Friday Five: Favorite Winter Activities

Favorite Winter Activities

Hint: You're not going to find the cool healthy things like skate, ski, luge...

ONE. Knitting // I haven't been able to knit for the past 2 years because of my shoulder injury & have been so depressed about it.  I'm like a knitting vampire ... "Knitpire"?  I NEED knitting... I CRAVE knitting.  So I was thrilled when I found I could do a knit loom with my left hand.  It may not be as versatile or as pretty as needle knitting, but it gives me something to do with yarn in my hands.  And winter is the best time to do it. I love knitting blankets in winter because they do a double duty... make a beautiful gift AND keeps me warm during the cold days.

TWO.  Clean // that doesn't sound like fun.  But its necessary.  I'm so busy during Spring, Summer & especially Fall with photography that my house gets all sorts of out of control.  So 3 quarters of a year with a messy house - you better bet that it takes me all of winter to get it clean again.

THREE. Reading // Going back to that having time thing with photography, I finally get to read.  And being holed up trying to avoid the winter air as much as possible (told you there'd be no cool sport thing here) I love to curl up with a book on the couch & a blanket... preferably one I've made. 

FOUR. Cooking // & like a broken record - I'll say again, I try not to go out as much as possible, so I even enjoy trying new recipes & staying home & cooking.  I don't like turning on the oven that much in the summer, but I'll keep that baby cranking all day long in the winter.

FIVE.  Eating // let's get real. I'm holed up with knitting, books, & cooking... you better bet eating in the winter is a favorite thing. It's my own human hibernation.  Call me Grizzly Rebecca.

What do you like to do in the winter?


  1. In the winter? How about snuggling under the covers and zoning out? That's good.

  2. These are all of my favorite things! Except for the knitting, which maybe one day I will take up. But I am on board with reading while baking sugar cookies, followed by eating the sugar cookies.

  3. haha I like all of these but also snowshoeing and skiing. Anything to get me outside :)

  4. hahaha what is that gif for the cooking? made me laugh so hard.
    well i don't knit, but i love holing up with a hot cuppa and a book - best part of winter!

  5. My husband thinks I'm crazy but I have scheduled days off to stay home and clean. You have to do that seasonal deep cleaning!

  6. I like to do these things all year long....haha. I need to start reading more ( and I mean actual books..!) -M
