Once I am home, I love to start a 'real' fire in the fireplace and just seem to relax with the aroma of the burning oak, watching the flames. It is somehow transfixing. A great time to share with family. Play a game of cards, read a book, watch old movies. Be brave and toast some marshmallows! Have hot chocolate and just be...
And then there are the outdoor activities.
- have a snowman building contest..who can be the most creative
- cross-country ski
- take a walk and look at the snow and small icicles on the branches with the sun shining through them...they look like jewelry
- have a snowball fight
I hope you take the opportunity to enjoy this season.
I certainly know it can be rough...I am from Wisconsin, so I know winter!
But always keep this in mind...
live every day as if it is your last, because you don't know what tomorrow will bring.
