I'm not a cold-weather person. I like snow on Christmas, but that's about it. Before our daughters were born, Hubby and I lived in a house with a gas fireplace. On cold days I liked to turn the fire on and curl up with a good book. We live in a house now with no fireplace and, quite frankly, no time to curl up with a book.
Thank goodness it's finally warming up. We don't go out much in the winter. When it snows, it's just too frigid here to play outside. But now it's time to get out of the house.
Yesterday we spent the afternoon drawing on the sidewalk with chalk. It's one of the messiest activities, but so much fun. The girls wanted me to draw a Hopscotch board for them, then spent a long time hopping around. They don't have the hang of, but it's their game, so it's their rules. Then we took a walk around the block to burn off more energy.
During the winter months, we tend to be sedentary. Now that it's warming up, we're looking for ways to get active again. We just bought a zoo membership and plan to take advantage of it. An hour or two here and there should be just what we need to get out of the house and have a good day.
