Today is my first true cold, rainy day in Seattle. I’ve been wearing my winter coat (without layers), as it’s warm and water resistant. I have to say I love it. The weather I mean. Though I do like my coat.
I’ve always been fonder of the cold than the heat. Warm weather is best enjoyed on a beach, under a palm tree with cocktails, and a nice ocean breeze blowing and good. Not in a stifling, humid, landlocked location.
This is the first actual Fall I’ll have been through in a while. I’m safely inside watching the weather, I have copious amounts of tea, and I’ve stashed left over stew in the fridge. I may be an oddball – but I really love it. It would be better if the BF were here, but I’ll manage.
The only reason I need to step outside is to walk the dog. I even enjoy that. Feeling the cold wind, watching my breath condense and warming my hands in my pockets. It makes coming back home all the more comfortable.
I may have a change of heart by the new year; but for now, I say “Bring it!”
