The Temperature on Mars and Venus

The Temperature on Mars and Venus
Self
  • Make a batch of spicy chili—Use lots of red hot peppers to heighten the heat factor. 
  • Curl up in a Snuggie (the blanket with sleeves!).  Don’t forget the fuzzy slippers—This is a great way to settle in to read one of those good books you received as a holiday present. 
  • Drink some fancy hot chocolate--Ghiradelli Chocolate Hazelnut is to die for!  Munch on some gingersnaps for an extra kick.
  • Try a new work-out routine—The latest craze is called Zumba.  It is touted as a ‘fusion of Latin and International music that creates a dynamic, exciting, and effective fitness system.”  Take a class at one of those ‘boutique’ fitness centers or pick up a DVD of this hot dance and enjoy losing those holiday pounds almost as much as you did gaining them.
  • Pretend it’s still summer—Schedule a mid-winter BBQ and watch summertime home movies!
  • Start a fire—Begin with a room full of candlelight, then build a roaring blaze in the fireplace.
  • Warm and Bubbly Bath—When all else fails, nothing chases away the chills quite like hot water.  Be sure to invite your partner to join you.
  • Massage—The reward for taking a bath together.
  • Make LoveSex with the one you love stimulates the body, the mind and spirit.  It’s the oil that keeps a relationship forever growing in love.  So go to bed early and sleep late.
  • Come on down to Sunny Florida—Imagine basking on the white sands of Cocoa Beach while ‘ooohing and ahhhhing’ at the final night time Shuttle launch that is scheduled for February 7, 2010 at 4:39 am and then watching the gorgeous sunrise over the Atlantic. It may not quite be Mars and Venus, but the Space Coast in east central Florida is always hot!
