The temperature here in Houston has dipped into the range that can officially be labeled “cool,” and it has actually lasted more than two days. In general, I would much rather be hot than cold, but I’m trying to look on the bright side of life. So in the spirit of optimism, here is my list of things that I like about this weather.
The clothes. Are winter clothes not the best? There is just something about a sweater. I would wear them year-round if I could, but instead I’ll just enjoy the 2-3 months that I can pull them off without sweating myself into dehydration.
Warm drinks. I mentioned that I’m enjoying coffee lately, and now I can tell you that it’s SO much better when it’s not a hundred degrees outside. Sometimes–when I am dragging myself out of bed before 5 a.m., or facing up to the fact that there is not enough hot water to stay in the shower forever–the thought of a warm cup of coffee gives me the motivation I need to take that step. I just cannot believe I have turned into one of those people.
Cuddling. Even though I hate being cold, I have convinced David to leave the heater off for as long as possible because I have turned into some kind of money-saving madwoman. It probably dips below 50 in our house at night now, but that’s fine with me because this way David will cuddle up next to me all night long. I don’t think I have ever slept better than I have these past few days. The only problem is, getting up is a real drag.
That’s it. That’s the end of my list. Now what about you? What do you love about cold weather?
