I love cold weather. I love the feel of a fire in the fireplace, a mug of hot chocolate warming my hands and cozy sweaters with sleeves that go down to my fingertips. I love the snow, and the crisp feel of the air when it's cold outside. I enjoy shoveling snow in the same way that I enjoy mowing the grass...there's an element of instant gratification that I love. I love wet cold days and the dry ones. I love wearing scarves and gloves, and sleeping with the windows open when it's freezing.
Cool weather seems to finally be making it's way to us in Oklahoma, and I think it's here to stay. This evening has been cold and drizzly, which is perfect weather for snuggling up with a good book and a hot beverage. You'll very seldom hear me complaining about cold temperatures, even when it feels like spring will never come. Summer is just a season that I have to get through so I can have cooler weather again.
So today I am thankful that summer is over and the cooler weather is here to stay.
