Winter warmers.

Some light snow on the mountains during the previous cold spell we had.

We’ve had 2 beautiful, mild, spring-like days, but the wind is starting to blow seriously now, and I’m sure the promised cold front is on its way. The possibility of 2 or 3 very cold days does not faze me, I love the cold weather!

Along with the cold weather, I also love food that most people consider perfect for cold weather – hearty stews andย  heavy, veggie- and-meat laden soups! Even thinking about cold wind howling outside, a huge pot of stew on the stove, and a warm, comfy lounge and some blankets for extra cosiness, makes my heart warm… Throw in some knitting and a soppy TV show/movie, and you’ve got perfection!

I also love winter clothes. Jackets. Boots. Scarves. Hand knitted sweaters and cardigans. Crochet afghans. It is ironic that I live in a country where winter is only 3 months long, and also very mild, compared to most other countries.

I know most people hate winter. I cannot quite understand that, as it really is an essential part of the cycles of life and nature, so rather than hating it, why not make it easier on yourself and embrace it? There are just soooooo many ways in which you can make yourself comfortable in the cold. And after all, you can pile on the clothes to make yourself warm, but in the heat, even if you strip down to bare essentials, it doesn’t help to cool down – not where we are, anyway!

Like comedian Billy Connolly says – ‘There is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes!’ ๐Ÿ˜€

I have yet to decide what we’re having for dinner tonight, but I do know that if the cold front is in full swing by tomorrow, as promised, dinner will be something warm and filling and comforting…

(I wonder if psychologists have figured out people’s personalities by the season they prefer yet?)

Until next time, stay safe! ๐Ÿ™‚
