When I left the house this morning, I was suddenly aware that it wasn’t that cold. I could almost see the snow melting before my eyes. I was a bit confused. You see, for the first time in a long time, we had a credible amount of snow in December. It felt like it was going to hang around all winter and that we would have a white Christmas.
That was not to be.
I don’t want to award the absence of snow Today’s Perfect Moment. I generally like snow and I like winter. I may not do any skiing this year, but I do want to acknowledge the season’s importance.
On the other hand, I really enjoyed the warmer temperatures of today. It was nice not to shiver on every street corner waiting for lights to change. It was nice not to have to have to zip my jacket up fully. It was nice not to have to mess up my hair under my toque–okay, I made that last one up. With the current haircut, the toque couldn’t possibly do any harm.
So, Today’s Perfect Moment goes to warmth rather than a lack of cold. It might only be semantics, but it is definitely worth celebrating.
