I’ve already said it…but I love winter and I love snow 🙂
We were hit this week with a pretty good amount of snow…and it has been fabulous! I think the heavens delivered us somewhere in the neighborhood of 6-8 inches overnight a couple nights back…not as much as the almost two feet that fell at my parent’s house, but enough to make a good time nonetheless! AND enough to cancel classes at the University where I work for InterVarsity. SNOW DAY!!! Woohoo!
I spent my morning cleaning, working, cleaning and working…but when the hubster came home from work we were able to go hit the slopes! It was a great evening of skiing…once the sun went down the wind died down and it was fantastic 🙂 I came home somewhere around 9 or 9:30 while he stayed a few more minutes and did a few more runs before taking his buddy home. When I got home I filled up the bathtub with some hot water and bath salts…lit a candle and grabbed a book (Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers). I felt super pampered as I soaked in the tub and took in the beginning of what is turning out to be a fantastic book! After a while in the tub I cozied up in my soft robe and kept reading, and reading, and reading. Finally, 321 pages into the book at 1:30 in the morning I decided I needed to go to bed. I kept telling myself…only 100ish more pages and I could be done…but knowing I had a bunch of work to do today was the only thing that pulled me from my cozy position on the couch with my gem of a book.
But what a glorious snow day. Felt good about myself with the cleaning/work I was able to do and the things I was able to scratch off my to-do list, a lovely couple hours of skiing and the nice snow on what is usually and icy run, a heavenly bath and a wonderful book. It doesn’t get any better than that.
What would you do to make a perfect snow day??
