I am looking forward to getting things growing again. I just can't stand being that cold. I am snugged up in lots of layers, and live in thick trackie bottoms around the house, so we aren't hammering the heating oil. I did put the heating on by lunchtime yesterday, as I just felt miserable.
I am going to cut my Husbands hair and trim his beard later, so He looks smart for Auntie's funeral on Monday. It has arrived so quickly. My Husband is an excellent organiser for things like this. In some ways it's bad for me, because I have simply got out of the habit of doing organising since giving up work.
I definately do need more to do, I am going to see what the wednesday stint at Ecce Homo involves, another wrapping up well job, sorting donations for aid to Romania. I do admire people that get these initiatives going, and are faithful to see them through. I think if I don't give more meaning to my life by doing things that are helpful, I am just going to die of boredom and lack of effort. They always say if you want something done, give it to a busy person to do it!
I am just not busy any longer. I have started to miss Hairdressing for it's busyness, and it's social aspect. I don't want to do it again, so I guess my feelings are more from a sense of lonliness and usefulness.
I think the medication I am on at the moment is fantastic, I feel the best stability I have felt for a long time. The meds stop me going depressed as well as high, so they are doing their job. I think if I wasn't taking them I would be suffering with depression quite severely, as the winter months are my usual time to kick off. All goes well on that front so that is a great blessing. I suppose it realy extends from the Autumn Equinox to the Spring. Once the days are warmer and I am in the garden, or getting more warmth I feel more enthusiastic about everything and get lots of things done.
I am going to post the photo of the dress I made next/above.
