Christmas music greets us wherever we shop.
Christmas movies play 24 hours a day on Hallmark and Lifetime.
Children are busy composing their letters to Santa.
We should be bundling up. Donning down jackets, mittens, and warm wool scarves.
Mother Nature is laughing. Blowing in warm March like winds. Greeting us with days that are reminiscent of spring.
The trees have lost their leaves finally, but lawns remain green and bulbs are tentatively poking tender shoots up through the ground.
I love warm weather, so I am savoring each warm day that we have.
However, I am left wondering. Is this a reprieve before January comes howling in? Will we be feeling December's cold in March? Or will we be given a gift of a mild winter this year.
Mother Nature knows, but she seldom shares her secrets.
So we are left shaking our heads, wondering, and saying that it is indeed a most unusual time of the year.
