Casting May Out

Now that the month of May has almost ended and hopefully removed all  those awful feelings of melancholy I sat down today and thought about what I’d actually done during the month.

In a couple of words 
–  Not Much –
Foggy mornings like this didn’t help much 😦
Foggy morning

There was low cloud on The Dandenongs the day I nipped into Montose to get Kiera’s meat.  The tv masts weren’t visible at all and somehow I don’t think there was any sightseeing going on up there either!

To add to the wintery feel the car park tree had lost 90% of its leaves
making it look spindly and weak totally unlike its previous appearance

Apart from the garage clearout earlier in the month I spent most of my time in the armchair.  Reading – watching tv – knitting – oh and I had a trip to an armchair in the cinema.  Sounds miserable doesn’t it – but really, I did achieve quite a bit during my down time.  Books finished – some interesting programmes watched – more handknits finished.  All of which I’ll tell you about during the week.

What do you do when ‘life gets you down’ and there’s something heavy on your shoulders?

  1. If I knew how to deal with melancholia, I would bottle it and sell it for a million dollars. I guess my secret is to count my blessings, every one of them. When I do that, I feel so grateful to God for his many blessings.


  2. I do as you have done, potter at home, read watch movies and just be. It’s very good for the body and soul. xxx


  3. When I am feeling melancholy I heed advice given to me once ‘Let the world take a turn’ – for it’s usually a passing phase for me but also a chance to re-appraise and re-group. Talking to a good friend always helps and a book is good therapy. I so agree with the advice ‘Just be’.
