Hello ~ Jack Frost
Ok, yesterday we said what we will miss about summer......today lets talk about what we like and dislike about winter! Oh come on now...we can find some things we like. I love the first snow. I always make some hot chocolate and sit by a window and watch it. Of course I worry about everyone driving in it ~ thats the Mother in me. I wish I had a picture of the time I turned the car completely around in the snow..I just hung onto the steering wheel and screamed!
I like taking walks in the snow, its always real quiet, as if you are the only one on earth. The snow glistens like it has little diamonds in it. Its very peaceful. I like the way my yard looks when it snows and I dont like people messing up my snow! I like it to be nice and fluffy and untrampled. And no yellow snow!!!
I dont like cleaning my car off in the snow.....grrrrrr. I have a double car garage but its full of my "stuff". There is no room in it for the car! Its not attached to my house so I use it for storage. One of these days Im going to clean it out and park the cars in it . ( I say that every year!)
When it starts snowing for some reason I start cooking...lol...potatoe soup, a big pot of chili or vegetable soup, a turkey breast. I love to have the house filled with good smells and good food during a big snow. My kids love it, they all come home to eat.
My Mom and I can never agree on the temperature of the furnace. She is always cold and I am always hot. I like the temp on 68 degrees. When Im not paying attention she jacks it up to 74! Then I start notice Im sweating. Then I throw her one of those wraps and turn it down.
I like to hear the sounds of the kids out shoveling snow, if we have a speck of snow they dont have school. I dont know where those kids are in the summer when your looking for someone to cut your grass, I guess they would rather work in the cold.
And of course we all look forward to Christmas, all the decorations, the cookies, presents, shopping, special Church services, the Christmas lights....its all fun! And of course me being me, I always buy myself a few presents : )). I love the way our Church is decorated during the holidays. And did you ever notice how everyone is in a good mood during the holidays? Then the next day they go right back to being their grumpy old selves.
I feel like a kid at Christmas time. I get so excited. My best Christmas present was a big dollhouse...it had a car to go with it and it had electric lights! I played with it for hours at a time.
So what are some of the things you like or dislike about winter ? And what was the best Christmas present you ever got?
Lets Talk.. Catch at 4:29 AM
