And hot chocolate with lots of marshmellows!!

Joanne said...

Great list, I'll add warm winter sweaters. I love this time of year :)

VR Barkowski said...

I'd like to add Linda's hot chocolate to #2, the warm fire. It's a lot chillier here in Atlanta than I expected. :)

I do love winter, though. Comes from a childhood of hellish half-year summers.

Summer Ross said...

Holidays and hot chocolate! Great list!

I think wind is too much lol, but I'm in Wyoming, we are ranging gusts up to 60mph in the last few weeks bringing in storms.

Laura Eno said...

And cold toes because I'm still wearing flip-flops instead of socks! I have two birthdays this month as well...hard to keep up with all of it. :)

Joanna St. James said...

have you tried hot chocolate laced with cinnamon?
I would like to add snow blowers and trucks to the list.
Have a lovely weekend Carol

Carol Kilgore said...

Linda - Oh yeah.

Joanne - Especially nice soft ones.

VR - That's the perfect spot :)

Summer - Yikes. That's really strong. And if it's blowing snow, that's a million times worse.

Laura - We have flip-flop winter days here, too, but not solid. Today's one, though.

Joanna - Yes! I love it. Now we have snow blowers and trucks. I'll need to make an amended list!

Holly Ruggiero said...

Great list. Winter is the most intimate season, don’t you think?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Christmas and cold weather - totally awesome!

kimberlyloomis said...

Lots of snuggles to warm the soul and heart. ;-) Great list, Carol.

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

Great list on a cold, wintry day! Happy Friday, Carol!

The Golden Eagle said...

I love frosty air, and all of the holidays are definitely a bonus!

Great list!

Carol Kilgore said...

Holly - Yes. It makes us want to touch one another.

Alex - I'm getting into the spirit of Christmas.

Kimberly - Thanks.

Elizabeth - We've had a week of cold, but today is nice. Happy Friday to you, too.

Golden Eagle - I love the holidays!

Elspeth Antonelli said...

I'm not so fond of the icy roads and snow is pretty to look at as long as I don't have to go anywhere in it. Another great list, Carol!

Lydia Kang said...

I need a blanket to read this. And a cup of hot cocoa.
Love your lists!

Talei said...

Snow, skiing, snuggling in front of fires, and holidays - perfect! Where do I sign up? :)xx

Carol Kilgore said...

Elspeth - I agree with you!

Lydia - LOL...I'm barefoot and wearing a t-shirt and capris. But hot chocolate still sounds good :)

Talei - Let me know when you find the spot, OK? We'll sign up together!

Ann Best said...

I love to envision the warm fire!!

The Words Crafter said...

jammies, warm throws, fuzzy socks, decorating the house, lots of visits with 'puter friends!

Carol Kilgore said...

Clarissa - Turn down the A/C to icy in the summer...problem solved :)

Words Crafter - You're the original snuggle bunny!

Colette said...

And lights! (as in Christmas lights!)

notesfromnadir said...

Ice skating is always #1. But I prefer the indoor type of ice rink!

Carol Kilgore said...

Collette - We just came in from looking at them in our neighborhood.

Lisa - Indoor rinks are MUCH warmer!

Talli Roland said...

Yay for holidays, tummy filling food and fires! Yuck on the cold.

RaShelle said...

Carol - Ah, yes. My fav is a fire in the fireplace. I love it. =D

Carol Kilgore said...

Talli - Exactly. And you've had a real dose of cold and snow. Stay warm.

RaShelle - Romantic :)
