Sleepy Muggy Mondays

It’s one of those gray, drizzly, humid Mondays, and some of us are having a tough time keeping our eyes open.

Just when you think you’re feeling a bit of energy, those eyelids start to get veeeerrry droopy…

Wait a minute, I think she just moved!


Just my imagination.

My sleepy Tink.  ❤



Squirreling Thru’ Monday

I met the cutest little fellow on my walk today.

ForestBeachLoop851F-2-BlogHe was chasing another squirrel – a female, I presume – up and down a great oak tree. Round and around, up and down the tree they went, head to tail, so close it looked like one squirrel instead of two!

And then suddenly – he came back down the tree. And stopped.

ForestBeachLoop851D-BlogPerhaps he had heard me fumbling with my camera?

When I looked through the camera this time, he was looking straight at me.

ForestBeachLoop851-BlogNow everyone knows it’s only polite to say hello if you meet a squirrel who seems friendly.

“Well hello there!” I began. “And how are you this fine day, would you mind if I took your picture?”

And the squirrel turned slightly, as if to give me his best side.

“Why no, I’d be happy to,” he replied. “How’s this?”

ForestBeachLoop851C-BlogI continued to snap a few more pictures, amazed by how patient he was, how accommodating.

“I say,” he went on, “Do you happen to know what day this is? It’s still Sunday, isn’t it? I have ever so many things I’d love to do today!”

ForestBeachLoop851E-BlogAnd before I could stop myself I responded, “Why no, Mr. Squirrel, today is Monday.”

No sooner were the words out of my mouth than I remembered: Squirrels HATE Mondays.

And without a word – poof! My squirrel friend was gone.

ForestBeachLoop851F-BlogSigh… It was my own fault that such a delightful photo session had so abruptly come to an end.

And I knew better.  😉

The Purrrfect Pep Talk

That’s my girl.

Short and sweet, all puns intended, she always gives me just the Monday morning pep talk that I need…


Thanks, Marms!   ❤

Hope you have a good Monday everybody!


Monday Morning Helper

Monday mornings are always hectic here at MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®.

Lots of emails to answer, hats to ship out, and a heap of filing, oh MY.

But I never fret because my Marmee is always there, ready to help, eyes a-twinkling!


In fact, one of her beds is right in front of the filing cabinet, making it an easy reach for her.

She washes her paws, and gets ready to begin…


And… well, er…


Ah well… It seems my little helper has worn herself out already.

Shhhhh… Don’t disturb her. I’m sure she’ll get to it later, aren’t you??


Thanks for visiting us here at Images of Cape Cod for Marmee Monday!



The Purrfect Recipe for Mondays

We could all use a little encouragement, a bit of advice on how to make our Mondays less tough to take.

We asked our resident Mondays expert what her secret is for the perfect Monday.

This was her response…







Pretty much purrrfect…

Don’t you think?
