This is normally when...

...I long for this kind of day!

I miss the sun and I really miss the warmth. I look out and see white and I see gray skies and normally this time of year I suffer from SAD, but not so much this year!

This year winter began late, and our snow fall his been quite minimal to this point.

...and I am loving it!

We have been lucky in missing alot of the big snowfalls. We have had temperatures that have been really cold...I am talking -20C, but we got through it.

Guess what...we are in for a January thaw this coming weekend! Temperatures are going to be above 0C, by next Tues they are saying 4 or 5C!!

So, here we are approaching mid January, and things are looking good for a relatively calm winter!

We're kinda in the middle of a January thaw too!!! I'm glad you're not stuck with SAD this year!

Jenners said...

That is always nice when winter isn't as bad as you expected!!! We're having more snow than usual and it is bitter cold. Perhaps we got your winter by mistake????

Janet said...

Goodness me! Global warming? We haven't had as hot a summer as we normally have, and have had plenty of rain - which is a good thing when it comes in massive showers, late afternoon! Constant days of rain is not normal!

Mighty M said...

I think we are going to have a mild winter too (mostly rain). I get the blues too - I hope the sun comes to visit once in a while! :)

Dee said...

Really? I'm in the south and it's actually colder than normal here-but no snow so I'm not complaining!

Hope you get your warm weather soon!!!

Auntie E said...

Warm will return soon.
My WW link for you

Amy said...

I am with you.. I want the sun..

Jennifer said...

Snow and winter in general make me happiest. It is sunny now and melting what precious little snow I have.

Kristie said...

I've been missing the sun and warmth too. I'm sure it will be here before we know it! :-)

Kristina P. said...

We haven't had snow in over a week. I am loving it!

Oh, except our air is the worst in the nation!!!

Beautiful :) We're stuck in a la nina winter. Haven't had snow for more than a few hours, warm nights. I imagine we'll have our snowy winter in springtime like last year. Boo!

suchakingdom said...

Wow, that is cold! We've been whining about our 10 and 11 degree weather!

Kara @ His, Hers and Ours said...

I'm in Florida, and have unseasonably cold weather. Like in the teens, and that is so very rare. If it's gonna be this cold, I think there should be some white fluffy stuff to go with it! Glad you aren't suffering from SAD this year!

Randi Troxell said...

i think i suffer from SAD too.. i totally think so..

glad you are feeling good though.. i'm sooo EXCITED b/c this sunday its supposed to shoot up about 15 degrees down here... and i need it, BAD!!

Irene said...

I am spoiled by the weather here-- don't know how I would deal with snow.

Cascia said...

I think a lot of us are wishing for warmer weather. Have a terrific Wednesday!

Sue said...

Winter here doesn't seem as bad this yr. here either. The past few yrs. we got over 100 inches of snow. This yr. I'm not sure of the totals so far, but it doesn't seem were on that track (hopefully)

Stay warm! We're getting a warm up tomorrow too. Happy WW!

We had a deep freeze a couple weeks ago but now it's nice, so I'm trying not to complain! We've only had one snowstorm this year and while we still have tons of snow left from that storm, it hasn't been anymore so that is good. I have been spending sometime outside with my dog but not as much as I really should be. I feel guilty about it. *sigh* but anyway I'm really glad we are having a halfway decent winter this year, it should always be like this. :)

ter@waaoms said...

but I am still looking forward to when the snow is gone so I don't have to wear boots. lol

Pamela M. Kramer said...

We have sunshine but cold and wind too! Ugh.

hippo chick said...

I don't mind the cold or snow, but I really, really miss sunshine. Hence, Henderson, NV. We will be leaving just a couple of days after my 65th birthday. YIPPEE!! Oh, about the trip, the birthday, not so much.

~hippo hugs~

CanadianMama said...

Yep, here in Alberta it's been between 5-10 everyday and while the roads are sloppy I'm LOVING it!!!

Midlife Mom said...

We've been having a real bad cold snap. It was sooooooo cold when I was outside today hooking up my horse trailer!!! Tomorrow is supposed to be better thankfully!

I am very interested in the cookie cutters that you reviewed. I would love to order some Disney ones for my grand kids so am going to take a looksy at the website!

Nice site!

I know exactly what you mean about enjoying the weather. I miss those calm walks around the block or watching my kids play at the park. Before we know it, it will be warm once more.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

We have had some really warm days here. I would have liked a little snow.

Thanks for stopping by.
