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.

You gotta admit that four different distinct seasons are nice too! Thought fall was your favorite!!!

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! ;)
