Sunshine Makes a Good Day

I woke up to a sunny morning. Somehow it make it so much easier to get out of bed. It is like a grand electrical switch in my mind clicks to the on position. Go ahead, throw the day at me. I’m ready for it. As someone who never quite knows how she’ll get through February (or August in the southern hemisphere), arriving at the first March day (or September down under) with sunshine makes me smile.

I made it through February! Spring is around the corner. The bulbs we planted, fortified with big drinks of water from the melting snow will begin to shyly raise their heads and bloom. Gardening season is close at hand.

Does the lack of sun in winter months affect you? What do you look forward to in spring?

Happy Manic Monday! –Rebecca
