After writing my last post, and proceeding to read other posts, I realized that I wasn't the only one with a headache, a backache, a cold, the flu, various trials, and plain down right and dirty winter blues. My first thought was that I needed a blogging break, it would help my headaches not to stare at a computer. My second thought was I need to see dirt or pavement. Snow covers everything from the 8 feet of snow in our yard to the streets, the sidewalks, or pathway, everywhere is white. My third thought was that I needed non-radiated, non forced-air heat, from that thing called the sun!
This is the Sunny Contest designed to help everyone see the sun and shake off the cold winter. Here's how to enter: Open the comments section of this post and answer this question: If you had a friend depressed by the dulls of winter, what advice would you give her? I will not end the contest until at least 20 separate people comment (no repeats) or until February 24th at 11:00 p.m. All comments will be published on my blog on February 25th, where everyone who commented will be invited back to pick the person who gave the best advice. Who ever received the most picks, will be the winner of a sunny day pillow and the honor of being cheering a friend in need!
What is your advice for overcoming the winter blues?
P.s. My sister, Jennifer, has finally given up and succombed to the preassure of starting her own blog. She will no longer be a lurker, but a full fledged blogger! A talented woman like this has to be on the net! Pop over and say HI, she just put her first post up! Click here!
