Cabin Fever

So, about this time of year, I really start to think I have S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder). I would rather not leave the house, it is so cold. I don't have much motivation, it is so cold. And I start to wonder if Spring will ever get here again and bring some color to this white world. In light of that, I thought maybe I would try to add one thing to my ta-da list every day to switch things up a bit. Here are some  ideas.
  • Start a project — I need to make some cards and invitations, I just found my stamps again.
  • Bake cookies or muffins, maybe a quick bread. I am not a big baker, so I think this would be good for me.
  • Curl up with a good book, or my nook and a cup of cocoa.
  • Plan what I am going to plant in the spring, and decide where and when. Start a gardening journal maybe.
  • Do something my old photos, scan and organize. .
  • Meet a friend for lunch or invite them over.
  • Experiment with a new recipe on a weekly basis.
  • Work through the DVD series of Mad Men.
  • Go through the drawer of old recipes.
  • Start organizing….one space or room at a time.
  • Take an online course.
  • Play uplifting music.
  • Start a fitness program.
  • Buy fresh colorful flowers.
  • Hang a birdfeeder and watch its visitors.
  • Invite my niece and nephews for a slumber party.
