Beating the Winter Blues

It's fun for a while, all this wintery stuff. Putting on the warm sweaters and fuzzy socks, snuggling with hubby under a warm blanket, drinking hot chocolate and tea, baking sweet potato pies and such. It's festive during the holidays but somewhere between late January and mid February the winter blues inevitably rev up. The cold and snow have gone on way too long and Spring still seems pretty far away.

This year has been especially tough, what with the polar vortex, more snow than usual and wind storm after wind storm exacerbating both. Here is what I've been doing this year to get me through it:

Putting puzzles together 

Crocheting a warm throw blanket

Snuggle, play and admire this little girl

Reading, eating yummy baked treats and drinking hot beverages
Of course, nothing works quite as well as the arrival of Spring - fingers crossed it comes in March this year.
