It's a very chilly Sunday morning in old Sydney town today, but I don't mind. It's nice to be able to curl up on the lounge and soak up the heater.
It's almost July, which is just crazy because it was Christmas just five minutes ago. As the year is flying by so quickly, I'm naming July appreciation month. I'm not one to really like winter, it's just those dark months in the middle of the year that always seem to take me by surprise. From right now, I'm going to enjoy the chilly weather.
I'm going to soak up cuddles with babies in fleecy all-in-ones.
I'm going to have chats and giggles with my girls over hot chocolates and babycinos at our local cafes. I'm going to leave for school earlier and enjoy a leisurely walk in the winter sun and stop and chat to neighbours.
I'm going to catch up with my friends. Have a drink and a laugh in a local pub.
Cook something warm and slow more often.
I'm going to enjoy every minute of my birthday instead of not wanting to make a fuss.
I'm going to eat a bacon and egg roll where the yolk drips down my chin.
I'm going to curl up with the kids and watch a movie and eat popcorn.
I'm going to the movies with Skip. Which is something we NEVER do.
I'm going to make more effort and see friends instead of putting it in the 'too-hard' basket.
I'm going to enjoy lazy mornings during the school holidays.
I'm going to enjoy a leisurely Sunday lunch.
I'm going to make a big pot of soup.
I'm going to visit a country town and breath in fresh cold air until my lungs sting.
I'm going to appreciate this life I've got here with my friends and family.
What do you love doing in winter?
