Wear fur lined Grumpy Old Man hats with ear flaps down.
Get a dog to warm up the end of the bed.
Wear plaid, panel lined jeans.
Tuck hand warmers in mittens.
Carry a corn sack –fill a flannel bag with field corn, microwave 2 minutes, take it to go.
Melt frozen pipes with a hair dryer (actually recommended by my brother-in-law’s plumber friend and it worked like a charm for the Carlsons!)
Embrace the season. Bundle up and play outside!
Take up ice fishing. After freezing your fanny on a frozen lake, home feels like a sauna.
Read a book –curl up under a duvet and read a good book. You’ll become so engrossed in the story, you won’t notice the weather outside.
Stoke up the fire. Warm your tootsies, melt you heart, and mellow out while flame gazing. Enjoy the show.
Wear boots! Heavy, lined, and laced up! Off you go!
Sip a hot drink –cocoa, cappuccino, apple cider, flavored tea, Glühwein, hot toddy, Irish coffee, grog, Wassail, whatever as long as it is hot, hot, hot.
Layers. Layers. Layers. Start with undies, the ultimate chill chaser Cuddle duds !
Savor a steaming hot wholesome meal. Go for those extra calories. Winter is no time to diet.
Celebrate! Set out The Red Plate and engage in the time honored custom of our ancestors. American pioneer families acknowledged when friends and loved ones deserved praise or special attention by serving them on the red plate.
