This is our winter to pay the dues for the past three years when we escaped most of winter's wrath!
We received another 9 inches of the white stuff and now we are in the deep freeze. No chance of warm up in sight. To say I am miserable is putting it mildly. What is it again about winter that those of you who "love" it attracts you? I just don't get it!
Things are moving along here, feeling better, toes healing. They take a long time, according to the doctor, I had no idea exactly how long. I need to go back in six weeks for an x-ray. Walking is fine and so is driving, so I consider myself very blessed as the fall I took could have been a whole lot worse. (Shudder!)
I find it hard to make plans this time of year, especially the way the weather is this year with the "polar vortex". Then of course, we leave that behind in time for "El Niño". Why can't weather just go back to the way it was? No fancy names, no fancy excuses, no naming of storms. It just adds to the obnoxiousness. It is winter in the northern climates, that is all!
I saw the film August: Osage County this week. Of course, exceptional acting by Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. The entire cast was excellent. But a deep dark heavy drama that leaves you hanging at the end. Hate movies like that. Save your money, maybe catch it on Netflix.
I have lots of projects sitting around, clamoring for my attention. I pretend not to see them. I did more de-cluttering at the end of the year. I need to concentrate on the bedrooms, and my store room.
Sometimes when the weather is beautiful, I find myself in the mood to go through papers and files and shred! Now I am a prisoner in my own home and all I want to do is drive to New Jersey! You would think I would pull out the wool I bought in the summer (yup) and crochet something, but no, I pace and go from one window to the next. I need Tony Robbins to come here personally to motivate me.
Hope you are all doing great, staying warm if you are in a northern place. I wish I had some gardening catalogs to thumb through.
