I am thankful for.

In upstate New York it's not odd to get a blizzard out-of-season, except for the fact that there IS no real out-of-season for blizzards here. We get them in October and they knock out the power, and we get them in late March and everyone goes "NOOOOO!!" and laments the spring lost to twenty-degree temperatures and white fluffies.

But I'll tell you a secret.


I like the snow.

I think it's the most beautiful thing. And even though I'm probably a colder person than your average Jane (my natural body temperature rests at 96ยบ), I don't mind the freezing weather. I like to bundle up!

So I am thankful for this last lovely snow.

I am thankful for another chance to wear my coat and scarf.

And I am thankful for my electric blanket to keep me warm at night through my almost-favorite season!


  1. Good for you! I love a happy attitude!!
    Enjoy the snow while it lasts and the Spring flowers will be that much prettier when they finally pop out.

  2. If it was never cold you would never need scarves or cardigans and that would be very sad indeed!

  3. Very sweet - just what I needed today as I huddled next to the wood stove moaning about the cold :-) Thank God for seasons of cold...

  4. Oh me too...I have to agree I am a bit the same! When we lived in CO I loved it! ;o) It was random and wonderful! ;o)
