3 Things That Are Saving My Life Right Now


As far as I am concerned winter sucks! Did you have another day of overcast skies? When it is overcast in July it just doesn't feel the same as overcast in February! I have friends who tell me they love our four seasons. Yeah, right! How can one love freezing temperatures, shorter days, and all kinds of moisture falling from the sky, I ask myself. Granted we are having a "mild winter" here. But it is still long! And grey! And boring! (except today was surprising)!

But do you want to know what is saving my life right now? Here are 3 things that are brightening up my winter days:

1) Clementine's, cutie's, halo's,(whatever you call them). Yum. I love how easy they are to peel. I love their juiciness. I love that sweet citrusy taste!

2) Do you know what else is saving my life right now?? Sunshine!! Yes, I am telling you today we had Sunshine. And it was 74 degrees! Parts of the state of Kansas were even 80 degrees. It's not going to last, but that is okay. For one day I could pretend that spring really is coming right around the corner. ( I won't even tell you what the forecast is).

3) Hugs! Doesn't a hug always save your life! Especially when you are feeling down and sad! My grandkids give the best hugs. And they come from their heart.

There you go. That is what is saving my life right now! What is saving your life today??

  3. Yum on the halos and we are having warm weather here too; a week of 70s; loving it!! What is saving my life right now is caffeine. Having trouble sleeping, thinking this will be the night we get the call daughter in law is in labor, so it makes it for tired days :) Thank goodness for coffee!

  7. Hmm, what's saving my life today? Coffee, naps in between post-op caregiving, and . . . the plumber. To be honest, I would have been okey without the need for the plumber (and the bill).

  9. Orange and yellow are my very favorite colors -- but I don't eat oranges and (too much) sunshine makes me cringe! Crazy, y'all are freezing and I was running the A/C in my car yesterday.

    Big hugs headed your direction, my friend!

    1. Uh-oh. I think my comment on your oranges and yellow sounds kinda snarky. :(
      I'm loving the visual of those oranges in their sweet wire basket ... it's almost like they're saying, "Welcome home!"

    2. I love those colors too. They remind me of summer!! I would like to have the A/C on for a day or two!! LOL And I didn't think you sounded at all snarky!!

  11. I guess the warm weather is going around. That's good, I suppose. (We've been in the high 80s/low 90s.)

    Saving my life right now... A four day weekend! Yup, no school Friday or Monday. And I just got some chocolate chip cookies. The kiddos all seemed to have cookies today (and chocolate, and balloons, and flowers--it was the official Valentines Day celebration).

  12. I can cope with the cold but sunshine and blue skies definitely help. Will pass on the clementines (especially when there are chocolates in the house) but never pass up on a hug. Nice post.

  13. I consume too many of those little clementines in a given week. They are so good, so easy to eat, and so small it doesn't feel like a lot : ) Hope you have a great weekend!
