I have a love/hate relationship with this particular season (not winter in general, but this winter in the here and now).
-It’s not cold…during the day. I feel cold in the house and walk outside and all the sudden I’m sweating. I don’t like that.
-We are in the middle of a drought. The river is low. Not acceptable. It literally makes me thirsty just thinking about it.
-We had one week of hard freeze, which I wouldn’t mind had it not been in the upper 60s since then. I could still have small amounts of tomatoes and peppers right now if it weren’t for the freeze.
-It’s warm outside but the days are not long enough for my compost, so I have to buy accelerant.
-I can ride my bike more without feeling like my hands are going to fall off (because I don’t like wearing gloves).
-I can go to the river and forage for things/improve my photography.
-I’ve had a successful bout of crocheting.
All in all, it’s not so bad and Winter still has a couple more months to warm to me (hopefully not literally).
