Snowed in...

Last night we got anywhere between 6 to 8 inches of snow.  That's quite a lot for this area.  While I hear that the main roads are clear, I wouldn't actually know since I've been stuck in the house all day as the DOT has yet to venture into our subdivision.

You would have thought I'd done something productive with all this down time.  But no, I haven't even bothered to get out of my pajamas today!  The laundry remains undone.  The plants remain unwatered.  I didn't even bother to set my little minion to work.  Heck, I didn't even bother to venture outside to take a picture of the very pretty landscape for this post.

Lazy.  That's what today has been.

I spent a portion of it goofing off on the computer.  A little bit more time wiping the floor with Man-Child during a fierce game of Rummy - today instead of playing it safe and biding my time, I played a more daring game and it paid off; much to his dismay.  But the majority of the day was spent quietly reading, something I actually haven't being doing much of lately.  Oh sure, I read a bit each night - usually a chapter or two before turning in, but I haven't sat down and spent a long stretch just reading.

It was delightful.

Our newest neighbor came by and invited us to come over - but I was ensconced in my pj's with my book and the boys were watching football so we stayed in.  Maybe tomorrow.

For now, I'm content to sit here and compose this post while my guys discuss whatever it is they are discussing in the other room.

Tomorrow there will be plenty of time for chores while we wait for the snow plows to come dig us out.  And, most likely, more time to snuggle down with another good book.  And maybe, if I'm lucky, another successful game of Rummy.

Now?  Now, I think it's time to watch some Netflix; any suggestions?


  1. We were "snowed in" as well. Did I do anything productive? Nope I did jigsaw puzzles on line. I'm even ashamed to admit that outloud. I did make dinner in the crockpot but I was pretty sloth like.

    1. @booksandcandy jigsaw puzzles online!? This is knowledge I probably shouldn't have access to...

  2. If I can't find a movie I like on Netflix, I usually peruse the documentaries. There's almost always something of interest! I like those kinds of "lost" days once in awhile. :-)
