This is our second winter in New England and I have to say I’m loving this 50-60 degree weather in January. I guess we got lucky last year too because it only snowed a few times. It has been so different living in the northeast. I try to find something positive every where we live and I have to say I love the summer here the best. We were able to go to the beach (although very different than what I’m use to) almost every weekend, the water is still extremely cold in the summer but at least we could be outside. The summers are much shorter but I think it makes you enjoy it more because you know it doesn’t last long. I also enjoyed the spring where I learned to garden, I really didn’t think I had a knack for that but surprised myself with how much I enjoyed playing in the dirt.
I’ve also surprised myself by learning to knit and actually enjoying. I was trying to find hobbies to do inside during the winter when it’s too cold to do anything else. I got a sewing machine last Christmas although that’s not going to well, I have successfully hemmed up one pair of pants though!
