This was the scene outside most of the day. Grey, nasty, icky, wet and generally disgusting. This type of weather is not conducive to doing anything but eating or sleeping. Maybe reading if you can stay awake long enough once you’ve gotten into a comfortable position on the couch. It’s just…blech.
Aruba’s motto is “One Happy Island” and I think at least one tiny bit of it can be attributed to the fact that in the middle of January, it’s in the 80s and they get 2 more hours of sun than we’re getting up here. It’s gotta help just a little bit.
I keep reminding myself that the days are in fact getting longer and daylight savings time will get here in a mere 54 days. In the meantime, I have every swinging light on in the house, electric bill be damned. It’s not easy being solar powered in the winter.
