the top 10 things I love about winter

7 Mar

No, I don’t love winter. As I have mentioned before I have devoted myself utterly and completely to summer. For life. But still, one must appreciate the good things in life and the following are the things I can’t live without during those cold winter days(don’t forget I live in Greece, so cold is anything under 10 degrees C):

  1. our electric blanket nothing beats entering a warm bed before drifting away to precious sleep-land (once you have been sleep deprived for more than 5 years you tend to worship sleep)
  2. the (very few) chances I get to snowboard with N. when the snow is fresh, the sun is shining and the day away from my kids turns into one of these bring it on
  3. Christmas holidays although we haven’t had the perfect WHITE GERMAN CHRISTMAS for a while, we make the most out of it and spend quality time with family & friends over great food (it really can’t get any better than that)
  4. early nights for the kidslook honey, it’s already dark outside (5:30pm)’. No, I haven’t taught Yiannis to tell time, I am not a masochist which brings me to no 5…
  5. more quality time with N. on the evenings that we STILL have some energy left to interact with each other (tiredness and cozy warm bed are working against this)
  6. the fireplace should it work properly
  7. 8 & 9 I ran out of things I love about winter, I can go on and mention the 50 things I love about summer but that wouldn’t be fair to spring.

How about you? Which season are you?

Until next time,
