It’s been seriously cold, with wind chills in the 20s below zero. Some areas, like near the New England coast, are buried under as much as 7 feet of snow. It’s difficult. I can hardly visualize green grass, can’t imagine going out without multiple layers of clothes.

What to do? Since the calendar will advance at its own inanimate pace, bring some green into your home! A bouquet of flowers and/or a new houseplant will boost your spirits, in a big way! It may not help with clutter, but it/they will make you smile. Just be sure to ask for wrapping for protection against the cold.

Spring WILL come. Like Stevie Wonder’s wonderful song lyric reminds us, “…the seasons know exactly when to change.”

To Combat the Cold, at least Emotionally
