I like wearing new fuzzy scarves (or moustache cowls).

Gunilla said...

I love the smell of snow and the cold fresh feeling in my nose, funny as it might be! Right now we're having really cold weather here, and I love it!

Sherry said...

I like using my cozy quilt made by my great grandmother when the weather turns cold.

Anita said...

I'll have to copy your idea, because I don't really like a single thing about the cold. I think snow is beautiful, but I'd rather look at it while sitting in front of a hot fire.

Making snowmen was always fun. =)

Thanks for a chance to win.

Diane aka cameldiva said...

I love the way the sunlight glistens on freshly fallen snow, and the beautiful hoarfrost that gently coats branches, and twigs, and even cobwebs and blades of grass.

The only thing I like about the cold is the starry nights when it's freezing, but that's about it lol.

Nikita said...

Er I absolutely without a single shred of doubt in my mind hate the cold.. just plain hate it, it brings out the worst in me..I get stupid and just don't know what to do with myself when I am cold..I prepare for winter as though it will be an ice age, and I live in TX.. so the only thing I can think of.. is it gives me a great reason why I cannot leave my house and I must keep myself occupied with crafts or quilting.

quiltinggrammy said...

The cold weather gives me an excuse to stay in the house to quilt or just read by the fire and I don't need to feel guilty about doing this as I do in the nicer weather when I should be out working in the yard.

Captain StitchyPants said...

Cold days here are usually clear, bright and sunny. I love that. The rest of the winter is usually so grey.

Flannel sheets, and snuggling up in bed with my husband and now my baby girl too! Especially if it's raining outside as well :)

It rarely gets REALLY cold where I live, but I love it when it does, because that means no bugs or snakes in my yard! (I know, that's just sad, isn't it?)

Sybil said...

I don't like winter. Not one little bitty bit. But it does take care of bugs for a while. No mosquitoes and no gnats.

wipgirl said...

My goodness... something I like about the cold. I'm one of those people that are prety much always shivering and complaining about needing the heat turned up, but I guess the one good thing about the cold is having an excuse to bundle up in blankets and flannels and huddle in to watch a movie or read a book.

kimmysue said...

I like the snow, and since it doesn't snow unless it's cold, that's my favorite thing about cold weather. Second favorite thing is that there are no snakes and the spiders and scary bugs die. Terrible of me, but I hate snakes and spiders.

I love the snow & fresh air during the winter. A great chance to wear my hand knit scarves.
nicolesender(at)yahoo(dot)com

Sue said...

Since I live in Florida it is seldom that our "cold" is really that cold but it is a nice change to go out wearing a jacket or sweater. And the best thing is to climb into bed and get under a quilt to stay warm.

Coming in from the cold! And smoke puff breaths. And this little verse from two sides of the window from the book Arm in Arm by Remy Charlip:
Isn't it nicer to be in a nice warm bed rather that out in the cold?
Isn't it nicer to be playing out in the cold than inside in bed?
