Welcome Winter

Winter's chill is invigorating Like and electric chair--zap! Those cold hands make me want to run screaming Get those icicles away from me!! Oh snap! Welcome winter, don't last too long, where is my cap? The blustery wind in less than fifty degrees Cuts like a knife, injury to injury I say, winter don't stay High heating bills, charge account is over drawn, PLeeease! The daylight is short and the sky is gray Why does it have to get this way?? For Carol Brown(for the contest) Oh yeah welcome WINTER! Christmas charge account is over drawn?? I owe what??

I hate winter, but I do love Christmas! What a lovely time to give, if you don't let the commercialism get to you. I make many of my own gifts. I feel it comes more from the heart that way. I am always glad when spring comes, I blossom best then. Thanks for sharing!

You sound the way I feel about winter. Yes, the cold brings new problems and more cost. I did a blog asking if anyone else had scoliosis so you can have a read at the comments. Hope things are better and you are feeling better. Have you had any relief at all? So far it looks like only you and me. Luv Phyl
