Snowbound by choice

The "official" snowfall tally so far is 2.5", with more on the way. The main roads are plowed, but there's blowing and drifting to keep things interesting. I called work and told them I could make it if needed, but maybe it was better to keep the tip pool small. They said fine, so I am slackin' off until job 2.

So, I will jump back in to the TT fray wih this little bit of nonsense...

Thirteen Things to do (or not do) on a snow day

1. Sleep in (after checking the radio for school cancellations, etc.)
2. Stay in Jammies as long as possible.
3. Think about giving the dogs a bath, then realize they're just gonna get wet and dirty again next time they go out in the snow.
4. Brush the dogs instead.
5. Trim nails and clean ears while you're at it.
6. Watch the netflix you ordered.
7. Cook up a big ol...(insert your favorite here, pot o chili, cake, batch o' brownies, hotdish...)
8. Eat most of it yourself because the kids have all abandoned to go build snowforts (that's the good thing about March snow, usually warm enough to go enjoy it)
9. Catch up on laundry
10. Wait for the plow to go by, then dig out the car.
11. Make homemade hot cocoa
12. Work on cleaning out the junk (room, drawer, basement, heated garage...)
13. Plant rump firmly on chair and surf away the day.

Number thirteen is starting to pan out...

I'd agree with everything that doesn't imply work (like laundry). Hope you enjoy your time off and whatever you decide to cook!

Happy TT!

If the kids don't have school, why should you have to work around the house, right? Hopefully it's real snow and not ice which could cause power failure and loss of internet connectivity. That would be tragic!

I'm in central Florida, and we've been having chamber of commerce weather the past few days. Highs in the low 80s with a nice cool breeze and incredibly colorful sunrises and sunsets. It's hard to believe folks are still having snow and cold temperatures.

March is usually the second snowiest month hereabouts. It's usually short-lived due to the warming temps, and heavy and wet for the same reasons.

Ewwww... laundry's a dirty dirty word... especially when all the kiddos are outside creating so much more playing. March is good for snow forts, and braving the cold long enough to go out and get some sun on your face.

Ya gotta like a woman who has full control of her senses. Happy day to you. And BTW close the door up there. We've had enough north wind.

Great list! I love to watch movies, so that would be on the top of my list. :o)

Thanks for paying me a visit. Hope you have a blessed Thursday!

We are having at least 2 snow days in a row, and I intend to spend tomorrows the same as todays, surfing the net! (but my body says I'll be in bed with the flu)
