I am on a roll - This weather we've been having has me enjoying these winter months more than I ever have. Of course droughts will do that. It's a false sense of security or sun. I know that the other shoe will eventually fall - maybe we'll even get some much needed rain. I am getting spoiled. Every day I want to get up and out in the sunshine. It's in the 30's at night and mid 60's and 70's during the day with blue skies and majestic mountains views - you can see for miles! So if you want a bit of winter, you have it at night. You bundle up, take a cold walk and be done with it. If you want to sit in the mild sun during the day - you can warm up those tired old bones and feel good.
I am so addicted to sunshine and my moods are affected by it. The powers that be, are saying we might get some chance for rain mid week. We'll see how long I can hold on to my sunshiny mood, when the dark, damp days of a Northern California winter envelopes my whole being.
I like to think I am like a solar panel. I get recharged, when I sit in the sun every day, hoping it will help when they days get dim and dark. Like I am banking my sunshine, somewhere in my brain.
Whatever! I am enjoying the here and the now. I'll think about the rain another day.
