It’s that time of year again. Wetness from day-after-day of rain, colder temperatures, an ugly and constant muddiness, a consistent and persistent cloudy sky. In sixteen days of this past mont, I saw the sun twice. Because I work at home, my two dogs have become my salvation to get outside. Otherwise, I would not go out at all. Well, besides them and having to go to the grocery store.
Yep, I have a case of log-cabin fever with a touch of the doldrums.
Are you feeling that way?
Not to be inappreciable with nature, I know some geographic areas are lots worse than mine – weather-wise. For instance, I have lived many many years on the East Coast of the continental U. S. A. and do not miss that weather! Although I do miss watching snow-falls and ice skating, I do not miss the cold temperatures (the lowest I have personally experienced was negative 23 degrees below Fahrenheit!). Nor do I miss that areas’ summer humidity. Having lived a few months in the south-eastern U. S., the humidity was so heavy that I contracted a fungal discoloration and disorder in my skin! I was medically told to treat that condition with Head & Shoulders shampoo, of all things. Are you familiar with that? I had to “smurf up” every day until it disappeared.
I need a physical ‘re-birthing’ with some sunshine. Spring allows me that grace. Summer is another story in this area of northern California where I reside. Having witnessed day-upon-day of temperatures above 105 degrees fahrenheit (the highest I lived through was 118 degrees), I think and remember the winter cold. Autumn is a welcome reprieve and my favorite time of year.
On and on we go.
How are you and your area’s weather?
