The joys of a new winter season observed.
I enjoy the change of seasons and do my best to celebrate appropriately. As the weather has changed over the past few days my instincts have led me to:
- Stop at Starbucks for a Venti Hot Chocolate (yes with whipped cream).
- Add split pea and bean with bacon soup to my shopping basket.
- Remove the window screens and wash the windows.
- Transfer my stack of sweat pants from the hall closet to my bedroom closet.
- Unfold and put the electric blanket on my bed.
- Replace the filter in the whole-house humidifier.
- Turn on the furnace and confirm its proper operation.
- Find my slipper-socks to keep my feet covered and warm.
The amazing part is that I do all this with no complaint and little to no planning. It just gets done!
