Just a little bit warmer

I walked to my office this afternoon after eating my lunch outside behind my building. The bench wasn't very comfortable but the stone was warm and welcoming. My arms and face had turned a bit pink from the 30 minutes I had spent outside. It wasn't long, but my skin has been missing color for months now.

Wasn't it snowing this time last week?

In the middle of January, in the middle of February the winter season seems so long. But now, I'm wondering "didn't we just celebrate my birthday?" and "What happened to Christmas?" and "Did I listen to any holiday music?"

We're happy tonight.
Walking in a winter wonderland.

While I love the snow falling and twinkling Christmas lights and a crackling fire in the fireplace I also need the change. I appreciate the crisp air of a late October morning because just two months before the temperature is higher than a human's body temperature and the humidity makes me melt into a puddle. So, it is about time for the weather to warm up. 

But not too much.
