Winter Blues

The weather has been really getting me down over the past few days, particularly since Friday night when I slipped and fell on some ice, and over the weekend walking the dogs in frigid and windy conditions. I've been trying to figure out a way to get myself to a conservatory, just so I can sit and enjoy the fragrance of the flowers and the humidity. I can't figure out any time soon that I could do that though.

These pictures are mostly just to cheer myself up (and anyone else suffering from the winter blues).

I'm moving to a warm climate when I'm out of college (whenever THAT is!)

Cathy, do you have a chance to blog anymore?

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
