Lately everyone seems to be commenting on their strange weather. It’s no different here. It’s been unusually warm. Beautiful weather in fact. The kids are pulling off coats, attempting to convince me that it’s t-shirt weather. The snow is melting, mud puddles are forming, spring is in the air.
It’s feels like April.
Now, I’m not ungrateful. It’s nice and all but, to be perfectly honest, I’m missing winter. I certainly realize I’m blessed not to head out to work in it or wait for buses in it (I don’t miss those days) but where are the cozy times snuggled up against the cold? Watching snow fall and enjoying hot drinks by the fire (or in our case, by the candles). Wrapping up in blankets with a book. Rosy cheeks, red noses and brushing off the cold.
We did have a couple of cold snaps but it hasn’t felt like winter. Now that the dark days of winter are passing I’m ready for some snow days. Winter always brings a change in our pace and I’m missing my winter nesting time. Winter has never been a favourite of mine but it’s place is perfect. A rest at the end of the busiest season and a rest before we start fresh in spring.
I can’t believe I’m saying it but what happened to winter?
How about you? Are you missing winter or getting more than enough of it? Perhaps you’re enjoying summer in another part of the world and winter is a distant memory. Guess I’d better get out and soak up some Vitamin D while I can.
