Waiting for Spring

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I've been slightly on the depressed side today. I've been waiting all winter for Spring and the warmer weather to set in, and, wouldn't you know it, it's the first day of Spring and we have a 7 degree wind chill. I also heard from the local weather that we're expecting rain and snow all weekend long. emoticon I am wanting to get oustside so bad and do things like walk, and plant a garden but the cold weather makes me hurt so bad. I woke up this morning hardly able to walk because of my left knee and right hip. I did, however, manage to do 20 minutes of yoga stretching and I'm sitting here at the computer with a one pound weight doing arm exercises. Being totally inactive today is not in my plans. I'm pushing myself into being as active as possible,even if it means just getting up and rearranging my computer room, and housework in general. I do have my curtains open and I can see the sun shine, and the trees that are beginning to bud, and that in itself is giving me a sense of hope that warmer weather is upon us. I may not know exactly when, but it will be here eventually. emoticon

    emoticon Even though it's the first day of spring, I can't help feeling a little blue either, when I look out and there is still snow covering the ground. We've also had snow flurries and wind here today.

    I have chronic pain issue also, and you are right about the cold making pain worse.

    I'm with you on the impatience for spring. This time of year always gets me down. Although I love winter, I'm more than ready to be done with it. And I can't wait to get my hands dirty in my garden!

    And, like you, the weather man has played a nasty trick on us. We're under a winter storm watch, with 10 cm of snow expected overnight.

    Hopefully some nice weather will hit your neck of the woods soon. Keep your chin up. Take it one day at a time!
