Mommy’s Bright Bundles and myself wishes you all a very Happy New Year! Let us hope and pray for peace, good health, and abundance of blessings. I appreciate all the visits.
Brace yourselves it’s winter time again. Snow storms, blizzard, freezing rain, icy roads…you name it. It is super cold. The winter weather is unpredictable at times. Laziness gets in the way because we know it is sometimes impossible to go out and run errands when it is freezing cold outside. We also think of comfort foods this cold season. We make all kinds of homemade soup and hot meals for our family to keep us warm.
Speaking of comfort and warm, what else can we think of to keep us warm in this wintry weather? Of course, we thought of winter clothing like coats, jackets, hoodies, thermals, and accessories (scarves, beanies, and winter socks). Wearing warm winter clothes helps keep our body warm in the winter. Though our homes are well-insulated and the heaters provide the heat we need, wearing weather appropriate clothing like thermal clothes and heated socks provides comfort in the wintertime. I mostly wear jackets and fleece pants everyday. Also, wearing winter socks around the house keeps me warm because I don’t like my feet feeling cold at all.
Staying home most of the time in the winter is boring, I know. I am also an outdoor person but in this cold weather, my motivation to do fun stuff outdoors is very low. But we need to be active to stay healthy and the freezing weather cannot stop some of us who like to have fun outdoors. Snow sledding, skiing, tubing, and riding snow mobiles are fun. To keep us from frost bites and hypothermia, winter gears and accessories are to the rescue. Cozy Winters electric socks can be worn especially when skiing, sledding, or ice tubing. These will help prevent our toes from feeling frozen in freezing temperatures. I remember one winter day years ago when I just walked outside in the snow wearing regular socks in my winter boots. My toes were numb and hurting after a few minutes of playing in the snow. I learned my lesson. I had heated socks since then.
I love winter season but not quite the freezing weather. Thanks to the warm winter products because these make our lives convenient and comfortable. Cozy Winters have them all.
We got a bit of snow this afternoon around 1:00 P.M. here in North Texas. My darling daughter kept telling me since this Tuesday about the possibility of snow because her teacher said so. I checked the weather forecast and it was clear all week and the freezing days are Thursday to Saturday. I found no chance of snow or rain whatsoever.
But when I was entering Walmart store to buy a pair of mittens for K close to one o’clock this afternoon, I saw flurries falling from the sky. I thought it won’t last long. As soon as I got home, the flurries turned into snow. So when my darling daughter arrived from school, we put on our winter coats, winter boots, and mittens then went outside and play in the snow.
You know children are naturally curious individuals. They always check on little things wherever they go, and whatever they do they will always ask questions. And we should be keen and ready to answer their inquiries. One of the things that amazes them is snow. What is snow made of? Why does it snow? We know that snow is composed of snowflakes. So K was checking the snow and saw snowflakes formation. She said to me,
“Mommy, snowflakes have different shapes right?
“Yes,” I said.
Naturally formed snowflakes differ from one another through happenstance of formation. (Wikipedia.org)
She found two and pointed at them so I can see. I won’t even see them immediately, those tiny little snowflakes on the plastic chair. 🙂
We had fun playing in the snow. K’s most favorite thing was when she found two beautiful snowflakes.
