1. the snow covers the
mud pit backyard.
I know once all that melts (could be tomorrow with all the rain in the forecast) it’ll be worse but for tonight, it’s pretty white fluffy snow.
2. my furnace works.
It’s been working like a champ since I had it fixed last month but I always get a little nervous when the temperature outside drops and I wait to hear it rumble on and kneel down on the floor by the vents to wait for the hot air to kick on. I’m relieved every.single.time I feel it. (ugh, I need some touch up paint around the thermostat.)

5. I get glimpses of Spring.

I have a much longer list of things I don’t love about winter (driving, the bottoms of my pant legs always being wet, Henry’s footprints covering my freshly cleaned floors, etc) but today I’m looking on the bright side!
