January 23rd: How do you beat the winter blues?

What winter blues? Winter stars in October and ends in April (of course when Baby S was born in May it snowed). At their shortest the sun is up for 4 hours. You have to make the best of it.


                                                            April hike


March. Skiing is always fun

February. Long walks can be tough

January. Brings the cold

December. You hardly make it out before the sun is gone

Cranky Baby! No Nov. Must go

October. WInter is coming

  1. Our winter is nothing like that but this winter has been colder than usual. I still make it a point to get out every day so there are no winter blues here either.

  2. Your photos are gorgeous, but 7 months of winter sounds terrible.

  3. I can't imagine living in a country that hardly sees daylight in some winter months. However I think that there are some pluses and you show them. I am sort of envious too!

  4. Ha! That's the spirit.

    I think I would love winter if I had your scenery though. IT's always so beautiful.

  6. I start to get cranky when the days grow short. Winter in October is way too early for me! But I do love the beautiful pics of snowy landscapes :)

  7. the winter blues have never really bothered me, since I like the season but if I ever feel down I just go out and DO something to get me out of it.

  8. Love your photos of winter. I grew up in California sunshine so now, living where winter is from late November to mid March, is fantastic to me (I'm not a heat person).

    1. Awww sunshine! Well that would be lovely too. And heat, ha, I think it is warm at -+20c. That is enough summer for me

  10. Great pictorial look at winters in Finland! So little sun... that would be depressing. We have about 9 hours of sun during Solstice. WOW - that's over double yours and I still feel like it's not enough.

    1. Thanks!

      Well it does suck when it is dark when you go to work, and dark when you get home. And without the snow it is reeeeeally dark.

      But we are already up to 6,5 hours od daylight. Gotta move fast so we can get to 20h in the summer lol

  11. Those four hour days must be awful. I struggle when we get to 7.5 hours. The one thing about the snow is it does make everything brighter, epsecially when the sun comes out. Here it is just dismal and gray with rain and more rain. Love your pics!

  13. Beautiful photos. Lets just say that I am glad that winter doesn't last quite that long around here.

  14. Oh winter, how I love thee. We just had a nice snowstorm that brought us 11 inches of fresh white snow. It's a winter wonderland outside! Speaking of...time to take the pup for a walk.

  15. I confess that I do get the winter blues, but I beat 'em by drinking lots of hot cocoa and snuggling up with a book!

  16. Photos of you! :D

    Gah, I definitely have the winter blues now - it's SO DAMN COLD and it just goes on and on.
