Terrifico Tuesday – Winter Wonderland

Submitted by on December 8, 2009 - 11:30 am

The holidays are fast approaching. Lights, music and holiday cheer abound. Although it has been years since I lived in my hometown of Amherst, Massachusetts it still doesn’t quite feel like the holidays without a little snow. I miss getting all bundled up to make snow angels, go sledding for hours and then come home to Mom’s hot chocolate. The not so fun part about sledding when I was young was that boots just weren’t as waterproof as they are now. That meant that I had to wear bread bags over my socks, with rubber bands on my ankles, so that my feet wouldn’t get wet. And because my feet were frozen when I got home my mother insisted that I place them under cold running water, not hot. (There was some sort of logic to that, but I still can’t quite figure it out). So although I miss the beauty of the snow I can’t say that I miss my bread bag socks or frozen feet.

What is your childhood winter memory?

    I do remember does times when I was a kid and how I spend hours, sledding and making snow forts too.:)
    I too remember that my hands were cold one time and my dad also told me to put them in cold running water so that the blood could start circulating again because hot water would make it run too fast and cause severe pain.
    One of my favorite memories was when the whole family came for christmas, even some distand relatives too.:)
    (I was three at the time).:)

    I am going to have to try this. I had heard good things about quinoa and even bought some, but so far couldn’t get anyone to eat it. I have a whole bunch ready to use, so let’s hope my husband will eat it!

Leave a comment below, thank you!
