Baby, It's Cold Outside

Last week I read this post, about winter time. And it got me thinking. I kind of do love winter.

We all complain all the time about snow, and cold, and icy roads. Don't get me wrong, I hate being cold. But, as long as the heat is on when I come inside. I do like winter. I don't like running to the car and shivering halfway to work before the car heats up, but, I do like the snow. I don't like sliding all over the road  on my way to work, but I do like bundling up before I go out to shovel.

Here are some things that I do love about this season

  • Snow Days! I live near the ocean. This means that it is windy. Really windy. So when we get snow, we have wind. And sometimes rain. Which makes is messy outside. I love waking up and finding out that the city is closed down, and I can spend the day on my couch watching daytime TV  working from home.
  • Toques. I'm Canadian. I love them.
  • Snowshoeing. I love hiking. Hiking in the snow is excellent.
  • Hot Chocolate. I love some good hot chocolate. I love making it at home, I love getting it at Tims. I love taking it snowshoeing with me in a thermos.
  • My new Uggs. I actually just got them, and have only worn them about a dozen times. But, I love them already. I love being able to pull them on with no socks and walk to the store. Plus, I feel super cool wearing them.
  • The cozy feeling your house has at nighttime. It is different in the winter. Coming home to a cozy house, wrapping up in a blanket and watching a movie. (With hot chocolate).
  • Sledding. Hurling yourself down a hill, on a small piece of plastic. So. Much. Fun. (Although, I am much more afraid of the hills now than when I was younger. And last winter I went sledding with a group of kids I volunteer with, and ended up with bruises all over me.) 
What about you? What do you love about winter?


  1. I love the clothes. Getting to wrap up warm and cosy. Soft woollen scarves and gloves. Yes, that's definitely my favourite thing.

  2. Hi TL, Thanks for the shout out. Dues to recent drama in my life I have had to change some settings on my blog...can you tell me if you are able to still look at it? If not, email me and I will add you to my list. I hope to re-open it soon. Once someone gets bored of my life.

  5. All good...I decided that drama be damned. My blog, my world. :)
