I know it is crazy, but I really do like winter. (Kelli at The Hays Crew blog feels the exact opposite, and I do sympathize with her right now.) Well, I guess I should say that I like winter as long as when the calendar says it is spring--the weather cooperates!
Probably, in another life, I was a bear. (Yes, that might fit me in more ways than one.) I like to hibernate in winter. The early darkness suits me. I get home to my warm house and don't want to go out again.
*wood stoves (in our case- a facsimile)
*hot soups and thick stews
*cute knit hats and scarves
*hot cider and hot chocolate
*warm fleece pajamas
*time for a good book
*long underwear--especially long underwear tops
*and cute snowmen
It helps that we live on the same power grid as the Senior Citizen housing, meaning our electricity is never off for long. (Hope I didn't just jinx that.)
It would really help if the Mr. would buy me a remote start for my car. I would love to get into a warm car and not have to scrape windows after school.
Did I mention that I love snow days? I do. And I'm having one today. (Or at least a bitter-cold-minus-zero-wind-chill day.) And I'm not complaining.
