Discontented and pining for Spring? Thumbs up or down on the snow? How about shoveling your life away?
Discontented is such a sad word, the opposite of being in a state of happiness. Always wanting something more, different or better. Soon, I show how to make winter weather a bit better by making the best of it. This post just shows the pretty side of snow in the Buffalo area, East Aurora to be exact.
Over and over I hear people wishing winter away.
I look at the big sky above and am thankful for a day such as this. It is a gift, like was said in my post, Slow it Down Sunday. To be here in nature’s wintry woods knowing wildlife is safe and warm or in snow-covered fields that will grow food this Spring to nourish life makes one appreciative of each season’s contribution. Each season giving to that of the next. Wish it away and next season would not meet its potential.
Winter offers us beauty not found in the other three seasons, a time to be grateful for what we have each day. Only 89 days of winter in the Northern hemisphere, and all are not wintry weather either. Dreaming only makes one miss the wonders of today. Find your peace with each season as it comes. Enough said…
Enjoy the views.
Photography is a great hobby in winter.
Did you see the Nat Geo article on getting off your butt in winter? To Burn Fat, You Could Exercise… or Just Shiver. New research points to shivering as a potential aid for weight loss.
I’d say that’s a great motivator to get out and enjoy!
21 waiting patiently on Spring…
Next post, is Why Are Cardinals Red?, a question a reader asked. Then, Blizzards and Beaches, ways to make winter a bit better as you wait for Spring.
I want to share this from Mike Randall at WKBW TV-7 Eye Witness News. This is to show you what the weather is like here compared to all the reports you are getting from elsewhere. People here are tough and like to have fun when it snows. This is for all the folks getting the snow!
Now do you think we are a tough bunch up here? Buffalo folks make the best of it, whining is not allowed.
