Things To do When It Is Too Cold To Go Outside

We enjoyed a break in the frigid temperatures this past week. When the temperatures climbed into the + side of the thermometer Abbey and I went for a long walk around town. I felt the urge to step outside once in a while and listen for the birds and didn't even cuss the ice that is building up all over town. However, our pleasure was short lived and this morning the thermometer said -29 (before the windchill).

So, when it is that cold what is one to do?? I have made every TO DO list imaginable, from things to do for drama today, this weekend, for dress rehearsal, before the shows, after the shows, when we clean up, lists for before we leave for Arizona, things we need to take, what needs to be done at home, grocery lists, checklists for the drama project I am working on (not community related), I think I have about 25 pieces of paper all over the house with lists on them. But now what am I going to do?? Usually I enjoy a day at home with a good book and a blanket but we have had plenty of those this winter. I thought about doing a major house cleaning but its too soon, that's on my list of things to do the week before drama!! I could bake something but I still have an abundance of baking left over from Christmas and besides, we will be leaving soon and who wants to leave a freezer full of goodies?

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Come to Calgary, help your daughter move.

This may be too tall an order, but.... you could try getting your husband involved in completing some of those "to do" lists. Or, you could review your picks in the current Bailey Hockey Pool to see what the heck went wrong?
