Smelly Train/Nice Bag: Winter Edition!

Awhile back, I did a couple posts using the Smelly Train/Nice Bag idea that I stole from a UK blogger. I don't remember who it was, and have lost track of the blog, so if it was you, sorry (and post your blog link).  The whole premise behind it was that if you have a negative thought, you should counteract it with a positive one.  The writer was traveling on a stinky train, but she was carrying a nice purse.  So here we go, with the winter version:

It's cold out!/I can wear cute sweaters and boots!

I don't want to shovel snow!/Now I don't need to go to the gym and lift weights!

There's not very much daylight!/You don't have to feel bad about calling it an early night with a book!

It's hard to run in the winter!/It's still better than the treadmill!

Heat is so expensive!/Now I can break out the fuzzy slippers and fleece blankets! Also, in the words of moms everywhere, "Put on a sweater."

I miss wearing my cute summer clothes!/Two words: down miniskirt. Also, jackets! (yes, I have a jacket problem. I can't stop buying them).

It's icy out!/My microspikes work great!

I can't hike!/But I can snowshoe, snowboard and cross country ski!

Winter is so long!/It really makes me appreciate summer!

What am I missing? What are your smelly train/nice bag moments lately (they don't have to be about winter)? Love winter and dislike summer? Throw some out there!

  2. Down miniskirt, LOL. Love it.

    I spent so much money in December/I had it to spend and we had so much fun with what we did.

    1. They are a thing! It probably doesn't get cold enough to wear them where you live though. Smartwool makes cute ones!

  3. I can't really think of anything....(my mind must be tired!) I was up in your neck of the woods last week visiting my son (he now lives in Frenchtown). Didn't get in any skiing but did take a couple of nice hikes near Missoula. Happy New year!

  4. Winter is soooo long/it's so much quieter in town this season and in the places we want to go.

    1. I wish that was the case here/all the tourists help support the small businesses.

    2. That's a good one.
      The town is so crowded now/many of the visitors and new residents really appreciate the natural surroundings
