Friday Five RevGalBlogPals

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?

You have my sympathies. It's going to be 60 today here and sunny. I'm going for a bike ride. I once lived in Cleveland Ohio and then in southern Michigan. So, I know about cabin fever. My cure: cross country skiing. I was so much happier when I discovered cross country skiing. I'm not good at it: I fall all the time. Just strap on the skis and go. Just do something to get outside. Take a walk. If the sun is shining, spend a little time outside, no matter what. If the sun isn't shining, it's not as much fun, but get outside. I was also much happier when I discovered long underwear.

Spring will come, I promise you!

You are right...silk long underware is a wonderful...lightweight and oh so warm.

I *love* my silk underwear. This is my fourth winter in Wyoming, and I've wanted to learn to cross-country ski ever since I've been here. You're inspiring me that this year should be the year!

Snowshoeing is a good alternative for those of us too uncoordinated to handle skis.;-)

Long underwear! You are the only one who has mentioned that one!
:-) I can't cross country ski because of some disability issues, but man oh man, I love the idea of swishing through the trees. I do need to make myself go outside more. Minus 30 wind chills forecast for tomorrow though--ugh!

From one Southerner to another: this was tough, wasn't it?
