Take me somewhere colder, please.

The first day of Spring was last week and while it's still relatively cold here, you can feel the essence of Spring beaming on you from the sun during the peak of most days. Everyone I know is fired up over warmer days, enthusiastic about the longer lasting daylight and the prospect of our landscape coming alive again.

Everyone but me.

Don't get me wrong, Spring is pretty and it's more tolerable than Summer at least (which I loathe like the plague). But I'm a Fall/Winter girl. It's like I have the opposite of seasonal depression. I'm my happiest, most productive self when it's cold outside. So when the weather starts to show signs of change into Spring/Summer, mentally I start to drift into dark places. And I hate it.

It's especially bad here in MD because our colder months are shorter than our warmer months and those warmer months go from freezing cold to blazing heat almost overnight. There's not really a gradual shift from Winter to Summer where Spring should exist. It's disappointing.

Anyway, needless to say, my mood hasn't been all that stellar lately. My sleep schedule is still out of whack thanks to Daylights Savings and the warmer days have left me mourning over Winter's passing. So imagine my surprise and delight when I woke up to this today:

It's like Winter said, "Take that, Spring!" And I totally cheered it on all day long. I know it won't last. The temperature will continue to creep into warmer days, but it felt so good to get one last great cold day, full of snow, before I had to truly say goodbye to my favorite season(s) of the year.

    I’m with you. If a winter passes without seriously freezing temps and lots of snow, I’m not a happy girl.

      You don’t know how refreshing it is to hear I’m not alone in this. Everyone seriously looks at me like I belong in an insane asylum whenever I go on about my love for colder weather.

    Spring/Summer is definitely making its mark fast, so I’m glad that you got a snow day like this before the last signs of winter are gone completely! Your picture is so pretty… :)

      Thanks! I took more, but it was 7am so it was still pretty dark outside. This was the best I could do. FYI – it completely melted by the next morning, but it was so lovely to have it happen one last time. :)

    Ebooks definitely aren’t for everyone, but I love them, so I sometimes feel defensive when the topic comes up. I’ve had people tell me to my face that me buying a Kindle is causing bookstores to die, and it’s like, are you kidding me?! Printed books have been around for ages, and will continue to be here for ages more. People seem to think that printed books are becoming outmoded like records and VHS tapes, but if anything, ebooks will be what falls prey to that fate…

    As for my March, I managed to complete fourteen pieces of art. Only ten of those were EE strips, so…I’m disappointed. (I try to complete at least 12 EE strips a month, since that’s a month’s worth. Don’t want my buffer to dwindle to nothing!)
