Today is Thursday, January 26 2017. This has been a gray and dreary January here in Barnegat NJ. We have had only five sunny days this month. Four of the sunny days have been on Sundays. Interesting, huh?
This year we have not had more than one consecutive day of sunny days. And the “sun will not come out tomorrow” or the next day or the day after that.
No wonder I am SAD. Yes, I believe I have been affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder.
But, hooray, after two days of a horrific nor’easter, yesterday was one of those five sunny days.
At aerobics, as we grapevined, jumping jacked, lifted and squatted, our collective spirits were visibly lifted by the most beautiful of blue sky. The usual grimaces were replaced with smiles, winks and nods. No grunts and groans yesterday, instead we ahh and oohed as we danced to the music in our sun filled ballroom.
I wonder if those who live in “sun almost every day” climates jiggle and giggle more often.
