The February Blues

Pin It

I have the February Blues. I tend to get shack happy this time of year. I just want to shake it off! Friends have the flu. It's cold. I'm bored. I'm irritable with the hubby, kid, family. And it's not just me. Everyone else is too cranky to deal with. I think bears have the right idea. You go to sleep when it's cold, wake up and flowers are blooming. I wish I was a bear.

My birthday is this month so I did a little online shopping. Lisa Snellings-Clark has a poppet sale on ebay. A chocolate poppet is on it's way to me. I also ordered some books from Bookcloseouts.com. Neil Gaiman's Fragile Things, Coraline and Joe Hill's Heart Shaped Box are a few. I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and being adventurous. Maybe that will shake off these blues!


  1. Sorry to hear you have the blues. Happy Birthday in advance. :)

    It is difficult this time of year. I can't remember the last time I saw the sun.

  2. I know how frustrating the blues can be. Our weather is not bad here. Sunday was gorgeous, but it makes me long for Spring. At least the days are getting longer. New books always make me feel better too;-)

  3. ah my birthday is this month too...and I am suffering the winter blahs as well...I am just so over winter...happy birthday

  4. Its so grey and rainy here. A hard time of year, that's for sure. I can relate.

  5. I fully agree - ENOUGH with the snow and cold. Let's see some buds on the trees, some pussy-willows and crocuses.

    Happy Birthday. Just when is the happy day? Sounds like some great b-day gifts you've rounded up. Wish you hadn't mentioned the new chocolate poppet, tho! JK

  6. Oh wow...you scored 3 excellent books there! And you'll get to hear all about Lisa Snellings-Clark in the intro to Fragile Things! Gaiman bases a lot of his short stories on her sculptures :) Hope February gets better for you!

  7. I'm sorry you've got those winter blues. I hope that at least the book buying helped somewhat :)
    I want to read Heart-Shaped Box. It seems everyone enjoys that one.

  8. Happy Birthday month!

    Hibernating. What a splendid idea. If only I could.
