Heads or Tails - This Time of Year

This week's theme/prompt is:
TAILS - "This Time Of Year"
Tell what you do or don't like about this time of year.

Let's start with - It's COLD!! You don't even have to ask yourself if that's a like or a don't like, do you? Really, I do like a little cold, this time of year. I hate cold in the summertime when it's supposed to be warm, but in the winter...

I like being able to wear warm sweats and slipper socks or being able to curl up with a soft blanket. I like to warm up with hot chocolate or even by baking something and washing the dishes like I mentioned earlier. I like to crawl into my electric blanket-warmed flannel sheets at night. I don't particularly like the kind of cold we're having now, the below 0° and dangerous windchill kind of cold, but as soon as it warms up a little the snow is gonna hit again.

Of course, I like snow - as long as I don't have to go anywhere, because I really don't like driving on snow-covered roads. If I get to stay home, I love watching it snow and seeing everything covered in snow. It's so pretty. I don't even mind shoveling the driveway, as long as I have a little help. A winter without snow is like, well, a winter without snow. It's just wrong.

By the time winter is over and it's time for spring, I'll be ready for it, but for now I'm liking winter. I like every time of year, in its time.

Heads or Tails is a fun weekly meme hosted by Skittles.


  1. I like snow.. if I'm inside all nice and warm and looking at it through a window. I'm not a cold weather person. At all. :)

  2. Yes, the seasons seem to be just long enough to not mind them, but thankful when its passed to the next.

  3. I like a little bit of cold too, but when it gets to negative 20 or so I can live without it ;)

    My HOT entry is here

    Happy Holidays! :)

  4. I'm a whussss!! cold for me is below 60 degrees F!!!

    Too old for the cold going through my veins, and snow? Nope...50+ years of snowy winters that lasted between September and April each year...that's enough.

    Happy holidays to you and yours!!!!

  5. I love to look at snow..and some cold I can handle...but today...we are -32....Yuck.

    Merry Christmas!!

  6. Mine is all about the dislike of driving in the bad weather. I think we are thinking alike today ;-)

  7. You're right, a winter without snow is wrong... I have to drive to get to snow, but at least it stopped raining! :)

  8. You're so right - I'd far rather have snow in the winter than in the summer! Happy Holidays!

  9. Ooh, warmed flannel sheets... I love flannel sheets but haven't had any since my cats shredded the last set. It's on my wishlist & definitely high up! I agree with you completely! :)


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
