Mundane Monday Morning Music: Barenaked Ladies – “Pinch Me”

Mornin’ Readers!

Here in my neck of the woods of Canada’s capital, we are at the end of our Victoria Day Weekend. A great time was had by all of us, and I will be sad to see this day end. The time in our #backyardoasis has been fabulous, sneaking in naps was a welcome treat, and I can’t wait to visit the Canadian Tulip Festival which will ends today at Commissioner’s Park at Dow’s Lake. This is one of my favourite festivals to attend in Ottawa, and I want to see what new tulips have bloomed this year.

So, you’d think that since this is a long weekend that I would have taken advantage of sleeping in, right? Well, that was not the case for me today, unless you call being up at 6 am to tie up some loose ends before enjoying the day with the family sleeping in!ย  ๐Ÿ˜› If you have popped in to this feature on a long weekend Monday before, you would notice that for these editions, I like to take things a little easier than I usually do.ย  I like listening to a song that has a good beat, but is a bit more mellowed out (except for Labour Day Weekend, that ‘s a party day!). Since it is a Canadian holiday today , I thought I would choose a song from a Canadian artist. This week’s MMMM pick is “Pinch Me” from the Barenaked Ladies. Though this song is about depression, “Pinch Me” is great song for a day like today where all I want to do is kick my feet up and relax while I work from my laptop or my smartphone while we’re in our backyard, or taking some snapshots of some gorgeous flowers this morning. I am not ready to get back to the monotony of the work week just yet.ย  The beat is so dreamy and laid back, and the lyrics are fun to listen to while sipping on a fun drink and hanging out with friends in this gorgeous mid-spring weather.

I hope that “Pinch Me” does not wake you from your this fabulous dream weekend and helps you celebrate a relaxing day today! Cheers!

Until my next post, Readers!

    Great pick for today – it has that sort of lazy – amble along feeling that I hit around mid-day. We tried to hit a patio as a family – but rain. No worries, inside; nice meal; movie night later; I read a book. Great long weekend – hope you got some downtown despite being up so early!

      Thanks, Louise! I got to almost finish reading Memoirs of a Geisha again while running after kids, other family things and writing.

        That is a fabulous book. As for me – I finished The Ruby Circle (Richelle Mead) – so I’m now done another vampire series ๐Ÿ™‚
