Winter Wonderland

As you can probably tell from the pictures above, I had a snow day today!! I got the call at about 5:30 this morning. I had to try to keep my excitement to a minimum, because when I have a snow day, Luke has to go into work 2 hours early to plow. Once Luke had left, I ran to the bedroom, jumped back in bed, and promptly fell asleep...until 10:00. Which means I slept for about 11 hours last night. Wow, apparently I needed it! That's almost double my normal amount of sleep, so I must need to go to bed earlier!

I've spent the day inside, only venturing out once or twice to enjoy the beauty of the snow. I really wish I could have gone out and done something to enjoy it! Like build a snow man, go sled riding, or 4-wheeling. I don't think you're ever too old for these things ;-)

I'm actually super surprised that I'm not completely sick of this weather yet. Usually by this time in January I'm ready to pack up my possessions and move to Florida. But I'm actually not feeling that way yet this year! I'm loving the snow and the beauty it brings. I'm enjoying being somewhat snowed in right now. It's relaxing! It's a lot easier to love it when I'm on the inside looking out. And I've decided that the main thing I hate about winter is scraping the layers of snow and ice off of my car, and then driving in hazardous conditions. Since I didn't have to do any of that today, It's easy to like winter a little bit more ;-)

I hope you all can stay warm, wherever you are!


  1. Ooh, that is beautiful! I wish I had me some snow...but only for one day! Then back to the FL weather!
