The Bleak Mid-Winter Coping

Bleak winter The Big Uneasy by Pauline Baird Jones

The bleak mid-winter, that time of year when the days are short, the nights are long, and the weather is colder than a witch’s heart, is a bit of a challenge here in Northern Wyoming. But let’s not despair, there are plenty of ways to make the most of this dreary time of year.

First things first, crank up the SADS lamp and let’s talk clothes. When I lived in the South I would live for those few days I could break out a coat, or even a sweater. I loved being able to turn off the AC and open the window! Oh, fresh air!

Now? I’ve spent the last few months bundled up like a human burrito, and now my winter clothes and I are ready for a break from each other.

The way I’m coping now is by not going outside any more than I can help. Lol It’s not just the cold, it’s the wind! It’s so bad some days I almost get blown across the lawn. 

So what do I do with my bleak mid-winter. I’ve been doing a lot of reading and of course, I working on the next book in my Cyborg’s Chronicles (AzumC). I also thought it would be fun to have surgery (program note: it wasn’t fun, I wouldn’t recommend it). 

If you like going outside, go for it. When was the last time you built a snowman? I’ll watch from the window. 

And let’s not forget about the most important thing about the bleak mid-winter, comfort foods! Now is the time to indulge in all the warm and delicious foods that you’ve been craving all year long. Trust me, there’s nothing more satisfying than a warm bowl of soup, a grilled cheese sandwich or a hot chocolate after a long day outside (or even if you stay inside).

In conclusion, the bleak mid-winter can be tough, but with the right attitude and some creative thinking, you can make the most of it. So, spice up your wardrobe, catch up on your reading, embrace the great outdoors (or not), and indulge in some comfort foods. 

The bleak mid-winter doesn’t have to be that bleak.

If you’re looking for something fun to read on those long winter nights (or even the short days!), check out my Big Uneasy series! Relatively Risky begins the adventure, but you can also get the short story, Family Treed for free!
