Pretty in pink .... sometimes ...

 truth is ... i suffer from SAD ... you can read all about it here if you are so inclined ... and the spring with the worst weather (grey, cold & rain) in 50 years is literally kicking the crap out of me ... so i ignored my blog ... let my emails pile up, curled up with a pile of blankets and prepared to wait it out.  And of course that strategy never works ... so here i am, promising to not leave my blog and friends neglected for so long ... and to get creative once again ...

a few things that broke the sadness for me ....
my daughter, always so intone with what is going on for me
some wonderful friends
lovely flowers from a friend, who doesn't just get all happy looking at pinks and whites
going to my monthly crop with my scrappy friends
encouraging emails and comments on my blog from my wonderful blog friends

So, I am just going to try and think of pink, whenever those grey skies set in ... and get on with life, because it is so much better than the alternative.

For some reason even Honey looks sad ... usually she loves to pose for the camera ... today, not so much

thanks so much for stopping by!

Aw, Jo. You and I have been in the same boat for months now. Even the Vitamin D megadoses & SAD lamp aren't really helping. I've done exactly what you've done: isolated. Even folks without SAD are cranky. Keep on plugging along. The sun will come out to stay at some point. It just has to. Or least that's what I keep telling myself.

I hope, hope, hope that yesterday's sunshine is a taste of what is to stay with us all week. If you were going to succumb to SAD, this was definitely the year for it. I thought I'd grow mold from the rain!
I'm glad that you're making your way back - and very happy for you that good friends and favorite activity helped your through.

I know how you feel, I'm pretty sick and tired of all the rain, wind and cold weather. This spring has been bad!!
I hope you managed to enjoy some of the sunshine on Sunday :) It was good for the spirit.
