Earlier this week, we were blessed with sun and 75 degree weather. Fabulous. Today, the California winter has returned with a vengeance. Dull gray skies push down, shrouding the hilltops; the rain just started. The little red geraniums I bought the other day add a splash of color in an otherwise dreary day.
It's depressing. This type of weather, while occasionally a nice welcome, also dampens any motivation I might have had to get anyting done. I've turned on all the lights inside to try and fool myself that there is some brightness right now. But I know it's only a substitute. I have to push through this and make myself do things. It's not what I want, but it's what I need to do to feel better. Sitting around sipping from a mug of hot chocolate sounds much better. Life goes on.
