All in all, it was a prime example of taking the bad with the good when it comes to winter. When you're tucked away all cosy in your den, wrapped in a plush afghan, hot cocoa in one hand, thrilling novel in another, there's probably not a prettier site than winter through a window. It can be quite romantic, really.
But when you're travelling or have loved ones on the road, it can prove a worrisome condition at best.
So it was with mixed feelings that I greeted this morning's snowfall. I appreciate, how very fortunate I am to live in an area where we are treated to four distinct seasons and winter is one of the most beautiful. But I dread the driving and suffer the shovelling. I shiver and shake, throb and ache from the cold and damp.
Yet one must focus on the positive, even when winter makes me feel most miserable. Which is why I opted to share this collection of illustrations today. These cute cartoons are sure to put the cheer into a chilly winter day:
