Growing up in the New York there was a rite of passage that came with the changing seasons. I loved when winter came and I could wear my winter clothes. Buying a new winter coat was a ritual in my family. Neutral winter shades of camel, gray, and black replaced the casual colors of summer.
Now that winter has come to South Florida I can satisfy my craving for winter clothes. Out come the boots I bought back in September and all the other accessories.
Winter clothes are not the only thing I long for. There are days I can’t consume enough chocolate.
Recently I had the strangest craving. I had just read the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Intrigued by the heroine and her dark background I read all three books back to back. My senses were on overload: murder, political secrets, and mayhem. Craving a release from all the pandemonium, I searched through my TBR pile for something less chaotic.
I found several Avalon romances: light, fast reads that weave charming tales of love. Wrapped in a warm Snuggie, sipping from a cup of frothy hot chocolate I am happy and content. All my cravings have been satisfied for tonight.
Have any unusual cravings this time of the year?
