I'm a Wisconsin native and still live there, so, yeah the cold and dark are on the way.
I like to stay busy with crafting-knitting, sewing, and trying to teach myself crochet. I collect dolls and love to restore vintage Barbie dolls. I
restyle and reroot hair, touch up paint on rubs on the faces and sew clothing for them. There's usually something on TV to watch, or a book to read
or something to do on the computer.
My 2 dogs are a lot of company, especially on the nights when hubby is working second shift. When it's colder, I don't really mind them sitting on
the couch with me (and usually all over me.) I've learned to knit with a dog under each arm on occasion.
I sleep better in the winter. It stays darker in the really early morning and it's a lot cooler at night than in summer months.
Don't know why, but I crave foods with tomato sauce and meat more in the winter than summer, so spaghetti, ravioli and lasagna taste really good.
I do know that the older I get, the sooner I get tired of the cold, snow & ice. That point comes earlier and earlier every year.
