Cabin Fever?

Do you find yourself...

yearning for sunshine, when all you see is gray and white out your window?

wanting desperately to go somewhere besides the grocery store?

wondering how snow can last for 2-3 months without melting?

doing a bad imitation of an ice skater as you try to get your mail?

looking at gardening catalogues and magazines and sighing out loud?

Yep - that's cabin fever, and I must say, I have it really bad!!

So, my cure for this feeling of being closed in is...


On Tumblr, there are lots of like-minded women (and a few men, I am sure) 
who post photos that take me on little mini vacations, feed my soul and
make me laugh. It is sometimes where I go to escape bad tv and to recover from a bad cold.

So to celebrate the fact that warmer and sunnier days will come,
I put together a mosaic to bring beauty and light into our days.

Each of these photos are on my Tumblr blog where the sources are listed with the photos.
Some I are photos I found and some are from other Tumblrs that I reblogged.

Good morning, Laurie - your mosaic is gorgeous!

Yesterday, our internet access was so slow that I couldn't do anything with my Tumblr or blog - and I missed it so much! :)

I don't get cabin fever because the Colorado skies are blue most days, but I do love all the beautiful images and mini-vacations I can take with Tumblr. I'm so glad that you enjoy it too - yours is so pretty!

Wishing you a happy day,

What a lovely mosaic! I just love all the color! Hang in there, Spring will be here before we know it. :) Kit

Oh, I just LOVE all of these photos...and yes, even in Texas we long for an escape, maybe not from 2-3 months of snow, but definitely those sunless days! It's good to be back in the blogging world :))

Oh! I love it!! Beautiful pictures. We just got our first day of warmth and sunshine and it makes such a difference in the way I feel. Wishing you some sun!

Oh, I'm sorry for you being snowed in for so long. Your photos are beautiful.

Lovely verse and gorgeous mosaic.
I had not heard of Tumblr, beautiful pastel pics there too.

Came by to say hello, Laurie. I heard about horrible temps in Minnesota this weekend. We're in the low teens but that's a heat wave to you, I think. Bundle up and drink your tea. The Lord will send spring again. He promised. :)

Have a blessed Lord's Day.

I've never heard of Tumblr and will have to take a look.

I never get cabin fever - too many projects to work on inside. Once the weather warms, I'm outside till after dark!!
