I live in West Texas where winters are pretty mild and summers are crazy hot. We experienced our first blizzard right before the New Year, and today is a gross frozen drizzle. Since it's been difficult to get around, we have been in hibernation.
Even though I have plenty to do with shop updates, I've been taking it pretty easy to avoid my previous burnout. Over my break I did a LOT of knitting!
Knitting is such a stress reliever and not too hard on my hands. I was determined to make a cowl this year, and I finally figured out a pattern after watching about 5 different YouTube videos. It was nice to make gifts for my friends + focus on something completely different than painting + illustration.
My next project is a hat. I haven't found a pattern yet, but I've been hunting down this one from Mollie Makes magazine. Or you can find me lurking on Ravelry.
I haven't made any reading goals for 2016, but I'm always excited if I get to read one book a month. I love being a member of the NovelTea Book Club, which helps keep me motivated. This month I'm going to read Landline by Rainbow Rowell. I check in on Goodreads from time to time, (mostly to put what page I'm on since my kid likes to pull out my bookmarks).
Of course there is always coffee + Netflix binges. When I'm not watching Charlie Brown or Glitter Force with the kiddo, I've been watching the Korean drama Kimchi Family. It mostly just makes me want Korean food + all the kimchi. >_<
What do you like to do when you are snowed in? I'd like to try some David's Tea this winter, let me know if you have any recommendations.
