No, I'm not talking about skiing or skating or ice fishing [what the ?? who does that?]. I like my winter activities to take place in a comfortable climate. This means indoors, where the temperature will not descend into the single or NEGATIVE digits. What shall we do indoors?
Watch t.v. There are a ton of new episodes of your favorite shows coming out this month. Why not do yourself a favor and instead of spending time digging your car out from under a ridiculous number of inches of snow to go to a movie theater that is just chock full of annoying people breathing their disgusting germs all over you, just sit back with a bowl of popcorn and enjoy mindless entertainment. There is a far less risk of a heart attack watching t.v. than there is shoveling snow. Just ask the CDC.
Read. Nothing weighty or intelligent. I am a firm believer that the cold winter months are depressing enough without having to wade through someone else's misery. Leave that for the fall and spring, when it's still nice enough to go outside and enjoy life after reading about the horrors that people visit upon each other. I'm talking about the literary equivalent of a soap opera. It'll do you good.
Eat. The best part of winter? SOUPS. Yummy, yummy, delicious soups. Soups that are thick and hearty and if you're feeling up to it, soups you can make! It's like crafting or scrapbooking, except instead of a pile of pictures nobody wants to look at, you've got a big bowl of creamy goodness that's going to warm you inside and out.
