…Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…. No, these are not a few of my favorite things.
When it comes to winter in the north country, my favorite things are 1)The beautiful view out any window of the house; 2) A nice hot fire in the woodstove; and 3) Hot chocolate, hot chai, hot soup and hot fresh baked bread.
Once I’m outside I do enjoy a good snowy day, but I’m likely to spend much of the winter perusing seed catalogs and planning my spring garden. In spite of my usual winter hibernation habits, this past weekend was just TOO picturesque to stay indoors. Besides, there was a LOT of snow to move out of our driveway so I could get to work this morning!
Here are a few photos:
That’s my AWD chariot. In years past, I loaded groceries, guitars, and everything else on sleds to go up and down our driveway in the winter.
So… what are YOUR favorite things about north country winters?
