Winter Winter Go Away

Is anyone else feeling like this? I'm so ready for spring and I see spring fever has hit big time all around blogland. The last few days I have felt blah - doing the same ol routine of work, laundry, cleaning, cooking - ahhh I want to scream! I can't wait for the sunshine and longer days. My energy and motivation seem to have a significant correlation with the sun and temperature levels. Do you feel like there are suddenly more hours in the day when the sun is out longer? I know there are 24 hours in a day no matter how you slice it but I feel like I can get so much more accomplished when I get home from work and still have daylight - I can cook, craft, run errands, see a movie, visit the local ice cream parlor - and on and on. During winter, I get home from work and want to jump on the couch and sleep - hmm, maybe I should consider hibernating next year!

I agree! I need spring! heehee I did about an hour of raking outside today in the cold... pretending it was sunny and warm out! lol

Natasha Burns said...

YES I agree wholeheartedly Karla!!! That's why I don't want Autumn and Winter to come here, I'm just not a fan, lol!
A few of our states don't do daylight savings, they just don't get it, and understand what can be achieved and how wonderful it feels!

Yes, hibernations sounds like a great idea but don't worry before long the blossoms will come. When I lived in Vancouver I would start my gardening in March but here the season doesn't start till May so I'm a bit ansy. I hit the garden centre and started planning anyway, buying seeds & doing some indoor gardening. It's helping get those spring ants out of my pants and cheered me up! If you're a gardener this might help hurry up spring a bit.

Bring on Spring! Yes, Karla, I do feel that I have more hours in the day with the daylight lasts longer. It is grey gloomy and rainy here today. Makes me want to go take a nap...
