What Season Are You?

So I finally get the sty in my right eye cleared up and doesn't one form in my left eye over the weekend... It's enough to give a person a complex, you know. My grandmother always said that you get styes from peeing in the alley. HA! I swear I haven't done that in years. Just kidding. I've had eye infections my whole life. I think it's because I have such nasty allergies. And I'm constantly rubbing my eyes. Terrible habit, I know. But I think therein lies the problem. And tea bags taped to my eyes is a big pain in the old patootie. Anywhoop - Kari from Just Living Large suggested rubbing my wedding ring over it. Something about the metals and it being all better. So I'm waiting to see how this turns out. Thanks for the tip, Kari!

I know that I mentioned this before. But I hate winter. I am so sick and tired of being bundled up. I'm tired of our gas bill. I'm tired of having to wear shoes (I'm a barefoot girl in the summer.) And I'm longing for the day. You remember "day" don't you? We only see it a few short hours now. I'm so looking forward to sitting on my porch until well past 5 o'clock and being able to enjoy the sun. I miss the sun. That stupid groundhog will probably see his shadow this Saturday. Interesting fact about old Phil. Did you know that the way they determine if he has seen his shadow or not is based on his desire to mate? Doesn't that just take the cake? If the little bugger is horny and anxious to jump Philomena - spring is right around the corner. If he is listless and not too terribly interested in his partner's needs (typical man) then it's 6 more weeks of winter folks. YUCK! Well at least Lent is right around the corner. That's something to look forward to.

Here's a little quiz for this gloomy Monday morning. I had suspected this all along...

You Belong in Summer

Energetic, creative, and very curious about the world...
You're not going to let anything hold you back, especially a cold day.
Whether you're chilling out at the beach or partying all night, you live for the warm weather.

Good Morning Julie,
I took the little quiz to see what Season I am. Here is what it said about me.
You Belong in Spring

Optimistic, lively, and almost always happy with the world...
You can truly appreciate the blooming nature of spring.
Whether you're planting flowers or dyeing Easter eggs, spring is definitely your season!

I dont' think it's right tho. I love Fall more than any other Season. We are under another Freezing Fog Advisory here this morning until 9:00a.m. They say it's suppose to get up into the 50's today, but we will see. They said that for yesterday too, but it only made it up to 39 degrees. I do hope your sty goes away. I hope the rubbing of your Wedding Ring on it works. I've never heard of that before. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Sties hurt! Hope yours leaves quickly. We have Octorara Orphie here instead of Phil. Those Groundhog Lodges creep me out, all those old white men in top hats and lab coats.

You are so fun. Milo says thanks for the big hug and kiss. Hope your other eye gets better quickly. Our temperatures have been fairly mild here,so I am not suffering from winter doldrums,though a trip to the beach is desired, and right now it's a bit too cold for that. Long day today with lots of grading and class...ahh Monday. Hope you have a fab day dear beautiful friend.

Oh, I'm Autumn: Intelligent, introspective, and quite expressive at times...
You appreciate the changes in color, climate, and mood that fall brings
Whether you're carving wacky pumpkins or taking long drives, autumn is a favorite time of year for you.

Yes, I love autumn, really, who doesn't. But, I love all the seasons really, especially summer.

I belong in Winter... maybe it is because I haven't been where you are,but snowed in with big fires and soup and a warm blanket and movie sound like heaven to me.

BittersweetPunkin said...

I'm supposed to be Autumn but it told me I was not right!

I hope you have a great day Julie!

What do you do if you're not married? Grab the hand of the closest married person and start rubbing away?


NeereAnDear said...

I am fall... it hit the nail right on the head with that one.... I am definitely a fall person...

Nice quiz...

Thank you for the congrats on my bliss guild feature... I am as proud as a peacock



Cottage Contessa said...

Hiya Sweetie! I'm sorry you are sick of Winter, I understand that feeling. I am sick of Summer. The humidity often makes me feel sick and brings on migraines. Oh how I long for Winter here! That quiz was lots of fun! I was Autumn. Sounds about right too. Hope you're having a lovely warm day sweetie!

I belong in the fall...which is perfect! Fall is my favorite season and I love it so much!
Hope your eye gets better! Those pesky things are such a nuisance!
Take care!

