I live in between two pretty decent sets of neighbours.
If you read my neighbour post last year for the A-Z Challenge you’d know this is a truly rare gift.
What makes these people great?
We all seem well matched in temperament, personality styles, communication and what it means to be respectful.
This is magic enough but in the Winter time something extra, extra happens:
By some unspoken agreement, we seem to have decided that whoever gets out there first, shovels the sidewalks. Sometimes its me or the Hubs, sometimes its the young couple, sometimes its the family next door.
Not a Winter day has gone by without one of us, shoveling the other walks along with our own.
No thanks are spoken, no mention is made. It’s our actions that are speaking loud and clear ❤
As you all know, this Winter has been a cold one. ( As Winters are…) I’ve survived mostly by keeping the cold goings on, in the background. I don’t remark about it, I don’t pay any attention to it. I focus on whatever is in front of me at the time. It’s been working great and has allowed me to start noticing all the LOVELY things about Winter, all the little gifts from the cold. Like:
Hot laundry on a cold day!
There is something so comforting about folding hot laundry when you’re freezing your ass off. Its not just the temperature that makes me feel good, its the great contrast between temperatures. Icy air against burning hot fabric. The hot makes the cold feel GOOD! Which in my mind, is something of a miracle 🙂 I may almost miss this one. I may even look forward to this come Summer…whaaaaaaat?!
With Spring well on her way, our lives are heading for a big change! The things we find pleasurable will change so I want to know, what are some of your Winter pleasures?
