It has been awhile since I tumblred a post, and as I sit here in a room with cats all around me, I can’t help thinking that I could be thought of as the crazy cat lady. With Beanie chillin’ in his favorite spot on the floor by my chair, Frankie on the back of my chair, Rubin and Chuy on the kitty condo…. Well you get the picture. And here we all sit in our cozy warm house, while it pours a cold hard rain outside.
I have been doing double duty the past couple of weeks trying to get moved into my new studio. We have made tons of progress, and I really love the feel of the place. I was going to go through some boxes today, but just never got in the mood. so I spent the time working on website issues and updating some of my product tags.
Today was the first day of winter for me. It has been raining off and on for a few days, but today I just stopped and looked out the window for a long time. I knew that this was it. The gray, cold damp days had come to stay and would not be leaving until sometime next spring. Oh we will get a sunny day here and there, and maybe a little warm spell. We will need it. Too much gray is not good for the soul. It may sound silly but I do not like to have to convince myself to move. I like to just go about my day on auto-pilot. The thought of doing an errand on a cold dark rainy day will have me looking for an excuse, a reason to stay indoors. A reason to not put on that coat, or get into a cold car, or move in the direction of discomfort. And that is what it is to me discomfort.
Give me my sunny warm days. They do not have to be perfect. They can be a little cool, breezy. They can even be hot, still and humid. As long as I do not have to feel that chill to my bone. Or a paralyzing shiver that will not go away.
