I guess when you get snow that stays on the ground longer than 2 hours in down town Salem in November…winter is here. I cannot believe I am going to say this, but I am so excited. Even though there was no summer to speak of the change feels good.
Why is that? What is so appealing about the change of season? I cannot understand it because I lived in Florida for the last 16 years and never felt bored by all the sun. But now that I experience all the colors, smells and textures of different seasons, it really feels great. The variety makes things interesting.
I am going to bundle up and enjoy the cold fresh air. Let me admit that the best part of a winter day is the part where you come inside to a roaring fire and a cup of espresso or tea. Yum.
