I am one of those strange people that actually like winter. I am not a big fan of being cold but I do like to participate in the winter activities. I love walking the dogs on a snowy day and seeing the tapestry nature creates with the snow on the trees. I love to strap on skies and go cross-country skiing. I love to skate on the canal (although I haven't gotten out yet this year) and I love to take the 4-wheelers on a winter run.
Winter is one of the joys of living in Canada. Winter driving is not always great, but if you take your time you get where you are going in one piece. There are uncomfortable days when it is really cold but then there are great days with the sun shining on a new snow-fall and I cannot wait to get out into it.
I think we have forgotten the joy of enjoying a crisp winter day. Growing up has made us forget how much fun we had playing in the snow. The kid in me wants to keep playing, the adult says get back to work. It is winter, I think I will let the kid win out a little more often.
