The Gray Days

Oh the gray days, they are a-loomin'.
Yesterday afternoon the clouds shifted and it suddenly was very dark in the house. In the middle of the day. With no rain. Am I the only one dreading the winter?
I'm not trying to be negative but man I hate that January-February-March/when will it end?- time of year.

Any tips for keeping the dreariness only on the outside this winter? I keep all the blinds open and ignore the electricity bill turn on lots of lights. That seems to make me feel a little better.

I guess I've just been so happy lately that I don't want something as uncontrollable as the weather to come along and knock me down.
Maybe I'll be able to fight it with some silliness.

And try to laugh as much as possible.

Now that I think about it, with two children in the house, I think this winter will be much more colorful.

What sweet faces! I agree that you will have a colorful winter with those two cuties around. To keep it a little brighter in my house I buy indoor plants. I always end up killing them (which is depressing) but they make me happy for a short while.
