i’m really not a complainer….really i’m not ….but,
January is a tough month for me.
after all the wonderfulness of the holidays is past
and i realize that winter is here to stay,
and its cold….and freezing out,
and I am freezing…..i am not happy.
most days you find me sitting next to the fire, with my hat on, wrapped in a blanket.
the number one “must have” on my new car was heated seats.
i go to bed early so that i can be warm under my down comforter.
i’ll bake more to keep the oven on…which keeps the kitchen warmer,
and i’ll eat…yummy comforting warm foods.
it snowed again over the weekend………this i do look forward to. If its going to be winter i want LOTS of snow.
because it gets me out of the house
shoveling, sledding, skiing, snowshoeing
i love a good snow storm.
before we had kids, hubby and i would bundle up and go walking at night during a storm….on snow covered roads, and the whole world seemed silent and calm.
there is nothing like the look of excitement from a child when they see the snow that has fallen over night……they won’t even bother to get out of their jammies….on goes the snowsuits, boots, mittens and hats….they will play for hours!
and come in all rosy cheeked (or screaming because someone threw a snowball)
looking for some hot coco
i love the kind of snow that sticks to everything outside.
it really is a love/hate kind of relationship…winter and i
and once i embrace it…i will be ok.
AND booking our spring vacation to South Carolina always cheers me up!
and talking about retirement (like a gazillion years from now) when we move to South Carolina REALLY cheers me up!
until then….i’m freezing.
