I don’t know about you, but I can’t seem to get myself moving. I feel like I’m walking around in a daze. I am doing things that need doing, but kind of in a fog. I think it is the cold, overcast, gray days we’ve had lately. I definitely do better on bright, sunny days! Somehow it energizes me and makes me want to accomplish a lot. On dark, gray days, I just want to sit around and don’t feel like doing anything. I also don’t like cold – at all. I have been wanting to run to the grocery store for the last two days, but it is so cold outside that I just want to stay in, under a blanket.
Yesterday I saw an entire flock of Robins outside my kitchen window! There had to have been at least 40! I’ve never seen this many Robins together at the same time – maybe 10 max. I want to look up and read about them to see if this is the norm. It was really neat, though – a hint of the coming of Spring, even if a little early. I figured that they were probably heading back north after their winter away, but I don’t know.
Oh, there is news in the Great Honda Hunt – Jeff found a car and purchased it last Thursday. It was the quickest turnaround we’ve ever done on a car – praise the Lord! He has even sold his car already for more than the salvage shop was offering. Here is a picture of the new one:
I haven’t gotten to drive it yet, but I know that Jeff is enjoying it!
I’ve been reading various blogs around the net lately that deal with making our homes a haven for our families. These have been so inspiring to me, as this is one thing that I feel in my heart that we are called to do as wives and mothers. I hope to post more in the coming weeks about this subject, as I explore thoughts and ideas. Not today, though – my brain is too fuzzy – maybe the sun will come out tomorrow!
