10 On Tuesday


This weeks 10 on Tuesday is something we can all relate to.  And I'm sure we can all benefit from.  "10 Ways to Beat the Winter Blahs."

1.  Go to the movies.  I rarely go to the movies during the summer because I like to spent that time outside in the fresh air.  Winter is a great time to catch up on all of that.

2.  Knit.  Nothing inspires the wearing of wool like a frosty 20 degree day.

3.  Spin.  For the same reason as #2.

4.  Plan a vacation.  Especially to someplace warm.

5.  Indulge in a little retail therapy.  I really like online shopping because I can stay by the fire and keep warm while I'm doing it.

6.  Plan the Sheep and Wool Festivals.  I already have them written on the calendar and started planning which ones I will be attending.

7.  Go for a walk.  When the weather gets tolerable (meaning frostbite is not an option) get out there and take a nice walk.  The fresh air is invigorating.

8.  Take some winter pictures while you are on that walk.  The scenery at this time of year can be beautiful.

9.  Make some tropical drinks.  Nothing says "beach day" like a pina colada.

10.  Enjoy the cozy indoor time.  In a few months we will be complaining about how hot it is!

Ree & I just came in from a nice walk. The fresh air felt so good. Sheep & Wool Festivals....I'm going to some this year! My husband told me he'd take me to Reinbeck this year too (!!!). If you get a chance would you be able to e-mail some dates of ones that are closer to us?

I had to chuckle at #10 because it is too true!

:-) I'm a margarita girl myself, but still, tropical drinks are the best! and re: #10, you are SO right. I had grocery shopping to do this afternoon and actually had to think about which store to visit first and keeping my milk cold. it was (only?!) 70 degrees!!

where do you go for Sheep and Wool? Not sure where you are from. We've gone to one in OH, PA and Hemlock Lake in NY. Hemlock Lake was probably our favorite and I plan on returning. some year Reinbeck..
was talking with one of my yarn-tripping friends about summer vaca just an hour ago. I have mine book at Lake Michigan, but she's still looking at options in Maine... something to dream you away from bad days... Lovely knits you have.
