rainy day-inside and out

We were under a winter weather advisory last night, icey roads expected this morning but this it was a bit warmer than forcasted so it was just a cold rain. Somehow it seems a fitting day for how I'm feeling. I don't know what is wrong with me. Just feeling so overwhelmed with life in general. This picture is kinda how I feel as I'm on this journey in this season of my life. I must get a grip on myself. I'm not being any good for myself or my family.
I don't even understand what I'm feeling. Do you ever get that way?
On a better note, today is my dear hubbys birthday! I made him a banana pudding last night and fixing beef stew and homemade biscuits for today. Smells good in here.
Thinking about treating myself to a manicure.
Christmas in 12 days!!! Wow! We have all the major things bought, just need to get a few more stocking stuffers and I need to get dh something. I still have cards and a package or two to send out. Gotta get that done early this week.
Have a blessed Sunday

Oh,Patty...
I feel like that more than I'd like to admit. Thankfully, blessfully, God "shakes" it out of me and I don't even know it - I just know that I feel better. Hope that you are feeling better, now!

Man.... that banana pudding, beef stew, and homemade biscuits sounds too delicious!!!! Could you maybe post your homemade biscuit recipe?
That all sounds soooooooo good!!!

Merry Christmas,
Julie

I'm kinda feeling the same way. Hope your hubby's b-day was special-sounds like you had some good eats.

I know what you mean, Patty.. I think it's the weather. We've had so many gloomy rainy days, I've had to fight off blue moods all year.
Happy Birthday to your Hubby- and the menu sounds wonderful!

Totally been there, done that with the feeling strangely overwhelmed thing-- felt that way most of this past year, in fact. Sigh. I'm finding that I have to totally overhaul the way I've been taking care of myself, but I've been too stubborn to admit that--until now. Anyway, hang in there and do the best you can with what you've been given, and ask God to show you if there's anything you're missing-- and all will be well eventually. Happy birthday to your hubby! Hugs, Debra
