I learned the verb winterise when I lived in the States, and I don't know how I lived without it until then.  I heard it most commonly referring to gardens and irrigation systems, but I like to use it for the interior of my home.  Winterise really describes what happens in my home around this time of the year: carpets come out of the basement, pillow colours start to change, blankets magically appear around the sofa and jackets and boots start to pile up near the coat hanging area.  The transition between summer and fall can be tricky but I like to think of it as a beautiful transition before the winter months.  Remember that with small gestures, you can also save energy on cold days.  There is nothing like being cozy.
