Winter Blues

January 3, 2012

Now that the holidays are over I really don't want to look at the snow anymore. Snow is only pretty for a day or so and only if I don't have to worry about anyone driving in it. Also I don't want to look at any more Christmas decorations. As soon as the snow melts I'll be unplugging the outdoor lights. Every other vestige of Christmas is gone.

And it is soooo cold this week. I hate the cold. Every year at this time I wonder why I live in New England. But the thought of living down south never appealed to me and California is too far away. So I guess I'll have to put up with hibernation for a few more years. Thankfully I will be in Thailand for a few weeks to get me through the winter months. A few days of R&R at the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok after the mission should get me through February and March!

Ahhh. February and March. Especially March. So depressing! Still cold, damp and dreary. And some people STILL have their decorations up. Why? Take them down. It's so irritating to see Christmas lights and santas still glowing in March.

So in case it's not obvious I am really looking forward to spring. I can't wait to see everything in bloom. Especially the new daffodils I planted this fall to commemorate my survival. In the meantime I will try to stay warm until April.

  1. There's a Mandarin Oriental in Barcelona. Now that's chasing the Winter Blues away.
