Snow Day

Snow Day
On Saturday it started snowing here and it has been snowing on and off since. We have over a foot of snow outside and freezing temperatures. We may even make it to twenty below zero tonight. Until now we haven't had much of a winter, just a few snow falls that covered the grass. And we still have chances of snow every day for the next seven days. My students that have been wishing for snow have certainly gotten it.

So, it has been an easy week for me. No work this week because school has been cancelled. One school even had on the news this morning that it was going to be closed until further notice! So, what have I been doing with all of my my free time? Honestly, I have been trying to stay busy here at home, because I am bored. Sure, I love the break from work but with the bad weather and horrible road conditions, I can't go anywhere. I live 20 miles from the nearest town. So, I'm pretty much stuck out here until the roads are safe to travel on.

Like, I said I have been trying to stay busy though. I have cleaned and organized my bedroom. I have been getting crafty with Tracy and trying to get a few more DIY projects done. We made some more hair ties using DIY instructions we have already posted on the blog. We also finished a couple of other things that we will post about soon and hopefully we will do a few more DIY projects in the next few days. I have tried a new cake recipe, that you will see soon. I read two books and ordered a few more from Amazon. We have also had family board game time the past two days and have tried to teach our mom how to play a few of the board games we love. In the evenings Tracy, our brother, and I have popped popcorn and had Grimm marathons. I love that show.

So, what's the weather like were you are? Do you have any suggestions on how I can spend my snow days stuck at home? Any DIY projects or recipes I should try?

  4. I can't imagine how exciting a snow day/snow week would be. In Southern California we only had time of school for the wildfires because the air quality was so bad.

  12. Oh man I remember the good ole days when you would wake up early just to watch the news to see if school was cancelled. Still a full week of no school could start to get boring! But it sounds like you are doing a good job of keeping yourself busy and I think it's great to have some unexpected gifted time to just take care of your own stuff :)
