As I take down the last of our Christmas decorations (O'k.. almost the last... the snow people are safe for a few more weeks) I always think of the long chilly weeks ahead. When I was in college, my friend Melissa and I use to beat these seeming long periods of winter activity drought with concerts in our room. We would lip sync along with some of the very best songs. Imagine the part in the movie P.S. I Love You, (where Hilary is dress in her husband's boxer shorts and few other needed costume assessories) singing her lungs out with into a kitchen utensil microphone.
As I watched Mark pack up the last of the outdoor lights,
I checked email
and what did I find?
An email from Teresa McFayden announcing the Silver Bella's Winter Ezine!!!
I went to her website and found several creative ways to beat the winter
"waiting for a snow day, couped up in the house too cold to get out,
No good movies on the Dish,
not feeling in the mood for anything
because nothing is exciting" blues.
to find out more about what I am talking about.
Please leave me a comment telling me what
YOU like to do to get through these long
Winter Weeks ~ I would love to hear your answers!
As for me I am off to make chocolate chip pancakes
(that I watched Paula Dean make yesterday)
