Winter Love


While almost everyone else is wishing away this season, 
longing for spring, I'm hoping for a little more winter!
I haven't had my fill of ice and snowflakes! 
Sweaters and woolly socks...
Boots and mittens... 
Hot baths and extra hand lotion...
Comfort food and hot chocolate...
Sepia landscapes and suet filled feeders...
Dark cozy evenings and extra quilts...
And I could go on and on!

Anyone else with me?

  1. Sounds romantic but the realization of being very cold and damp doesn't appeal to me.
    I like the feeling of cozy but my gas and electric bill say nope.
    Sorry for the downer...
    I do love your setting with the solitary earring picture and the white bird, that definitely is a unique masterpiece.

    1. You don't have to be cold and damp....dress appropriately and stay inside. haha. Besides, you live in Cali...what do you know about a proper winter? lol. :)

  2. Well, I'm not ready for winter to be over quite yet......but in about 4 weeks I will be. When the end of January comes I start counting weeks.

    1. You and I live where there are four proper seasons. :) It seems crazy to wish winter away..it's just as beautiful...maybe more so than, say, summer! haha. I start to get spring fever in early April..but there's still a chance of snow then!

  3. Good luck to you... but try not to send any more my way.

  4. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

    www.BoycottBitches.com

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    2. This guy invades the comments sections of blog after blog. He seems to think his own experiences are the same as everyone else's.

    3. I'd delete your rant, but the replies are just too priceless! So, I'll just say that you don't know me. I'm not fat, I'm a great cook, I can clean and I have four kids. I'm intelligent, responsible and not disgusting at all. I'm a business owner, independent and have probably worked in more dangerous situations than you ever will. So get the hell off my blog!

    4. This poor excuse for a man has posted the same thing on numerous ladies blogs, If you report him to Blogger.com maybe they can do something. He's even given you a link to his blog page!

      Delete
    5. Yes, I've seen his posts for years and years. Obviously, he hasn't found his lovely international woman or he'd be living the good life with her and not still posting this.

    6. ...and during the Super Bowl to boot! :)

    7. I've seen this comment quite a few times before.
      If you are still reading you poor mistaken man let me tell you that this lady is non of the things you accuse her. I can say there is no lady on Earth who is the complete opposite of what you say. We all love her . .

    8. Aw, Ed. Watch out...your chivalry is showing! :)

    9. And yes, Silver, I agree....the generalizations are a little silly.

  5. All I can say is. . . ! ! !

    Perhaps you should move to the Mother Country, where we get 11 months of winter a year, then you can wear woolies and your pink wellies most of the time. Ha!

    1. You don't get a proper winter either. It's too mild and rainy!

    2. I hate rain about as much as you hate snow! :)

    3. I hate rain and snow . . . you'd never think I was made out of water . . :)

  6. Can't agree with you on this occasion. Perhaps you should have been an Eskimo . . . lol
    I can't wait for warmth and sunlight oozing oodles of lovely vitamin D. . . . makes me come alive again . . . :)

    1. Just pop a Vitamin D pill each day and you'll be fine. haha.
      And like I told Keith...you have no idea what a proper winter is. :)

    2. Proper winter? . . . I think I shall just take your word for it . . . . (It is a lot warmer . . lol) . . :)

    3. Yes! I remember one time we were chatting and you said it was freezing there. I looked up the weather in Bristol and it was 50 degrees. :)

    1. Exactly. Only one really proper snow and it didn't last long enough!
      I bet we get more, though...it's only February!

  8. We have had little snow and cold weather. I miss it! We have had one snow day and I need at least three more!

    1. So true...we haven't had nearly enough snow days! And for us to have a snow day, it has to be really, really bad. We had a wind chill day and that's it!

  9. You make winter sound much more appealing! But I'm still ready for Spring. :)

    1. haha....everyone has forgotten that winter is charming, beautiful and all around wonderful!
      I hate to see everyone just long for it to go away. I'd take winter over summer any day! haha.
      I'm in the minority, I know! :)

  10. No I'm not with you but I do appreciate your positive, embracing attitude.

    We live in Texas where - thank goodness- we don't get much winter. :)

    1. You certainly don't! Maybe if you had a real snowy winter, you'd think differently? No? haha.

  15. YES!

    I try to never wish away, the season I find myself in.

    It's too much like wishing time/life, away.

  16. Not really a fan of winter - too dark and we don't get much snow here anyway. But you make it sound lovely so I'll take your version.
