Old Man Winter
I don't want to say it, but I have to.....I think old man winter is rubbing his hands together and smirking.
It's just been downright dreary and wintery around here.
Now, don't think I'm complaining, I'm really not, this is one winter I'm looking forward to. Come next year I may have completely changed my mind, actually by January I may be crying for a truce and begging the old man to move away.
For now though, I'm loving it.
It's been raining, it's been cold, there's frost everywhere in the mornings, the days are shorter and the sun is rising much later. Beautiful Autumn days, but very similar to winter which leads me to believe that the old man is going to make an early appearance.
This morning found me snuggled in bed with my laptop, my kleenex and a nice hot cup of coffee. I didn't want to get up, honestly, but had so much to get done that I couldn't just lay there.
So I braved it, hobbled on out, started the fire and then sat by the living room window for a bit, just enjoying the rain and the start of the day.
I kinda want snow to come....I know, I know, call me crazy. But I sorta, kinda, maybe do?
For now though I'll just be happy with what I'm getting, because this weather does allow for some wonderful moments spent snuggled with a good book and a crochet blanket. Speaking of which, I think I'll head to my bed this very moment.
Have a blessed night sweet friends :)
