It's January in Colorado. If you're a skier or snowboarder, you're happy. If you're Jayla Jasso, you're really kind of looking forward to June already. June in Colorado is really nice. July is even better, and so is August. But January? Ugh.
Temperatures have been in the 20s and teens for the past three weeks, and we have snow and ice patches still not melted from two weeks ago. Right now it's sunny and 36 degrees, and it feels like a heat wave, but it's 4:00pm and the sun is already setting.
All that to say that winter here isn't really my fave. I like wearing my Ugg boots with jeans and leggings and my infinity scarves, but cabin fever has set in. Not getting enough sunlight brings on the winter blues. Don't much want to go outside, even though fresh air would do me a world of good. And yes, I am a homebody like a lot of writers, and losing myself in my latest work-in-progress is a good way to while the winter months away, but I need a few other comforts to get me through to June 1. So, inspired by this article at "The Art of Simple," I made my own version of a Winter Feel-Good List:
Ahh. Even reading over that list makes me feel a little better. And now I'm off to do at least one of the things on the list...probably the hot water with ACV and lemon juice one...and then get back to work on my editor's edits for Omaja Stone.
