You're probably wondering what I'm going to write about on this topic. Well, you aren't the only ones. Grin. For the last few days, I have been saying over and over, I hate winter. Of course, the thought spawned this topic.
I don't like cold, so I don't like winter, but I do think the snow and ice in winter is a beautiful wonderland, so that means I like it. Well, I like it if I am not out in it. Looking at winter is fine but having to get outside to shovel the driveway, sidewalks or to drive in the stuff is not fun.
In the winter, I've always hibernated like a bear by not getting out other than when I had to go to work. As soon as I got home from work, I liked to curl up with a blanket, a good book and a cup of hot tea or hot chocolate. See winter sounds better all the time.
When I was a kid I loved sledding in the snow, but that was a long time ago. Smile. I don't like going downhill on a sled anymore or walking back up the hill. I like to watch out the window from inside my nice warm home when kids slide down the hill. They laugh and holler looking like they are having so much fun and it is a joy to see.
I like it when carolers come to the house to sing while standing in the snow. Of course, I stay inside my nice warm house to listen. Often, we would invite the carolers in for some hot beverage to warm them before they went to the next house. There were times when I was even one of the carolers.
At different times of our live we enjoy the opposite of what we used to like. Tell me some of your favorite things about winter and those you dislike as well.
Thank you for visiting today. Have a great week, stay safe and warm.
