A cure for the winter blahs

All it takes to get rid of the winter blahs are a few simple things.
  • A wonderfully balmy day where it gets into the 70s
  • My first daffodil bloomed
  • I got to get out in our tiny garden and do a bit of weeding
  • Yarn came in the mail today
  • My husband had a half day at work so I got to run all the errands that had been bugging me all week with out having to drag the kids with me. (Mom, your chocolate is finally in the mail)
  • Driving with the windows open
  • Having the computer that had been acting very wonky fixed by my super sexy tech support guy aka my husband
  • Spending the evening with friends that I had not seen in months. I went to the baby shower of a friend of mine that moved away. It was so great getting out of the house on my own and getting to scare (just kidding) a first time mother to be.
Now all I have to do is finish my laundry so that we can pack for out trip. We are leaving tomorrow so I have plenty of time, right?

I just wanted to let all your loyal readers know that your sainted mother sent that yarn and planted those daffodils. (Not to toot my own horn or anything like that- Im still as humble as ever)

This post made me smile :). 70 degree temps? I'm jealous! We're having a high of about 35 today ~ yippee! Never mind all the snow and ice that is covering the ground everywhere you step or drive :(. I sure could use an hour in my garden right about now to cure my winter blahs.

Yay for getting to do errands, for sure!

And yay also for trips, hope it goes well. :)

I don't mind that it's still in the 30s. I'm not even jealous that you've got warm weather.

I'm just tired of seeing all the dirty snow. And a daffodil or two would be nice.

We should get crocus in about a month.

Glad you had such a great day!

I'm so out of it, I didn't know you were going on a trip! Or did I?
