    • Well Neicy...you know down here we don’t have that bad weather in the winter like you all do.  So we are able to get outside a lot more and do things.  

      But when it is cold (to me...probably not to you) I like to scrapbook.  I’m about to finish painting my sunroom and get it organized and set up for my scrapbooking.  I plan on having some “crop” parties at my house where people bring their scrapbooks and some of their supplies and we all work on our scrapbooks together.  At a crop party...everyone chips in $5 for pizza...and the host supplies beverages and maybe some sweets to snack on.  Or everyone brings a dish.  Down here people will do the crop parties from like 6pm to midnight on a Friday or Saturday night.  So that is what I’m working on.  Getting my room set up to be able to do this.

      And they are called “crop” parties because most of the time people bring their photos to crop out the unnecessary parts to the photo.

    • On the “not fun” side, deep cleaning.  Especially if there’s a hard cold night, I like to clean out my fridge, so I can put things on the back porch while doing so.
      On the fun side, Facebook, genealogy, cross-stitch, watching old movies w/the family.

    • On those rare wintry days Neicy here are some of my old and new plans: read, goal-setting, work on computer skills(new), photography(new), crochet, loom knitting(new), write letters to grandchildren(new), write to penpals, gather & donate to my charities, crochet for charity, decorate my home and begin sewing again.  

      I’ll continue to do a seasonal scape for my outdoor planter. In October/November, I used real  pumpkins and in December, I’ve used blue/silver ball ornaments.

      I have some other ideas in mind too!happy

    • I’ve been thinking about this question all day and I have to say that in the winter I spend more time on the computer.  For the most part though, I do the same things year around.  

      In the winter I’m not out much on the very windiest days, but in the summer I’m not out much on the very hottest days, so I’d say I spend similar amounts of time outdoors regardless of the season.
