Sleigh bells ring are you listening
in the lane snow is glistening.
A beautiful sight
we're happy tonight
walking in a winter wonderland
I am not very fond of winter or the snow and cold that it brings but there are many wonderful things in each of our 4 seasons so I try to be thankful for all of them. Winter doesn't start off half bad here as the days are busy with preparations for Christmas. And the great thing is that when the 1st day of Winter arrives, little by little the days do begin to get longer once again.
I do love the warm and comforting meals in the wintertime too. Soups and roasts that haven't been a part of my menu since Spring arrived have found their way back into my kitchen. I love turning the oven on when it is cold outside and I never turn it on in the summer.
As we settle deeper into this chilly season, It's a good time to remember to incorporate more fruit and veggies into our daily diet. Those extra nutrients give us the energy we need to plow through the winter months. I saw an article about some golden rules for high-energy eating : Never go more than four or five hours without eating, and include some protein at each meal or snack — like individual tuna salad packs, cheese sticks, or nuts. Keep your cupboards stocked with healthy foods you can grab and eat on the go.
Of course there are all sorts of wonderful warm and cozy things to do inside this time of year too. Reading is probably one of my favorites. I have to say that I really have enjoyed several of the free books offered for my Kindle. They are written by some authors that I've never heard of before but they've been surprisingly well written.
I hope your Wednesday is a wonderful one. See the wonders of the winter wonderland. May your wintery days be white, whimsical, and wonderful
