If you only had one window to look out of for the next six months, what would you want to see on the other side? Describe the view & why you chose it.
Winter. — Cold, crisp air. Clear blue skies. Green trees & Bare trees. Grass that has died… with the occasional sprinkle of frost or maybe even of snow. Ice all around. A light breeze that blows. Cold. I want to see cold, wintry weather. Maybe a lake or a mountain? Or maybe just a backyard in a cozy little neighborhood. I’m not picky. I just want to see winter. — I want to look out my window & feel the chill on the inside. I want to sense it all around me. I want to see what’s outside that window come to life on the inside. I want to feel connected with it. —-
I feel more at peace during the winter months. There is just something I find extremely comforting & relaxing about it. — I step out into the cold & it brings an automatic smile to my face. It makes me want to spread my arms out & twirl around in circles like I did when I was a little girl. — I don’t know if it’s the love of cold weather & the sense of clarity I get from it, or the fact that I’m a book loving, blanket hoarder that loves to snuggle up with a hot cup of tea & read for hours on end…. Lol. — Either way, I thoroughly enjoy winter when it is here & long for it when it is away. —
One of my favorite memories from my childhood is one that should have probably been an indicator that I was going to love wintertime. — My dad would get up early to go hunting & my mom would always fix him a cup of coffee to take with him before he left. — I can remember several times when I would bundle up in my winter attire & take my dad his coffee. (I do believe one time in particular I actually dipped my finger in the cup & tasted it… I was not a fan, coffee smelled good, but it certainly didn’t taste nearly as good, lol!) — I remember that morning so vividly in my mind. I remember how I couldn’t help but smile when the cold air hit my face as I walked out across the yard. I remember how happy I was in that moment. How amazing it felt outside & how warm I felt on the inside. — To this day winter weather still makes me feel that way. — 🙂
