joys of winter?

it is so much easier to cool off than warm up.
now lacking the 35 extra pounds and constant
supply of anti-freeze(alcohol), i used to have,
it can be difficult to shake a chill once it starts.

everything changes with the coming of winter;
the trees are bare,
grass doesn't grow,
no colorful flowers,
and less sunlight

attitudes change, people get grumpy,
the weather becomes a constant
topic of discussion.

even when it rains, people panic
at the possibility of a freeze.
then there's the snow;
nice on the ground...hell on the roads.

january 10 can't come soon enough!

on to arizona and pools, hot tubs
and daily sunshine.

i hate winter.

I bought myself some warm PJ's and socks to keep me warm and comfortable. I figure I could spend the extra money since it's not going towards alcohol. My grandma also made my son and me flannel blankets. They are wonderful to curl up on and watch a good movie or read a good book. I hope you find some joy in the winter. Hugs, Jen
