SOC - Winter

I'm linking up today for the first time with Fadra's


Today’s Writing Prompt: How does winter make you feel and what do you do with those feelings?

Winter makes me feel cold and sleepy. It's gets so dark and dreary here in MN. Somedays I just want to curl up and sleep all. day. long.

Of course, there are wonderful things about winter. Like hot chocolate and warm cookies.

It's been a pretty pleasant winter so far this season, and I'm not entirely sure how this bodes for the remainder of the season. If it's nearly 60°F in early Jan, what will it be like in mid-March? Will it be super cold or will summer come early?

I've always been the type of person who would much rather be HOT than COLD. I know, I know. If you're cold you can always put on more clothes or wrap up in a blanket. yada yada yada.

BUT I'd much prefer to wear little and sweat a LOT.

Maybe I'm just weird that way.

This will be my last winter in the frigid north, though. I'm very excited to live in an area with much more temperate weather in the coldest months. I'm looking forward to beaches and diving. And RUNNING outside. all year long!

Want to play along? Here are a few rules:

  • Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.

  • Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.

  • Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.

  • Add the Stream of Consciousness Sunday badge to your post.

  • Link up your post.

  • Visit your fellow bloggers and show some love.

    1. You don't think you'll miss the snow? Enjoy the beach!

    2. I like the hot better than the cold, too. The cold just makes me tense and grumpy. I'd rather break into a sweat when I walk out the door and have my hair get frizzy than be uncontrolably shivering (it doesn't take much for me) and have my hands all dry and hurting because it's so darn cold outside :)

      What area are you moving to?

    3. Oh and PS, I think I fixed it so that my email is working with my blog comments...I think that when I changed everything and got a new email address that I forgot to fix that setting.

    4. I lived in Cleveland for years which is a wee bit better than MN but I get it. It's not the snow that bothers me. It's the cold and gray. Luckily, winter in NC is usually mild and this year it's been quite mild recently. I think I'll take it!
