I never have understood, if February’s the shortest month of the year, why does it seem so long?
We’ve had a lot of rain the last couple of weeks, and yes, some snow, but mostly the temperature has hovered just above freezing. Warm enough to melt the snow, but cold enough to do it very slo-owly. I’m ready for this lingering patch in front of the porch to just go away. I’m resigned to the fact that the snow-plow pile across the street will be with us a good while longer.
In the meantime, I’m finding cozy things inside the house to try to keep my spirits up as I battle the winter doldrums.
These are a few of my favorite things:
How’s that for alliteration?
…a caramel latte made for me by my sweet daughter
in my favorite Valentine mug…
my bullet journal… my journaling Bible… the pens I got for Christmas…
my Kindle… and a cranberry candle…
…blooming plants… a gift from a friend… cut tulips I bought for myself…
…the potted azalea and rose plants I found on clearance after Valentines Day…
…a fun vest I crocheted in cotton thread in spring colors…
…the zipper sweater I’m currently working on in more muted colors…
…two of the good books I’ve read recently…
What do you find helps with the Winter Doldrums?
Or does winter not bother you?
“While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
Cold and heat,
Winter and summer,
And day and night
Shall not cease.”
