Logolepsy – 5

word 5
It’s wild how time passes so quickly. I mean, we’re already approaching Halloween you guys, the end of October! It feels like just yesterday that I couldn’t wait for summer to go away and for fall to show up. Now I’m sort of impatiently waiting for winter to bat fall out of the park. Call me crazy, but I prefer cold over heat, and the weather yesterday was perfect: overcast, chilly, and windy. In other words, sweater weather! It just calls for sweaters (if that wasn’t already obvious) and hot beverages and books and blankets and coziness that leaves a warm feeling in your chest. At least, that’s just me. Here’s a word that brings all of these thoughts to mind:

1. brumous
(adj.) of grey skies and winter days; filled with heavy clouds or fog; relating to winter or cold, sunless weather

Hope everyone has a great week! 안녕 (annyeong)!
