Case Of The Winter Blahs

It's snowing here...again...this morning, and the landscape matches the gray and dreary sky.

Isn't it amazing how things can get so out of whack so quickly when you get thrown out of your day to day routines?  I know that's true with our house. 

Since I burned my leg, the whole house has gotten out of hand.  Toys and books and magazines are everywhere, and so?

It's a straightening day for me today.

I think I am the only person in the house that really notices, but the clutter has begun to make me bonkers.  It may not be anywhere close to perfect when I get done with whatever I have the energy to do today, but it will at least be better than when I started.

It's the little victories, sometimes, isn't it?

But before I go to tackle the chaos, I wanted to leave all of you with something of beauty.  I loved this picture -- the colors are so vivid and full of life, just the antidote I needed for a case of the winter blahs.  Just gorgeous.

And a nice reminder of the days of sunshine just around the corner...

The picture is indeed beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with us.

My "blahs" are getting the upper hand, too, right now. I have been spending a few minutes each day dreaming over those seed catalogs you talked about recently. I am also giving my houseplants extra TLC to keep alive my dreams of warm weather.

Keep the faith, Christy, and heal on!
