Remember summer? That was fun, wasn’t it? You walked your dog with only one layer of clothes on, lounged in the backyard with a San Pellegrino lemonade and ate dinner outside every single, glorious night. That was really nice. I liked it.
Fast forward to January 23. The typical high temperature is around 20 whopping degrees, all you can think about is how to stay warm inside and out and you are almost positive you have seasonal affective disorder.
I know, I know, I keep talking about the weather. I have lived in Utah my entire life; you’d think I’d be used to this. No one gets used to smog so thick you can taste it or temps in the single digits though. Ok, maybe some people get used to the cold. Let’s be honest though; those people are weird.
What do you other cold weather folks do to beat the winter blues? Warm weather friends, need not reply. Unless, of course, you would like to invite me to stay with you until May. That’s an option.
I make lots of soups to keep warm. I also splurged on some sparkling wine the other day, which backfired a little because it made me crave all sorts of summery drinks.
@dairyairhead Damn that the wine backfired. I’m sure it was all worth it. 🙂
Ski, ski, and more skiing! I hate my ski boots, though, so if you can board, do it! Or really invest in good ski boots!
I do ski, Heather, but it’s not my all time fave thing to do. I would give up skiing for the rest of my life if it meant warm temperatures year-round.
P.S. It also gets you out of the the smog layer (it just really sucks when you can see the layer driving back down the canyon!)
