Windy on the Hill

Monday, April 15, 2013

Winter just doesn't want to let go. This time last year, I was in short-sleeved shirts and blissfully perspiring.

I reread yesterday's blog and can't believe how "whiny" I sounded. Pity party...table for one. Self-pity is not attractive and feels even worse. Writing these thoughts down, though, seems helpful. While I appreciate the feedback, I believe my own feedback (to myself) is what's really important. Right now, I feel like I'm rambling; my brain is dripping thoughts like a leaky faucet.

Once the weather gets better, I'm heading off to visit....whomever. California or Texas. Sounds warm and I have some family in both places. I love the River Walk in San Antonio. I could spend hours there people-watching. Or go soak up a little merlot in the Napa area in California. Or dim sum in Chinatown.

Today I'm tucked in. It's gray and windy outside. I can just make out the turkeys in the field behind the house. Everything is brown out there and they blend really well. The sand hill cranes have returned. I can hear their croaky "music" even with the windows closed.

Can't wait to be able to open windows around here; let in some fresh, clean air. Out goes the bad air, in comes the good.

It's almost 5 p.m. and I've been up since 5 a.m. I have a Dr. appointment tomorrow for a recheck on my BP. Keeping my fingers crossed that, despite the past couple of weeks, my BP improves. Here's hoping!

    Hope everything works out for you. Love the Riverwalk. Have been lucky to visit there twice at Christmas. So gorgeous! Hang in there!

    It's beginning to look like it's going to stay cold and windy right up to the day that it reaches 100 degrees and stays windy!

    Voicing how you feel often helps and you only do it once in a while so don't worry about it!

    Good luck at the Dr. tomorrow!

    Oh I was so bad during winter with depression I didn't even blog because I knew it would be horrible.

    We just got back from spending a month in Texas. SPI was mid 60's to low 70's but even though the weather in Feb was terrible here in Wi it was not that warm in Texas. We spent a couple of days on the way home in San Antonio and really enjoyed it there. I hope you have a great tie whenever you decide to go. We all need a pity party now and then so don't feel too bad. emoticon

    The weather has me feeling very blah right now. Luckily in May I'm going to Texas for my brother's wedding so that will lift my spirits. I vented today too about how I feel and it was very negative but we all have to do that once in a while. Hope your BP improves.
