Because I’m still in a Winter Wonderland, on vacation/holiday far away from my home, I have limited time to write new posts (dang!) for at least a few more days.
But, I thought I would share something with you that is still near and dear to my heart, and it rings especially true for me this week (and maybe for some of you as well!).
I had always hated the cold; being super-sensitive, I experienced what I would classify as pain in the biting chill. In more recent years, I’ve come to appreciate the cold, for other reasons. (I’ve also come to bundle up with a couple additional layers!) 😉
These reasons involve the fact that the world becomes a very quiet place when the temperatures drop below easily comfortable levels and the world at large scurries inside. It is during these times that I feel like I have the world to myself and I get to be me, even outside, because no one’s watching. The “blanket” effect is especially noticeable (to me) with snow cover.
Please forgive me; I feel a little “retro” right now. 🙂
Where I am right now, the current temperatures are colder than those of Antarctica and the Arctic shore of Alaska. The windchill drives the perception of those temperatures even lower. Needless to say, few people are out and about, with the exception of the impending New Year’s Eve celebrations.
So, I thought I’d “celebrate” with a little blast-from-the-past of my own and share it with y’all. ❤
I’ll be home in a few days, and once I thaw out and reinstall myself in my regular routine, I’ll play catchup on reading, commenting, replying, and a writing few awesome blog awards!! (Thank you to my nominators!!) ❤
Happy New Year to All!
