|Oh, how I wish this arrow pointed to a beach right outside my door.|
|Still somewhat alive and barely kicking after almost a year. Pretty good for me.|
I always have this naive idea that after the fun festivities and coziness of the holidays are over, it will magically be spring outside and time to break out the flip flops and let in the warm breezes. While I may try to delude myself into thinking that with my paradise sign and cacti in the window, alas, the outside world looks more like this....
Ugh, I know. It is nice to bundle up and have an excuse to stay in and watch TV, but I'm ready for sunnier days and not having to put on my giant parka every time I step outside.
It's kind of an in between time of year. You just had a blast celebrating, but now you have to wait to go outside again.
To me, it's the most uninspiring time of year. While some may argue they are re-energized for the year ahead, I find myself hibernating and waiting to be invigorated by the next season.
This is the only room in the house where we get a ton of sun. And it looks like it belongs in Key West, so I spend a lot of my time in here.
Oh, and this is also where Mr. Maisy does his thing. Eating loads of hay and such.
I've been crafting a little here and there and attempting to play the ukulele. I do have spurts where I clean out cabinets and purge my closet, too. I'm going to do more of that. I need to. In terms of blogging, though I haven't felt much in the inspiration department. It's hard to take pictures when your canvas is all brown.
Even writing this post, I'm not sure I'm conveying what I want to say in a coherent manner. I felt this way last year, though, and it passed. I just need to feel comfortable with the fact that this is my hibernation time.
And that's ok. It's better to let inspiration find you than to forcibly knock down it's door. I'm just going to enjoy this season for what it is, because I'm really looking forward to the next season and half of the fun is the anticipation, right?
The best thing is that we're experiencing a bit of a warming trend this weekend with temps in the 50s! I'm excited for that and for a 3 day weekend.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and remember that tulips and warm breezes are right around the corner. Well, not right around the corner, but you can at least see them a few blocks down:)
