Well, it hit yesterday. I woke up and it was so quiet. I woke up and there was still snow on the ground. I woke up and it was still January. Ugh!
Does that sound depressing or what. Every year I anticipate the long month of January. I tell myself that this year it will be different. I'm going to stay energized and positive. All I have to do is get through January and I'll be OK. February is a short month, only twenty eight days, right? Then, March is here and we will hopefully begin to get a few days with signs of spring.
Spring! I WANT SPRING! I'm sick of these quiet, cold, white, cloudy gray days!!!
Yep. It's called Spring Fever and I have it! I get it every year around this time and it won't go away until spring comes. So, do I sulk around and feel sorry for myself, or do I fight it and just get moving? I chose the later. A couple hours of unexpected sun, a friendly phone conversation, and a night out with friends turned my day around.
Expecting another gray day I was excited to see as it became light out that the skies were clear! I was going to see the sun! So I thought I better take advantage of it get out there because I have not seen the sun in weeks!
Wow! What a great idea! It was so cold, but so beautiful! The shadows because of the bright sun were overwhelming with the many inches of snow covering the ground.
I took a few minutes to walk off the road a little deeper into this wooded area. I'm so glad I did! This tree was like a sculpture. The sunlight was hitting it just right. It made a perfect shadows of almost every branch on the fresh snow. Natures canvas for sure!
If you take a moment to look as the sun shines, this is a common view. Tall lean tree trunks cast these long beautiful shadows. A sight I never get tired of.
OK, I need to remind myself to personally "shut up" (I apologize for that word, but sometimes I need to be tough on myself). I can either feel sorry for my diagnoses of spring fever or "buck up " and change my attitude.
It's a new day! Look for some beauty!
