Many people complain, and even try to leave, but not me. Yes, it is cold, but I am warm in my climate-appropriate clothing. The snow is so soft and clean and beautiful. It falls on the landscape like a soft down blanket. The children love to play in it, they roll in it, they eat it, they dig in it. I would rather wield a snow shovel than go to the gym any day. Winter is part of Mother Nature’s cycle of life, without winter, could we have spring?
When I get cold and need to go inside, there is nothing better than snuggling under a warm blanket wearing my hand knit wool clothing, and picking up a knitting project or a good book. Having a warm child on you is nice too. It is a good time of year to care for the areas inside one’s home that tend to get neglected when we are all outside enjoying the summer.
