The Big Chill

You may remember we had some snow recently.


Well, this is the current weather forecast for Metro Vancouver:

Did someone say BRRRR?!

So what is one to do when faced with a big chill?

Make sure to eat a warm breakfast.

Oatmeal with banana, peanut butter, and snow white chocolate chips.


Ensure your lips stay hydrated. Preferably with a seasonal lip gloss.


Utilize natureโ€™s cooler for your hippie drinks.


Pack tasty lunches involving spinach hummus and things to dip in said hummus.


Waitโ€ฆthat has nothing to do with cold weather. But it tasted good ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cook up a homey soup or stew for dinner. Even better โ€“ get your mom to cook said stew.


Sip on copious amounts of hot tea. Bonus points if itโ€™s also seasonal and features cute critters on the box.


Stay indoors and find a good book to read โ€“ like the one you took out of the library and have renewed 3 times yet still havenโ€™t started.


Make sure to bundle up in something warm.


While youโ€™re at it, practice your self-portrait skills why dontcha?

And if all that doesnโ€™t get you toasty and warm, why not lay out a blanket on the floor in front of the fireplace?


Donโ€™t forget your stuffed toys!

How are you keeping warm this winter?

    Now I wish I’d had oatmeal for breakfast… Hmmm, might need some milk for that though right?

    I pretty much hibernate as much as possible in the winter. I just do not like the season one bit! Ugh…
