Cabin Fever? Who, me?

Hi! This afternoon on the local news some guy was talking about cures for cabin fever!

Keep busy. Clean your closets. Call a friend. Stick your head outside once or twice a day, just lean out..no need to put your boots on. Balance your checkbook. Do your taxes.


So I went to the beach....
Yep, it snowed again. But it was so pretty!

Softest pearl grey, a hint of peach.

And see the brave little seabirds, sanderlings....

Here's a solitary seashell on the barren beach...

And snow falling on the huge cargo ships....

Sunset and snow squalls over New Jersey (un-retouched color!).

The beach was cold but exhilarating, the perfect cure for cabin fever. I came home feeling buoyant. And hungry.

So I made spaghetti and meatballs from scratch for dinner....Yum!

What do you all do for cabin fever?

PS On Sunday I have an even  better cure! The January flea market! It's the only market from December to April...I am hoping for a blue and white platter. Maybe some keys or bottles...or...Valentines?
