Nonstop Snow

It’s still coming!

The snow stopped for a few hours yesterday afternoon, but then started up again last night. We don’t have big snowflakes anymore, but it’s coming down again as I type this.

Yay for lazy + snowy weekends!

 

Nick and I went back outside yesterday after our hot chocolate lunch and played with some of the kids from across the street.

We helped build a snowman (and provided the carrot nose) and I slid down our hill on my butt a few times. I’m too chicken to get on the sled because our hill is pretty steep, but snow bibs are slick, so I was still going pretty fast!

We came back in, changed clothes, heated up leftover picadillo for dinner and watched a movie. It was a nice cozy night.

This morning, we woke up to see it snowing again! I thought it would really be done yesterday, but I’ll take it when I can get it.

Without having to get up or use an alarm clock, you’d think that we would have gotten enough sleep – but Nick and I got out of bed this morning, laid on the couch to watch some news and we both fell back asleep and took a little morning nap! I guess we were just worn out from yesterday.

Once we woke back up, we got started on breakfast.

Nick made some biscuits and bacon and I cooked some eggs for us.

We also made little apple turnovers with some puff pastry for dessert last night and had some apples that wouldn’t fit so we heated those up to have with breakfast.

I had some eggs, 1 biscuit with some of that awesome Frog Hollow Farm Apricot Conserve, 1 slice of bacon and some apples.

And lots of coffee :)

 

We’re about to brave the snow and go up to the store.

I’ve got a lot to do today!

  • Clean the house
  • 1 load of laundry
  • Get started on Christmas gifts!!!

  1. It has finally stopped snowing here. The sky is blue and water is dripping everywhere! I think we only got about five or six inches but they got 14 in the City! And two feet in Charlottesville. I have a feeling my work is going to be closed for a while. I do have to go in tomorrow though because I have to file the sales tax which is due or we will get penalized. Boo.

  2. finally snowing here, and i’m enjoying my time on the couch with ratatouille :)
