Monday Blues


Taken yesterday. This was clear last week. We used the BBQ.

The fact is that I could call it March and April blues too. I am, like so many of my other Canadian citizens, sick of winter. Yes, it should rightly be finished by now, yet we are still getting snow (it is snowing as I type this). Andy’s mom recently commented, ‘Well, we usually joke that it’s winter 6 months of the year, but it’s nearly true this year.’ We have had snow since before Hallowe’en. That is over 5 months. Enough is enough. It also means our growing season will be much, much shorter.

I am combating the blues with plans for a trip somewhere warm. Thankfully, the countdown is officially on! In 3 weeks 2 days, the kids and myself will be heading on a 3 week trip to Vancouver to visit with my mom and other family. It does make the whole ‘starting a garden’ thing a bit of a muddle, but it can’t be helped. I need to get away, and that is precisely Andy’s busiest season at work, so we have worked out that it would be in all our best interest if I go on a trip somewhere with the kids. And what an adventure it will be – I’m not sure how I’ll do with two kids in tow, but I’m looking forward to it. I’ve managed to make all of our driving to be only 6 hours max per day, so that will help too. I’m very excited, and really, it’s all that’s getting me through this horribly long winter this year.

There’s a lot more news, but I’m planning an Easter post for tomorrow, so I’ll save it for then. Anyone else hit with some Monday blues?

Loving God through my family, friends, and interactions in my world.
