Winter Blues

I think I've got them real bad...the high of autumn and the start of a new season has faded fast. And now I am wallowing in dark mornings, and early nights. No energy, no time, no spark.

I have been writing in my journal daily. Doodles, and lyrics, and deep thoughts made pretty. I have been reading, and hanging out with Dude, and lighting candles, and going for coffee.

I have been doing and living, but the blogging bug is not biting.

Which is weird. For me, at least.

I thought I would try and get back in to the mood, or the swing of things, or what have you, by creating a "Better Late Than Never November List"

1. Have people over to my house....GASP....even if it's just Nadine & Cory! (or BFF)

2. Go for a coffee date with someone other than BFF (this one's going to be tough!)

3. Buy some Christmas gifts...make some too!

4. Make a baby shower gift.

5. Get all that JUNK out of my basement once and for all.

6. Go to the symphony.

7. Go to a movie (hello James Bond....)

8. Be the best Lakewood Community League Secretary & Office Helper I can be!

9. Plan one renovation and GET STARTED!

10. Make a mini album...or two...or ten! (I just bought some paper with this in mind...and I'm already feeling better about it!)

And that is that. We'll see what happens....

    If I were in Edmonton, I would scratch that coffee date right off that list for you. Also, I am dying to see the new James Bond. I just said that last night to Ian and he was like, 'Ick. Really!?' What a party pooper.

    Sorry to hear about your winter blues. I'll admit that I'm fighting them right now, myself. I even took a Vitamin D the other day, as a superstitious 'this will make me feel better' cure. I'll admit, it didn't do the trick, but at least I took action, right!? Right!?

    1. I drink loads of water with Vitamin C powder in it. LOADS!

      If I'm watching (recorded) tv with Russel, and the commercial comes on, I make him rewind it and go back so I can watch it all. I love James Bond....

  2. I am feeling the same way!! It's dark when I get home and I just want to put on my Pjs. I made myself go to the craft store this week to start a project to get out of the winter-is-coming funk. So far so good. And, there is felt everywhere. hah. Sending you some sunshine! xo

    1. I love felt projects! Especially in the winter....
