Snow Day


I will admit yesterday at this time (12:30), I was just coming back inside from "skating" on the ice in my driveway and making a snowperson on my back deck.

Taking a picture of the snow!

For the first time in 10 years, I had a SNOW DAY!! A snow day is very rare for a reporter but I had one because I live 30 minutes, 20 miles and in another state from the  newspaper where I now work. It was an amazing day.

I woke up after sleeping in until 10 a.m. I made some chili using ground chicken. Then I bundled up and went outside to fulfill a promise to my son. He didn't get any snow in South Carolina. I promised him I wouldn't squander my snow day by spending it on the couch watching tv.
So I played by myself by “skating” on my frozen solid driveaway. 


My sad looking snow person!

Then I made a snowperson using objects from around the house.

The chili was good!

Once inside, I had a bowl of my chili, which turned out pretty good and a cup of homemade hot chocolate topped with gingerbread marshmallows. My best friend made the mix and gave it to me for Christmas.

While eating and drinking, I watched two episodes of Grey’s Anatomy on Lifetime. After a nap, I put away laundry and vacuumed. It wasn’t the most exciting day but it was nice.

I finished my day with an all new episode of Criminal Minds.

After coming into work a hour late today because of the roads, I am back at my desk. No matter how old we are, we need a snow day to recharge ourselves.

DAILY DOSE
1. Feeling refreshed after a SNOW DAY!!
