Sigh…I have a terminal case of the winter doldrums. The sky is gray and gray is not one of my favorite colors. The outside of my house was gray and I had it repainted – well it’s 3/4 repainted, but that’s another story.
The picture above is taken from my back door and shows just how gray and icky it is. No sunshine whatsoever. Blah. The wind is fierce. I have the thermostat turned up to 70 and I’m wearing several layers.
I knew I was in trouble when I signed in to my FaceBook page and the first thing I saw was a note from my Pastor about his current vacation on the Outer Banks. He’s excited about finding beach glass. I found a dirty juice glass. I’m not excited.
I leave FaceBook and go on Twitter to get a shot of fun and what do I get? A link from my buddy Virgil with info about nice, sunny, warm Savannah. Like the fool I am, I opened the link and my Doldrums suddenly got Doldrums of their own.
I read the article outloud to EmmaLou (I know, reading outloud to your dog is a definite sign you are in trouble)…and she perked up when I got to the part about Savannah having water fountains just for dogs. She barked and ran to get her portable doggie food/water dishes so I could pack them in the car. She’s doing the road trip dance. Flick. (aimed at her forehead…)
My SmartPhone is telling me that the current weather in my area is light snow and it’s 22 degrees. Had to download that app, didn’t I? Stupid AccuWeather. Oh great it just changed; now it’s cloudy. Crap on toast I can look out the window and see that for myself (turns off SmartPhone).
At least I have chocolate in the house. Otherwise I might be a goner…
Wake me when it’s Spring please.
