Wintry Friday Five

The lovely Singing Owl brings us this seasonal Friday Five:

"Brrrr! Baby, it’s COLD outside! At least that is the case where I am this morning. We are in a January deep freeze. Have a cup of hot tea and tackle five easy seasonal questions."

1. What is the thermometer reading at your house this morning? It was 7 degrees F, windchill of -2.

2. Snow—love it or hate it? Indifferent to it right now.

3. What is winter like where you are? At this place, at this time, winter is brilliant! We've had a string of extremely cold, but extremely bright sunshiny days, something my spirit desperately needed. But I think we're getting more snow. Oh. Joy. Big whoop.

4. Do you like winter sports? Any good stories? Is sledding a winter sport? I like to do that, although I don't know how to steer very well, and tend to hit things --small trees, other sledders, deep snow banks, cactus ... [Nooo, not really. Just threw "cactus" in to see if you were paying attention ....]

5. What is your favorite season, and why? Spring, because my spirit emerges out of hibernation.

Bonus: Share a favorite winter pick-me-up. A recipe, an activity, or whatever. In Winter, I become a light junkie ...

    Snow indifferent...amen to that! And to the light cravings...I am with you on that all the way.

    DO you get a nice spring in MI? Spring in Chicago is just rain, cold, dreary...and then one day it turns hot and humid, summer...sigh...

    thanks for the prayers...the A is going to be difficult, but good at the same time.

    Yes, we do get Spring in Michigan ... but it doesn't start until June and lasts about 3 weeks!

    Don't blink --you might just miss it!
