Hello, Sun!

I woke up this morning to sunshine streaming in to my beautiful bay windows.  Mmmm.  Finally.

I live in Colorado where the sun shines most days, so I really shouldn’t be complaining, but we had six days in a row of icky weather.  Gray, rainy, windy days.  It does a number on my psyche.  Actually, we had a brief respite on Friday but it didn’t last long enough and I’ve been grouchy and then sad.  It’s amazing how deeply this affects me.

I try to cheer myself up about it by dressing cute.  I tell myself “Well, you can wear a cute long sleeved shirt and then one of your bright spring scarves.”  And sometimes that will do the trick, but not for six days in a row.

So I’m not going to sit here any longer.  I’m going out to start raking my yard so that I can re-seed.  “I’m gonna clear my head, I’m gonna drink that sun.” (Indigo Girls).

  2. Nope. Just right. Bwahaha. No wardrobe malfunctions today. Phew.
