Winter

Well, it appears that winter has arrived.
I know there are people out there who LOOOOOOVE this season.
To you winter lovers: WHY? Please tell me why you love winter.
Looking into my bleak, barren and frigid future makes me want to hide under the covers until April when the sun comes out again.
Please, my friends--what do you like about winter?

When you look out the window in the morning and the sky is a Royal Blue and the snow is sparkling like a million diamonds. Then you go outside and the air is so cold that your nosehairs freeze when you inhale.
Then you run back inside where Poppers has a roaring fire going in the woodstove and you stand by it and toast yourself.
You should come over.

Oh and when it snows a BUNCH and there is a snow day and Eli and I both get to stay home--that rocks!

V, I'm with you. I love when you get off the plane and you feel that warm, humid air. Then, the sunshine reaches your skin and you think...why do I live in MN?

I do love when the snow covers the trees. And Christmas vacation. That's about it.

Melissa said...

Yeah, why do you live in MN/WI? I have SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and I find it much easier to cope with the lack of daylight hours if it's still 65 degrees and sunny out here in CA!

However, it's really fun to watch your kid play in the snow :)

Snowmobiling,
a white Christmas,
hoar frost,
the blue sky and sparkly snow that Kristi said,
sweaters for the same reason Carrie said, all of this is just wonderful until Dec.26th and then I'm ready for spring.
