Welcome to another edition of Five Things Friday! The weather forecast all week has called for some snow today. Here are some of my favorite things to do on a snow day.
1. Read a book.
Being inside all day doesn’t seem so bad when you can get lost in a good book. Give me a thick novel, a cup of tea, and a warm blanket and I’m a happy girl.
2. Movie marathon
When reading a book just won’t do, I love movie marathons on snow days. If I’m not working through my Netflix queue, I like to put on the classic movies channel and watch old black and white films. Something about Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn seem like perfect snow day companions to me.
I know this sounds crazy, but sometimes when it snows, I get the urge to clean and organize everything top to bottom. If I’m going to be stuck in the house, I may as well be productive, right?
4. Bake cookies
I love to bake, but rarely find the time outside of the holidays. I can usually scrounge up the ingredients for chocolate chip cookies (or at least find some store-bought dough in the back of my freezer). Combine with options 1 and/or 2 and you have a pretty much perfect day.
5. Make Snowmen/Snow Angels
I only remember building one snowman when I was a kid (we never seemed to get the right snow or enough of it), but I’ve made countless snow angels over the years. And I see nothing wrong with still making snow angels as an adult!
Have a great weekend!
Now it’s your turn! What’s your favorite way to spend a snow day?
