Snow Day

Posted on

Although we’ve had snow for a couple of weeks now last night we had a very nice storm that really left some accumulation.  We woke up to a sunny morning and about 8-10 inches of fluffy powdery snow. Snow days for both kids, though Paul only had a delayed opening. (Surprising because his work seems to often close when the weather doesn’t really warrant it.) We had lots of fun frolicking and I couldn’t be more pleased that our tiny slope yields ample fun for the kids (and us!)

(It cracks me up when they play on the swingset in the snow.)

I made some nice cranberry-almond biscotti this morning, perfect for having with a nice cup of tea or hot chocolate.

And, in case you missed it, Tabby got a new haircut. I am quite enamored of it. I think it looks adorable on her. She looks kind of like Scout Finch!

and p.s., hate to leave all the wintery snow fun, but we are going to Disneyworld in three days!!!


About Sarah

I'm a librarian living with my lovely family in a gorgeous spot of New Jersey, where we raise chickens and love the outdoors. I try to find enough time to indulge all my hobbies-cooking, photography, gardening, sewing, and I write about it all on my book blog & personal blog.

  1. Just wanted to wish you well on your Florida trip. We went there for Christmas this year – looking for a diversion and a way to get through the first holidays without Dad. Unfortunately we stumbled across record-breaking cold temps and the place is just not equipped to handle cold weather (there is no heat in most areas, like hotel lobbies and the shops at the Magic Kingdom, where I attempted to escape the cold). Of course it hit the 70s the day after we left so I am sure you will be fine – and warm – but it can’t hurt to pack some winter stuff just to be on the safe side! Have fun!!

  2. Enjoy your vacation!

    The blog I was telling you about is She started Jan 1 2009, and decided to live life as though she was a housewife in 1955. It’s now 1957 for her – she couldn’t give it up after the first year! It’s fascinating because she looks at everything that’s going on at the time – politics, culture, art, fashion, etc.

    It made me think of you because she does a lot of the things you do – she is learning to cook, she is sewing her own clothes, she even keeps chickens! I think you would really like it.
