I've always embraced winter's serenity and solitude. I love snow and have no aversion to grey skies. As far as I'm concerned, spring can come when it gets here - no rush.
Yesterday I arrived home earlier from work than usual. The sun was still perched high in the sky and as exhausted as I was from a 3am wake up call, it filled me energy and an unbelievable lightness. I took this gift of motivation and used it to get a jump start on the weekend chores. Cleaned the house, changed bed sheets and made a good size dent in the laundry pile. I settled on the couch after dinner with Charlie, wrapped together in a huge blanket. We sipped wine while I read magazines and he watched hockey.
It was incredible how making it home while it was still light out motivated me and fueled a drive that has been mostly hibernating for winter.
I realized that I'm ready for winter to pack it's bags and give way to longer days. I need the light.
It's Friday people....we.made.it!
Savor every moment. I know I will.
