Do you like Winter?
Folks ask me often the same question since I’ve been here, “Do you like winter?” It may sound surprising but I do! I like the change of atmosphere, the crisp of the snow and the fresh air. I like the smell of wood burning from the wood stove. I consider myself blessed to be able to experience the four seasons of this beautiful country, Canada.
During my first year in Quebec, Mike & I lived in a country where we used to get a lot of snow. It was a beautiful place from the Lord. Back then I saw many wild animals that passed by our road and that was amazing!
During the winter time, we would suit up and go outside and have fun. Even the simple task of shoveling was fun & exercise at the same time. I think my favorite was sliding on a crazy carpet ending up on the frozen pond; that was great!
A few years later when the house was sold we moved to a new location and sure enough we still had to do outdoor stuff. Mike initiated me to Snowshoeing. I personally like it better than skating.
Yesterday was an amazing day, a full perfection of everything; thank you Lord. The sun was beautiful, not too cold. Perfect weather, not windy at all; it was a very mild winter day.
THINGS WE ENJOY ABOUT WINTER:
SNOWSHOEING & MAKING A TRAIL
WINTER SCENERY, BIRDS SINGING, WATCH ANIMAL ACTIVITIES, RELAX & LISTEN TO THE RUNNING WATER FROM THE RIVER
SETTING UP CAMP
TESTING SOME NEW GEARS
OUTDOOR COOKING AFTER A HARD DAY’S WORK
A NICE FIRE, RELAX & SOME PICTURE TAKING
I know that it’s WORK! But after doing it you will be glad that you have done something in the forest and breath some fresh air, change your mind a little (refresh), have something to eat, play around with your gear and gadgets, and finish it with a good bonfire enjoying the good company of your friends or family.
It was a perfect beautiful day for Mike & I! I hope that you can enjoy the great outdoors & have fun even in the winter!
