Cool Morning

I know people aren’t going to agree, or even like what I am going to write for Today’s Perfect Moment. It isn’t going to be popular.  I expect a flood of negatives and only a handful of readers who agree.  However, it is Today’s Perfect Moment and there is nothing I can do about it.

As I awoke this morning, I could tell something was different. I didn’t even know what it was until I got out of the shower and was putting on my clothes.  I didn’t feel hot and sweaty.

Yes, that’s right. I am celebrating cooler temperatures.  I know, everyone wants to hold on to summer, but I sleep better when it is colder.  I am not wishing summer away, but I just appreciated the fact that the heat wasn’t all over me this morning.

The truth is that I much prefer the cold and enjoy Autumn and Winter more than summer. Summer is great for cycling, but some of classrooms I teach in get so warm that I almost fall asleep in front of the students.  Also, the left side of the bus tends to roast me so badly that I get off the bus sweating.

This evening, the temperature is also down. It isn’t freezing or anything like that.  It just isn’t as warm as it has been up until now.  I enjoyed this but my girlfriend found the bus ride less than enjoyable.

I know I am going to sleep well tonight.

    I’m with you on the seasons. I do like all of them but fall and winter are my favorites also. It used to be because that was soccer season. Now however, I do get to watch soccer year round and consequently, the appeal of fall and winter has waned just a smidgen.

    Windows open, ac off. If fall could last from Aug to the end of Nov I’d be happy. 🙂

  3. Autumn’s my favourite season. I’m looking forward to cooler temps soon as it’s hardly dropped below 30° here all summer. Not grumbling, I like the heat, just the night is hard to cope with when it’s hot for this long.

    It’s been 95 (Fahrenheit) this week in California, so I wouldn’t mind some cooler temperatures either. Although last week the high was only 60 F and really cold in the mornings. My biggest gripe about weather is when it goes from scalding hot one day to freezing cold the next, then back again. That makes me sick!

    I sleep better when it’s cold, too, but I love to be outside when it’s hot! I am ready for the temps to go down though, I’ve had enough for this year. 😛
