Winter: Enjoying It, Kind Of

Winter is probably my least favorite season of the year. I enjoy it more when I can stay home and don’t have to navigate the slippery roads. I don’t even mind shoveling that much when I can take my time and enjoy that special peaceful quiet that is part of a gentle snowfall or after a big snowstorm.

I am really trying to stay positive despite all the snow and ice we had in December.




And I’m still looking for the beauty despite the frigid cold we’ve had and lots more snow we’ve gotten this month.

I wrote a poem about winter that I was going to post but it in rereading it just now, it’s very dark. Definitely not a happy poem.

A friend of mine wrote a great poem about winter that pretty accurately describes how I feel about it at this point. I just reread it on his blog and it still makes me laugh, so please visit here  to read it.

I also really enjoyed these photos from one of my favorite blogs. He managed to capture winter beauty as he always does. Please check out his blog too for a lift.

In the meantime, I am enjoying staying cozy inside. I’ve read a few really good books. I’m drinking a lot of green tea which is supposed to be healthy for you. And I am finally getting back to my writing which I have let sit idle for too long but sometimes I just have to do that. Don’t you?

What do you do to make winter more enjoyable?

  1. I think you know that I now love winter more than any other season because it is so beautiful – and I can no longer stand the heat! I just bundle up and take long walks to enjoy the scenery. Stay warm!
