“What do you see when you look in the mirror?”
“I? I see myself holding a pair of thick, woollen socks.”
“One can never have enough socks,” said Dumbledore. (from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J K Rowling)
The past couple of weeks have been cold up here in Boston. In the 20s or lower most days, and will windchill factors making it feel like the teens. Or colder. Brrrrrr! I know that this isn’t all that bad as far as winter temperatures go, and you’d all be so proud of me–I have commented on the cold, but I haven’t yet complained about it. That’s a real achievement for this Texas girl. And I’ve adjusted to the cold better than I expected. Today, for example, when it got up into the low 30s, my friends and I were discussing what a lovely day it was to be out and about–and we meant it! But in making that adjustment, I’ve also learned the value of the having warm things to wear, like scarves and wool socks and warm coats. I mean, I always wore those things when I needed to at home, but now I rely on them everyday. Some days, I’m pretty if I looked in the Mirror of Erised, I would see a pair of socks. Or a puffer coat. Or standing in front of a fireplace.
Wishing you a cozy weekend!
