It is the first day of winter.It's hard to think winter when there is sand between your toes. We don't celebrate Christmas, but the outdoor lights and the greetings from people are nice reminders of the holiday. I feel like I am in a weather warp because
the outside temperature is in the high 70's and getting warmer. The white outside my door is sand from the last trip to the beach and not snow. How can it really be winter. That must be for people who live in northern states.Wimps like me, get cold when the
temperature goes below 72. I wear a hat and gloves when I walk Cricket. And if I am cold, then she must be also, so I put a sweater on her. She doesn't complain. I remember what winter is like and I don't like it. I remember shovels, snow blowers and salt
for the stairs. I traded that in for sun block, sunglasses, and flip flops. It was a good trade.
