Day 322: Bundle

No, not the cable and the internet….

It was 12 degrees this morning when I went out to the car. The kids’ schools were closed, but not the university, so off I went, bundled up against the cold.

Today was our seventh day of snowfall since November 1, and the coldest day by far. It’s been a long time since I’ve had to deal with winter–a true winter.

And I’m really enjoying it.

Perhaps the novelty will wear off in a few months, but for now, feeling the cold air against my face, seeing my breath, hearing the snow underneath my feet–all of those sensations of winter feel so new, and so right for this time of year.

And the gratitude I have for a warm, safe home is tangible as well.

It should be another cold morning tomorrow. Winter is definitely here.
