Too Cold to Go Outside?

Zeus22010It's Ten On Tuesday and today's topic is rather appropriate for me right now... 10 Things to Do When It's Too Cold to Go Outside.

1. Knit. I think this one is a given for many of my readers.  It also kind of goes hand-in-hand with #2, 4 and 7 below. 

Sophie_129112. Cuddle with a furry friend... or four.  The Lapdogs love to cuddle up on the couch with the humans, especially when it's chilly.

3. Read. Something I need to do more often.  My Nook has been collecting dust for several months and I really need to change that.

4. Catch up on TV shows. Whether it's shows I've got on the DVR or the Food Network, I can usually find something to catch up with.

5. Teach myself how to weave. I plan to finish putting my Cricket loom together and get to doing that very soon.

6. Job hunt. Not something I recommend or wish on anyone, but it is my unfortunate situation at this time.

7. Enjoy a warm beverage.  Hot cocoa, coffee, tea... maybe even bake some cookies to go along with said beverage.

8. Cook... something delicious and hearty.  Soups and stews top that list.

9. Catch up with friends online... Facebook, AOL chat, Ravelry, Blogs...

10. Clean/Organize. It seems like I'll have some time on my hands to finally get to the unpopular task.

With the cleaning, just pick one small part of something per day, like cleaning out the bathroom vanity, or the kitchen junk drawer. That will make the rest of the cleaning easier, I promise. Plus, it won't take long, so you won't get too bummed out over cleaning. And then you can get back to the all important #2: snuggling with the Lapdogs!

Our lists are quite similar and I think everyone has had knitting as their #1 this week!

I love your list! Especially the 4 pooch part! I need to read more too...though I've got a book going now.

Love your list. #2, #3 and #10 are my faves.

I'm on a soup & stew kick right now. I just wish I had time to cook at home more.

8. According to cooking.com, this is national soup month. Their email led me to this Mexican Meatball Soup which I made over the weekend. It's delicious!


Good luck with the job hunt!
