Today is the first day of spring, and boy, am I ready for it! Unfortunately, in California, we’re still having rain. Lots of rain. We even had hail last week! We’re considerably over our moisture needs for the year, but the rains just keep coming. Rain is forecast for every day this week. Ugh!
When I talk to Mom each day, she goes on and on about how depressed she is. The rain depresses her. She can’t go out, she’s going stir crazy, and she’s cold. In the process, she seems to have lost her ability to solve problems. Things as simple as turning on the lights and heat seem beyond her. She winces at the potential cost of the electricity and can’t make the connection that more heat and light would make her feel better. So she sits in the gray cold and mopes.
I keep trying to teach an old dog new tricks. And praying for sunshine. I hope you’re enjoying spring wherever you are.
