    The sun is shining during our little break from snow, but we’re expecting 1 to 3 inches tomorrow along with below-0 temps. After this month, my family has come up with many fun things for snowy/cold days.

    1. Snuggling up on the couch to read
    2. Catching up on all the laundry (That’s mine, at least.)
    3. Sipping a hot drink
    4. Cooking a dinner that may take a little more effort and time
    5. Being grateful we don’t have to travel and watching the snow fall from a warm, cozy house

    It has not stopped snowing here today and is still coming down hard. I’m guessing we are at 4 inches also.
    1. Make homemade soup and homemade bread
    2. Read and read some more with good coffee in hand
    3. Watch a movie and drink hot chocolate
    4. Bake something
    5. Light candles throughout the house

    I cannot believe you’re at 4 inches of snow! This is insanity. We got the lightest dusting last night. Pretty sure it already melted.

    Sarah’s list is great! I’m all about hibernating, reading, and drinking copious amounts of tea when snow is afoot.

    Is it ever! Instead of sunny and -25C like earlier in the week, it’s -5C and a blizzard.
    My husband has to work today, so the kids & I are spending our day
    1. Watching DVD’s (Blue’s Clues, Super Why and Wiggles).
    2. Playing basketball in the basement.
    3. Climbing into bed and pretending the blankets are a tent.
    4. Baking peanut-butter muffins (rare during the school year, since they’re not school-friendly snacks).
    5. Doing jigsaw puzzles.

    I miss the snow for this reason exactly! What a list 🙂

    It was 65 here yesterday and us Californians were complaining it was cold. It’s all relative, eh?

    My favorite thing to do is read. I started Adam McHugh’s “Introverts in the Church” at 9 a.m. this morning and have to force myself to put it down in order to do laundry. 😉 Now I have some ideas for dealing with an extremely extroverted church. Thanks for recommending Adam’s book.

    I got 4 inches here in Northeastern Ohio, then a 30 minute break and now more snow falling. It’s a perfect day for Annette’s Enchilada’s from “Bread and Wine.” I love that book as well. Keep the recommendations coming. Stay safe and warm.

    • Anne says:

      I’m so glad you’re enjoying Introverts in the Church. And I think you’ve got the right idea about those enchiladas. That’s one recipe from Bread and Wine I haven’t tried, but I’d like to. 🙂

    I second tea and soup. I have to just continue on to work as usual on snow days now that we are in Chicago, but if I have a weekend snow day it is all tea, all soup, all cookie-baking all the time. I also will usually watch an entire season of something on netflix in the background while I do everything else.

  10. Sarah Beals says:

    Aw, she’s precious, Anne. 🙂 When my oldest two were young, they would make newsletters with their friends, with poetry and pictures and stories. They’d photocopy them and pass them out to their aunts and friends. Fun times.

    Though she wrote it on a piece of paper, I love that she has enough bloggy genius to link back to a project she did previously. Keep them clicking, Sarah!

    It’s February now, my birthday, 2015. Snowing most of the day. Over 8-10″. We are taking advantage of it, it seems to melt quickly here in Missouri.
