Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge
Each Wednesday from January 9 – December 18, 2019, Long and Short Reviews is hosting a weekly blog hop.
Blogging is a fun way to meet people and get to know them. We’re offering a weekly “prompt” for authors, non-authors, bookish folks and others to share something weekly and gain new friends and visitors to the blog. There’s no pressure to write something every week (though it should be fun and a challenge), but we do ask that if you do post something, you share your link on the weekly post we’ll put up at our site (it will be the top post on the home page each Wednesday morning) — the link list will be open for new links for 48 hours. Other bloggers will also share their links and you can hop over and see what they have to share.
January 23rd – Favorite things to do in the winter
I’m not a huge fan of winter. Heck, I’m not even vaguely tolerant of it. I like warm weather and sun! Snow can be pretty, but I’m not fond of walking around in it or in the cold in general. I layer a lot and I find that an annoying process too. Sometimes watching the snow fall can be nice–I’ll give it that. Very recently we had a full-out blizzard here and it was pretty scary and amazing at the same time. I can’t recall a time when I experienced wind and snowfall like that. It was truly a force of nature and I was VERY glad to be inside (though I had to walk in it for a few minutes on the way home from work). Of course, we’re left with the unholy amount of snow in the aftermath and it makes life difficult for everyone.
I don’t ski or do any sort of winter sporty activities, but I appreciate those who do and find it fun. To each their own! I remember as a kid I liked to go out and play in it and build snowmen and whatnot, but then I turned into a grumpy adult who likes being snug and warm. I suppose it would be amazing to see REAL snow, like in the Alps and the arctic and places where there’s truly an amazing amount of it. I’d like to see Antarctica just to see it. For now I’ll content myself with pictures.
So, my favorite things to do in the winter involve being inside–being online, watching Hulu, cooking, cleaning, playing with my cat, scrubbing the grout, anything that doesn’t involve going out in the snow, but maybe getting to enjoy how nice it looks through my balcony doors. That is, until it turns to awful gray slush.
