Winter Stuff

I have been so snowbound lately, literally and figuratively. Of course, we have had record snowfalls this week, we are an inch short of the record in 1978. My hand was healing nicely, but I had to go sledding with my daughter last week, and broke my index finger, landing badly after hitting the moguls with a thin excuse for a sled. Luckily,the seam on my hand held together, but my finger broke the tumbling. So today, along with physical therapy on my hand, I get to also work on trying to get my index finger back, though it is still very swollen. The therapist just shook her head, and made me promise I would leave it on it's splint more hours of the day. I was so hoping to get back to sewing and crafting, I am settling for typing, slowly...

Been in prayer with friends, about finances, and bills, and even was prayed over and anointed with oil at church last week, and prayers have been answered! We have a tenant for our rental property, I sold a picture to an ad agency and a few dollars came in for that too! And the snow has been so pretty, though isolating. Hubby snow plowed for some of our neighbors, a few items picked up at the grocery, babysitting a friends child, just checking to be sure we are all ok. Life goes on, but I definately have been pining for the sun, warmer temps, or optimism.
Googling the topic, SADD, the feeling caused by lack of sunlight and activity, I have a link here for others who are similarly affected, http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/wellness_articles.asp?id=341 Teaching school last year, I used this site extensively, for teaching nutrition, and physical fitness. There are great trackers, and articles and it is all free. While I am unwilling to count calories right now, I know how to get aggressive with nutrition, as we start to leave winter. Just now in the mood right now. More soon,

Hey :) Thanks for checking in on me. I am doing better now, more used to everything. I'm starting to like it now. It's really good for me and my husband because we don't have family all interfering and stuff. So sorry about your finger! But, so excited to hear how God worked in your life!!!! That is awesome. Thanks for sharing that testimony. If you need some sun, you should take a vacation to Florida :)
