It’s a snow day here and while I will be spending it trying to get out from under the mounds of envelopes I have to calligraph, I would love to spend it laying in bed and reading. But I will settle for a cozy blanket at the kitchen table and some fuzzy slipps on my feet. Here are some snow day essentials.

I am cold and I just want to snuggle under blankets next to a fire next to a candle with hot chocolate and popcorn. I don’t know how you people do it in the north. I just don’t know. So this post is about all of the things that make me feel warm so I can pretend that I am. Also HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY weekend! I hope you all have wonderful plans with friends or loves (or both).
Winter Playlist and Small Sadnesses
Friday, January 31, 2014
The true truth about things is that January has been a slight amount of a bummer for me. I have had a small sadness which has most likely been made worse by a good old fashioned case of seasonal affective disorder. When I say small I mean it because I know that my sadness has been featherweight compared to the heaviness of other possible sadnesses to be had in the world. Events of this month have led me to the conclusion that I must give up my bug. Some of you may know that my car up until this point has been a VW Beetle convertible. It was and continues to be my dream car. It was the first thing I bought when I had enough money after I started working a big girl job and it was a pretty triumphant day as I have wanted one since before I can remember. And now it is time to let it go. I realize that forming an attachment to an object (and particularly a car) is quite a silly thing to do. But I can’t help but feel like over the years it has become a small part of me. Not to mention it was paid off and now I will have car payments again. Yuck. So now I will be getting a new car. One that I frankly don’t want. A car like a Honda or Toyota that is a practical and mature decision because it is attractive, reasonably priced, more reliable and cheaper to fix if it needs repairs. Blah blah blah. So I will allow myself this last day of January to feel a tiny bit sorry for myself and sorry for my poor little bug. I will be listening to this playlist with some of the songs I have been enjoying lately. I hope you guys enjoy them too. I promise I intend to be more upbeat in February.
Here is a link to the playlist for listening on mobile phones and tablets. Also, if you can’t see it on your computer, try hitting refresh.
