Good morning. I thought I’d share ten things for which I am thankful in winter. What? you say. This girl hates, despises, abhors winter. Yes, it is true. Winter is my least favorite season. I could go on and on about the cold and the wind and the dark, but instead, in the spirit of the TToT blog hop which is hosted each week by Josie2Shoes, I decided to share some positives, some simple items of winter gratitude.
The picture speaks for itself. The beauty of newly fallen snow gives the world a peaceful, quiet look which calms the soul.
Then there are warm things in winter. Like seat heaters and a heated steering wheel which makes getting into a freezing cold car much more appealing, if you have to leave the house at all. (Which is nice and warm, thank you new furnace).
Then there’s a long warm coat with a fuzzy hood that keeps the wind from chilling my bones. I like that quite a bit and I’m very thankful I got it on a great bargain (75% off) a few years ago.
Oh, yeah, comfort food. Warm soup and bread are my favorite get cozy foods.
That said, I’m thankful for 5 % spandex and leggings which accommodate those few extra “bulk up for winter” pounds.
I’m thankful for Tim in every season. NB. – He’s an expert at snow removal.
The fireplace he built when we constructed our house many years ago is a winter delight. Spending cold nights in front of a warm fire is just lovely. We move the chairs in front, warm our toes and get lost in the primeval pleasure of glowing embers.
Now I’m tapping my fingers and stretching my mind a little. Winter, what’s good about it?
I’m binge watching Call the Midwife on Netflix.
And, um,. . . .um, Wait – there’s some rule for that; 3.1 or something, right Clark?
And of course, spring, and then summer, will be here and the joy of that warmth and lightness will abound.
There is always something for which to be thankful.
