The Ups and Downs of a Snowbunny

I do not always understand what makes me tick, but I have a pretty good idea that the weather has something to do with it. I live for cold weather. I cannot explain it, but it energizes me. I like gray sky's and even rainy days are nice as long as there is a chill in the air. I don't think that there is a problem that God made me that way....the problem is I live in Florida!!
Sunday was one of my better days. Cloudy, breezy and a wonderful high in the 50's. I could not stop smiling, I wasn't interested in taking a nap that afternoon. I fixed me a second pot of coffee and just enjoyed the day.
Today is Wednesday and it began rainy and now it is a "balmy" ( I even dislike saying that word!) 80 degrees and my back porch is hot and sticky and my air conditioner is running and it is JANUARY!!!
We are tentatively planning a ski trip for next month. Just thinking about that makes me giddy with excitement. Keep your islands and your beaches and give me a cabin and a fireplace, throw in falling snow and a large chunky mug of coffee and you have found my happy place.
So to all my pals under blankets, donning boots and coats....enjoy a winter day for me and if you ever need to be "balmy" you know where to find me.

I am the exact same way and find my favorite days are the cool gray ones with just a little sun! I don't know how you do it in Florida as I know I would not be a happy camper at all! :) But I guess we go where God puts us and have to learn how to deal with it and it looks like you are doing a great job at that! ;)
