In California, I would often complain about the sun--too hot, too bright, the constant need for sunglasses to shield my eyes and sunscreen to keep my super fair skin from turning lobster-hued. Oh, how wrong I was! Though it hasn't been a particularly cold or snowy winter in Manhattan, it has been a cloudy one. And tall buildings = a lot of sun blockage. So now whenever it's a clear day, I scurry outside and try to soak up as many winter rays as possible. It's ridiculous how much getting direct sunlight recharges me and ups my energy level...I feel like a plant.
And painting my fingernails to match! At least this way I can bring a little sunshine with me wherever I go.
