A RevGals’ Cabin Fever Friday Five

Singing Owl has been having a time of it…her daughter’s car wouldn’t start, so she had to drive her to work. Which got her to thinking…
Here in snow country we are settled in to what is a very long stretch of potentially boring days. The holidays are over. It is a very long time till we will get outside on a regular basis. The snow that seemed so beautiful at first is now dirty and the snow banks are piling up. Our vehicles are all the same shade of brownish grey, but if we go to the car wash our doors will freeze shut. People get grumpy. Of course, not everyone lives in a cold climate, but even in warmer places the days till springtime can get long. Help! Please give us five suggestions for combating cabin fever and staying cheerful in our monochromatic world?

1. We like to put a fire in the fireplace in the evenings.

2. I cook more comfort food in the crock-pot in the winter. And on my day off each week, I usually make homemade soup and serve it with crusty french bread.

3. It helps me when I have a trip to which I can look forward. We booked a quick trip to Florida to watch our sons march at Disney World. And of course, we’ve got the RevGals BE 2.0 coming in April.

4. I keep the candles in the windows until Spring – there’s just something about driving home down our unlit street and seeing the light glowing in each window!

5. And yes, I snuggle up with the Captain!

    Love the thought of seeing those candles. A warming comforting sight.

    Mmmm, soup and bread! And the candles — if only our dog were not so fond of looking out the window!

    There seems to be a lot of snuggling going on around the ring!

    I heart my crock-pot, too. Stews and soups, pot roast..that’s what gets us thru the winter!
