You do realize that despite our frigid weather, technically it is still fall. This week our temperatures were colder than those in Anchorage, Alaska. That’s just not right!
Don’t get me wrong – I love winter weather but in winter, not in fall. Winter is still my very favorite season. People often think I’m crazy – how could you not love frolicking outside during spring and summer?
I’m quick to inform warm weather lovin’ folks perhaps if they sold wool for a living they might have a different opinion. The best weather for my business is to have people cold, bored, and stuck indoors. Outside bad, inside good. I’m like the grinch of spring at parties.
Other than business reasons, I love a fire in the fireplace, hot chocolate, watching my shows and knitting, cooking all day, tucking everyone in with cozy blankets. But then again I am an indoor kind of gal. Bugs, dirt, wind and a non-climate controlled environment – forget it!
I am not totally jaded. Even though it is still fall, I am quickly reminded of the (short) list of things I don’t like about winter:
- Static Electricity
- Dirty Floors from Snowy Shoes
- Dry Lips and Skin
I don’t know any good tricks for #1, I shock myself at least once a day. You’re on your own as far as #2 goes – sorry but I draw the line at offering mopping services. But #3…now that I can help you with.
You really need to treat yourself to one of these:
These gift sets from the Honey House have just what you need – a small Bee Bar and tube of Lip Butter.
The Bee Bar is a completely waterless lotion, known for its remarkable healing properties. Best of all, it does not come off on paper or fabric…or YARN!
You’ll also love the Lip Butter. Rich in anti-oxidants, pomegranate seed oil, shea butter, and other exotic oils, it will drench dry, cracked lips in soothing moisture.
These cute little sets are only $12.50 and make perfect gifts!
In fact it is going to be my gift for two lucky people today. This is another audience participation deal.
What is your favorite season and why?
If it is NOT my favorite wintery season, try to find one nice thing to say about winter. It rains in spring and that is nice. See, even I can come up with something nice to say about spring. Be nice to my lovely winter.
Two lucky folks will win Bee Bar Lotion Sets, to be randomly selected. They may even be warm weather frolickers. I won’t judge.
