16 Things I Love About Winter

Monday, May 10, 2010
I still have flowers in my garden. I still have to water the trees. But winter is definitely coming.
There is something to love about all the seasons. I don't know if I can pick a favourite, because as one is waning, I am anticipating the next.

What I love about winter;

1. Open fires - real fires on a cold night. I love the sound, the smokey smell, the warmth and the utter cosyness of a real fire.

2. My red Kathmandu slippers.

3. Children who go to sleep early.

4. Long quiet evenings.

5. Sparkly, icy,frosty mornings outside. Warm house inside.

6. Rain. Hail. Snow! Stormy weather in general gives me a thrill. I love it!

7. Frozen puddles

8. Hot, comforting puddings

9. Hot chocolate

10. Bonfires.

11. Crisp, sunny days.

12. Queenstown!

13. My washing gets done quicker, because I can't hang it out, and I have to use the dryer.

14. Hotwater bottle

15. Getting to wear my good boots and dress coats and pretty scarves.

16. Planning for and imagining the garden in Spring.

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:  it is the time for home.  ~Edith Sitwell

I'm a winter girl too. I dream of many of the things you talk of because we don't have an open fire or snow or ice... but, still, I love the coziness of winter!

I might like winter in a few years when we move to warmer climes in NZ. Being under the mountain, the weather is windy and rainy and colder than I prefer, but at least it only frosts a few times a year, so 'frozen puddles' are not frequent.

Oh I'm SO with you! Bring on the bulky jumpers, the wind and rain, the wood fire and the chocolate!!!
