But, alas, winter has arrived. Even Cataleena is bundling up in her scarf! Brrrr.....!
I'm a warm weather person. I like to garden, to ride in the mountains. I like to wear shorts, and even though I shouldn't, I like to get a tan. Skiing and snow sports hold no appeal for me, even though I live close to three world-class resorts.
I hate winter. Breaking ice tops the reasons. Yes, there are tank heaters, but I was shocked badly once when I was young, and I don't trust my horses, dogs or ducks not to electrocute themselves. Gloves and heavy coats, ugh! The short days and long, cold nights. Double ugh. I just don't care for any of it. I also have SADD, meaning I need sun, and a lot of it, to feel really good.
Right now, just before Christmas, it's crazy. I work retail, so have picked up extra hours that keep me jumping. I have several projects, all calling my name. Two edits on books releasing in the spring, a partial for a pitch that I hope goes well, and two other stories, both vying for my attention.
After the New Year, I'll be able to focus on them.My job will slow down and we'll be in a feeding routine by then. The only good thing about the long, cold, dark days is the time to work inside. I can focus on the stories because there is so much less outside distracting me.
Still, I prefer summer! How about you, when are you most productive?
