We experienced our "January thaw" this week here in Minnesota.... temps went up into the upper 30's and even 41 degrees one day!
This morning, however, I awakened to single-digit temps and a windchill of 0 degrees...along with some snow flurries. Brrrr!
Even after living (..more like "surviving") 17 Minnesota winters, I still cannot appreciate those extreme temperatures. My body and soul yearn for sunshine and warmth.
I thought the cold wouldn't hit me too hard this year, since I have my hot flashes to counter-act them... but they don't seem to help much, since they come and go so rapidly.
One minute, I'm bundling up with layers of clothing and lovely scarves wrapped creatively around my neck... the next, I am literally ripping clothing off my body.
I think I will spend the day doing things I love and make me happy... like creating in The Sunshine Room, and stopping by a few estate sales and my favorite occassional sale at a local shop.
I'm leaving you with some more favorite photos discovered during my recent photo purging... enjoy!~
