Winter - Love it, hate it, don't care?



We all have a love/hate relationship with winter...right??  You can love winter but there will still be things you hate (or just dislike) about it.  Maybe I’m wrong.  Maybe there’s 5% of you who love winter and have nothing negative at all to say about it…and good for you!  And by the way, this applies to those who live in states where there are actual seasons year round, not sun and warmth year round!

In any event, here are a few of my love/hates.

Things I love about winter:

~Playing outside with my dogs.  My dogs love the snow (not the freezing cold but the snow on nicer days)...even my smallest and he comes from the south!  They love running in it to chase a frisbee or ball, and they love trying to catch snowballs too!

~Walks on a snowy evening.  Everything around is peaceful as you look up into the streetlights and watch the snow lightly fall.

~Cozy days inside, sipping on coffee during the day and wine in evenings, while snuggled under a blanket watching a movie or reading a book.

Things I hate about winter:

~Ice

~Driving in snow or ice

~Shoveling

~Snow plows.  Yes, it's their job and I'm thankful to the men/women who drive them and keep our roads clear.  However, I don't like how they (unintentionally) plow snow back into the end of my driveway after I've finished shoveling, and I don't love the loud noise they make as they drive down my street at 4am.

~Cold wind

~Cold

So there are good and bad things about winter, in my opinion.  Do you have more loves than hates?  Are you neutral?  Are you one of those people who have no hates for winter?

L'eggo My Eggo!

Ummm...so I totally don't get these commercials.  First of all, I think most commercials are stupid.  But the "L'eggo my Eggo" commercial?  BOO!!

WHO steals food from someone??  I mean, what person takes a plate out from under someone else or takes their Eggo waffle out of the toaster?  RUDE!!

This commercial is especially stupid because normal people don't do that.  Maybe a small percentage of people do that...kids, perhaps?  Teens, maybe.

And if I was going to steal food from someone, it sure wouldn't be an Eggo!!
