You’ve heard of the dog days of summer…to me, this time of year is the worst! No holidays, lots of long gray days and recently, almost constant ice, slush and snow. (Although, I do enjoy a soft, several inches snowfall which we may get on Friday!)
When it’s chilly and dark, It’s easy to spend all your freetime inside, under the blanket on the sofa watching Netflix and ordering in. But if you are itching to get out and try something new…I’ve listed a few suggestions in this blog. Invite some friends to meet up and try something different! Explore someplace in Brookside and Waldo you’ve never been before and treat yo’ self to kick off the winter blahs!