I am done done done with the rain here! Everything is soggy, my hair is frizzy...toes are cold, oh hurry up Spring!!! I sent you something via email ;)


Scrappy Moments said...

Hi Julie,

I get stys all the time, not fun. The metal does help I have done the same thing before, very good advice. Winter Depresses me too. In fact Yesterday I was going to go shopping at our Thrith store here in town and it snowed all day, we got 7 inches, so I am hoping it melts soon, I hate driving in snow , and what's worse is ice under the snow, ughhh! I will be so happy when Spring is Here :)


Rosemary said...

Hi Julie,
Sorry about your eye.
I guess I am a Spring, even though Fall is my favorite time of year.
Have a great rest of your day,

Tammy said...

I am Spring...

Optimistic, lively, and almost always happy with the world...
You can truly appreciate the blooming nature of spring.
Whether you're planting flowers or dyeing Easter eggs, spring is definitely your season!

Love it...spring or fall are my very favorites!

I hope your eye is better soon!

Kari (GrannySkywalker) said...

Well hey - someone dab some perfume behind Philomena's ears why don't 'cha!

Cris said...

I belong in Winter!!! Do you want to switch places, it's Summer down here Julie... Nice to have you back...

joan said...

Hi Julie,

I am sick of winter also. I know I belong in a warmer climate in the winter. But have you noticed that it's staying lighter later. Yes it is, we are on the upside girl and going towards Spring. Just keep repeating that. :-)

Mary said...

I think we should get you to the eye doctor, and get Phil some Viagra!

Sandi said...

I'm so glad you're back. And glad your sty is cleared up!

Sling said...

This is my season;
You Belong in Winter

Quiet, calm, and totally at peace...
You're happy to be at home, wrapped in a blanket, completely snowed in
Whether you're lighting a fire or having a snowball fight, you always feel best in the winter.

..If it's actually Winter,and not this incessant California drizzly crap!..
Give me snow,hot buttered Rum,and coyotes howling at a full moon that glistens off a vrirgin white landscape!

BellaColle said... too..Summer all the way babe!
We try and pump ourselves up seeing how long the sun stays up! it made it to almost 5!! yay..
hope your eye gets better soon!!

justabeachkat said...

Oh, I'm so ready for spring too! Sorry about your eyes! I haven't had one in years and years (yep, just knocked on wood!). Sure hope it clears up quickly. Hope Kari is right.


(gosh, it's so nice to have you back!)

Anita said...

My answer was right on the money... I'm Autumn, which is my favorite season! :)
I love bits and pieces of all the seasons, but even I'm getting tired of winter this year... *sigh*

Esther Sunday said...

ARRRGGGGG!!!! I know I am NOT winter! We have about 4 to 5 feet of snow right now and much more on the way!!!!! Beam me up, Scotty.
Love, Esther

Emiline said...

Yeah, right. I saw you peeing in an alley, just the other day! Don't try to hide it.

Just kidding.

I miss warm weather, and daylight, too. I'm a summer girl. I love not having to bundle up. I like to be free and run around my house naked.
Just kidding, again.

Have a great Mon/Tues, Julie!

BittersweetPunkin said...

Hey Julie...tell Jesse I am missing reading his blog too.....

Ruth Welter said...

Hey there Julie, hope you are feeling better real soon. I'm also plagued by allergies and they are the worst.

Regarding the seasons...the question to me really is, which season are you not.LOL Because the one season I'm not, is winter. Like you, I hate this time of year and if I had my way, I would skip it. LOL

I love the other 3 seasons but my favorite is summer. Due to the fact that my garden is in full swing, this is my happiest time of the year.

melissa @ the inspired room said...

Ok, I belong in fall. I could've guessed that, but now I know for sure!

Hope your eyes clear up for good, you poor dear!


Sandy said...

Hi Julie. Both my hubby and I both are spring/summer kids! That is why we walk in the winter, and take dancing lessons, and ... anything to get out of the winter blues!
It's almost Feb! One month closer to spring - yay! Sandy

Counting Your Blessings said...

I've been holding out for Spring ever since Fall =) Blessings... POlly

Sharon said...

Hi Julie! I didn't realize you were up and running again! Welcome back to the world of blogging, we all missed you!

I'm sorry you're not enjoying winter. I am still liking it especially now because we have snow. I love all the seasons, but I think fall is my favorite.

I hope your eye gets better.

Hugs, Sharon
