THE DREARY DAY BLUES....


Today has been one of those days when the blahs have set the tone for the entire day. I concluded earlier that the amount of cloud cover and rain we've had of late has been a huge contributor to my current mood. I've spent the better part of the day wishing for an early Spring to help lift my spirits.
There's just something about sunshine & weekends that make for a good combination. Most would argue in light of the football playoffs, that this weekend provided the perfect kind of weather for taking in all the televised games. After the Panthers loss on Saturday night, it's difficult for me to find solace in the arms of the Steelers or the Eagles at this point.


Then there are those who would argue that today was a perfect day for curling up with a blanket and a good book and just reading the day away to help combat the dreary weather outside. Does going to the library and checking out a book that I have yet to sit down to read count?

Or maybe some would say that its been a good day for doing nothing but sleeping the day away. Laundry prevailed over sleep today, I'm afraid.

So, if not taking in one of the above recommendations on a day like today, what does one do? Well, I think I may have just found the perfect solution...coffee!! I think I'll go brew me a soothing pot of coffee and allow its rich, robust flavor to take all the dreariness of this day away! I feel better already!

I don't like the rain either. Here at the moment in Belgium it is very cold. I don't like the cold. I would prefer to sit outside with my stitching projects. I'm really looking forward to the summer.

I like the pot of coffee instead of the laundry but I was with you yesterday. Finished cleaning out the Christmas decorations, cleaned up, did laundry, cleaned up after the rugrats again, watched some football as I folded clothes. A good pot of coffee and my stitching would have been the perfect day but.....LOL

I'm totally with you about the Panthers. Then the Chargers lost (Philip Rivers - former NC State q-back) and now I don't care about any teams left. :( Oh well - just hope it's a good game. Hope you have better weather. The one time of year I'd actually like it to be cloudy (not rainy) is when it's below freezing. We're getting our first days later this week, and wouldn't you know the sun is going to be shining! Guess there will be no snow... this time LOL - Hope springs eternal!
