Winter Doldrums Q#4

Q: Defeat the Winter Doldrums" for some of us we get the doldrums and others don't. For the ones who get doldrums what helps you get rid of them? For the ones who don't get the doldrums, what helps you keep them away?

You know, this is only the third "winter" I have had in almost 20 years, so i still look at winter a bit differently. We have been in Hawaii where winter just means brown/more rain. Right now we have not had snow but have had it could snow weather. I am sick of this tease...can take spring now if it isn't going to be white. So when i get the winter blues i start planning for spring, seed catalogs, seeds..what to plant in the garden, reading books on long distance hiking, starting to get backpacking food ready, dehydrated, packaged, looking at patterns and fabrics for a few new summer pieces, knitting something for summer...these usually help me get over the blues, and in a way keep them from even coming!

The body scrub sounds heavenly.

As for chasing away the doldrums, I'm stymied as well. We try hard to get out a do things, but really, it is all such a pain in the backside.

I buy yarn. But I guess that is what I do to lift my spirits when the heat of summer starts cooking my brain. Maybe I am just looking for any excuse to buy yarn, ya think?
