We've had a gorgeous weather year so far since October and I am NOT complaining, that's for sure! We haven't had any snow yet and the temperatures have been downright springlike many days. My husband played golf Christmas week - I don't think that's ever happened before.
But this week the chill finally settled in and now it feels like winter. Leaving my house Tuesday morning for the hospital was downright inhuman, with wind chills dipping into the low 30s. I really hate the wind in the winter! The same wonderful breeze we love in the summer becomes the enemy in the winter. I can deal with the cold, but the wind does me in.
So for a couple days we had cold. But they are predicting by the weekend it will warm up again. I like the sound of that.
I actually look forward to the first snowfall every year. But I like it when its convenient. I prefer it on a weekend when there are no big plans afoot, allowing me to sit at home and watch it from the comfort of my living room, cozy and warm in front of my fireplace. It's kitting and reading weather and the perfect excuse to stay at home and do nothing but bake and watch TV,
But....I'm not sure I'm ready yet. We just haven't had enough of a shoulder season, you know? A few weeks in the 40s, then down to the 30s, and we can slowly adjust to it all.
Well - too late now. Winter is here. Only three months until spring so bring it on!!!
