Happy Friday!

from Best of Russia photography contest

It’s been SO COLD this week! I spent all of Tuesday and Wednesday working on weather stories from around Russia with video of icicles, the frozen Caspian Sea, birds dying in the Crimea and people having their frost-bitten fingers bandaged in Ukrainian hospitals.

Is it cold where you’re at? What are you doing to stay warm? Here’s my top 5 for beating the bone-chilling cold.

1) Stay indoors. Maybe read a book. Why would you go outside? Why?

2) Eat mandarin oranges and pineapple! You’ll feel better.

3) Stretch away the stress. (after hanging out with ballerina’s this week I was inspired…). Wholeliving.com has a nice anti-stress stretch tutorial.

4) If you MUST go outside, wear a scarf! (Russian babushki sometimes know what they’re talking about – bundle up!!)

5) Roast some potatoes for dinner. I’m trying this recipe for salt and vinegar potatoes tonight…

    Hah! Why go outside? Come visit us, and you’ll know why. Plus, the sun shines when it’s this cold.

  2. Phyllis, good point about the sun. It’s gorgeous when it’s this snapping cold…! Jen, beautiful frost pics!
