And so it begins…the whining about winter. Yesterday morning, in my little neck of the woods, we woke up to a beautiful blanket of snow. At first glance, most marvel at the majestic beauty that Mother Nature bestowed upon us through the night but within seconds, that delight turns to pissing & moaning about the weather. Cue winter….
Now I might be going out on a limb here, but for as far back as I can remember, we get snow. Seriously people…WE LIVE IN CANADA!!! It should come as no surprise that have winter!
If you do not like winter, you should:
A. Move a sunny climate year round
B. There is no other option….move to a sunny climate!!!
Embrace the changing seasons. Winter is a time for nesting, hot chocolate, warm fires & cozy sweaters. Strap on a pair of snowshoes & take a walk through the woods after a beautiful snow fall & just stop & listen to the the silence. Lace up a pair of skates & find an outdoor patch of ice or better yet skate the canal in Ottawa stopping along the way for a delicious Beaver Tail. Take a ski lesson & stand at the top of a mountain to view one of the most incredible vistas your eyes can see. This is winter in its glorious beauty!
Put on your big girl/boy pants, throw on a few extra layers & find something to get you outdoors & active during this season. I have a hunch it will most likely last until March or April so you might as well enjoy it while its here.
Have a wonderful day!
