We survived that late-fall snow! It quickly reminded me why winter is not my favorite season.
2014 was definitely the year that winter returned to Illinois. So, I am taking the attitude that since it is still 2014 …. this early storm was carry-over from the Polar Vortex or whatever it was called and not an indicator of what is ahead.
It tends to take me awhile to “accept” winter. I am not sure I will ever welcome winter.
In winter, I struggle with my attitude. Winter touches so many months, though, I have to get a grip. Soon. What will my course of action be?
Nap? Curl up with a blanket and good book?
Maybe, but probably should not get in the habit of that…
I will, however, of course, just make the coffee, even though I feel a little villainessy.
I will work on this ‘tude, knowing full well that the ground, trees, plants need their rest. I will look at it from nature’s point of view. This is the way it is in central Illinois. And at least I am not in Buffalo, New York.
This. Is. Winter. Hear me ROAR!
