    What’s your favorite indoor Cold Weather Activity?

    With all the subzero temperatures and people being home-bound; things may become a little crazy at times. Heaven forbid that there should be a power outage and you without a backup generator!

    If you’ve got plenty of food in the fridge (if NOT shame on you) and a cozy fireplace or proper heating—what’s your favorite indoor cold weather activity?

    Hi  Jacqueline4390,

    Well you have created something difficult situation by analyzing such situations. If I would be in such situation, I would like to spend more and more time in such activities which keep me warm like settle myself close to fireplace and also shift my dining activities near to that fireplace.

      Hey iskhoso ... in view of the fact that I am freezing my tootsies in the house and I live in the South; I just wondered what others do when its really cold! I'm banging away on this computer right now :-)

    Lol!  I remember when we had subzero back in January our furnace stopped working.  Luckily we had a small heater so the temp in the house got to the 50s-so the furnace probably had stopped running a few hours before.  Luckily he was able to get a hold of a person our neighbor knew and fixed the problem.  It was a plugged nozzle-which goes to show if you have an oil furnace it is best to do maintenance on it once a year before the cold starts.  Still even with the furnace fixed it took a while to get the chill out of my bones.  So I crawled into bed under warm covers with a good book.  So reading in one of my favorite activities-even if the furnace does not break as well as watching movies on my kindle and drinking tons of coffee and tea,

    Unfortunately--I tend to eat a lot more when it's cold outside. Probably because I'm busy making all those high calorie comfort foods like Mac and Cheese and lots of chocolate desserts!

      Try to eat a very nutritious meal and make it a salad with green leaf lettuce. I read that if the body gets more nutrition then you won't eat so much. I hope it helps.

    Working online on my blogs or reading my daily Bible verse in my Days of Praise booklet and meditating on that. But I have such little time because even if I am inside I have work to do all day long around the house and on the computer.

      When the weather is harsh ... it takes away our excuses for procrastination!

    Curling up with my dogs, and binge-watching some Netflix. Strangely, this is the dogs' favorite activity no matter what the thermometer says...

    Unfortunately I'm in the process of moving during this weather, which has made everything twice as long and twice as difficult. But, normally, my favorite activity would be sitting down with a hot cup of coffee/tea and watching netflix with my wife.
