Day 292.

Monday, October 19, 2009.

It's going to be a cold, wet week...not so much October-weather. That stinks for me, because I love love love fall. I love 50s and 60s more than any kind of weather. I love jeans and sweaters, not winter coats! I love fall colors, not rain clouds. I love pajamas, but don't want to throw on the afghan quite yet. I love pumpkin everything, and am not prepared for christmas cookies yet. But even though it's cold and yucky, I still have something to be grateful for.

I am grateful for heat.

I often complain about our heating system - we have radiator heat and we control the heat for our whole condo building. That may seem like a wonderful privilege, but it ends up being a curse, because our unit is the hottest in the building (for an unknown reason). So, we have to crank up the temperature so everyone else is warm! The kids run around the house naked all winter cause it's pretty hot for clothes. So, it could be a downside, but when I come into our home from being outside on a cold, windy, rainy day, that moist radiating heat surrounds me and I am so very grateful.
