Have you been feeling the chill of winter this year? All things considered, it’s been a pretty mild winter at Blogthings headquarters. In fact, it’s going to be 78F today, and sunny. I can’t complain! (Although you will hear me complaining in the summer when there’s no escape from the triple digits.) Even though it’s been a pleasant winter down here in Texas, I’ve traveled enough to experience some real winter this year. I’m talking snow and way below freezing temperatures. And that’s enough to put me in the mood for winter quizzes!
I’m fascinated how we all love winter in our own ways. Growing up in the mountains of Colorado exposed me to many winter personalities – as well as the sides of my own personality during this season. At times, I am a comfort seeker in the winter. I love to curl up with a warm drink and a blanket. Or if I venture out in the world, I’d like to be somewhere with a fireplace.
I also have a bit of a playful winter personality. It’s hard to get me to be playful during a northeastern US winter. I’m way too cold to be much fun 🙂 But if you get me in a winter like the ones I grew up in, I love the combination of sunshine and snow. I love sledding and skiing and snowball fights… just as long as I’m not too terribly cold when I’m out playing. I was even known to make a snow fort when I was younger. Those were surprisingly warm!
Do you have a winter personality? Take my quiz What’s Your Winter Personality? to find out what side of you winter brings out. Let me know what your result is, and how accurate you think it is. I’m also curious to know… how are you surviving or thriving this winter?
