I used to wish for snow days in my youth, like most kids. It would take an hour to locate the layers and bundle up. Sledding, making snowmen, it was all good. But then…skiing was fun, but it’s exhausting. Again with the layers, then those boots. I think I figured out that what I really like about winter is being snug and inside. I live in a warm climate, but we can get freezing cold winters and precipitation (we are 20 degrees below normal this year!). And as the climate changes (yes, it is changing), it seems to get even colder here in the winter.
So, thank you to the person who invented books that I like to read. I raise my hot beverage to you while I attempt to never stray from my space heater and/or fireplace and/or blanket. Now if there were only a way to keep the static electricity from attacking me.

The Sunday Post is a meme started by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. As she says:
It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
