Days like this make me wish we finally had the old farm house we want (or at least a log cabin), tucked into a little hollow somewhere, hidden away from our closest neighbors.
Someday, I want to be able to watch the flakes fall from the sky while sitting in a big, cozy chair in front of a roaring fire. A coffee (or hot chocolate) by my side, a good book, and some play time outside are all you need on days like this.
I love the quiet that a big snow brings. I always feel like I hear so much more while walking around in this frigid weather than at any other time. Birds chirping, trees creaking under the weight of the powdery snow, houses dripping with icicles.
Ah…I can dream about having an old farm house, right? :)
We let Maggie run around in the snow this afternoon and took her on a short walk down to the mailbox (to find nothing), and she is worn out. I have a feeling she’ll be sleeping the rest of the night.
After we watched this week’s episode of Burn Notice and took a short late-morning nap, Nick and I heated up the leftover pizza from last night for lunch before heading outside.
I had one slice of pizza and a HUGE salad with some ranch dressing, romaine, carrots, red onion, and garlic-almonds.
Maggie tried to have some of Nick’s pizza, but she wasn’t quick enough.
I ended lunch with a few supercharge me cookies :)
These are so addicting, but that’s okay because they’re good for you! Nick’s already requested another batch, so I have a feeling I might be baking again tonight.
I’ve got some laundry going, and we’re finally all inside and drying out from the snow.
Maggie is officially asleep again – we may have to wake her up and make her eat dinner soon!
