Staying Warm on a Cold Winter Day

I know there are days that it is cold outside in the morning and feels like winter, however winter does not officially begin until December 21st. I keep hearing from several sources that this will be a hard winter on every state, not just the northern states. So what does winter have in store for Georgia? Winter will be warmer and rainier than normal, with below-normal snowfall. The coldest periods will be in early January and early February. The best chances for snow will be in early January and early February. April and May will be drier than normal. Temperatures will be near normal in the south and below in the north. Summer will be slightly hotter than normal, on average, with above-normal rainfall. The hottest periods will be in early to mid-June, early August, and mid- to late August. Overall, September and October will be warmer and drier than normal. Watch for a tropical storm threat in early to mid-September. Let’s see how close they will be on any of this. With it mentioning snow, they surely cannot be talking about Sylvester. HA! So many times during the winter we try to figure out things to do inside so that we don’t have to go out in the freezing cold weather. You may be like me though, I often sit and wander what can we do? While I was looking around on the internet at the almanac I found a few good ideas. I wanted to share them with you. These are only a few but some you may really enjoy. How about make a great big breakfast. Time to step it up from the on-the-run breakfast you usually have and make some French toast, bacon, or eggs to enjoy. Or try something different, but easy, like skillet apple pancakes. Everyone usually likes breakfast. Me and my family love to eat breakfast for supper. Another task for the winter is Redecorate! How fun is that? I love to rearrange things and make what I have to look new again. Moving things around in your home can be fun and refreshing if you are into decorating. Try hanging your pictures in different places, rearranging your furniture, or dreaming up new ideas online. Sometimes even looking on line will show you how to take things you have a put a different twist on them. If you have children, they would love to rearrange and decorate their rooms too. It gives you a great time to clean out things too! How does Pajama Day sound?… Sounds like a wonderful idea to me! Just plan to stay in your PJ’s all day and enjoy the whole day. There is no need to schedule appointments, go buy groceries, etc. Just stay put and stay comfy should be the plan. Another idea is great if you have children or grandchildren. Turn your living room into a fort by using chairs and blankets to make a cozy hideout for the day. Children love making forts and playing. Here’s a good idea too… Movie and Popcorn Day. That sounds like tons of fun. There are great new movies to check out and popcorn is always a hit! So these are just a few things to do when it is too cold to go outside. You can always add so many new ideas as well. Stay warm this winter and have a blast!
