    The sound of the crunch as I walk on it........

    The lack of vehicles on our otherwise busy front road.....

    The winter birds come to my feeder: cardinals, blue jays, chickadees, juncos, nuthatches, downy woodpeckers...

    I don't have to weed the garden.

    My hair seems to straighten better in the winter (less humidity), so I never have to worry about "bad hair days." [​IMG]

    The smell of the woodstove- especially if you throw a chunk of cedar in there!

    The food- winter squash, potatoes, comfort food in general [​IMG]
