There is a winter storm hitting the mid to north East Coast this weekend. Where I live, we don't expect to get too much snow compared to other states, we're expecting 2-6 inches but I do love when a snow storm is coming. I love the first day of a significant snowfall. It's so peaceful, quiet, and pure. It is also a good excuse to stay inside all day and not feel guilty about it. What do I like to do during a snow fall?
Start the day with my favorite breakfast - Oatmeal! Most mornings I have it with coffee but something about snow makes me want a Chai. If you're looking for some really good tea with global inspired ingredients, check out my review for Joyful Hearts Culturally Inspired Beverages.
If you're smart, you're already stocked up with food and the necessities. By "necessities" I mean cake, coffee, chocolate, some chips, wings and I guess some fruit so you don't feel too guilty.
Blankets! Of course you need a blanket, how else are going to curl up on the couch with a book? This blanket was given to me as a gift from a coworker when I was working at Newsweek. This blanket has been with me many years, it's starting to fall apart a little but I don't care, it's sooooo warm and cozy.
I'm currently reading Yes Please by Amy Poehler. I've been curious about this book and a lot of people who I respect and admire have read and raved about it so it was time to check it out for myself. So far I'm enjoying it. You can still curl with an actual book too, I still love books. Actually, I can't read my Kindle too close to bedtime because it screws up my sleep so I keep a physical book on my bed stand. Reading helps me fall asleep.
My Roku gets a lot of use on a Snow Day. There is always something to watch between the WWE Network, Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, it is amazing how much the the time will fly by. I love to watch documentaries. I already watched Making A Murderer, I'm looking to find the next program I can binge on. Got any suggestions?
Of course there's just admiring the snow coming down. I took this picture during last year's big snow storm looking out to our patio. It's fun to look for little animal prints in the snow.
I can't watch local programming during a snow storm because all the channels will have constant, non-stop news coverage acting like it's the end of the freakin' world. So books, Roku, catching up with blogs, brain storming blog post ideas, stuffing my face while wearing my pajamas is how I love to spend my snow days.
What kind of things do you like to do when you're snowed in?
