Please send me your positive energy. I need it bad.February can be a tough month. Thank goodness it is so short. I have been spending the past couple of days coughing, sneezing and constantly blowing my nose, drinking tea and existing on soup. I have to say that this morning I feel a little better but the cough is still hanging on.
Here in Washington, DC, we haven’t had a severe winter; in fact it never really felt as though winter settled in for any long period of time. Surprisingly, this winter was considered mild and while we had some flurries here and there, no real snowstorms ever developed. I have a feeling that one of the reasons lots of people have colds and coughs is because it gets cold for a day or two and then it gets warm for a day or two. No one knows what to wear for work or play and that reminds me of another thing I am really tired of: my winter clothes.
I’m done with the coat and the scarf and the boots and the gloves. I just want to open the door and go outside without any layers of clothing. I heard on the news this morning that today’s sunset is at 6 pm and I am taking this as a positive sign that spring is on its way and winter may finally be coming to an end.
I can hardly wait for the warm weather!
