Usually I've lived in climates permitting some outdoor work year round, but even in the coldest weather there's always firewood to cut, split, and gather together for the following winter. Then there's what I call "barn dither"....mostly tool making and repair. I always keep a few sticks seasoning to make new handles for tools, and these can be peeled and fitted. It's a good time for indoor homestead crafts, too. For me this is confined to making, and repairing, my own sandals. And there's no end to mending and indoor house fix-its.....

Catch up on reading. So many things to learn.
Firewood. ALWAYS have firewood to process before the next storm.
Planning the spring work. Trying to get any earthworks done in the spring before the rain hits means you have to have everything lined up around here.
Livestock chores. It just takes more time dealing with livestock in the winter--checking them closer, breaking ice or hauling water, feeding them, mucking barns, etc.
Indoor/crafty work. Candles, soap, knitting, carving, whatever you like.

Things shift gears in the winter around here, but they don't stop like some in the north claim.
