Winter Doldrums

Friday, January 18, 2013

So, we are approaching the completion of the first month of winter... One month down and two to go... I'm tired! We've been dealing with single digit temps (yesterday morning it was -1!!) , a polluted inversion, and snow/ice covered roads. I find myself coughing when I enter this frigid outdoor world... poor lungs! On the flip side, the incredible beauty of the glistening snow covered trees makes it all seem worthwhile... for a moment, anyway. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm with you! I hate the cold and someday may want to live in a warmer climate! I also have reactive airways so I understand how you feel. Hang on, just a couple more months to go!

    The cold can be unbearable but the snow is always so beautiful!

    when it is not below freezing and the sun is out you have to get outside and walk for a couple miniutes . If it is too cold out i sit in the picture window and soak up the suns rays like a cat. I do my dvds that are on this site with the window shades up to lighten my mood. just walked the dog in the single digits glad i did better for me than for her . hugs winter is almost over

    Winter is somewhat a mixed blessing. Too cold to go out, too clean to stay inside. emoticon

    Snow makes everything prettier, plus it's interesting to see all the little footprints in the fresh snow.

Have you been getting enough Vitamin D? I find I'm super tired this time of year because even my supplements can't keep up. It's so hard when the sun sets before dinner.
