What Season Are You?

You Belong in Winter

Quiet, calm, and totally at peace...

You're happy to be at home, wrapped in a blanket, completely snowed in

Whether you're lighting a fire or having a snowball fight, you always feel best in the winter.

What Season Are You?

LOL this is so true, I adore winter. My energy soars in the winter months. hahaha

I love all the seasons, but my number one favorite is winter, the smell of a fireplace and all cozy inside. I even turn up the air conditioning in the summer so the fireplace won't make the room too hot. heh heh

I am fall, but I look best in winter colors.
I think it's right--I'm creative and love the smell of fall--crisp apples, turning leaves, not having to mow the lawn anymore for a few months--yeah.

I hate winter. We just had a huge St. Paddys day snowstorm, 12 inches, it snowed everything in, the birds are starving, I can't get the feeders filled fast enough, the Deer are in the back yard asking, where the salt lick is I keep telling thme it's buried under that pile of snow in the corner of the yard by the stream, and they are saying, well its your job to uncover it for us, and I am telling them don't hold your breadth.

No to winter, I will take spring anytime, it is a rebirth of everything I like. There is no greater spectacle to watch than a Mayfly hatch on a trout stream.

I learned a long time ago that time spent hunting or fishing is NOT deducted from your alotted time here on earth. It is a freebie, and put here to enjoy.

During the winters of 93 - 94, and 96 - 97 we had beautiful, soft snowstorms from Thanksgiving, through Christmas, and every week from thereon until April. Sublime.

Both winters were so cold, down to -25 with the wind, that our cat froze to the porch every time he jumped onto the railing. I spent days chipping ice from the overhang and gutters from the house; the soil contracted so much around the foundation that the Spring meltwater flooded the normally dry basement for a month. I was very happy.

It was so cold IN the house, even with electric heat and wood stove and kerosene heater that we had to scrape the insides of the windows to see the scene outdoors when the sun came up. Again, our cat, who would sleep on the picture window shelf, froze to the window. Funny.

My truck froze to the driveway, the meltwater and snow continually freezing on the driveway elevated the driveway into the garage by eight inches.

The snow piled so high around the long driveway that we had to shovel it back another ten feet from the tops of the piles in order to shovel more snow onto the heap. Good exercise.

In early May, I was raking the remains of the previous year's leaves under a hemlock border, and found six inches of ice under the leaves. What fun.

Lynn, fall is beautiful and the crisp leaves and the scent of fall too. There is a clean smell to it. The colors are so gorgeous too like a sunset on all the leaves.

Mark oh wow, what a great place you have, deer oh how I miss where I grew up. We had deer too in the winter and it was such fun to watch them come up to the house.

My husband hates winter too, I do understand the why of not liking it. Bitter cold, shoveling snow and having to keep water dripping so pipes don't freeze up. So many things not fun about it.

He says I am in love with the way a child loves it, making angels in the snow, hot chocolate on a cold night, the fire going the white snow covering the ground and the sparkle to the tree branches when the sun comes out. Hahahhaa yep those are the things I think about with winter. Not the realities. hahaha

Tincan Sailor, Indian Summer is wonderful.

Rhod oh my gosh, amazing. That is the part that does make it very hard for sure. When you said about how cold it was inside the house reminds me of when I was a kid and how cold our house would be even with the fire going. Just corners of the house that could not warm up and how getting out of bed in the morning sometimes was like oh no it is so warm and cozy under all these covers. hahahaha
