Going Into Hibernation

frosted_leavesI know it’s spring for all you northerners, but down under winter is creeping up.  Frost hits regularly, the tomatoes die, and I go into hibernation mode.  This means I make several changes to my routine:

  1. I lit my first fire last night, and it definitely made things way cozier.  It helped that…
  2. I moved from the summer bedroom into the winter bedroom, which is more like a side lounge but that opens directly into the room with the fire.  Downside: No closets.  Upside: Warmth ensues.
  3. I start doing big pots of food on Sundays which keeps until Thursday or Friday.  Pumpkin soup (mmmm…), minestrone soup – heck, any kind of soup – but also ratatouille, boilups, etc.

Do you change your routine with the seasons?
