Ten on Tuesday…

…the one with all the coping.

When I went to write my ToT post there wasn’t a theme listed on the official site – my friend Carole has come up with alternatives in the past so I emailed her to see if she had any ideas.  Because Carole is way more prepared than I am, she did.  ;o)  So, this week brings you my list of:

10 Ways to Get Through the Rest of Winter (in no particular order, of course):

1.  Go spinning with friends.  The 2nd Annual Stir-Crazy Stitch and Spin is March 6 in Hudson, NY – will I see you there?

2.  Get in the frame of mind where I actually enjoy snow, cold and lack of sunshine.  It has been known to happen and with my daily 30 minutes in front of the sun-light in my office I might be able to pull it off.  Besides, doesn’t a fresh coating of snow make everything look wonderful?

3.  Get more exercise.  Just moving for 20 min a day helps raise your seratonin levels and helps you fall asleep at night.  ;o)

4.  Use my Crockpot more to make yummy comfort food – beef stew, chicken and dumplings, short ribs…yum.  It’s hard to enjoy food like that in the Summer months.

5.  Enjoy the lineup on Masterpiece Classic – Right now we’re in the midst of Emma with Northanger Abbey and Persuasion on the horizon.  It makes for a wonderful Sunday night with the wheel!

6.  Sign up for Ravelympics – I think I’m going to be in the WIP section and I’ll be working on my Twist.  I’m looking forward to getting some knitting done on my sweater!  I *need* one!

7.  Drink.  A lot.  (okay not really.  I’m not a drinker, can’t handle the alcohol, but I’ll tell you something in the strictest confidence:  Sunday night?  R and I were working on the Guest List From Hell and I was seriously contemplating the whiskey.)

8.  Try to spin down my stash so when I go nuts at NH S&W from being stuck in the house forever I won’t feel all guilty.

9.  Keep up with my fellow bloggers.  The new Chrome browser has plugins and I’m giving the Feedly plugin a go – it ties in with your Google Reader so you don’t have to import stuff, it just works and it looks pretty.  It offers up a random selection of new posts for me when I go to the dashboard which makes it easier for me to read stuff since I feel all guilty when I choose one of you guys over another one when I have five minutes to read.  ;o)

10.  Get excited about getting more new prints up in the shop – I kind of went into hibernation mode after Christmas and I need to get my butt in the sewing room so I can share all these new prints with you!  Funky flowers and bees and…and…well, you’re just going to have to wait a bit.  ;o)

Okay, there is my list…do you have one?

  1. Woot! Can’t wait to see you at the Stitch & Spin, we’re gonna have fun. It should be interesting, I know for a fact that new (more mature) faces will be attending, and I’m hoping to show everyone just how much fun this kind of event can be. Everyone should laugh so hard their face hurts at least every once in a while.

    I like your list, I would have to say I agree with many of the above.

    You’ve got a good list going…

    Mine would go something like:

    1. Lots of winter comfort foods. Love braised meat dishes, they make me as happy as a beautiful summer salad.

    2. Drink. Really true for me… the happy warmth of a big glass of red wine or some delicious spiked coffee is a favorite way to ward off the chill.

    3. Family movie night – pop in a favorite movie, pop some popcorn and snuggle with the family under a blanket on the couch.

    4. Remember that no one will hate me if I cancel plans because the weather is miserable. Much easier to enjoy the snow if I’m doing it from my cozy house.

    5. embrace my nesting urge. Winter is a great time to get work done in the house.

    6. Learn how to bake bread. Been meaning to do this for YEARS.

    7. Lots of knitting of cozy things.

    8. Lots of good books.
