Hello Winter {including Making Magic Winter Printable}

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” – Edith Sitwell

Winter Making Magic List | A Happy Adventure

Hello Friend,

Today (here in the Southern Hemisphere) we are welcoming Winter.  I have to admit, Winter is not my favourite season.  I do wonder if I’d be more into it if we lived in an area where it snowed… instead of just raining a lot and being bitterly cold.  However, to make us all a little more excited about the next three months, I wrote up a little ‘Making Magic Winter’ list for us to refer to whenever we find ourselves at a loose end.

We have the added pressure to get all the activities in our list checked off in the next six weeks, because this year that is the only Winter we will be facing as we are flying to China on the 17th of July!! I’m not sure if we’re going to get it all done, but it’ll be fun giving it a go.

If you’d like to download a pdf copy of the Winter Making Magic List, you can do so by clicking here: Winter 2013 Making Magic List

What are you most looking forward to this upcoming season?

Love always, Hana xo

    The list definitely makes winter sound more dreamy! I look forward to doing some with the kids.

      It’s so hard to make winter seem dreamy… so I’m glad the list has helped! We’ll have to compare notes as to what we get done and what we should add to next year’s list! H xo

    Oh, Hanna, I miss cold weather so much!
    After our beautiful holiday in NZ I was ready to move there. I’d take rainy and windy over stinking hot and humid any day.
    Maybe we could do a house swap!?!

      Ha – Sarah – a house swap might be a good idea!!! I was talking to my Mum on the weekend, and she said it’s 40 degrees in China already… so we may experience some of the intense heat you experience for a few months – I might complain a lot less about the cold after a summer like that!! H xo

    Love this list! We have crossed off the hot chocolate and a couple of winter walks and are working on a sewing project with our 5 year old :) Making apple cider sounds delicious – do you have a recipe!? And may I suggest adding stick bread to your list? We just posted a how to over on our website :)

      Hi Lisa – it sounds like you’ve been super-busy already!! I’m going to do a wee pinterest search for a good cider recipe. When I was in high school I did an exchange year in Missouri. I remember the first really significant impression I had of Missouri, was arriving in the home I was to spend my first few nights and smelling apple cider bubbling away on their stove top – such a warming and comforting smell – so I’m really looking forward to giving it a go recreating it! And thanks for letting me know about the stick bread – I’ll definitely have to check it out – and if we don’t get to it in the next six weeks (before leaving for China) then we’ll definitely have to add it to our Spring List! H xo

    I just love reading about moms like you “living” in other seasons. I´m looking forward to the summer, specially since we didn’t have a proper spring this year, it has been particularly rainy and cold…
    For your winter: what about trying to cook some “churros” to go with hot chocolate? Google it, it is a staple here in Madrid :)

      Oh Nuria, I’m looking forward to summer again already! I’ve had churros before – some of the markets here have vendors who sell them – but I’ve never thought of attempting them myself – we’ll definitely have to give it a go – thanks!! H xo

    Oh you leave for China next month?! How exciting! You definitely won’t be suffering from winter weather over there (we were also there in July and it was HOT). Can’t wait to hear all about it. Jill x
