Thawing the brain

I don’t know about you, but my brain just Will. Not. Work. when it’s cold. Not for anything. So today, I am grateful for central heat. (Just as I will undoubtedly be grateful for central air-conditioning come July and August.) It got down to single digits here last night. I know there are people who had it much worse — but I’m glad it wasn’t this cold when we lost our power at the end of October, and I am really grateful for being able to go to bed and wake up to a warm house. I really am spoiled by living in the time and place where I do, where that’s not a major issue.

How about you? What are you grateful for this Monday morning?

  1. The fact that I could wear my super-duper snow boots and jacket when I went out today, and not feel like an overstuffed, overdressed dork! My brain goes into overdrive in this weather.


    • Heh. I’d just as soon be on the inside looking out at the snow, though I do remember being young enough to be excited about it. Haven’t really had any since the big storm at the end of October, though — a few flurries here and there, but nothing that’s stuck.

      Hooray for warm clothes, for snow boots and a jacket!
