Rex Barker here with

We focus on Winter...

Winter is nature's way of saying, "Up yours."- Robert Byrne

Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.- Pietro Aretino

I like these cold, gray winter days. Days like these let you savor a bad mood- Bill Watterson

Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat.- Anonymous

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer- Albert Camus

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.- Anne Bradstreet

Perhaps I am a bear, or some hibernating animal underneath, for the instinct to be half asleep all winter is so strong in me.- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Every mile is two in winter.- George Herbert

One kind word can warm three winter months.- Japanese proverb

Spring, summer, and fall fill us with hope; winter alone reminds us of the human condition.- Mignon McLaughlin

Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories.- Anonymous

Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look what they do when they stick together.- Verna M. Kelly

Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.- Victor Hugo

I was just thinking, if it is really religion with these nudist colonies, they sure must turn atheists in the wintertime.- Will Rogers

I have always loved that quote about "Snowflakes" they are quite fragile and so beautiful, but OH! what power they have when they stick together!

I think we are guilty of that...trying to keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. If we could just get them reversed it would make life a lot simpler.

These are all great quotes about winter and this one is especially true about me "Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat.- Anonymous"
I keep the house at least on 80F or even warmer when it's real cold.

Have a great weekend. Stay snug and warm.
