Today was the first snow of the year. It is December 1 – I really cannot complain that it is cold, gray, and snowy today. In the 20s. Have to get psyched – get in the mindset – it is winter! Time of darkness (dark on the drive in and dark on the drive home from work). Time of muddy paws as I let the dogs out. Time of cold walks and cold drives. Have to think of things I like in winter:
- my seat heater
- big warm sweaters
- a fire in the fireplace
- when the sun does shine – definitely appreciate those beautiful days
- snow or ice on the branches of the trees
- when the snow is sparkly
- the fun of giving gifts
- vacation times.
I will keep trying to remember positive happy thoughts of winter – open for suggestions….
