The older I get the longer winter seems to linger. This winter in particular has seemed to be a real bear. Sadly, it's only late January and there may be plenty more cold and snow coming our way. With any luck, however, the worst may be over. Maybe the groundhog will prove it next week.
I'm not sure why this winter has seemed so brutal. Moving from one house to another didn't help, a little post-relocation depression, perhaps. I've always been one to rise early, and I still do, but lugging my bones from bed some mornings has been a chore.
