From a Crab's Perspective

I wonder why it is I always think I'm going to get so much done during the winter. Maybe because it seems to be the longest season of the year, and because there's not that much you can do outside unless you're a skier or like to go snowmobiling.

Ground Hog's Day was last Tuesday, which marks the mid-point in winter. From now on, it's full steam ahead to Spring! The days are definitely getting longer now, but it's too early to watch for the migratory birds. Tall piles of snow surround my house where the white stuff has slid off my roof following a couple of big storms we had here in Pagosa Springs.

This time of year is good for catching up on projects, yet I haven't felt much like doing that. There's always work to do ... and writing projects waiting to be completed ... but somehow I find myself wanting to put things off in favor of doing anything and everything else instead. The snow is a good excuse to avoid work because I need to get out there and shovel or risk being housebound.

With each new snowfall, I welcome the excuse to go hole up in my boyfriend's cozy cabin. I must admit, this winter has been one of the most exciting ones of my life. As long as I get SOME work done, I don't feel that guilty about it. It's a time to rest, to recuperate, to reflect ... and all is really, really well.
