What Makes Winter Bearable

video

Starting a fire at 10:00 a.m.
Ordering a hyacinth garden for a friend recovering from surgery

Hot chocolate for morning break
Red lentil soup for lunch
Kaiserschmarrn for dinner
Roasted marshmallows for dessert

Silk long johns that keep thighs from turning pink
LL Bean rubber snow boots that allow trudging through slush
Hand-knit scarves that preserve some stylishness among all the winter garb

The wet hot of the bath water
The rumble of the snow plow
The smell of a wood fire
The glow of a candle

What else? Please add!

  3. Seeing a 19-month-old granddaughter make herself shiver when she says "Brrr."
    Watching the beauty of three morning snows in one week when we are retired and don't have to get out.
    Opening a can of soup for lunch instead of going out to eat.
    Getting a day in the 50s on a Saturday.
