Winter Survival Guide

 The following are the things I need in order to survive Winter:

  • Cashmere
  • Fuzzy Slippers
  • Wool Socks with funky stripes
  • Turtlenecks – lots of ‘em
  • Sweater tights in varying shades of black and grey.
  • Boots – especially my Sorrels.
  • Time to shovel the driveway.
  • Hot Chocolate with whipped cream and not worrying about the calories because you just spent the afternoon shoveling/sledding/walking the dog/at the gym.
  • Soup – especially clam chowder.
  • Crock pot
  • Baking
  • Walking the dog in fresh fallen snow
  • Throwing snowballs to the dog.
  • Sliding down a hill or mountain; whether this is skiing, snowboarding, sledding, or tubing – as long as you are going downhill and there is some semblance of speed and/or thrill involved.
  • Going to the gym
  • Fire
  • Hats, gloves and scarves.
  • Layers; this way I can wear all my favourites at once.
  • Down; coats, duvet covers. Down is ‘down’right warm 
  • Flannel sheets on the bed
  • Someone to snuggle with; Spouse, child, dog, whatever/whomever strikes your fancy.
  • Movies to watch – either in the theatre or at home on the couch.
  • Fleece blankets to cuddle under.
  • Books to read.
  • Music to listen to while cleaning because it’s so cold in the house that you have to move around to warm yourself up. The bonus is that now you have a clean house!
  • Driving around with the sun on the car and the heat cranked so that you don't even need to wear your coat in the car.
Hope you can use some of these to help you endure this cold, cold, awful winter!
