Wednesday's Word - Cold!!!

Brrrrrrrrrrrrr, it's cold outside!!  The past week, the temperature here has dropped drastically.  Ever since the snow came through last Friday, it seems to be dipping daily.  It probably wouldn't be so bad if the wind had not come with it, but so it is.  As you know from a post earlier this year, Summer is definitely not my favorite season. I'd rather be cold any given day, then hot and uncomfortable.  The way I see it - I can put on more clothes, but there's only so much I can take off, especially outside the house, when it's hot.  So the fitting word for the day is COLD!  Nope, no complaints here, I'm happy to see winter after 104 degrees this summer.  The following is what the word COLD means to me:

COLD 
My excuse to go shopping for the latest and greatest winter hats
Time to stock up on popcorn, hot cocoa, soup and warm tights
weekly monitoring of weather.com looking for snow alerts
Another excuse to to shopping..this time for new boots
No more chirping birds outside my window at night
Cold nose, cold ears, cold fingers and cold toes
Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday is coming
Sanitize everything moving and not moving
Stay away from me if you are sick...really
Time to switch to winter oil in the car
Shoveling snow and raking leaves
Time to weather proof the house
Sweaters, gloves and scarfs
Increase in Electricity bill
Cold morning floors
Extra blankets
Weight gain
Short days
Flu

Unveiling and chilling,

I'm in total agreement with you-As a girl who suffers from hot flashes, even though I'm not a big fan of Winter, I'm always thankful that I can just go outside in a tank and boxers and just be until they go away. LOL

My philosophy is pretty much the same as yours-You can always bundle up if you're cold but there is just so much you can take off when you're hot o.O

As I type I'm looking out the window at more falling snow-I should make a list like you and focus on the positives of this season!
