We’re enjoying a snow day today (Wednesday). The call didn’t come until 5 AM but a snow day is a still a snow day. Then later, when I saw my work also called a snow day, I cheered. It’s rare for the boys and I to both get a snow day.
I like snow days. Today I’m taking part of the quiet early morning (my husband still went to work and the boys are sleeping, of course) to work on my I Like Thursday post. Barring another snow day (unlikely), I’ll be working a full day tomorrow.
The fresh snow (on top of the layer of ice, real reason for the snow day) makes everything look bright and beautiful again. The previous snow was getting old (in more ways than one) and starting to look dirty.
I like seeing fresh tracks in the snow. Especially little paw prints and those left by the birds. Makes me smile.
From the fresh snow this morning:
However, my favorite sight today by far…the sun! I like blue skies! Here comes the sun:
Cold or not, I’m going to stand out there for a few minutes and “recharge” later.
Fair warning: Much like a snow day schedule, this post is going to ramble about in a lazy, unorganized fashion.
New candle scent, appropriate, called: Snow day. Had to take a break from cocoa and cream after J started complaining about it. Probably related to his illness last week but nice to have a change.
Wonder how a snow day smells? I’m not sure how to describe it, kind of like a piney vanilla. No other opinions on it yet. Definitely, does not smell like food.
Speaking of Food…
Sometimes, I actually make healthy food (she shares while waiting on banana muffins thrown together from a cake mix to bake..ahem). Prepared this Easy Healthy Baked Lemon Chicken last night.
Been craving citrus like mad with the cold, cloudy weather. Served the chicken with rice and sautéed zucchini. J didn’t care for it and G went out with friends but my husband gave it his approval. And I liked it.
Isn’t this Olive Oil bottle pretty? Used the oil to saute the zucchini.
Time for second breakfast, banana muffins made from the cake mix. Hey, at least they have bananas in them. Did I mention the dire need for a grocery store trip around here?
Other Random Likes (Probably Repeats):
Books and blankets. Hooray for finding one of my favorite winter blankets! And a good, intense read. Finished it.
Cats who think they’re in charge and blanket scarves. I wear this around the house when I’m cold. The scarf, not the cat.
Well, my boys stumbled out of their room all caught up on sleep. And before noon! So, I’m signing off for a while to peddle banana muffins and pretend to be productive with household chores.
