Hear me ROAR!


We survived that late-fall snow!  It quickly reminded me why winter is not my favorite season.


2014 was definitely the year that winter returned to Illinois.  So, I am taking the attitude that since it is still 2014 …. this early storm was carry-over from the Polar Vortex or whatever it was called and not an indicator of what is ahead.


It tends to take me awhile to “accept” winter.  I am not sure I will ever welcome winter.


In winter, I struggle with my attitude.  Winter touches so many months, though, I have to get a grip.  Soon.  What will my course of action be?

Nap?  Curl up with a blanket and good book?


Maybe, but probably should not get in the habit of that…

I will, however, of course, just make the coffee, even though I feel a little villainessy.


I will work on this ‘tude, knowing full well that the ground, trees, plants need their rest.  I will look at it from nature’s point of view.  This is the way it is in central Illinois.  And at least I am not in Buffalo, New York.

This.  Is.  Winter.  Hear me ROAR!

  1. I so agree with you. Hate winter also but we do just deal with it don’t we. Got snow up here also. Not much but enough to tell us it’s here. Yep got the coffee on and my underwear out! Take care. Elaine

    Not a fan of winter, either. I’m thinking the blanket and book are a good idea! Yes, thankfully we are not in Buffalo!

    I always enjoy your photo stories. I’m not a fan of winter, either, but thankfully, we don’t have as severe weather as some areas.
    Love your kitty photos, such sweet little balls of fluff!

    How can winter be so bad with those beautiful kitties to dote on? One chocolate point and one blue point. I had to look at the kitty photos twice.
