Banish That Winter Blues

Are you still having winter blues? Or do you suffer winter blues every winter season? Well, find a sunnier frame of mind with these 3 winter-blahs busters! :).

  1. Get a sneak peak of spring. Check out a flower or a garden show and feel like you've stepped into a different season. While you're there, pick up some potted primroses to put around the house-they come in bright colors sure to match your decor.

  2. Have a beach bash. Break out your bermuda shorts, turn up the heat and invite your friends over. Decorate with shells, blast some oldies and serve summertime foods (like hot dogs, corn on the cob and watermelon..yummy!). Keep a mood festive with this Carribean blue-colored Southern skies cocktail: Mix equal parts pineapple juice, light rum, vodka and blue Curacao in a cocktail shaker with ice; shake and strain into martini glasses. Garnish with an umbrella or a pineapple skewer.

  3. Jum-start your vacation. Start planning your summer vacation now by holding a family brainstorming session to decide where to go. Visit a travel agent or request brochures. If you want to rent a house check out vacation rentals online. You'll get greater selection, and maybe even a better deal, by shopping early. Plus, it's easier to ward off doldrums when you've got something to look forward to.
