It’s raining today.
I am naturally a pessimist, but I don’t like gloom. I don’t like dark and dreary and things dragging me down and negativity. I think that’s because I know that, the more I’m around it, the more it brings me down. And the longer I’m down the worse I get. So needless to say, since I can’t control the weather, I’m feeling somewhat gloomy. Like an Eeyore.
No offense to Eeyore, but I’d rather not be him. I’d rather be like Pooh. Or even Olaf-like. (Can you tell we watch a lot of Disney movies?)
So if I’m Olaf, let me dream of summer. Bumble bees and dandelions, a drink in my hand, my skin up against the burning sand, probably getting gorgeously tan…(or red) in summer. Earlier today I was dreaming Independence Day fun and letterboxing and a picnic at the creek.
I’d even take Spring.
But since we’re here, here’s what our family came up with for a winter bucket list:
Drink hot chocolate
Make snow angels
Build a snow man
Have a snowball fight
Build a snow fort
Play in the snow
Guess it needs to be winter a little longer if we’re going to accomplish most of these!
What’s on your winter bucket list?
