Since the beginning of February, we have had snow, ice, temperatures below zero, more snow and high winds.
I’m not sure if it’s the bitter cold temperatures or all the snow we’ve been having, but I have been lolling about, not accomplishing much of anything this past week. I had very good intentions about starting a few different projects but never seemed to get around to them. Even my latest issue of Where Women Create Businesses, which I always look forward to reading, was skimmed through and put on the side.
If truth be told, I’ve been watching a lot of past season episodes of Parenthood. I was reading about it somewhere and thought I’d check it out on Amazon. I started with season one and quickly became hooked. I’d promise myself I’d just watch one and then think, “just one more.” I just love it, but I decided to limit myself to just one or two episodes a day and get on with my life. It’s really been a great way to spend these icy cold days, when I don’t want to leave the house.
It’s also been a great time for comfort foods. I’ve made soup a few times – I never get tired of soup – hot oatmeal for breakfast with nuts, raisons and cinnamon and some homemade quick breads. I will also admit to eating my fair share of chocolate on Valentines Day. It was a holiday, I told myself, so have another piece.
I must confess to daydreaming a bit about spring. I’m a strong believer in living in the moment and really enjoying each day as it comes but I have to admit the thought of making plans without worrying about road conditions or being snowed in is beginning to sound appealing. It will all happen soon enough though and in the meantime I’ll just enjoy what is. How about you? Are you enjoying the moment or doing a bit of spring daydreaming of your own?
Hope you’re having a great day, no matter what the weather is where you are!
