I'd been whinging last
Then I read Jodi's post and it made me stop, think and put things to into perspective.
So, all this week, I have been grateful to Winter for all of the things that it has to offer.
: The slower days with no rush to get out of PJ's, unless of course we have to be somewhere.
: The fact that the kids tend to sleep in longer, like actually past 7am, and sometimes up to 8:30am.
: The kids generally happy to go to bed at 7pm because it's dark. This, I know, will not happen in Summer.
: We celebrate this special boy's birthday...
: And my birthday...
: And our wedding anniversary.
: It's soup season, which means the easiest and yummiest of comfort foods.
: You NEED to try this cauliflower soup! It's awesome.
: Mmmm, Comfort Food!
: Offspring (even though the season ends next week. I will be in mourning!)
: We can splash about (but not too much, it's become awfully muddy).
: Did I mention the slower days? The slower days have cleared my head and made me happy.
I'm no longer willing this season away. Instead I'm relishing. Sure we're getting a bit of cabin fever. But there seems to be not much that a cardboard box can't fix.
Happy Mid Winter to you! What are you loving about it?
