What a Snow Day Looks Like

Today was a snow day for my school district.  As a teacher it means a bonus day at home and for my daughter, a day of work so this day doesn't have to be made up in the future.  

It also means naps on the chaise lounge.  




It means perusing recipes until your mind boggles.  



I did manage a few chores.  A curio cabinet was cleaned along with some floors and a lot of laundry.  


I had some great conversations with my kids, slept in a bit, and enjoyed every minute I was gifted with.  

I hope your Monday was just as fantastic.

  1. Hello, snow days are great. I am sure all the teachers love them as much as the students do. I love the sweet dog resting. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day.

  5. No school here either so my wife got to catch up on things at home, now a 3 hour delay this morning
    so she is not rushing round. We had freezing rain with no sign of snow.

  6. I love a good snow day! Here in western Newfoundland, we get lots of snow but so far, not a lot of "snow days". PS - Love those little jewelled bowls in your curio cabinet.

  7. Sounds like you made great use of your extra time. That's more than I do in a week and I'm retired. (not really, I've already move the furniture around in one room today)

  9. As a kid in Minnesota I always loved snow days. But I played outside in the snow; I didn't work! And then we moved to Los Angeles. For some reason, I didn't miss snow days at all! :)

  10. I love that line in your post, "enjoyed every minute I was gifted with". That's what life is all about . . . all the minutes that turn into hours and days. Enjoying each and every one of them is a blessing that so many of us miss out on, just because we get so busy. I'm glad you had a day to do the things you enjoy and to spend quality time with your family. Life is good!
    Happy New Year!
    Connie :)

  13. Snow days are the best! Looks like you had a wonderful time and made the very best of your unexpected day off. Cute little doggy on the pretty chaise and love those local cookbooks - they have the best recipes!

  14. Your monday looks wonderful. I attended a DAR meeting. I enjoyed seeing some of the interior of your wonderful farmhouse. I have some of those neat little custard cups on your tip shelf, we use them for dipping cups. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  15. I loved snow days when I was a kid although we didn't get many! There would have to be feet of snow before they closed them in those days! We would spend all day out and about in the snow!

  16. When I was teaching, this was such a bonus! Since 1999, everyday has been a now day for me and I appreciate each one. Love the pup and chaise!

  18. You were very industrious, I think I would have put your sweet little dog on my lap and spent the day on the chaise reading!

  19. It sounds like you had a fine day at home! No children at home in this family but I do enjoy an icy day -- but only if don't have commitments that require me to go out in it. I actually enjoy going out in the snow but the ice, not so much.

  20. Glad you got an extra day off! Surprise days off are always the most productive...if I knew I was going to get a day off, I was so excited the night before I could not sleep for thinking about what I wanted to do. Therefore, I got up so tired I didn't feel like doing anything.

  21. If ever I had a Snow Day I'd want to spend it exactly the same way! So glad you enjoyed the time gift.

  22. I live on the coast in South Carolina and kids and teachers got a whole extra week of Christmas vacation from the recent ice/snow storm that happens here only once every 20 years. When I was teaching in Minnesota (where we got snow by the foot) I only ever got one snow day at the most! Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed yours.

  23. Don't get many snow days here. Used to snow here and it has to be really BAD for schools to close.
    Glad you enjoyed your day. : )

  24. Oh, I've gotta know. How did you get the cookbook from First Baptist in Opp? One of my favorite aunts lived there and I was actually born in the hospital there.

    1. When I visit my parents, who live in the panhandle of Florida, I drive on Highway 331. I have been driving through Opp for 30 years! I have stopped there a few times, along the way, and picked up this cookbook a few years ago.
