first day of winter

1st of June today. already the first day of winter.
Even though I do complain about how cold or hot it is I like having 4 seasons. It makes you appreciate and look forward to more comfortable seasons.
And also you will always find positive things about any climate.
In winter I like the warm snuggly bed. I seem to sleep deeper and more soundly in winter. I love warm soups and stews with ginger. more creamy , well seasoned comfort food can be tolerated in this sort of climate. seeing the shiny frost in a morning sun. pressure cooked brown rice. clear crispy air. lots of reading and quiet times at home.
what do you like about this weather?

In winter....
it is time to rest, meditate and restore your energy
Food should be...
cooked longer.
promote centering and sinking quality by adding bitter and salty foods to your dishes.
warming grains like quinoa, amaranth and oats
