It’s a snow day!
Which doesn’t really mean much in Seattle, except that everyone gets really excited about the three snowflakes that land in the greater King County area. It’s not sticking, the roads are all clear, and I sill have to go to work this afternoon (unless the weather takes a rather dramatic turn later). I couldn’t even get a good picture of the snow, it’s so light. But I’m still going to enjoy it.
It’s been so long since we had any real snow around here. I had a real snow day four or so years ago, when I still had an office job. They closed down the whole campus and made us go “work from home” for two days. We barely had to do any work, and we still got paid. It was great! There was actually a few inches’ on the ground that time. Since then, we’ve had sprinkles of snow here and there, just like today. A little pretty snow in the air, but no accumulation.
But, today, for my snow day, I’m going to enjoy it. I’ve got Christmas carols playing, and my tree is all lit up. I had hot cocoa with my breakfast, and I have the first batch of Christmas cookies in the oven (meringues, so they’ll be a disaster in this weather, but I’m trying anyway!). Ollie’s got the right idea, he’s been napping by the window all morning.I think I’m going to take the rest of the morning to work on my one remaining (unending) Christmas knitting project (I’ve only got a week or so left before I need to get gifts in the mail!), and watch a movie. That seems like a good thing to do on a snow day.
What’s your go-to snow day activity? What’s your go-to snow day movie?
Somehow, snowy days always inspire me to bake, usually cookies. We haven’t gotten our first snow yet here in Northern VA, not even flurries; we’re hoping for snow this week.
Hope you have a lovely snow day! I’m in southern California til Dec 14, so sadly no hope of snow in my immediate future!
