Welcome Winter

While we usually look forward to summer for the freedom it offers
 for me the last summer was long & unbearable , so this year I 
have decided to embrace winter.
Embrace it for all it offers , the rare feeling of feeling cold,
 having more energy (no hibernating for me)
 snuggling in bed a bit longer in the mornings,
having bowls of hot homemade soup,
wearing a cosy jacket & scarf,  going on lovely long walks,
picnics , gardening without getting sunburnt & no mozzie bites !
And if the budget allows it (renovating is costly) a trip to the
snow in Victoria or NZ with the kids.
While we dont get snow here in Qld , I was feeling strangely 
envious of these beautiful creatures. While I am sitting  here 
writing this my toes are feeling chilly this morning to the point 
I have to get some socks , Love it !

  1. I have to agree with you on the long hot summer Karyn, completely over the heat! I've been waiting for it to cool down so I can paint all of our internal doors without breaking into a sweat. Those pictures make me want to get started:o)

  2. Gorgeous creatures, what a lovely winter post..Rachaelxx

  3. Oh those penguins put a smile on my face!

  4. Fantastic photos & love the penguins - hilarious!

  5. Oh, cute pics, they made me feel a bit chilly! I am not a fan of winter, I hate being cold.

  6. Those penguins are gorgeous little things arent they! xx

  7. I have to say I would take winter over summer any day! I hate the heat! I'm not nice in the heat! Hope you get to see the snow and I'd love to enjoy a hot bowl of soup with you!

  8. I used to be such a summer girl too but now I really enjoy winter and have learnt to embrace the rain and cool weather - there's nothing like snuggling up in front of the fire with a hot cuppa and a good book or magazine :)


Love reading all of your comments.
