January links

The wind makes the gutters rattle at our windows, and bites our noses when we go outside.

So usually we don’t (go outside, that is).

Economist husband was wrapped up in a blanket all weekend fighting a cold, and I was sipping tea at the office all weekend, fighting off news stories about protests in Moldova, Ukraine and Russia.

Is it cold where you’re at? Here’s a few ideas for a cold January week:

1) Make some hot roasted tomato soup with grilled cheese! Here’s a recipe I’m trying tonight:

Smitten Kitchen's Roasted Tomato Soup with Broiled Cheddar

2) Get inspired about painting and decorating! Here’s a cool site I found (via CreatureComforts) that helps you draw out color palettes based on pictures you find online:

3) If your TV is broken (like our poor TV is) entertain your husband with some funny YouTube videos like this cool one about a snowboarding crow in Ekaterinburg, Russia:

4) Read this inspiring article about telling a good story with your life.

“When I think back to some of the people in my life that really made an impact on me, they’re people that went above and beyond the call of duty to help me.” – Trent Hamm

5) Check out this cool site that allows you to play different music mixes. Like the radio only without commercials! Set the mood for a winter evening in with this music:
