March came in like a Lamb.....hmmmm

The calendar pages have been turned…another month has started up. The old saying is that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb….well, it came in like a lamb, wonder if that means it will go out like a LION. Today is just striking. The sky is a gorgeous blue with fluffy white clouds and the sun is WARM and brilliant. Its still cold…25 degrees now….and at least 8 inches of snow covers everything. We had even more snow last night. But today, I guess just because its another month, I feel like winter is slowly receding. And that makes me want to do the Snoopy Dance.

Today I’m like a cat. After pouring myself a generous mug of coffee this morning, I grabbed a Danish and my book and headed for the chair right by the window that lets the sunshine inside. My cat used to always find that spot of sunshine and lay in it….today I remind myself of her. I need to soak up the sun’s rays. Too many cloudy, dreary days adversely affected me. If it were practical, I would invest in one of those portable light boxes...which simulates sunshine.

So finally I have a much better outlook on things and have reminded myself that getting frustrated over things in which I cannot control is just fruitless. That said…everyone enjoy your day. Make some great memories and tell someone you love them today!

25 degrees! That's making my toes cold just thinking about it!

Enjoy your patch of sunlight. I started taking fish oil this year - there's a rumor that it helps with the winter blahs. I think it did some good.

Hey Val - I love you! Have a good day!

Enjoy your moment in the sunshine while it lasts Val. We are still having some very warm days here but the mornings and evenings are getting cooler and I have a feeling Autumn is not far away. Yippee!!!

Time really flies, doesn't it?
Soon summer will come, then fall, then another winter...
Arh I get so cranky by just thinking that.

Hope you have a good week ahead.
