It is what it is…

This is a phrase that has been used a lot lately.  I’ve said it to myself on more than one occasion, and my mom and my grandma have both said it once or twice lately during long distance phone conversations.  The holidays are here, but I feel as gray as the weather here in Ohio. We put the tree up this weekend, which helped a little.  But between the lack of daylight and some personal business I just can’t seem to keep my chin up.

But, as they say, “it is what it is”.  I’m trying to just keep moving forward.  When you can’t change your circumstances you have to make the best of things.

I’m keeping my self busy with my own work as well as on Cotton & Brass.  The living room is nearly finished and I’m starting to put together some plans for the work we plan to do on the bathroom this spring.  It helps to take my mind off things.  I’m eagerly awaiting the 3rd season of Downton Abbey.  If you can’t wait and need some British drama, you should look up Casualty 1900s (also known as London Hospital), a BBC show that has many of the same qualities.  I also picked up a Mandolin during the sales a few weeks ago.  I’m considering taking some lessons at the little music shop downtown.  For now, I’m enjoying picking away at it and learning a few songs via Youtube.
