It feels like I was just writing my fall list yesterday, and now we're already well in to winter! I've always had a time with winter. I love the snow, but it's usually hours away in the mountains, and from the dreary grey views outside my window at home, I find it far too easy to stay warm at inside on my couch, doing nothing. Then, once spring comes around, I regret being so inactive for so many months. Here's a list of things I hope will keep me out of my post-Christmas, pre-spring gloom!
Get off the couch for at least one hike or snowshoe each month. I did terribly on this over the fall - no hiking in either November or December!
Also, go for more walks. It's hard since I get home after dark, but the days are growing longer again so soon I won't have that as an excuse!
Host a soup swap.
Get a good start on my goal to read 42 books in 2016 by reading at least 3 books a month.
Buy a new houseplant to bring some green indoors.
Plan a trip. I love planning travel, whether it's a big trip or a small one. Maybe this will finally be the year I convince Andy to go here?
Knit a new hat for Andy. The one I made him last year is looking pretty ragged!
Light candles, string up christmas lights, anything to bring a little more light into the long dark days to come!
