I was born in the south and live in San Diego but I should live somewhere in the northeast. I love the snow, I love the cold and I love the mountains and green trees.  I can hear the collective “you can have it!” from all those who are enduring this chart topping winter of 2014.  But I have enjoyed all of the blog posts and beautiful photographs that you have all posted such as the one above from Thistlewood Farms. And this quote shared on one of my favorite blogs, Back Porch Musings says it all:

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:  it is the time for home.

~Edith Sitwell

It brings back such fond memories of wonderful afternoon and evenings spent with good friends after a long and cold day of skiing….nothing better in the world!

So I think I will put a pot of chili in the crock pot and set a rustic table and enjoy this “cold” and damp day in San Diego.

Stay warm and enjoy this quiet time before all the hustle and bustle of spring and summer are upon us—it is coming, I promise!

  1. One of my favorite winter things to do is a hot bubble-bath in our clawfoot tub, especially if the snow is falling. (Losing power, not so much…)
