The "celebration" of the first snowday of this year went down all as UNplanned as the occasion itself was :)
Our neighbors allowed the neighborhood kids to slide & play in their yards - I attempted to repay one for her kindness w/ a loaf of homemade bread last night & another should receive a loaf right about lunch time today :)
w/ Cranberry Sauce & Whipped Cream for dinner...
I would not make a good food photographer!
Breakfast for dinner is a family favorite! .. .& in season we kick it up a notch by making our pancakes, french toast or waffles w/ eggnog instead of milk or water. W/ all the flavors of eggnog available now -- pumpkin, sugar cookie, gingerbread ... ooooh the possibilities :)
Other elements that contributed to the perfect storm which even included lightning, thunder & rain in the evening..... Well ***
I only had to go as far as my driveway to get my exercise
(shoveling snow is great workout!...whew!)
I only had to look out my window for some comic relief
(Cars desperately trying to maneuver w/ little success :)
Plenty of sleeping in late, snuggling under a warm blanket & reading. A round of Christmas in a cuppa for kids after playing/shoveling outdoors & I was so glad I put our gifts to the mailmen in the mailbox bc our mail lady did take a tumble yesterday ... perhaps that was a premonition I had?! Hopefully our little gift gave her a lift.
