A little update. Not much going on right now. The weather has been really awful here in central Texas for the last week or so — cold, damp, cloudy, lots of fog and heavy mists. Definitely not as bad as other parts of the country are suffering, but it's exactly the kind of weather I really hate. Like my mother, I suffer from seasonal affective disorder (never actually been diagnosed, but if you have it, you know it) and my moods are drastically affected by even the slightest changes in the amount of daylight and sunshine we have. I would not do well living in the Pacific Northwest or Ireland or Scandinavia. Lately, though, I feel like I'm there.
Before the mists descended, January has brought us a few really nice sunsets. And the full moon earlier this month was visible for a while.
But for the last couple of days, we haven't seen the sun or the moon.
So M and I have mostly been staying home and hunkering down. He didn't used to be such a weather wimp, but I've been a bad influence. We did have to venture out several times last week to take care of a few medical thingies — nothing terribly major, but important enough not to want to delay until the weather improves. We were very proud of ourselves for actually getting out and about!
Other than that, I've just been reading and organizing my reading challenges for the year (see my blog post about them). Also doing a lot of playing with my planner for 2017 — so far, I'm using my new Erin Condren planner,
but typically during the year I'll switch back and forth between the Condren planner and one or another of my Filofaxes. I guess I'm fickle. Or just not as organized as I like to think I am.
And that's about it. Our world is pretty quiet and boring (and cloudy) right now. Hoping for better stuff in the near future.
