People Assume

People often assume that winter must be hard on me.  They’re wrong.  I love it.  Thermometer-watching is very entertaining.  It’s cozy by the wood stove.  Cold nights under my thick down comforter are much better for sleep.  And winter makes beautiful, often-changing visions outside my windows.  Besides, everyone spends a lot of time inside in the winter, so the contrast between me and Them is softened just a bit.  There’s nothing winter brings that’s as hard on me as serious summer heat.  


Here’s a lovely list at Green Words Growing of good things about winter.

  1. I like that! You are so right. It does even the playing field just a bit... and when the weather is really bad, well, we are all inside:)

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. While I was driving down the highway through Iowa the other day, I saw a stand of poplar covered with ice. It was so odd, and so beautiful.
    I wanted to stop and take a picture of it, but I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to get traction to get back on the highway from the side of the road.
    I regret not snapping that picture now.
    I would have warmed up by now, even if I had gotten stuck in the snow.
    Next time.

  3. Love your snow drawing, it's been the longest, hottest, humidest summer here - the reminder of cooler weather to come is just lovely!
