Beating the winter blues

I’ve made my winter blues no secret on this blog. (In fact, I have an entire tag for the subject -- yikes!) Last year, I had a particularly bad case of them, and all of you came to the rescue with encouragement and suggestions for how to turn my frown upside-down.

This year, I’ve decided to stop them in their tracks.

I am decidedly a warm-weather girl, but instead of whining about the cold and – eventually – the snow and ice, I’m going to embrace it in 2010. Cold means sweaters, and I like my sweaters. It also means cuddle time, soup, roasted vegetables, and knitting. I like those things, right?

Right.

Anyway, I am now kicking off three big projects to get me through the beginning of November. I’m hopeful that they will keep the blues away.

1. Learn to bake yeast breads. I will make my first one this Friday.
2. Weed through boxes in the apartment. This will probably carry me well into December, too, and possibly the New Year. I have so much unnecessary stuff left over from childhood, college, and my pre-cohabitating days. It’s time to give or throw a lot of it away.
3. Make an advent calendar. I was raised in an irreligious household, so I’ve never had one before. I’m currently looking at patterns and ideas, and I hope to start the project next week.

What is your favorite way to welcome the cold weather?

I am looking forward to this late fall and winter. Its a time or rest and a little like a meditation. Embrace it! And knit your heart out! Do you know how to knit baby hats? everyone I know is multiplying, and I need to hat their children ;)

I found a Christmas decorating book at Hobby Lobby last year with a precious advent calendar in it. Here's a pic of audrey with it last year, it was all done with flannel and fleece and super easy and minimal sewing (yay!)

I love your plan to put a halt to the winter blues! Just let me know if you get down, and I'll come tickle your feet. ;-)~

My favorite thing about cold weather is definitely cuddling!
