If you’re anything like me at all, you get kind of down on Sundays. I even wrote about it before. I really can’t explain it, because I don’t always have to work on Monday mornings, so it doesn’t really make any sense. Maybe it’s a remnant of my school years, when the mere sound of the opening tune of ‘Fantástico’ used to make me want to cry. I don’t even watch Globo anymore, but I still get this sinking feeling on Sunday afternoons…
That’s how I was feeling today when I remembered I once bought a great deck of cards that used to cheer me up when I was feeling like this. And after a few drawers had been emptied (maybe that’ wasn’t such a good idea after all), I found it: “52 Silly Things To Do When You are Blue”, a cute little deck of cards written by Lynn Gordon and illustrated by Susan Synarski. Ms. Gordon has written several wonderful books and decks of inspirational cards, that you can find and purchase here. Please pay a visit to this website and enjoy her work!
So when you get blue on Sunday afternoons, just drop by for some ideas on how to lift your spirits! (I’ll help you out with any difficult vocabulary)
to pamper = to treat with affectionate and usually excessive indulgence (Portuguese equivalent = mimar)
