I’ve been whining about the weather already because we have officially turned the corner into winter. It’s been hovering around the 30 degree mark and windy. Today we had snow flurries for most of the day. I know why people move to warmer states starting about now. It’s not pleasant here anymore. But I’m thankful today for some warm items: my bed in the morning, a car heater that works, gloves, chocolate peppermint tea, hugs, my cat’s furry belly, homemade tacos, snuggling on the sofa, and long hair.
