A lot of folks get the weary dismals this time of year, so I thought I'd start a list of things that make me happy about winter.
1. A steaming hot cup of coffee and some good conversation around the kitchen table after coming in the house for breakfast or dinner on a cold winter day.
2. Running with the goats. Every morning we reposition the fainters from their stall to the goat pen while we feed horses. And every morning, no matter what's come the night before, they hit the door with enthusiasm, running full tilt. Anything that can start the day with that much enthusiasm deserves more than a smile and a moment, so Melissa and I run with them. Honest to goodness we do. Every morning God sends. Never fails to make us smile !
3. Feeling warm sunshine and cold wind on my face while working outside on a crisp, clear day.
4. Being able to work really, really hard and not work up a sweat !
I hope you'll add to my list. What makes you happy about winter ?
