so i woke up this morning to a white frosty lawn, and butter that was hard to spread on the toast. (we keep our butter dish on the kitchen table so its easy to use).
i guess this means that winter is really gonna happen. soon. *sob* *sniff*
i am a lover of warmth. i am a loather of the cold. it gets in my bones, and it makes me wanna cry.
even though the thought of facing another long and arduous canadian winter makes me cringe, something warms up inside of me at the thought.
there really is no better time than winter for making a cozy home. candles, cinnamon scents, warm freshly baked bread, little white christmas lights, cozy sweaters, sluffy slippers, kids in snow suits with red rosy noses and cheeks, curling up with hot cocoa and a good book or movie and a big cozy blanket, thick chunky stews and soups, chili and corn bread, long hot bubble baths, woollen mitts, hats and scarves
……mmm……there really is no substitute.
i admit….something is already longing for the cold winter.
but you can believe that by february i’ll be singing a different tune.
however, until then, i will anticipate all that the winter promises. 🙂
(plus jer looks so cute in all his winter gear. joshijah too. this photo was taken last march.)
