Winter was never my favourite season. I am definitely a lady that needs fresh air, sunshine and warm breezes to get me going. But living in Canada means quite a few months of snow and frigid temperatures that one must deal with.
I can't think of a better way to deal with the -20 degrees Celsius which is presently blowing outside my front door (that's -4 Fahrenheit for our American friends!) than with a blazing fireplace to warm the home!
