A Day to Snuggle…

The cold snap has passed.  It is becoming a distant memory of this past week.  The cold was bitter, and we are in the south.  I can only imagine how cold it was in New England this week.

I loved being able to dress in winter things.  I pulled out my real winter gloves, my scarves, my knit hat and my winter coat.  I still shivered when walking the dog.  It was wonderful to feel the cold again.  It makes you feel alive, at least it does me.

Today I walked the dog without a jacket.  The heat is turned off in the house.  Yet, today, I feel more like it is winter than I did in the cold.  Today is a dark, windy, rainy day.  Branches have blown off trees today.  The water in the pond is dancing under the wind.  The sky is threatening more rain.  To coin a phrase widely used around the campfire, it was a dark and dreary night….

It is a good day to climb on the couch, wrap up in a blanket and sleep.  A deep winter’s sleep.  I have thought about a good nap all day long.  But, laundry had called and it is almost dinner time, so no naps today.

I hope you have a calm, restful weekend.  DAF

  1. It was a dark, wet, and stormy night, no. no. It was… I agree my friend, in fact, I agree so much that I jumped into my jammers, got my lap blanket, and climbed into my new “reclin-a-rocker” (I just love sayin’ that word) *hahaha* We were going to run an errand this evening but it’s so cold and wet that we decided to stay in. Pizza anyone?! 😉 Loved this post and could see you and puppy braving the elements around the neighborhood. Be careful of those weakened branches though.

Let me know what you think!
