Check In: Day 343

Week 49: As we creep closer and closer to the one year mark things are starting to feel more “normal.” I think it is because we are starting to accept what “normal” will be like. We don’t think so much about Covid every day. I don’t know it is a good thing or not. The things we need to do seem natural now that I can go a whole day without thinking about it unless I see the news or something. When I think about how that sounds it seems impossible but it no longer fills my mind. I don’t know if that is good or not.

It also helps the sun is shining longer day by day. We actually looked up at 6:15 pm the other night and realized there was still a bit of sunlight in the sky it was not pitch black out. On March 14th we will turn our clocks ahead and it will stay light later in the day which I long for. I am a sunshine girl. I crave it and it improves my mood. The temperatures are creeping up too. It is supposed to be almost 40 today! Much better than those single digits with sub-zero windchill.

I am looking for the days when my little crocuses and snow drops start to bloom. That will really signify there are warmer days ahead!

  1. I think we have all become accustomed to our lockdown lives, Marci. I am also finding it easier this year, but there is so much work to be done as businesses take more and more financial strain.

      That’s for sure. As a travel agent too my business was devastated and will take years to recover. Thankfully it is slowly starting for US travel.

  2. The returning of the light certainly helps! I am written this at 5:45 and we still have a bit of light!

      I feel like a cat when I put my head back and just soak in the little bit of light that comes through our living room window. 🙂

    The coming spring adds so much more lightness to our hearts. The worst burden for the mental part may be over. Like you, the increased sunlight, the warmer temps, the first flowers blossoming brings so much light to the inner world too.
