Winter is my favorite season. I'm not THAT odd - it's my daughter's favorite as well. But sometimes, when you see temps in the teens, it's hard to find good things about the winter.
So here are some Good things:
It's soup time. Soup is always good, for the soul and otherwise. Plus, once you have that pot going, you just have to add bread and salad and it's a meal.
Guilt-free reading - Of course you can't go on that five-mile run! It's cold outside! Might as well read a book instead. Or write one.
Lengthy hot drinks - Now that latte tastes really good, especially served in a mug that is really a bowl with one handle. Or any drink with "mulled" in the title.
Making breath clouds.
Germs get killed off - Or so I hear. Die, germs, die!
And also some Bad things:
My husband's feet in the middle of the night. Two words: ICE and BLOCKS (To be fair, the same can be said of my knees.)
Appetite - I could seriously think about ordering, and eating, an ox.
Skiing - I'm so into skiing, but not enough to go out when you have to drink a coffee just to thaw out after each run. No Thank You.
No snow - Cold is fine. Cold without snow is pointless - a bit rude, really.
Can't open windows - V. bad, especially after "Chili Night."
Ah well - must take the bad with the good, eh? Off to mull some more drinks and stir the chili.
