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?
