I don't know who is reading that's in the Bay Area but I'm getting sick of this dreary, blurry weather. If I hear one more person say, "oh but we need this rain so it's good," I will fling my empty latte cup at them, spewing foam and coffee drops everywhere. This is no fun, I need some vitamin D! Yesterday, I grabbed the best sky we've had; this glimmer of light lasted about half an hour.

I'm an indoor girl so I can't imagine what this does to the outdoorsy. I suppose they don't care, it's in their nature. When it was blizzarding last week (CA blizzard- strong winds, heavy rain, thunder and hail), I was more than pleased to stay at home. As soon as I step outside, my hair gets frizzier than an 80s perm. It makes me a bit of a recluse.

So I have ventured to Starbucks for breakfast, armed with a skinny cinnamon dolce latte (first one, delish!), and one of Tina's 3 Minute Cookies (love these! thanks Tina!). My photos are as blurry as our atmosphere.

This is my fourth cookie- I've started calling it the Microwave Breakfast Cookie, since the original title doesn't illustrate the concept as well. The words 'cookie' and 'microwave' communicate ease and deliciousness. :-) Still Tina's recipe tho! I leave out the raisins (don't like them) and it's a great breakfast with a scoop of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter and some Suite Apple granola.

How do you beat the blues after two weeks of no sunshine?

I hate the dreary as well! It was pretty dreary in Charleston at the beginning of this month and I'm so glad the sunshine and warmth is returning. I will keep my fingers crossed that the same happens for you VERY soon. <3 bucks ;) I have Tina's cookies on my to make list!

It's been super dreary in Atlanta too - and I'm an outdoorsy person and it does affect me! I have NO idea how to "beat the blues" - wish I knew!!
