Everyday Life: Something warm

Forty six degrees for a high in early October reminds me that weather doesn't always adhere to the calendar as religiously as I do.

For a summertime girl, this early, gripping cold snap is hard for me to swallow. I like to enjoy the beautiful changing leaves while lingering outside not from the living room window. It's just so cold ...

The floors are cold when I get out of bed and begin making breakfast.

The car is cold when I load the boys in even during the high-sun times of the autumn afternoons.
My nose, toes and fingers are cold all.of.the.time.now.

Add illnesses and the unfortunate loss of a loved family member to the mix during this blustery week, and it's no wonder even my heart was starting to feel the effects of this chill.

I wasn't ready for winter in October.

Luckily, I found something that warmed me today.



Nothing like a little bit of love to do the job.

There's nothing better than good conversation ... but not while talking to myself. Will you play a part in this discussion?

AND will you pretty please have your email linked to your account or leave it for me so I can respond?

Thanks for taking the time to make these thoughts into conversation.
