Don't Like the Weather in Texas?

Wait 5 minutes, and it'll change.

Almost halfway through November, and today's high here, near Dallas, Texas is 76. Oh, don't get me wrong, that's nice, for here, but several weeks ago we were in the 40s. Seriously. I just wish it would make a steady decline. I mean, I don't expect it to be snowing (like in Idaho, where my niece is right now). But a slight decline in temperature wouldn't hurt, would it? I mean, 50 would be nice? Wouldn't it?

I would be nice if fall felt like fall and winter felt like winter. Of course, last Christmas Eve we had quite a bit of snow here, which is rare, but I remember Christmases past that we've had temperatures that were just too warm for Christmas.

But then, while I don't mind the cold, one of the biggest reasons I don't like it, is artificial warmth. For some reason, if it's too warm due to a heater kicking on, it feels stuffy and suffocating to me. I'd rather be a tad too cold and add some comfy socks or an extra soft blanket. My favorite kinds of socks are the ones that have the little nonskid bumps on the bottom. (That way I can keep them on but not fall on slippery floors.) I used to have some really cute Powerpuff Girls ones, but they got holes in 'em. *sniffs* Sad.

The recent ones I've been able to find are ... flimsy. They're really soft and that's how they reel you in to buy them, but after a wash or two, they start to fall apart. I just want some comfy socks that will keep my feet warm and won't make me fall and last more than a season. Is that too much to ask? Apparently so. :(

Funny how they say that about the weather in Indiana, too! I don't like the heater in the winter, either, and usually we don't have it on much, but we have to have it on for Brandon now. I like those kind of socks as well. It's definitely hard to find thick good ones.
