In the depths of winter...



It's been awhile since I posted...I wish I could say
'wow...time flew' but I can't- it doesn't.
This time of year, time more like stands still. I've been somewhat inflicted with the winter blahs...the kind where you don't feel like doing anything.
I cook, and we eat..then I cook again...and we eat again...this seems to be the routine as of late. It's getting old. Hurry spring...my waisteline depends upon your timely arrival!
I'm hoping the next week will be better than the last. In my mind I've so many things to get doing- but no get-up-and-go to do them with.
Perhaps next week will be better. I'm thinking of starting some seeds indoors just so I can feel some dirt on my fingers...that is always comforting for me. Today I'm going to pick up a Lilac scented candle...the aroma might just do the trick.

I think we all have the winter blah's, Paula...it goes with the territory, so to speak. We had a little sun yeaterday and I felt fantastic. And I am with you on the cooking and eating thing...it's hard to stay out of the kitchen.

Enjoy your candle. It sounds like a sweet idea.

XO,
Jane

It's been very warm here, it finally cooled down yesterday but I still wore shorts. I'm actually praying for some rain and some clouds so I can nest:) I'll send you some sun!

Hello Paula
I know how you feel. February and March are the months most difficult for me. Have a lot to look forward to this year. Traveling again to Victoria to visit family and then Later to Ireland, Pembrokeshire, Paris,Venice and Florence. This will definately be the longest vacation I've ever had.

Hope you have events to look forward to this year.

Have a sunny day!

Paula, Try to get 15 minutes of sunshine midday. It may help with the blahs.
