Brrrr! Baby, it’s COLD outside! At least that is the case where I am this morning. We are in a January deep freeze. If you comment, I'm not ignoring you if I don't visit. My computer has a cold, or a headache...or something. Anyway, it keeps crashing. Here goes.
1. What is the thermometer reading at your house this morning?
2. Snow—love it or hate it?
Both. I love beautiful snowfalls, frosty days, snow on the evergreens, snow for Christmas. And I hate shoveling, and being cold, and slipping on ice for months on end. And today I'm just plain ol' cold. The sun is shining now, but clouds and snow are heading our way from Madison.
3. What is winter like where you are?
See above. Having grown up in Southern California, I actually do enjoy having four distinct seasons, but the thing is, winter just goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on.....way too long. I enjoy it when it first arrives, but by March I'm thinking it should be spring. Instead March can be the most snowy, wintry, stormy winter month of all.
4. Do you like winter sports? Any good stories?
No. And no. I'm too klutzy for sports--but snowmobiles are fun.
5. What is your favorite season, and why?
It is hard to say. I love fall, and crisp days and changing colors and fall clothing and all that. I love spring, as any long-time reader of this blog knows all too well, with it's splashes of color as the daffodils and tulips pop open, and I love the anticipation of green leaves and warmer days. And I love summer because it is warm. And I love camping and being outside. I guess I have three favorite seasons. :-)
Bonus: Share a favorite winter pick-me-up. A recipe, an activity, or whatever.
When the thermometer hovers around zero and the snow flies and the wind blows, it is awful if one has to go to work or other necessary places. But I admit, being the coach potato that I basically am, I like being warm, curling up on the couch with a good book, a cup of soup and an afghan. Or maybe warming up the house by baking. Or watching videos. I like being inside as I watch the snow outside.
