It’s Winter! Well not so fast, we are not quite there yet. It’s getting to be a bit too cold for my liking but nothing that a few layers of early winter clothing won’t fix.
Every year, when the temperature starts to fall, (no pun) that’s when I look back on summer and the things I had planned on doing that I didn’t. I should have bike more. Heck, I should have bike period! At least once. I should have taken the boys to the park more often. I should have enjoyed the outdoors more. instead of staying in. Light a fire in the backyard. Camp in the backyard with the boys…So many summer outdoor activities not done. Now I have to wait for at least ten months.
In a short while, I will be struggling to buckle the boys in their seats as their bulky jackets usually pose a problem. I will be shoveling the driveway. I will be taking way too long to get the boys dressed and undressed. I will be brushing snow off the car while it warms up and doing house projects. I will be white-knuckle driving.
In a few months, summer and all its should-haves would be forgotten. I would be learning to skate, making snowmen with the boys, going tobogganing, Christmas shopping, oh and doing house projects.
Good-bye Summer, bring it on, Winter!
