Snow Day(s)

Although it rarely snows here in the south, we were blessed this week with a few days of true-ish winter*. Universities and businesses were closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, so our winter break joyfully extended another three days. I took full advantage of the time off to sleep in, wander around the snowy park, take lots of pictures, drink warm hazelnut coffee, watch multiple movies, bake savory scones, and spend much-needed time with my husband.


*I know all of you who live north of the Mason-Dixon line think this southern "snowstorm" is a bit ridiculous. Granted, it is. However, it is important to note that there are a mere ten snow plows available for the entire state, and I'm not even sure all of them work. Which amounts to all roads outside of the perimeter maintaining a constant icy layer. But I'm not complaining. I'll gladly take the three days off.

Beautiful pics. I'm also in the south and have been loving the snow days here! Certainly no complaints. We have been making banana pancakes---long slow walks with our pups and watching movies. (We also enjoyed a good game of monopoly.) Enjoy your day and stay warm!

Enjoy your snow days! Obviously Ohio has been getting a bit more snow than you guys down south, but that just means you can have more fun with the novelty of it all:)
