Orange You Glad ...

We are in the deepest depths of winter here in PA. The weather has been brutal. We seem to get some snow every couple of days and the temperature has been in the single digits, hitting negatives at night and early mornings.  Personally, I do not like winter. Its long and seems never-ending in the midst of it. BUT, I've been trying to not let it get me down. I'm trying hard not to focus on it too much. I've been trying to exercise more regularly and eat better. Its a slower time for photos, so I've been reading and studying photography more. I planted a small rosemary plant as well as some rosemary seeds - having green, living plants indoors can help reduce stress and provide a feeling of well-being.  I'm all for that! I'm catching up on my nursing CEUs - I have to earn 30 credits every two years to renew my license, and have only earned 3 so far (due in October) - you could say I'm slacking a little bit in that department.  Finally, I'm trying to keep my family healthy through this winter season ... so far, so good. (knock on wood).

I've also been eating lots of clementines. They are about as sweet as candy with a little bit of a tang to them. They are juicy and a decent source of vitamin C. Also, they are orange; nice, bright orange. It's such a cheerful color ... "the happiest color", as Frank Sinatra said.

Looking on the bright side, January is almost over. February is a short month and my daughter's spring (yes, spring) track starts in March. That means warmer weather should be soon to follow. At least that's what I'm telling myself.

So here's to trying to focus on the brighter side!  :)

  1. The clementine pictures are perfect! They look like art to me : ). Absolutely beautiful.

    Well, Tish, I completely understand. I live in Pennsylvania also, just outside of Philly, and I am trying not to feel depressed about the snow storm that is coming tonight. I have heard we are getting between 6-12 inches. YIKES! I am so ready for Spring! : )

  2. Wow! Thank you so much Becky! I'm finding the need to break out my camera and do some editing to pass this long winter by.


    Well, we made it through another week and are one week closer to spring. I'm really hoping it gets here soon!!

    We have had the same sort of winter over here in MA. Our little Joey loves clementines! He once told us he ate 19 of them and then pooped orange!! :)
