It is cold and blowing and snowing outside today and I love it. I really enjoy this weather, at least from inside the house. The snow is so beautiful, both on the ground and in the air that it makes my heart sing. The cold weather is not as pleasant, but then it's just warm enough inside that you want to curl up in a blanket with a mug of hot chocolate and read a book. What could be more perfect? Well, personally I would say a cup of warm vanilla chai tea would be more perfect than hot chocolate, but both give you that cozy feeling of home. To add to my cozy, homey feelings I have a warm fuzzy cat curled up near me. That is, she's curled up only when she isn't trying to lick the window to death. Even the cat enjoys this weather, because it means there is more moisture on the windows to lick. I always find it amusing when the window freezes over and she tries to lick it. One of these days she is going to get her tongue stuck and I am going to laugh.
We don't usually get a lot of snow where I live, so when we do all I can think of is Christmas. And right now I really feel like putting on some Christmas music and reading The Christmas Hope or The Little Drummer Boy or watching How The Grinch Stole Christmas. I'm personally hoping to get snowed into my house by all this blustery weather, but I doubt that will happen. It isn't snowing quite that much, unfortunately.
I don't know about you, but I have always preferred the cold to heat. When it is hot you just feel lethargic and bored and want to take a nap. But I somehow feel energized when it is cold. I want to jump and shout and sing and run in circles. I also find it easier to warm up than I do to cool down. You can always bundle up more but there is only so much you can take off.
