Enough already!

Anyone else sick of snow?  Storms?  After a beautiful day today, by 4:00 pm the wind and drifting started and we are supposed to get walloped again.  This time a charming mixture of rain and wet snow, along with 65 km/hr gusts of wind.  And I can tell you that the wind has started.  It's howling all around the house. I think Mother Nature is suffering from perimenopause.  I have some supplements that might help that.....one woman in that stage of life in this house is plenty :)

It's really difficult to hang onto positivity and light when this winter deal keeps dragging on and on.  We need a good thaw, and some sunshine.  Actually alot of sunshine.  If we just had some sun, we could plod through a little easier.  You with me on that one?

One little spot of goodness in this exhausting day?  Hubs left me a chocolate bar on my beside table.  Which I believe would be thoroughly enjoyable along with a couple episodes of my newest favourite tv show on dvd, Sons of Anarchy.  I'm addicted.

In other news, this is my 200th blog post.  Which is awesome.  And makes me wish I had something to give away.  But the only thing handy that I'd like to give away is my crappy winter attitude. No one wants that....and I'm working on being kind to others.  Not the best way to go about human kindness!

My bloggy friend Tina at http://thriftingwithcake.blogspot.ca/ shared this on her blog today.  I can't tell you how much I love it.  Thanks Tina!  (and I hope you don't mind.....)  My give away--go visit her blog.  She's a funny lady.  (and for some unknown reason, I can't centre the darned thing.  So be it.  I'm not in the mood to argue with technology today!)

And another one swiped from Girls on the Run facebook page (who by the way have a couple of chapters in Ontario but aren't adding any others currently, total bummer, I'd like to start it at my school)

These make me feel better about the snow situation.  But not nearly as good as spring and warm weather are going to make me feel.  Looking forward to runs outside (not a cold weather outdoor runner.  yuck), wearing a spring jacket and shoes and an all around feeling of general well-being that comes with nice weather.

So Ontario friends, batten down the hatches to get through this storm, and dream of spring with me.  And everyone else living in Snowmageddon (also referred to as the Snowpocalyse on a friend's fb page today), same to you.  Maybe if we all concentrate hard enough, we can make it happen.

I watched all four seasons of
" Son's of Anarchy" over my Yule break in one massive binge.My hubby had bought them for me as a gift. I LOVED them!! Can't wait to get the fifth season. Currently we are working our way through season two of " Game of Thrones".I think escapism is perhaps the only way to remain sane this winter!!
