As I sit here listening to my furnace run and wondering just what my gas bill will be for this month I am thinking I have a big case of the Winter Blahs.
I’ve been fighting lack of sunlight since November and now the lack of any warmth what so ever is making it seem worse than ever.
I dream a lot about the BEACH and warm summer days hoping that it might help to alleviate some of my BLAHs . I’d love to afford a trip to the BEACH for real right now, but somehow that is just not in the budget.
So I said to myself before you go stir crazy for spring, think about a few blah-busting tips. What frugal activities can I do. Here is the list I came up with
Plan a special meal once a week. It will give me something to look forward to. It's the perfect time to expand your food repertoire, too. Try new nutritious recipes, and be sure to get plenty of rest to help you feel good.
Finish any unfinished craft projects—I’ve got some cute little signs I started for last Easter, maybe it would be could to finish those up so I can put them in Easter baskets for my family this year.
Be sure to let the sun shine in. Open up curtains and blinds. Add a colorful fruit bowl, scented candles or a decorative accent, such as placemats, to add enough color to cheer you. This is one I’ve done already…I’ve got Valentines stuff all over my house.
Get a jumpstart on gardening by watching gardening show and ordering seeds
Set up a birdfeeder and birdwatch. Grab your camera and take some scenic pictures
It’s not that I haven’t already done a few of these, but it’s that I need to do more of them. Shaking off the blahs right now is challenge.
It is in the low teens here at my house this morning, I’m layered up to keep warm and I’m going to go off to work soon.
I hope it is a FABULOUS FRIDAY for you all!
I’m trying…that’s all I can do.
