From Gray to Yeah!!!

I bet you thought this was going to be another post about my hair...Nooo...it's starting to be what I lovingly call gray season in Ohio. The sky is gray with thick clouds or thin clouds or just the sky itself is a gray depressing color. It's cold out and damp but not raining, or snowing..just moisting...new word folks. Everything is damp but not humid. Every once in a while you will get a peek at brilliant sunshine. You're blinded, feeling like a mole who never sees light. This will go on until May. You learn to live with it. It makes you want to hibernate, eat chocolate, sit in front of a fire reading a great book. But I do enjoy the outdoors so I will venture around Whispering Pines and into the woods with the dog and breathe in the fresh air...all the while seeing the gray over the house.
Gray over the pines...I need to get inside for some hot cocoa or something to cheer me up.
But, what could this be? After viewing all the gray I happened to see this..a package outside my garage...and it has my name on it! Who doesn't love getting a package in the mail?...a big box with a surprise inside...I look to see who it could be from and see it's from a giveaway from Poetesswug that I won...me who never wins anything.. except when I won that wonderful giveaway from Maggie at Grandmayellowhair! I can never say "I never win anything" anymore..and I won't...I promise.
Ohhhhh....pretty wrapping...for me??? Slowly,(not really, I whipped it open!) I unwrapped it..
See what I won from my friend...Oh my! It's soooo pretty..and soft..and just adorable! Thanks so much Debbie! I wish everyone could see it in person because my bad photography does not do it justice. Thanks again for turning my gray day into a yeah day! To see more of her creations go to www.wuglyees.etsy.com, you won't be disappointed!

Now while you are sitting by the fireplace reading your book, with the steamy cup of hot cocoa...you can be cuddling in your nice, newly won blanket.

I agree about the gray!

Jay said...

Congrats on the win. I got gray skys down here too.

We get that here in the Waikato (central North Island) too. In fact it is that today, with humidity that makes me want to stab something. In winter it is like that for days on end and so damp it creeps inside.

And YAY for the win!

Congratulations. Just the thing for the season!

Donna said...

Yeah!! You won something! And it will be just the thing for in front of the fireplace! You are ALWAYS reading something good ...so you've got the snug as a bug in the rug thing going!! As for me...I'm off to Bucyrus Community Hosp today in the cold, gray morn.....

How beautiful, you are really lucky, I will stop complaining even on the coldest days in our winter we still have brilliant sunshine, I cannot imagine not seeing the sun for longer than 2 days, never mind until May, enjoy, take of photo, of yourself all wrapped up snug...

Hopefully we have left our grey skies behind and progressed into the blue skies of spring!

Congrats on your win! I just love winning something, anything! The weather here has been beautiful this week...in the middle to upper 70s everyday. I've been doing some Christmas decorating, which seemed weird with such warm weather. Hope all your gray days end as nicely as this one did.
