I’m not sure if it’s the cold weather, or just things going on at work, but I have been feeling a bit down recently. I know these moods occur to us all, and I’m not worried about it, but am just aware of it.
I’m not a fan of the cold, although I don’t like extreme heat either. Give me a range between 10 to 30 degrees and I’m happy. But each winter just seems to get longer, and although it’s not been a bad one by any stretch, I am so looking forward to spring coming. I know it’s around the corner.
