Fun Things To Do In Winter.

IMG_0504

Morning walk on a Winter’s Day!

Winter, you make it so cold and dark outside. Really all I want to do is curl up on the couch and keep snug and warm. Whilst that is nice for a little while, I know I could be enjoying life more. I have to push myself to enjoy these Winter’s Days. This is my question: What are fun things to do in Winter?

Here are some of my ideas:
1. Cooking Adventures: Winter is a perfect time, to put the music on, put the oven on and start experimenting with new exciting dishes.

2. Reading time: What better time to snuggle in bed reading a book, or to simply curl up in an armchair with your book. I only have a heater, it would be so nice to have a
fire.

3. Go to the movies, It is warm, snug and even exciting. I love movies they are an awesome indoor activity.

4. Going out to restaurants and cafe’s, just catching up with family and friends.

5. Make a commitment, it doesn’t matter how cold or wet it is, I go out in the evenings to attend my Toastmasters club.

6. Coats I love my coats, being warm is important. I good selection of coats lets me dress for different occasions and still stay warm. It also helps me to rug up and go for a walk.

7. Sunday drives places still look pretty in Winter, and you can always stop somewhere for a warm coffee.

8. Finally winter festivals, exhibitions, and events. I check out local papers, what’s on websites like Weekend Notes, and local council calendar of events to see what is on in my area.

9. Do an online course or class and learn something new.

However I know I still like to stay tucked away inside, hibernating on my warm couch with the heater on, and the warm cup of tea in my hands. Here I am in search of fun things to do in Winter, to bring more energy and excitement into those Winter Day’s.

Escapism On The Couch!

Version 2

 

I have been coming down with those Winter Blues!

 

With hail, wind and rain I don’t want to venture outside. The best I can do is to take a peak, and admire the contrast of warm bright deep pink flowers and cold icy white hail in the garden. A peak is all I take, because I can’t wait to get back inside.

 

Winter Blues! I make the most of them, curl up on my couch and read a book.

 

Escapism on the couch!  It was a really good book, the type of book I just couldn’t put down, I just had to keep reading it, until the very end. It was called The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins, I can only describe it as a chick lit thriller full of suspension. The perfect read for a Happy Suburban Chick suffering from Winter Blues.

 

How do you escape the Winter Blues?

Wishing you all a wonderful day!
