…the one with all the coping.
(Maybelle’s Whorl ^)
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?
