A World Without Sun

It's been a full week of rain and I'm drained. My energy level is just about gone. It's amazing how life without sun affects me. I thought I would have been okay, but I guess two or three days is fine. More than that is a problem. But, there's nothing I can do about it. I've done quite a bit of cleaning and did some more organizing with the things I had brought over from the house. I still have more than enough room for everything here My apartment may be small but it's roomier than it looks! I'm very surprised by that. Of course, my bed has drawers underneath, so I keep all of my bedding there. The closet only has long sleeved sweaters and jackets, and that's not even half full. I have some empty totes on the floor of my closet for anything that will need to be stored at some point. What I do have to work on a little more is putting pictures up. I did put some sun catchers in my windows, but without sun, nothing is happening with those! lol I hope they will look really pretty once there is sun. :) How's your day going? -Claudia- image from pixabay

Thanks! I have one that's an angel with some crystals and the other is a lighthouse. I'd forgotten all about them because they've been packed up for months! So it's nice to just have them up where I can enjoy them again. :)

@CRK109 I think it's worse to be sick when it's sunny and beautiful out, but thanks so much. I feel much better today!

After having rain in the forecast all week it finally started raining a little bit ago. I'm glad I got to mow in between!

No one is able to mow around here this week. I imagine once the sun does come out, everyone will be mowing at the same time! lol

@CRK109 The rain has been helpful for the grass. And here, where the business is having the grass grow, it's great! I'm going to sell some of that grass (hay) this morning.

You should see if you can get some type of sunlamp and vitamin D supplement, they are mood boosters!

We actually had blue skies for about an hour today, it was quite shocking but now it is raining again. I am so done with this.

You know, I usually enjoy rainy weather if it's only for a day or so. But this is extreme. I can't wait for some sunshine. I'll have to get outside and sit in it for a little while.

I could never live back east where it rains so much and overcast skies. Gotta have that year around sunshine most days (not today though) in SoCal.

We never used to have weather like this. Our weather patterns have changed so much in the last few years that sometimes it scares me.

It has been gray and raining all week here. Horrible. I need to see some sunshine or I will lose my mind.

I had to go to my former town today to help my sister fill out medical paperwork for another specialist. I am in the library now, as it is one of my most peaceful places. I brought my laptop along as I had an article to write today. You sound very organized. Can you find a place to set up a grow light for you?

I probably could do that. I hadn't considered it before but I will now! Thanks for a great idea! :)

After over a week of gray and chill, we finally have sunshine. Wish I could send some sunshine your way. It helps that I walk the dog in all weather conditions, she insists, and that walk does help with gray days.

I'm sure it does! I see people outside walking their dogs every day. Of course, their walks are a lot longer when the weather is nice! lol

You too! I know that if I open my eyes in the morning and see more clouds/rain, I'll just roll over and go back to sleep! lol

I have to admit the umbrelas make for a very interesting view and gives alot of color that we miss in a daily life.

I hope you get some sun soon, we are now going to have 2 days of rain which is welcome as long as it doesn't turn to snow. I will be praying for sunshine and warm weather for you.

We have more sun than last week, but the weather is still not as good as it should be at this time of the year.

The rain has been here for a whole week already and I'm starting to feel cranky. I NEED sun!! Glad you're getting your new place organized and finding room for everything. I love suncatchers (and windchimes) so hope the sun comes out soon so you can enjoy yours! Have a great weekend Claudia
