It's been a long time since I even wanted to defeat winter. The past few years we've had winter, but we haven't had WINTER!!! This year it's been almost nothing but winter. I tried to call 2 vendors yesterday, major vendors - Scholastic and Penworthy books - and both of them were closed due to inclement weather. Since early December we have had only 3 warm and sunny days. All the rest have required the heavy coat, gloves, mittens, or perhaps, just staying in doors all together. Quite frankly, I'm getting tired of it.
So. How do you defeat winter? Sleep it away? Work on some massive indoor project? Disappear into a book? How about planning next summer's vacation? How about wallowing among the seed catalogs?

There. That ought to have cheered you up.
