to see if anyone gets the blues from little or no sunshine.
Normally I do not but this time I figured I was sick anyway
so I bundled up and hauled my sorry ass outside to a frosty
cold recycled green plastic garden chair and sat in the sporadic
sunshine that filtered through the clouds and It felt so good
to have warmth on my face.
I pondered on how it felt for some folk to feel the need of light
and how depressed they were not to get sunlight. I never had this problem.
I hear that it is quite serious for some and I thank my lucky stars I can find almost
anything to jolt me to happy thoughts. How about you..do the winter blues "bug" you?
What are "winter blues"? Nobody here has ever seen snow nor really cold temperatures. Way up in the mountains you will need a jacket in the night but here in Rio Claro I can run around my yard in the buff at 3 am.
show off being in the nice warm climate
how you doing? getting into trouble?
Cooking up a great meal?
I am still sick but getting better
it will pass
so do you have any season changes there
I wish I were walking around in shorts & top
barefoot and soaking the sun rays just for warmth
when I lived in Havasu you had to use a lot of sunscreen
or look like shoe leather but I still love the warm ( not frying) sunshine
im lived in a cabin at 3,000 feet for 9 years
there was snow on the ground 6 months at a time
husband and I did not get cabin fever
we were both luck with this as we had many snow or work activities outside
at night we read a lot or friends came up
cabin fever is real and not at all fun for some
One could presume that living in the tropics precludes "cabin fever". Ooooooooh NO! When the temperatures average in the upper 90's, nobody wants to walk around in the sun. We stay in our houses or patios glued to the fans. Even my chickens hang out under our trees.
i know exactly how you feel
when in Lake Havasu City the temp rose to 129 and that evening when it was only 98
and the boys were all miles away skateboarding we women took everything off and plunged into the pool...our towels were near and not much light for nosy neighbors to look over an 8 foot board fence
luvy so glad the seasons do not bother you
normally I do not get knocked down with a sledge hammer
I got the flu and it went away in less than a week
people came into my life again and gave it to me again
they were just as sick or worst than me
i felt sorry for the little three year old too
but she braved it through with flying colors
the first time I saw the northern lights it was an incredible sight
they are beautiful
the lights I saw were many hues of green and a sulfurous yellow
Julia, sometimes I have just the opposite reaction to the sun. Today I wanted to walk to the pueblo but it was too bloody hot.
Scott I used an umbrella when walking in the sun in Lake Havasu City
Get well soon Julia. and don't hurry up and start doing too much because I've heard that it can come back at you and then it's worse.
Love that picture that Craig placed. Very beautiful Thanks Craig.
I'm on the mend but the little boy my neighbor cares for is in the hospital with pneumonia right now
