Where is the sun?

Well here it is a couple weeks have gone by without blogging.

I am now living in Portland where the wettest spring on record has just ran it's course.

Now we are moving in to more of the same for summer, according to the "National Weather Service".

I read that on-line yesterday and it actually took the wind right out of me.

Depression is setting in fast.

I kept saying this summer I am going to paint the kitchen cabinets, install crown molding, paint the master bath, finish the closet, and sit on the porch and have a cold drink. None of that is happening.

The flowers I planted a month ago are trying hard to bloom, that ain't happening either.

I feel guilty for complaining when so many others have it worse than this, but how does a person survive with out sun? We have had 4 full days of sun since April 1, unbelievable huh.

I have managed to dig out an UFO to work on, a "mile a minute" scrap bag project.

Happy Quilting!


  1. Hey-- your problems are real to you.... I know the feeling. I had 2 weeks of cloudy days and I just can't seem to get the groove thing going. You know what I finally did? I made of list of what I was going to do today...no matter what. I kept telling myself that my attitude would get batter. and it did... try it.. just baby steps. With the tough winters like we both get you'd like we'd have sunny days all summer.... Hang in there.

  2. Hi Janet! So glad to see you're back to blogging! I've missed reading your posts. :) We are having the hottest summer on record here in Va and it's just horrible! I know, I know, who can complain about this much sunshine. But's it's more the heat that's killing everyone. I lived in Seattle for awhile and loved it out your way. Actually, I loved the temps! :) Glad to see your back online. I'll keep watching for your posts! Have a great week!

  3. When I spoke to my mother Sunday (she lives in Salem area) she was sort of complaining about the same thing. However, she's lived in that area most of her 85 years, so she's kind of used to it. Cheer up! The sun really does shine in Oregon and it is soooo beautiful! The scrap bag project looks like so much fun. I have started liking scrap quilts more lately.

  4. I know coming from Idaho to Oregon it is a shock to the system. But over time you will get use to it. Enjoy the day.
