Throughout September I was hoping and wishing for the nice weather to last forever. There were a few cool days but we all shrugged our shoulders and said, "it will pass." Well now we have welcomed October and did it ever come in with a bang, and not a very good one if you as me! It is SO COLD. I don't like cold, or wet, which is why I like to semi-hibrenate when the winter comes.
Today I woke up to rain, rain, rain, and cold, cold, cold. It is apparently 6 degrees outside (WHAT?! not even a double digit?!) and my house is a cool 67 degrees according to me thermostat and I like it a little warmer than that.
Some may say (like my dad) "just go put a sweater on" well you know what people? I'm wearing a sweater, and sweat pants and I'm still kind of chilly! Drinking tea has helped and if all else fails I'll turn on my electric heating pad because my sore muscles could use a blast of heat.
So I guess this is my post welcoming the official October weather, I'd just like to add I can enjoy a nice fall day with a little bit of a cool breeze but dropping from the high-teens, low-20s to 6 is a little heartbreaking.
So: stay warm and start thinking about all the hot drinks you can buy at your local barista bar/cafe.
(I have my eye on the Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks -- thanks to my friend Courtney, who introduced me to this yummy drink! -- even though I hardly ever go there it will be a special treat.)
