Cabin Fever

I know that I have spent far too long indoors recently and I am feeling the effects. The weather has hardly been conducive to being outside, as even when it wasn't actually snowing, it was invariably icy.

Even though I am feeling completely exhausted after working about 84+ hours in the last week, I decided that today was far too nice to be stuck inside. I can always tell that it has been a long, cold winter when a day like today, when the temperature only reached 4 C actually felt mild! Yes, I ventured outdoors in a fleece and gloves (no coat) and enjoyed the experience.

A brisk walk around the neighbourhood put a glow in my cheeks and filled my lungs with fresh air, which was such a relief after breathing recycled air for weeks. Walking is not only good for my physical health ~ it is good for my soul. I am so glad that I made the effort, as it would have been only too easy to put it off for another day. Now I can really start to recover from that cabin fever.
