Cold Weather

I don’t like to be cold. There are some people who just adore wrapping up in 15 layers of clothing, 3 hats, a scarf, hand warmers, mittens, and boots; all in order to go running outside and sliding around in something that can turn your toes blue and lop off bits of your nose. I don’t get that. Perhaps my aversion to cold is the reason behind never making a good snowman, although if the wind didn’t blow so much here in NW Oklahoma, I could deal quite well with the snow (at least for a few minutes).

However, I abhor the biting cold. I sincerely believe that when the world was created, God meant for us to live in a tropical climate of day time temperatures from 72-84 degrees and evening lows nowhere below about 55 degrees. When the fruit was eaten, it didn’t just get Adam and Eve kicked out of the garden and given painful childbirth..it started real winters. Did I mention that I don’t like the cold?

Don’t get me wrong, I love the fall. Fall is my favorite time of year, with the changing leaf colors, the warm days with nights cool enough to bonfire, and the perfect temperatures for curling up with a cup of hot tea and a light blanket. I’m sure that if I moved to somewhere tropical that I would probably miss the snow on some level…right? Maybe I should try that idea out and see how long it takes to miss the cold…They take imagination as currency now don’t they? It seems like a good plan anyway.

Whether you are one of those people who enjoy freezing temperatures, or someone like me who tolerates the winter as best you can, I hope that you all stay cozy and safe this winter season…unless you live where it is warm. If you live where it is warm, and there are beaches (for my muse of course) perhaps you would like to send some of that warmth my way?? J Wherever you are, and whatever season is your favorite, I wish you a Blessed day.

Who are you Reading?

Who are you Reading?

This is Charlie. Charlie is an adolescent Camel. Normally, I would be taking the time to ask about your reading plans for this weekend but you know what, winter is coming soon and curling up on the couch with a good book and a blanket will seem like a little slice of heaven then. So for now, this weekend at least, go out and see something that you’ve been dying to see!
Charlie lives at Arbuckle Wilderness in Davis, Ok and he is supremely sweet! If you can’t make it down here, check around. I bet there are a few places that you never knew existed, just a short drive away from your front door. Go pet a camel and feed a giraffe for goodness sakes, you are NEVER too old to be excited about that!
Have a Blessed Weekend and GO OUTSIDE!
