Some days

Can anyone else feel when the day's atmosphere changes?

I don't mean as in atmospheric pressure or anything like that, but the feeling of the day. Does anyone even know what I'm talking about? Or are you all shrugging and giving me weird looks like my husband does.

Sometimes, something will happen and the day will just feel different. For instance, Christian and I were shopping at a hardware store a while back and we walked outside to the garden section and were looking at plants. Some clouds passed in front of the sun and it went a little bit cold and then the sun started shining again and day felt different, almost uncomfortable.

I just can't explain it, how I know it feels.

Ok, I'll try it this way. Do you ever associate certain feelings with certain songs or memories? When we we kids, I remember getting an odd feeling about some Sundays. It always happened on a Sunday, Mum would be cooking corned silverside, it would be quite a warm day and Dad would be watching the AFL. I would wander around the house with an almost nauseus feeling in the pit of my stomach. It's much the same feeling.

Or there are some songs, usually songs from the eighties, that make me feel like that too. Like the Dire Straits song, Money for Nothing. The beginning of that makes me feel a bit depressed and a bit sick.

Anyway, it's probably just me. As I've said before, I'm a bit odd.

I can't be f*#ked editing that post, but I will apologise on here because it's a little disjointed. It ended quite abruptly too. So sorry if it doesn't 'flow' very well for your reading pleasure.

I have the same, Nettie. Something happens and the day changes. Sometimes you can name it, sometimes you cannot. And indeed songs, but also smells, can put you in certain moods.

Yup, sometimes happens with me, too. I've always thought it was just me!

I'm so glad that somebody knows what I'm talking about!!!

Sure, I know what you're talking about, Scarletmanuka. Especially about music; there are plenty of songs that I associate with either good or bad times in my life, and hearing one of those songs can change my mood. I can become quite depressed by music, if I let myself.

And yes, you are odd, but your oddness is just one of the traits that we love about you.

And why do I always seem to get letters for my word verification that are nearly illegible? Grrrrr!

Yup, Nettie. I too know what you mean.
