Default What we LIKE about winter

I know we will have griping when things get very cold and blizzardy. Sure it's cold and dark and snowy in most places and there are no flowers but let's look at theeh good stuff.

My dogs just came in from outside and smell wonderful! (I'd forgotten that ozone scent.)
The sun is shining and the trees look beautiful in their lace.
Woodstoves and quilts are a comfort.
Baking beans and roasting chicken smell better than in summer.
Soup.

Add yours.

Since I am not a normal coffee drinker- I love when it starts to get cold drinking coffee in the mornings- and hot chocolate in the afternoons!(SBD friendly, of course!)

Get togethers with family and friends
Coming home to the Christmas lights on if DH has got here before me
Lots of good soup
snow- on the rare occasion we get it!
OOh- and my big heavy down alternative comforter we bring out when it gets cold!


ELF! I love that movie!

"Smilings my favorite!"

I love winter and we are getting a big snowstorm here in WI. I love all the seasons but winter is a time of rest so to speak after a busy summer in the garden with all the canning and freezing. The hills in WI are so beautiful, all white and glistening. And the wood stove keeps us toasty warm. When the 10 kids were all home, it was a time of fun as they hooked up the horses and skied behind them or built home made hockey rinks on the cement behind the garage. Cocoa and toast was their favorite breakfast. It is pretty quiet around here now but once in awhile, the 10 grand kids come and then it is very lively again.

Blizzard here too, today and tomorrow!

I'm not working today!
I am supposed to work tomorrow.
Love my hot jasmine tea.
Cookie bake & exchange with my girls and relatives this weekend.
My dogs adore the snow. They went out 6 times in 4 hours last night!
Love decorating the house for the holidays.
Lots of chili and hot soup.
OK I can't think of anything else. (I'm dreading trying to drive in this tomorrow!)

Love being home on snowy days with hot soup and coffee of course.
Always have a dozen projects planned for the loom and knitting and beading and always so disappointed that maybe only three quarters get done. Have to reduce my stash.
take care
Sophie

1>Tobogganing!

2>Red Noses of little kids who have been playing out side!

3> Sparking snow covered trees.

I really don't like winter because of the cold. Not the snow!
