It rained for a second straight day in a row today. I can’t remember the last time that happened. I know it didn’t happen in July so we might have had two days of rain in June. In any case, the skies were gray and the ground was slick today. I must admit it left me with a case of the Mondays for most of the day. This was surprising to me since I’ve experience numerous dreary Vancouver winters without too many ill effects.
I can probably attribute the blahs to a few things. First, I didn’t get a very good night of sleep last night so this most likely had a lot to do with it. Without energy, the clouds and the rain does nothing to help you feel full of vigor. Second, I think I’ve been spoiled by the nearly endless days of sunshine. I think all the blue skies and sunshine has conditioned my body to expect this as the norm. I’ve also been in the sun a lot more this summer so not basking in the rays for two days straight seems foreign now. Lastly, I didn’t do much today. Outside of having lunch with my parents, I didn’t have a “to-do” list to check off. On most days, I try to get something tangible done. It could be something simple as getting some exercise, cooking, cleaning, or running an errand but as long as the day has some sort of purpose, I feel good about the passage of that day. I probably should have done some laundry today but I just couldn’t get off my ass.
I’m looking forward to getting back on track tomorrow. I’ll start off with the laundry and we’ll take it from there. I’m also planning on meeting up with some friends and that’s always a good thing, no matter what the weather is. The sun is supposed to return on Tuesday and I’m looking forward to that!
