Good morning. Tis wet and gray here today. The temperature is 37 F degrees and probably won't get much higher today. The rain isn't supposed to stop until shortly before noon tomorrow. According to my phone app, which of course isn't usually the most accurate. So we shall see.
Yesterday turned out to be quite the lazy day for Pogo and me. We napped and watched TV. Today though, it's back to "a project a day" for me. It doesn't matter what the project is as long as I do one. I'm trying to keep myself active and busy as much as I possibly can. At least during the cold weather where I don't get out so often.
I keep trying to get back to my crocheting, but for some reason it just isn't as much fun at the moment. I don't really understand this. Maybe it's because these last afghans are taking so long to finish? I don't usually like projects that take forever to finish. Of course, if I worked on them more often, they wouldn't take so long to finish.
Maybe this is just the winter/cold weather blues. It seems to happen every year right about now. Do any of you ever have this problem? I just looked this up on Google and it seems to be a common ailment this time of year.
It's known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). I copied a lot of printed material on this subject, but it's too long to print here. If anyone is interested, send me a request by email and I'll send it to you. (email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
A lot of it can be helped with vitamins C and D, and keeping busy with different projects. Today I'll check my vitamin stash to see what, if anything, I'm missing. Then I'll place an order on Amazon.
Today I have a Dover coloring page for you. Coloring is very soothing and relaxing and could possible help with the winter doldrums.
Now I'm going to refresh my cup of coffee and do a bit of blog reading before I pick a project for today. Before I go, let me share this picture that I borrowed from the web. This topic is near and dear to my heart. Even if you can't adopt or foster a doggie, maybe you could visit a shelter once in a while just to visit and play with the doggies there?
So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
