Friday is the day we roll out some positive thoughts and give thanks for one of our favourite things. Feel free to join me in this humble little linky party by writing your own post and linking up below. I love seeing your favourites each week.
Winter is only 17 days old and I've already done my fair share of grumbling about the cold. I'm green with envy reading blog posts about people having fun swimming, and picnicking and generally wearing practically no clothes. Last time I saw my own arms was in about April. I'm sorry if I made fun of you when it was snowing at your place and I was talking about fun in the sun and tank tops and shorts. It seemed so funny then but payback is a bitch.
In an effort to get through the next few months of cold, rain, and wind, I decided this week to focus on the things about winter that I actually like. If I'm going to have to endure months of this nonsense I might about well try to enjoy at least some of it. So here are the top 5 Things I Love About Winter.
There's something about winter that encourages comfort food. Casseroles, stews, crumble , hot fruit pies, curries, roasts, and soups. And the smells wafting through the house as you cook these Epicurean delights are amazing.
Let's face it. I'm a coffee addict. But on a cold frosty morning,and mine start very early usually when it's still very dark outside , there's nothing better than a cup of coffee( or three ) to warm you up. Hot chocolate is good too although I mainly drink that so I can legitimately eat 20 marshmallows with every cup.
Rugging up on the lounge when it's stormy outside and listening to the rain belt down while I read a good book. I get to use my quilts and chenille blankets. The danger of falling asleep while thus ensconced is fairly high. In winter people expect you be sluggy. It's all good.
Nothing screams winter like a scarf, hat, jacket and a pair of boots. And I love me some layers. This is my latest winter find. I wonder if I'll be brave enough to wear it in public . I love the idea of hats but I'm not sure they suit me. Plus I worry about dorky hat hair.
Need I say this? Pyjamas. Getting into a warm bed in warm pyjamas on a cold night is heaven! Slopping around all weekend in your pyjamas is bliss. It should be socially acceptable to wear your Pyjamas in public with fluffy slippers especially in winter. And since my current pyjama collection although large, is fairly manky, I've spared you a visual.So that's my winter round up. They're my favourite things this week . What do you love about winter?
