I don’t like cold weather. Any cold weather. I’m a complete wimp about it. I grew up in the deep, deep south of the United States, where Christmas is regularly celebrated in 80 degrees.
I still live in the south, but not south enough, so now it’s cold and I’m not happy.
But I’m trying to practice gratitude. So here are the things I do like about the cold.
- clear skies and bright stars
- the smell of smoke on the wind
- cozy cuddles
- jeans and boots
- bright scarves
- hot food
- no mosquitos
- no cockroaches
- no spiders
- not sweating through my clothes
I don’t like any of those things nearly as much as I like hot sunshine and bare feet and long days and actually enjoying the outside, but I’m trying.
What is your list?
