Sigh. I miss strolling around the city like this.
But, I will be traveling to Florida twice next month, and honestly? This weather makes me unbelievably productive. It makes me prepare meals and clean and read and write and Wii Fit and do laundry and crawl into bed early. (Basically, the cold keeps me indoors.) I love getting things done and this new routine I've accidentally stumbled into.
I was truly spoiled this Valentines Day! My family gave me a Kate Spade multi pearls ring, Hunter wellies, a Barnes & Nobles gift card, and far too many treats. Luckily, none of these presents make me particularly pine for Spring. They are all things I can use now. Few things are sweeter than instant gratification.
Complaining about the cold I won't do, but scoffing at the snow, I will. I've never cared for it. Like I've said before, I grew up in eighty degree Decembers. Christmas ornaments adorned palm trees. No firs (or furs) in Florida.
Winter makes every day an adventure. Getting dressed in the morning is a challenge (albeit not always a fun one) and I love a challenge. Rain gives me an excuse to wear my new boots. Wind can provide an impromptu workout. But snow, I am snowver you. Snow thanks and snow long. You are good for plays-on-words and nothing else. Try again next year!
