Let It Snow, Let It Snow,

Let It Snow!

Today we have received our first substantial snowfall of the season. Sure it's snowed off and on since Halloween but nothing you could really measure and nothing that stuck for more than a few hours.

When I awoke this morning the sidewalks and cars were just barley white with snow. Now everything is pretty much covered and It's beginning to Look allot like Christmas keeps popping into my head every time I walk by a window.

Of course the kids have been bugging me all day to go out and play in the snow but up until a hour or so ago there wasn't a whole lot on the ground to play with. I figure if all this snow stays put overnight then maybe if the kiddo's are good we will go out and play tomorrow. Today I just want to stay in the warmth of the house.

I do wish I would have watched the evening news yesterday though so that I would have known this much snow was coming. It's the perfect kind of day to have a pot of stew simmering on the stove but I have non of the ingredients. It's also the perfect day for some warm hot chocolate, but you guessed it, I'm fresh out! Lastly this is the perfect day to read a new book but I'm fresh out. If only I would have watched the news!

What are your favorite things to do when the weather is cold and snowy?

I was jonesing for a book today too, and all I had were duds from the RNA conference. I'm desperate! Tomorrow, I buy a new book... So we got 2 or so inches up here (so far). What's the damage there?

Make a cup of cocoa and watch Mr Blarney snow blow the driveway while the kids sled ... 2 hours of peace!

I love putting on the warmest jammies I have and snugglin up and watching the snow fall, it is so peaceful.
As I am a TOTAL bookworm, People Mag is a book, right? (havent had time for any lovely books, too busy). As we speak I am signing off, going up to my room wrapping myself in my big FAT down comforter...we have a love affair and reading the latest People.
