9 Things I Love About Winter

Mama Kat's writing prompts this week had this little jewel in the list so I thought I would TRY it.

1.  I love hot soups and a big pot of beans in the winter

2.  I love a fire in the fireplace, the smells and toasty warmth it gives off.  There is just NOTHING better than sitting in my chair at the cabin next to the fire with a good book.  

3.  I love, love, love Christmas.  I love decorating my house and the tree and seeing everyone elses decor.  

4.  I love the baking that goes along with Christmas during the winter months.  The smell of fresh baked anything is just wonderful!

5.  I sort of like warm sweaters and the layering to cover up the extra poundage that comes along with the Christmas baking!

6.  I love...

Well that kind of sucks.  Let's try this...

As many know when I write here, I really do hate winter most of the time.  

1.  I hate the cold.  I hate the cold.  I hate the cold.  My bones and joints and fingers and toes and ENTIRE body hate the cold.  Always have.  

2.  I hate what the winter does to the landscape.  The desolation of leaves off of the trees is so depressing for me.  It's sad but deep in my soul I know that spring is just around the corner and the trees need a rest.  

3.  I hate the wet, cold, dreary days and gray skies.

4.  I hate that I can't sit outside and feel the warmth of the sun.  I need the light.

5.  I hate the poundage I do put on because my body basically wants to hibernate and not move much but yes EAT!

6.  I hate the short days when it's dark when I leave for the office and dark when I head off.  (The good side of that is now I have windows in my office to see the dreary days.)

7.  I hate that tax season is just around the corner so the few months of stuck inside is spent getting my taxes together.

8.  I hate making New Year's Resolutions!

9.  I hate failing in completing my New Year's Resolutions!

I was so looking forward to being inspired to find something to like about winter when I read this post. Because I have a bad attitude about winter in general - it just sucks.

And then I cracked up, because you confirmed for me - it really does just suck.

Merry Christmas!

I am such a winter person, and you are off to a great start! How about the beauty of ice on branches, hot chocolate, snow days, sledding, snowmen. Ok now I am just making MY list. Merry Christmas!

I've got a sneaking suspicion you're not much of a winter fan... ;)
