Is it Winter yet?

Doesn't this look good right now?


I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough 90 degree weather to last me for the rest of the year!  I have decided to focus my energy on cool things- anything that will take my mind off this unbearable heat!  There are lots of options to get you in the winter mindset. 

You could learn about ice cream by making some at home, watching Rick Sebak’s classic video An Ice Cream Show, or learning the history of ice cream

Another way to cool off is to watch a good movie that has lots of snow, ice and cold temperatures.  Some good ones are Fargo, Whiteout, and Winter’s Bone

A last way to cool off your mind is to curl up with a good book that has a winter setting.  Maybe you can imagine that is is a cold winter night and you are curled up by the fire with a glass of hot chocolate and a book.  Some great books for this are John Smelcer’s The Trap, Laurie Halse Anderson’s Forge, and Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver.

I hope some of these suggestions can help you cool off.  If not, my best advice is find a friend who has a pool!
