I was just saying yesterday, "I am not ready for winter to end. I still need time to hibernate, think, write, bake, and rest."
Wow - ask and it is given! I woke up this morning to snow! A nice, light, soft falling snow.
I'm sure some think I may be a little mad. I really do appreciate the long, dark nights of winter and the cold, sunny days in my warm home drinking tea. It is my time to recharge for the year. It is easy to be quiet, easy to learn, easy to read, easy to knit, easy to sleep. I find spring and summer to be very stimulating. I never seem to accomplish all that I want to accomplish in these seasons and I find it challenging to rest.
I do love tulips and daffodils. I do love my summer garden. I do love swimming and eating all of the wonderful, fresh foods of summer. But I still need a little more winter.
