I took Heidi out for a walk at the dog park yesterday. It wasn't too cold and the sky was so blue. She's a wonderful walking partner. She's off leash, comes when called and loves the snow. Mostly she just loves being alive I think.
I finally feel like I've recovered from the flu and slept well last night. It's bloody cold today so a day to stay indoors and quilt and make some cookies. I'm trying to get some exercise in so I biked for thirty minutes on my stationary bike while I watched The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
I'm not depressed. Winter has us firmly in her grip and I still feel good. The walking outdoors helps so much and of course the days are getting longer. We ate supper last night at 5:30pm and it was still light outside. Awesome.
We also went to the greenhouse yesterday and I bought myself a primula because I need to see a live flower to remind me that spring will come, in a few months. Mostly I'm thankful I'm not depressed, February is a difficult month for me, both of my parents died in February but this year I'm good.
