Another tacktic I use for those mid-winter blues is greenery and bulbs. I was just in time to snatch up the last box of narsissis bulbs, and plopped them into some water just before wrapping my packages. I already have some blooms bursting forth. At the same store I pick up a discounted cyclamen. It has perked up just fine with lovely pink blossoms ready to burst. This is the time of the year I also indulge in some weekly bouquets of fresh flowers too. I just picked up two stems of pink lilies for under $4.00 at my local super market. The scent is heavenly.
Last week we just layed low. I couldn't even motivate myself to go out and hit those great after holidays sales. Oh well, I think I did my civic duty to the economy during my Christmas shopping. It was a great relaxing week of reading, blogging, and some movie watching. Tonight I found out we are having some guests coming into town for the weekend...I am really glad now that I got that tree down =]
What are some of your tricks for getting through a long winters night?
