i am here

can you tell it is february?
i feel so quiet.
i also feel like hibernating til we see some serious spring.
that would be a long nap eh?
not feeling motivated to do much of anything it seems these days except for bake, eat, stay up too late, regret it in the morning, repeat.
we still have well over a foot of hard crusted icy snow all around. i did chip half the ice off the driveway on those 2 fleeting "warm" days we just had.
don't get me wrong, i am not feeling sorry for myself, i am just stating what is.
winter eventually wears me down. this winter has been brutally cold. this morning it is 17 degrees, feels like 1. ouch.
cabin fever
call it what you may, i call it february.
i am always happy to see it off, but then march seems forever long too...
i need a hot steamy tea right now. (off to brew a pot)
i guess i'll go bake and listen to more of my fave boys. they have some wise winter words...

"And if your strife strikes at your sleep.
Remember spring swaps snow for leaves.
You'll be happy and wholesome again,
When the city clears and sun ascends"

I think we were both on the same wave length yesterday. I have a very similar post :P

You could always go jump in the ocean again to spice things up a bit! Just kidding. Have you read any good books lately? I'm on a teen lit kick.


beautiful portrait, btw :)

I'm there...right there...with you! Only substitute baking with knitting and reading. And it's nice to have a time and space for all that...but oh I am so ready for Spring! Sending up big hugs and happy baking vibes to see you through the last of this! xoxo

i know exactly what you mean. i just want to nap until the leaves come back. i'm even too lazy to bake - that would mean dishes, and i'm so bored with dishes.
