The Winter Blahs

I know it’s a little early to be upset that spring hasn’t arrived, but can’t winter be over already? I am more than tired of waking up to -25C and having to wear snow pants on my dog walks. The weather forecast for the next week isn’t too optimistic, but I’m hoping that March really comes through for me.

To make myself feel better about the cold, I baked scones for breakfast yesterday. I didn’t really need baked goods for breakfast since I haven’t been able to return to running yet, but the crisp sugary top did make me feel a little less angry about the cold. I ate another one this morning, reheated and served with homemade pin cherry jelly and it reminded me of summer. I might just prop the jelly jar up beside me as I work today to remind myself that this cold spell will pass into spring eventually.
