There are several things I love about winter. One thing we do is light a fire and dim the lights. My wife or I will read outloud and we all sit around together and imagine. We can go anywhere. We are half way through White Fang right now, that's a tough ole dog.
And of coarse, SNOWBOARDING!
Waking up and watching the sun come up over the fresh snow covered trees and mountains is like heaven.
Snowshoes in the back country and cross country skiing.
Friends have the time to come over for dinner and talk about last summer.
The look on the kids face Christmas morning and the love we share, though we don't do a lot of presents, it is a special time.
People on the street smile and say high more, the tourists are gone.
I plan to have a very special and memorable winter.
I love hearing about your winter favorites, Weaver! The picture I posted above was taken out my front door last February..pristine beauty!!! I've only been to the Shasta area one time in my life...and I was quite little....I'm sure it would be Divine~
Winter.. I love Christmas, and love knowing Spring is on the way.
Sorry that's all I have about winter :)
LMAO!! I hate the Winters..Look at my Pics and you will know why..No it is OK..I do like the warmth of a fire, The coziness it brings, The fact that more snow fills up the Lakes & Rivers and such..OH YES!!! I just Love my Moose that show up..lol
Not having to shave my legs, cause I will be wearing long pants for a few months, is the BEST!! Albeit a little itchy!!
You ladies need to move to the mountains out here, we like a hairy mountain mama! Just like a fuzzy teddy bear to cuddle with on winter nights.
I still shave my legs everyday during the winter, so I don't even have that lol
Hairy mountain mama? LOL!
You shave your legs EVERY DAY in the WINTER, Barb????
Having a hard time wrappin my brain around that one.....LOL
And Weaver's right...the longer the hair....the softer it is......ROFL
Yep, everyday! Ooh I couldn't stand to let it be all prickly until the soft stage.
Admission: I used to carry a razor and cream, and shave in the bathroom at work if I was pulling a double, 16 hours! It's not vanity, I was in scrubs. I just can't stand it. I'm OCD about it lol. #NoHairyLegs :)
I use to love winter but now it makes me want to use...today is cold was thinking how nice it would be with a lortab and coffee...chillin outside w doggies...or how I will miss my family again for the holidays but a lot of my old friends always had great holidays stayin up late wraping presents drinking and meds, The cold makes me miss being numb and warm...NOW I love the summer the warm and the water and sober...
I am TRYING to get into it TRUST ME I AM...
Today i am 51% and TODAY i will be sober...
I am THANKFUL for a LOT but still...
Ah yes....I love not having to shave my legs in the winter too! Good times :)
Winter and the holidays can be hard for me. The cold weather always seems to make my back hurt more but the major pain I feel is not being allowed to see my kids on Christmas. Its always a week or so before or after that I get to see them. I miss the whole Christmas experience with them. This year, I will try to stay busy with my church. If they have something they need done...I will volunteer. This is a special time of year for me as I'm a "believer". I honor and celebrate His birth.
I cant so much complain about the weather....Hollywood bay-bay!
OMG. It's fricken snowing in NYC today! WTF! Bring on the garbage truck plows and the black slush! It's gonna be a LONG winter!
oh my, my first time over on this side and its nice to have a laugh!!! "hairy mountain mama" now that is funny as crap, i will admit, my legs are hairy and my toes are not polished. I just love the smell of a FIRE!, love sitting beside the fire place curled up in a blanket watching some movies. OH how can i fail to mention all the "comfort" foods, chili, stews, soups, etc, and all the tasty baked goods......yummy. For some reason though in the winter my dryer seems to never work properly and it "SHRINKS" all my jeans....HMMMM anyone else have this problem with there dryer?
Yep, Dana girl.....my dryer malfunctions in the wintertime, too....LOL That's when I switch from jeans to sweats...(see my status)....
Funny thing about dryers.....they have this weird word on them that says "normal".....hahaha!
Yes..Just do not get stuck on the Spin cycle of the washing machine. Then we can move onto the dryer..Ha!!!
It was snowing last week but now it is still snowing pine needles..Been having the wood stove going for a week now..lol
Look out here comes the Winter Snow. You can blink a eye and summer is over here. It goes form Winter to Summer and back. I am moving to Mexico. lmao..
So I can climb in my dryer and have my wife hit 'normal'? Why didn't you tell me about that sooner? I have all winter, so if doesn't work at first, I can just keep trying.
Weaver you are TOO FUNNY!!!!! You're right, you have all winter so you can keep trying....LOL
Vic, leave it to you to use the word "spin"....ROFL That's a cyle you have broken for sure...proud of you babe!!
