Catching Fireflies

finding magic along the way

Filling the Long Gray Days

Winter and spring in Central New York can be difficult. Long gray days stretch ahead of you with no relief. The air is damp and chilly; the world around you is muddy and ugly. These are the weeks between the pristine snowfall and the pink flowering trees. They can seem endless.

Or they can be the perfect excuse to stay inside and wallow in a good book.

Or they can be the impetus for starting something new.

For cleaning out the closets and organizing the drawers.

For trying a new form of expression – writing, painting, drawing, dancing around the house.

For making some noise on a new instrument.

For taking an online class in a topic that has always interested you.

For catching up on Netflix. 

For attempting yoga, or meditation.

For napping.

I try not to let cold, rainy days get me down. I use them as an excuse to not leave the comfort of my home. I have always said that if I am ever quarantined to my house for a month, it would be wonderful. There is so much I want to do and never enough time to do it. 🙂


  1. And what have you planned 😊?

    • While I am all for a good book and a long nap with the cats, I am hoping to be more productive than I usually am… stay tuned for the next few posts to find out what I have planned!

      • I will 😊 more productive yrs I would like to be that too 😊
