Took this photo a little over an hour ago, before I dug my car out. I get why some people don't want winters like this, but I wouldn't have it any other way
Ha you're taking a turn to the darkside Badger!! Stay strong.

Lol, nah. I always start getting a hankering for the next season as they come to a close. Like in November I start fantasising about winter coming, and hoping for snow. In February, I start looking forward to spring and the first flowers that pop up. In August I can't wait for fall and the change of leaves and cool air. I'm a little LESS eager for summer to start then the others, though. Probably because May is already kinda summery, where as the other months feel nothing like the next season usually, except November a bit, but part of the thing with November is that after Thanksgiving I'm stoked for Christmas.

I took breaks to take a sip of homemade hot chocolate Its the winter equivalent of drinking ice cold lemonade while mowing the lawn. Very satisfying!

Hmmm, I like to do it on the stove top (which is also how I make my coffee) Its my aunt's recipe. Developed it while wintering in the Smokies.

OK, you do you! This tastes the same, without the hassle of standing there stirring it. It basically heats it and stirs it for you but you put in whatever you want for the recipe. But if you'd rather stir it, go for it!

Totally get it. Spring after a cold winter, fall after a hot summer, etc.

What do you cook it with? I use only milk, no water. No sugar either, condensed and sometimes evaporated milk. My aunt likes to add a dash of coconut.

I never use water, always use milk. I use a hot cocoa mix (Hersheys, I believe) along with the milk. Or I use cocoa, sugar, and the milk. Never water. Never. Let it be an anathema! Oh, and if I use cocoa and sugar, I add a pinch of salt. Coconut sounds good. I've added a dash of vanilla in the past and that's also good.

Anyway, with this Mr Coffee thing, you just put the milk and cocoa or mix or whatever, in the deal and it stirs it and heats it up for you, so no standing over the stove stirring a pot. I really like it but we will probably only use it a few times a year, because most evenings in our short winters, I either make hot Earl Grey tea or make coffee in the French press.
