Friday Five-Winter's on the Way


When I was little and it snowed, I played with my cousins!
I'm the one in the middle.

Singing Owl posted this timely FF "The picture is of my back deck after the first heavy snow last winter. I am looking at the weather forecast with a sigh of resignation. You see, our glorious unseasonable stretch of sunny days is ending and rain mixed with snow is in the forecast. The weather guy actually said, "This is probably the last nice day till spring, folks..." So, I am trying to plan ahead. Help me out, please. When it is cold outside:"

1. What is your favorite movie for watching when curled up under a wooly blanket?

We haven't been renting or buying movies that much, relying on the gay station Logo to supply us with movies.

2. Likewise, what book?

The old faithful Strand, has great books at great prices and I'm always looking for a new book or 5, so call this my winter sport. I like mysteries, but not cozys, I'm just reading the "Girl Who" books, and I really like some of the spiritual books I have read about on the Revgal website. Harder to find, I like to read books that reflect my life. PS-tip! the Strand Bookstore is online!

3. What foods do you tend to cook/eat when it gets cold?

Now that we have an actual kitchen AND DISHWASHWASHER-DA-DUM!! I may find out!

4. What do you like to do if you get a "snow day" (or if you don't get snow days, what if you did)?

I have a million beads that I have bought in my travels. I may try to put them together somehow.
Did I mentionthat the State of NY does not give Snow Days. Not in my 12 years. And people with longer memories say they have NEVER gotten them and we have a very snowy state!
5. Do you like winter sports or outdoor activities, or are you more likely to be inside playing a board game? Do you have a favorite (indoors or out)?

As I said my winter sport, reading.

I need to spend less time on the computer and more time reading. I like thinking of this as a winter sport!

Haha--I love it--the Olympic team for reading...it would take place at a huge library...I actually heard someone in a movie/show actually say 'no one goes to libraries anymore, we've got the internet.' Not around here. Ours is full every time I go.

Beads...interesting. Do you make jewelry? BTW, your link at RGBP didn't work. But Blogger is being weird today, so don't know if the link is actually broken or not.

Reading is a wonderful "sport"! All your beads sound enticing; I wish I could see them. Post a finished product, ok?

BTW, your link doesn't work at RevGals.

1. I may be in NYC the end of Feb. I have been nominated to represent the Episcopal Church at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women...it's all dependent on getting funding to cover my expenses, so I may not have any options on schedule...but if I do, a meet up?

2. It's so awesome that you have the beach place - in my mind its like the best of both worlds, NYC and the beach (or I'd be happy with mountains/lake)...I have this mental image of it all and how much fun you will have when the beach place is ready!!!!!
