below freezing cold
Things I WILL MISS about winter:
slow falling snow
graceful deer near my windows
all variety of birds together at the feeder
warm, bulky sweaters
layers of soft blankets
wooly, fuzzy footies
hot, homemade soups
the warm coziness of home
mighty, good reason to stay in bed longer in the morning
I can't believe I have more things to miss than not!!! Sometimes I wonder how we tolerate the winter, but by tolerating winter, we experience summer, spring, and fall, and I wouldn't miss any of them for all the warmth of summer!
So, Mr. Winter, you may not be my favorite, but I guess loving 3 out of 4 seasons is a pretty good life, not forgetting all the things I would miss if I didn't have you around sometimes!!
