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.
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.
