Thursday Thirteen #5

Thirteen reasons I Love Winter

1…. Well, if you have the day off today because of a snowstorm then you know what I'm talking about for number 1... Day off school or work!!! Yay!

2.... You can go out and build snowmen!

3.... Helloooo..... snow angels!

4.... Hot chocolate has no calories and no fat when you drink it because it's ssooooo cold outside.

5.... I can watch the cat try to catch snowflakes through the window all day long! ;) Six years later she still thinks that by some miracle she'll actually be able to catch one!

6.... Any excuse for an extra cup of coffee I will support any day!

7.... In the winter you can always layer. In the summer, there's only so much you can take off!

8.... If you're having problems starting your car, you can always ask a hunky neighbour for help! :)

9.... If you have kids, this is a perfect opportunity to go out and play with them.

10.... I can watch my dog play in the snow all day long! She has light coloured blonde-white fur, and she knows it's hard to find her in the snow... she loves trying to hide... and I love trying to find her. Just the thought puts a smile on my face!

11.... I don't have to wear a bathing suit in the winter - hello! That means I want dessert!

12.... I have more time to relax... because seriously who's in a rush to leave the house?

13.... Did I mention I don't have to wear a bathing suit? :)

See... I hate winter and all this cold snow stuff! But I live at the beach and am a self-proclaimed beach bum, so my contract says I have to hate winter ;)

But I also have a white dog who LOVES the snow and loves to hide in it. It's definitely fun trying to find him.

Happy TT!

We are so lucky! LOL

Vicky said...

Annie - I love the beach too... but I can't stand humidity!

Angela - we are! Let it snow... let it snow! ;)

Christine said...

I love hot chocolate! And playing outside is fun. It's evern better when my kids play outside and I get to watch them from the windown as I drink my hot chocolate. :) And when they come in they are all cold and sit quietly under a blanket watching TV for an hour.

AMEN to another cup of coffee!! Happy TT.

Amy Ruttan said...

I agree with #1, as for the rest bah humbug, give me Spring or Fall.

Happy TT :)

Good times, good times.

I know EXACTLY how you feel. For example, today where I live, it's sunny and 70 degrees. Brrr. A real bone chiller for central Florida. I actually paused for a minute while leaving the house for work this morning to try to decide whether to go back in for my denim jacket. I decided not to.

That's winter in Florida, tongue firmly in cheek.

The kids do get the occasional hurricane day though. No snow days so far.

Michelle said...

I'm just thankful that our snow is gone! Course, now it's just rain, rain and more rain but I can still use that as an excuse for more coffee!

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Great list! I didn't know cocoa had no fat and no calories...

I'm not much of a winter fan though (beyond the cocoa)--I spend the whole season with FREEZING hands and feet, despite gloves and socks.

Vicky said...

Thanks for visiting guys... and yeah, cocoa does have no fat and calories... so does everything else you eat! Because hey, you don't have to wear a bathing suit! :)

Anonymous said...

Ahhh, right with you, Vicky! I love winter. Cold weather is just so cozy -- warm, cozy clothes, warm, cozy heat, everything feels warm and cozy as opposed to summer when everything seems hot and sticky and noisy! Ha!

Could you send some of that snow down my way? I'd love to have some snow *sniff*! :-D

Happy TT to you! :)

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you! You stopped by my blog and I've just been a wee bit busy! :) I hope you had a lovely Thursday! :) I love the snow... but don't like it when it's in the negative digits!! brrrrr

I work at home so I don't get much in the way of snow days though :(
