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.
