Lately our weekends have been so amazing (seriously, hiking in Washington = Prozac) that it is really hard to keep the happiness flowing throughout the week. Now that the gloomy shadow of fall and winter (and the Seattle monsoon season) is rearing its ugly head as well, it’s getting even worse. Solution:
1) get one of those magical happy lamps
2) find new winter-type hobby (consuming foodstuffs and beer does not count as hobby)
3) surround yourself with memories of better days
I’m getting started on number three. We’ve already bought a huge canvas of one of our Mt. Rainier photos (the one in my blog header actually) to hang in the living room, and I’m going to frame some nature photos for the bedroom so I’ll be more inspired to, well, get up in the morning. And for the scrapbooking room/office: photo folders!
I’m using Lisa Bearnson’s Kit of the Month to make these, and it’s freaking awesome. I just got my paper trimmer and some adhesive and sat down to make this while watching an episode of Veronica Mars.
Super-easy, super-sweet. Here’s to hoping winter will be a little less grim this year!
