor errors that can be corrected.

If only I handled the rest of my life with such rational ease…

BUT it’s Monday and we are here for a reprieve of typical Monday feelings, are we not? We are here to stretch our imaginations which is pleasurable endeavor is it not? And if this is your first Monday here, please refer to the post “A” is for Alien to fully grasp what’s going on…or any of the other letter posts…
