I was planning a small get together for a few of my friends.
Just a half dozen people having some food together outside. We decided to do this outside because of the coronavirus. Outdoor air is safer. We all want to stay healthy after all. The weather was predicted to be about 60 degrees with no rain so it should be perfect with a fire. However, that weather prediction changed on the morning of the party. It now said it was going to be 40 degrees with possible snow flurries. That was just great. Well it was too late to change the get together. We all decided to go through with it. We thought the fire might keep us pretty comfortable. That did not turn out to be the case. We were freezing cold outside even with a fire. Thankfully one of my guests brought some outdoor heaters. He didn’t bring any food but I don’t care about that. I am just happy that he brought the outdoor heaters. They made the outdoor space comfortable enough. However, after food and s’mores, everyone headed back home. The party was shorter than I had planned but I didn’t complain. I was just happy to get back inside my house where I had left the furnace on. It was so warm and comfortable in the house. I didn’t realize how cold I had been until I started getting warm again. This year has been so weird but I am glad I can still see my friends. So I don’t regret being cold. I am just happy for a little warmth this time of year.
