Snow Day

When you receive a phone call at 5:20 a.m. it can only mean one thing.........................


Snow days are good for lots of reasons:

1. After sleeping in, you can make a real breakfast, instead of eating a banana in your car on your way to work! AND you can make that breakfast for TWO. The husband didn't mind at all.

2. You can prepare a roast for dinner! It can cook all day and leave the house smelling delicious! And a few hours later, dinner is ready, with little effort other than peeling and cutting the potatoes!

3. You can make a Starbucks run,
because all snow days deserve a warm beverage. Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha, please! Gotta get the holiday flavors while you still can, since they'll be gone soon.

4. After the husband leaves for work, you venture out in the elements to spend some time with your family! A little peanut brittle sampling, a little niece and nephew snuggling, and a little homemade pizza with mom, dad, and sister really hit the spot on a cold snowy day.

5. Once you're back home, you bring some wood in to dry, in order to build a roaring fire! Having boots to traipse around in make getting that wood a little more bearable, not to mention fashionable!

6. You consider reading the book you've borrowed from a friend a few months ago. You've tried reading it numerous times. You don't get beyond the first page. You're resisting. Is it the whole craze surrounding it that's turned you off? You aren't sure, but the book remains closed. You're pretty sure you'll like it, like everyone says you will. So why not go for it? You still don't know. You're being difficult. Maybe you like going against the grain? Maybe you should just return the book?

7. Instead of reading, you make cookies! Now the house smells like roast and chocolate chips. Believe it or not, it's actually not a bad combination! And the cookie dough is a pretty tasty bonus.

8. You take a relaxing bubble bath and intend to read an US Weekly while doing so, but instead you get the hankering to read an actual book. And since Twilight is nearby, you grab it. Before you know it, you're on Chapter 2. You're still not hooked, but wait, what's this? Another snow day on Friday? What to do, what to do?

To Be Continued.................


  1. You WILL love it. Can't wait to see you tomorrow not at work!

  2. This was fun! I wish I'd been at YOUR house all day instead of Vomitville. Keep going on Twilight. Just keep going.

  3. This was a fun blog to read! Glad that you enjoyed your snow days so much. It sounds like there might be more before winter is over!
