My First Frost

24 Jan

This is a year of firsts for me. Getting back to school, adapting to a new part of the country and truly feeling like an adult. So, a whole lotta different going on. As mentioned before, I like change. I thrive on it. But no matter who you are, it can be daunting and unsettling. That was my thought when I noticed the weather changes here in Indiana. Actually, on seeing my first snow fall, my first thought was “what have I done? I don’t belong here.” But I do. It’s just different and takes some getting used to.

I have spent more than half my life in a sub tropical climate. First, the Bahamas and then Florida. No snow. Hell, if it got below 70 degrees people wore parkas. So this was my view this past week:

I was excited and then went, “what now?”

Thankfully, not a lot of snow. Mother nature needs to ease this FL girl into winter. But I have learned a few tricks. These are great for warding off the cold wind:

And on those long winter days when I feel like this:

Sometimes you just have to remember it doesn’t last forever and have a big cup  bowl of tea.

Stay Warm and Happy Thursday!

Under the Weather

3 Nov

 

Ugh, It’s been ages since I’ve had a cold, ( Lucky, right?) But this one caught me off guard. I had just come back from a fun filled weekend, and this little bugger snuck up when I wasn’t paying attention. And just when I’m heading off to a job interview! So far my plan has been tea. And lots of it.

Anyone have some tricks that work for them?
