- Winter is My LEAST Favorite Season
Is it summer yet? I'm SO done with this cold weather! Haha.
Winter is my least favorite season. It's too cold! I have a hard time staying warm at all, so the frigid winter conditions make me want to stay inside...which I don't like doing. I've been known to wear a coat when it's 80 degrees (Fahrenheit). My husband thinks I'm absolutely insane when I do that! Hahah.
My ancestors must be from somewhere warm, sunny, and tropical because I do not handle the cold well. Eddie is the complete opposite! He's from England where the weather is always colder and more brutal. He'll be complaining about how hot it is while I'm shivering. Or he'll go outside with just a t-shirt on and I need to wear 3 shirts, a sweater, coat, and scarf to be warm.
The best way to stay warm during the winter is to pile on the layers and sit as close to the fire as I can. I absolutely love our old wood stove! It pumps out some serious heat and keeps the house warm for hours and hours.
When I have to go outside I just pile on some serious layers. I'll wear two pairs of pants, extra socks, and I've even been known to wear 4 shirts plus a coat, scarf, and hat. Oh, and don't forget the gloves! That usually keeps me sufficiently warm to do my daily work outside.
Going horseback riding is a great way to stay warm! As long as the weather is nice (no snow or ice), then I like to go riding. I stay really warm because I'm working! The only thing that usually gets cold is my nose and maybe my ears.
So there you have it! I don't like the cold AT ALL! Do you?
