Dead Batteries

My batteries are nearly dead; I'm desperately in need of a recharge.  Problem is, I seem to be solar powered, and the sun is not out.  We haven't really seen the sun since early last week, and it's getting depressing.  I feel tired and sluggish, I don't want to do anything but crawl under a blanket and read a book.  Exercise?  Ugh, it's hard to drag myself downstairs to work out.  Salad?  No way.  I only want to eat comfort foods, then go back to reading my book.  Blah.

This is what we've had for nearly a week.

This arid part of the country I live in needs some serious moisture, or we will dry up and blow away before June. Fortunately, all of these gray, cloudy days have brought over an inch of rain (and some snow) so far.  For that, I am extremely thankful!  Everything is becoming lush and green, but it's time for the sun to come back out so we can fully enjoy the emerald beauty.  I'm not the only one missing the sun, either.  With all of the dark and overcast days, my tulips are staying closed.  The birds are not singing, and are trying to find places to stay dry.  They're all fluffed up in order to keep warm.  Please Mr. Sunshine, come back to us!  Shine down and warm us up, let the birds sing again, and let the pretty flowers open up and bask in your bright light!

This is more like what I wish we had!
