I am in a serious…not really depression…a bit blue?, maybe…at loose ends? aha!; a malaise.
Let’s pause for a moment and consider what a marvelous word. Malaise. A bit depressed, blue mood, a tad twitchy, not really unwell but definitely not right and terribly Edwardian (isn’t it? or maybe Victorian, at least in English.. much longer I’m sure for French – oh well – you get the point). Cranky but with style.
Back to the point: my little area of the world has had snow and bitter cold and the accompanying treacherous roads making one and all doubly housebound. (The first housebound (at least for me) is a really wild outbreak that is determined not to peak and fall.) No lovely sun – until today – but still too cold for enjoyment. I know. Grumpy. But with the sun putting in an appearance, I do feel a bet perkier and a bit guilty for complaining when I know there are many without to keep themselves warm. Hmm. Now I’m feeling guilty and cranky.
Okay. No more sulking. I’ll make a hot chocolate and read the silliest book on my shelves. And hope this passes quickly and/or I shake myself out of it. Oh my. a bad thought here… March is usually my malaise(y) month! I promise not to type anything in the month of March! Be cheery today for me!
