Gloomy morning ennui

There’s no getting around it. It’s a gloomy morning. It’s not raining hard enough for me to settle in with a mug of tea or a good book and actually wallow in the gloom. When it’s not really doing anything outside, that seems excessively over-indulgent.

So for now I am soldiering through, trying to pretend it’s just another day, which it is. My area certainly needs rain, and I don’t begrudge any actual days of rain, but when it’s not raining and is still this gloomy, doesn’t that seem excessive, too? Get on with it, already! Rain or don’t rain but let’s not just gloom along for days on end.

We're stuck in the gloom too but it's snowing here...

Lynne: Yikes, gloom and snow--not the best combination, eh? I hope the snow isn't too bad this time around.

Lynne said it before I could! It's a wet, messy snow that will probably be gone in a few days, but it's hard to find anything pretty about snow in April.

No gloom here or rain…or snow. Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

Okay, I'm over it—Hooray!—well, almost.

Happy April Fool's Day!

Hooray!

Deb: I hope your snow melts as soon as it hits the ground!

Gris: Happy April Fools' Day to you too. No foolin'
