Ugh, today is just… blah.

The weather is extra dark and menacing. It’s the kind of stormy, dreary day that makes you want to stay home under the covers all afternoon with your Netflix queu and a bottomless mug of hot chocolate. Everyone else in town must be feeling the funk, too, because no one seems to be thinking about flowers. 

There are dozens of things I could be doing, but I can’t muster even an ounce of energy to start any of them. All I want to do is lie down on the floor with Doak — who is totally snoring next to my desk as I type this, little booger — and snooze until 5:00. 

At least we’re one day closer to the weekend!

    We rarely get weather like this in Dubai, so I would on the contrary love to spend an afternoon like this :)

  6. Hey, its no different in Berlin :-( Yesterday I ventured our on my bike, and found myself in a windblown dreary ex-airfield and this morning I’ve been rewarded with cold symptons. Bleurgh! C’mon spring, we’re rooting for you!

    For a minute there I thought maybe you had relocated to North Carolina because you described the exact same day that we had. Hopefully tomorrow will bring a little more sunshine and warm weather. It just doesn’t feel right for it to be in the forties during April.

    And here I thought it was just me. I felt so blue this morning as I looked out my window and couldn’t see the sun. Thanks Canada, thanks a lot.

  17. Ugh. It is like that in San Francisco too. I was actually debating buying some flowers for my desk just to brighten my day!

    • Doooo it! ;-) There’s seriously nothing better than a few fresh stems to bring a little sunshine in.
