Let the Temperature Rise!

So, this is not an official diagnosis.

I haven't seen a doctor about it but I'm pretty sure the cold weather is bad for my emotional health.   I pretty much hibernate.  I watch a lot of TV, lay around a lot more and pine away for a warm spring breeze.

I try to keep my house clean - it helps. I keep plenty of birdfood in the feeders to see the bright colors of the Cardinals and woodpeckers. I listen to music that I love. I pray and read my bible. I still get sad, though. It's almost as if I have to force myself to get things done.

But once the mercury starts to rise, so does my mood.   Just being outside today made me want to start gardening. Of course, I know it's too early to do that but I was able to do some clean up around the yard.  I  trimmed back bushes, picked up doggie-doo from the yard, took the lights out of the bushes (they've been off for two weeks - just not removed) and swept out the garage.  I even cleaned out my van. Wow.  Basically, a winter of trash and the kids belongings came out of my vehicle today.  

But oh it feels so good!

So, I say let the temperature rise!   Enough Winter.   Too much to ask on January 14?

Also, I need to state here on the blog that I officially love my 12 year old Kenmore washer.  Why?  Because it's working now!  It was broken early in the week.  I did dream just a little bit about a new one but really was relieved when the serviceman came out and fixed it all for $60! 

I'm happy to see the weekend come even though with the kids tracked out, it seems like we've been on one long 4-week weekend.     No big plans except to hopefully go to a fundraiser at the Oxford Restaurant for the earthquake in Haiti.

Our Worship Director and some of our band have another band called the Band of Brothers.  They play classic rock - and they play it well.   Some of the best covers you will ever hear.  The $5 cover goes straight to the Hope for Haiti Foundation and 10% of the sales from the Oxford, Sona and Mura restaurants on Sunday will go to the foundation as well.    So, if you eat out this weekend, make it on Sunday and go to one of these restaurants to help this good cause.

Maybe I'll see you there!

Enough of winter.

Ready for warmer weather and more daylight.

A trip to the beach would be nice!

Sweet dreams.
