Winter BLAHS!

I've really got the winter blahs today, it's really windy, cold, and now the freezing rain they predicted is here. I can here it hitting the window...........depressing! So, I was going through some cd's yesterday, and looking back on some of the pics I took this summer, and thought we could all maybe use a little bit of summer color to cheer us up!

*enter smell-o-vision here!* I can almost smell the fresh cut lawn, and the strong spring smell of the lilacs from the front yard!

Enjoy.......









Picture a warm spring day, the rolling thunder, and the lightening, breath in the way it smells after a storm, the way the sky looks pea green, and then the rainbow to brighten everything with its colors............WINTER........what winter!

Re: Winter BLAHS!

Thank you, Geri, that was just what the doctor ordered! Those pictures are absolutely gorgeous! I like the bee best. No, maybe the rainbow. Or the lilac....

Re: Winter BLAHS!

Wow! Stunning pictures. The last one is my new desktop picture.

They're so crisp and clear - especially the butterfly.

Re: Winter BLAHS!

Great pics! Where are you from? I'm in the Chicagoland area, and the weather stinks here too. I've been here my entire life, so I'm used to it. When it's cold and yucky there are a few things that I've found always cheer me up or make me forget the weather:

Playing with the kitties! What could be better?
Curling up on the couch for a movie.
Going to the gym for a good sweaty run. It's nice to actually be hot wearing a tank top when it's single digits or lower outside.

Me too...sigh! If I want to cheer up, I sit outside in the sun and look at the flowers and the hummingbirds. It always works. Lovely pictures, Geri!

Re: Winter BLAHS!

Ahh, so you're just one state and sometimes feet of snow away from me. My husband and I have actually thought very hard about relocating to northern Wisconsin, the Vilas county area with lots of lakes and snow. We feel like we don't get enough snow here, and we want to be able to snowmobile, snowshoe, cross country ski, and basically have snow all winter long. I know it's not for everyone though!

I must say, the fishing up there is the best!

Re: Winter BLAHS!

The weather's very dry and mild here in old D.C., but I'm with you on the "winter blahs"! Maybe it's because the trees are bare and darkness comes so early. I know that I'd feel much better if I'd get my lazy butt to the health club -- there's nothing like a good workout to clear the cobwebs -- but I'm too BLAH to get out and go!

Speaking of D.C., did you read that the Obamas have already moved here? School begins tomorrow for those two beautiful little girls, so the family had to take up temporary residency in a hotel.
