winter is....

photo: by Kate

frosty leaves
hot chocolate with marshmallows
over sized flannel shirts
walking towards the front door, anticipating the rush of warm air once it's opened
good books and blankets
wool socks galore
sweaters, sweaters and more sweaters
"ice skating" across the slippery, icy porch
cold fingers
hot tea
gray skies and fresh air
crackling fires filling our home with warmth
photography opportunities
reserved time to stay inside and write poetry
an excuse for baking ;)
staying up until 3:30 in morning with mom, watching Iron Man and eating brownies
laughing with teriyaki jerky in my mouth
reading until my eyes are heavy
wishing to walk in the thick fog although it's freezing outside
searching for my slippers
standing by the oven just because it's warm
looking forward to bedtime
making a list of more books to read
thinking about the new year ahead of us....

  4. I'm jealous. I adore winter-but where I live right now (TX) it's like...in the 70's at the moment. But we do get some cold days here and there-and when we do I try to soak it up as much as I can :)
