Sixty degrees. Six months ago, it had me snuggled up on the couch in my pajamas already. Had me wearing long sleeves to bed and sliding into my wooly slippers. Today, it has me changing into a tank top as soon as I clock out and trying on my new capris once I get home. Sixty degrees. Six months ago, it had my seat heater cranked up to high and my car windows tightly sealed against the season. Today, it opens my sun roof and invites my fingers out to dance on the air. Sixty degrees. Six months ago, it had me closing up windows and changing furnace filters. Today, it has me pulling out deck chair cushions and leaning back with my fingers in the dry grass. Sixty degrees. Six months ago, it had me excited for the coming cold. Today, it has me looking forward to the summer sun. Sixty degrees.
I’m participating in the Slice of Life Challenge over at Two Writing Teachers. Thanks to them and their entire team for hosting this amazing opportunity.
