It’s December now… the perfect time, in the words of Judge Willa Carson in Cold Justice, for
“Hot chocolate, warm soups. Heavy sweaters, cozy comforters. Blazing fires in the fireplace. Good books.”
(Too bad things don’t turn out to be quite that simple on Willa’s vacation!)
I posted the above quote on Pinterest, and while I was there, found five more ideas about how to make the most of a cold, snowy winter:
1. Have a good laugh and a good book:
2. Have a front porch hot cocoa party:
Could be a great way to get to know your neighbors if you don’t already!
3. Take a moment to be glad this isn’t you. This is in Japan in 2011. What do you think? Fun or completely scary?
4. Make ice luminaries. I know, I’m not crafty either. But it sounds simple. You fill balloons with water, freeze them, place a battery-operated tea light beneath them, and wait for it to get dark.

(I haven’t tried it. Let me know if you do, and how it goes.)
5. Simply draw a warm bath, grab a good book, and light the fire next to the tub!
HAH! If only it were that easy!

Beside a wood stove that we do not have this year. Sure going to miss it.
