Let me share with you one Winter “To-Do” list by Nikki McClure in Remember: A Seasonal Record:

  • Build a fire
  • Eat with friends
  • Go to the library
  • Walk at night
  • Have a sauna salon
  • Make friends with the neighbor’s cat
  • Read cookbooks
  • Eat kale
  • Sleep in
  • Barter
  • Make tamales
  • Heat it
  • Follow racoon tracks in the snow

And here is my seasonal “To-Do” List:

  • Finish a hand-quilting project
  • Snowshoe on a mountain trail
  • Curl up under a quilt with a pile of library books
  • Warm up with a bowl of Vietnamese pho

  • Feast my eyes in an art museum
  • Build a snowman
  • Drink hot chocolate with a melting marshmallow on top
  • Sleep between flannel sheets
