Cure for the Cold Weather Blues

Monday, February 16, 2015


I have no idea in the world where you are right now, but where I am it's freezing! Living in Vermont can be very challenging in the winter. Most people think it's all about skiing and snowboarding. Well I can't do either one of those! Plus between college and work, and kids and home-life, I have no time! Yet there are still those days when it's sooooo cold out that you can't go anywhere. We get wind chills that get down to 40 below 0! So on those days what do you do? You stay in and drink hot coco! This Nutella Hot Coco recipe I found on Fabulessly Frugal is super yummy!

Another thing I do to keep myself from going stir-crazy is reading!

Lately I have been doing so much reading for school, I haven't been able to do any fun reading. I took a break and found this book laying around the house. My wife picked it up from the local library. It's a really good book! It's about all the haunted places you can visit in Vermont. I'm already making hiking plans! I highly recommend stopping at your local library and seeing if they have a book about the area where you live. The history in this book is awesome!


Of course what wouldn't complete a cold day without watching a movie...or in my case we watched 3! We started off by watching Maleficent and then we finished off the Lord of the Rings series that we had started watch last week. These days, where we are stuck inside are really my favorite. It's almost like your'e forced to relax. Which I don't mind at all! 

That's basically it, hot coco, books, or a movie. Keep it simple and relaxing. Snuggle up in a warm blanket with a warm drink. Read a book or watch a movie. It's the best remedy for cold weather!

How is the weather where you are? Cold, hot or perfect? I'd love to hear about!
