in overcoming the sunday blues...




...i suggest flowers.

above all else, flowers.

but if that alone does not do it, i offer the following:

essie nail polish in raspberry
this beirut video (god bless zach's curly hair)
pinning your hair in feux-bob and allowing yourself a few minutes to seriously contemplate chopping it all off.
trip to the grocery store for cheese and cuties (clementines).

what do you suggest? please, oh please, do tell.

dvr-ed episodes of fraser... jk.

sunday blues are overcome by a long walk in the afternoon, a glorious home cooked dinner and talking on the phone until late with my sister.

for my Sunday blues? I blast oldies and dance around the house. Preferably with a wooden spoon acting as a microphone.

And then I eat cookies.

Meg Fee said...

very good suggestions ladies!

I am all about the warm tea and a movie to cure the sunday blues.
Cookies help, too.

- French manicures.
- Cranberry juice mixed with sprite.
- Upbeat music you can turn up loud.
- A funny movie.
- A good book.
- Texting a friend.
- Plan out your week.
- Take a nap.
- Laugh until it hurts.

Audrey Hepburn comedies (or any '50s/'60s comedy).
I like "Nantes" too ;)

tonight we cooked up a shrimp feast and now we're watching "The Secret" which is always motivational and reminds me to be grateful for every second.

I love Beirut. Zach, unlike my other dreamy indie crushes, has stayed with me for a long long time. Three years. (Wait a second. Three years? Seriously? I only just realised that!)

I combat the Sunday blues with a bit of bossa nova and letter-writing.

Sunday night blues are the worst. I got them really bad when I was a teacher. They were more like the mean reds, as Holly Golightly might say.

My vote? Host a dinner party. Invite 4 of your favorite people over. Cook up a storm. Eat until you're laying on your sofa like a fat dog. If that doesn't help, I don't know what will.

there have been multiple studies that say just looking at fresh flowers considerably boosts your mood... you are on the right track! kiwi and i eat cuties by the handful... it's getting a little ridiculous how much we love them. no vitamin c deficiency in our house!

for the sunday blues i like to sit out on our patio in the sun with a good book and a cup of coffee. never fails.

beautiful flowers!!

I suggest Swiss Rolls eaten slowwwwwwwwly. :)

brew a pot of tea. sit down and savor it, with milk and honey if you like.

yes, flowers. i recommend ranunculus this time of year.

music by the brunettes. always upbeat with just a touch of zaniness. right now i can't get enough of "if you were alien."

a home-cooked meal or delicious food ordered in with a glass of wine and a friend.

a good book. i'm reading winds of war right now.

be spontaneous. see a matinee with a friend. go out to brunch. visit the union square farmer's market.

i painted my nails essie's guchi muchi puchi last night. the name alone brings a smile to my face and the cheerful color is a reminder to chin up throughout the week.

loved your list. it chased away my monday blues.

chat with a friend.

take a nap.

clean my room while listening to music. (if the blues aren't too blue. sometimes I cannot muster up the strength to clean).

read some scriptures.
