Curl up in bed with a good book and a warm drink. I throw in a hot water bottle to the mix if it's really cold.

". . .And things seem hard or tough"

The things that get me through the cold season.

Tea. . .lots of friggin' tea.
contemplating mysteries of existence
good books ("Chaos: The Making of a New Science" is holding my fascination at the moment)

Meditation
Planning bus conversions for when it's warmer/not raining

And if none of the above strike your fancy then
"Just remember that your standing on a planet that's evolving,
And revolving at 900 miles an hour"

by the gods I love that song...

i love to practice other things, or start something new. poi can be done inside, same with juggling and other stuff. put on some goo music, turn up the heat or get a fire going, and learn
cant beat it
its the feeling at th end of the day that u acomplished something
makes it worth it

Book : said but still
Play music : Can be done inside and feels so good when in the mood
Writting, to people or for yourself.



oh, yeah... Where was my head.
Something warm, soothing, inside activity, keeps you going, feels good...
D'you have a partner ?

As the song says, all you really need is music, sex, and cookies

Because its music sex and cookies
Cookies music and sex
Doesn't matter which order you try 'em
Cause I like 'em all the best
I've tried therapy and LSD
Been lost but now I'm found
And its music sex and cookies
That make my world go round

Twisthem488 has the right idea!

Aside from the aforementioned how 'bout
-Concerts
-bundle up to face the elements and SLED
-Dress in costume and mess with strangers
-write a zine

Winter def sucks but its always a blessing in disguise... Last year it led to me picking up toss and this year its led to me picking up CJ
