The house is back to rights, I am a little sad about it, Christmas decorations make any home cheerier during dreary winter days; no matter how much work it is, I always enjoy putting up all of our decorations. However, putting everything away puts me in a bah humbug kind of a mood. The thought of spending month after cold month pining away for Spring puts me in the doldrums. Maybe I am afflicted with lack of adequate sunlight syndrome that many people suffer from these winter months. I don’t know, but I am going to patiently wait for Spring to arrive and find some way to appreciate winter by refocusing my energies on soup making, baking and other types of cooking.
