Winter Blues . . .


So is it me, or is anyone else feeling the winter blues and needing to get away?   Doesn't help I'm fighting the crud!  But I am so tired of the cold and feel a need to venture to warmer places.  Any suggestions that are reasonably priced, yet still luxurious?  Junking available would be a bonus :)  Calgon, take me away.....please?

PS  I'm trying to revamp my blog to a cleaner look.  Bare with my during the changes.  Any suggestions?

It's the lack of sunshine that is killing me!!! We had a couple of sunny days last week so the little dog and I sat out on the back porch sunning ourselves! It was still cold so I was hugging a cup of tea too! Can't wait to see you new pretty blog-I need help on mine! Hope you feel better!
Sending warm sunshine rays your way,

most totally, absolutely!! Winter is definitely hanging on & we need to at lease imagine warmth. Think hot sand between your toes & sunshine streaming down on your head!! But alas, we are stuck here in the northern tundra! Dreaming is still good. I think the farthest we'll get is WI Dells - which we'll pretend is a tropical getaway - they do have a spa hmmmmmm!! Wishing you warmth & spring inspiration (it will be here before we know it!)

Oh you're not the only one! Unfortunately I don't know of any great vaca. spots, but I've been finding myself sitting in the window with the sun streaming in each afternoon.

smiles, alice

Donna said...

Lani, I know what you mean! Give me warmth please! When Spring gets hear I don't think I will ever come inside! I want to soak up the sun. I just keep looking at everyone's blogs that live in Summer right now. I can dream of being there!

anywho...spring is near...just think of the piles of goodies people will be tossing out that we can soon ravage! :)

Sorry you aren't feeling well.
I am from Minnesota, too, but I like the hibernation energy of winter.
Maybe you could turn your bedroom into a "summer" room - close the door, light candles, turn on all the lamps for a warm glow, put art on the walls of flowers and beach scenes. . . that kind of thing. Then cozy in under those blankets and rest and dream. When you wake up, it will be summer!
I have a very wise 90 year old friend who always says that on cloudy days we must carry the sunshine in our hearts.
Take gentle care, darling!

I can certainly sympathize with you about the cold Minnesota winters--we live in Northern Minnesota about 60 miles south of the Canadian border where it's even colder that where you are!

Thankfully, I have a bright and cheery weaving studio and the in-floor radiant heat from the cement under my feet keeps things toasty and warm.

Also, this is a good time for me to be very productive INDOORS doing things I never have time for during the spring and summer months.

Right now, I too am in the process of changing my blog, only I'm going from very stark and blah to a more energized look. Although I think I'm over the top with too many "things" in the sidebars and might change from the 3-column back to the 2-columns.

Love your blog, so keep up the great work from one MN blogger to another!
