My new life, full of color

Other, Personal 4 Comments

It’s cold.  I never knew Cold before. Now, I know Cold.  I don’t know it as well as others, but I know it better.

I have always loved colors and textures but now since I know Cold, I have a great problem on my hands-an expensive problem.  I need to get dressed up to greet Cold.  I need to be bundled in several layers to be comfortable around Cold.  I get to invest in things that never had much meaning to me… words like wool, and down and such.  Those words have changed my life and have introduced me to warmth when I am around Cold.  I’m grateful for the things I learn each day, each new chapter in my life.  This, my new growing friendship with Cold, I am grateful for and I am grateful for warmth-that I can find it when I need it.

    Oooo..I hopped on over to your blog from my friend Michelle Sidles…and I see she has already left you a comment. Isn’t she awesome!!!! I’m a warm weather person too..but I figure if its going to be cold then let it snow. I am hoping that when I head down to your home state for a jaunt in November it will be warmer than it is here.

    Hi Donna, are you THE DONNA that Michelle raves about? Thanks for stopping over! You will be going to AZ in November? For a run? I would rather be in AZ from October-May seeing as I am currently snowed in… : (
