My 365 photo for today. The winter blues are in so much more than my scarf and gloves. Winter is my least favorite season of the year and we are only in the beginning. It’s cold. Colder than usual around here. We’ve had snow. More snow than usual this year. Snow is good, except when you have to go to work in it and kids get called off school because of it. Skin is dry and itchy. Furnace is running non-stop. Wind is blowing non-stop. It’s dark in the mornings and the evenings. I’m sleeping more than ever, but still tired. Being stuck in the house because it’s wicked outside leaves you feeling a bit isolated. I haven’t had much urge to write, or read, or do much of anything, but still I pick up the camera each day and shoot this 365. It’s a good project.
Perhaps it’s the darkness. Or the cold. Or the post-Christmas letdown. Whatever it is, I’ve got the blues. I want to nestle myself in and hibernate through it. Wake me up when it’s warm and I can take off these layers, slip back into a summer dress and eat fresh vegetables again.
