Winter Wonderland

Even though Christmas was just a couple of weeks ago, the stores are already stocking Spring clothes and bathing suits. It's freezing outside! (at least for most of the country) In fact, we've just barely started Winter. While retailers are rushing to get us to the next Season, this is the time of year that I like to retreat, slow down, and take in the simple pleasures of the colder weather.

Here are a few of the ways that I'll be celebrating Winter:

  • Light a fire, curl up with a blanket, a cup of tea, and a good book.
  • Take naps
  • Go ice skating
  • Unplug - take a break from the phone, texting, email, facebook, twitter, and tv.
  • Cook - try out new recipes as well as cozy favorites like butternut squash soup, chicken chili, and beef stew.
  • Have a movie night. Stay in and order pizza.
  • Host a hot chocolate tasting.
  • Play board games like Scattergories, Balderdash, Taboo, and Scrabble.
How will you celebrate Winter?

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
