Snow Day

What do you do with a snow day? Here you are with many, many inches, possibly feet of snow or perhaps sleet and freezing rain. The Weather Service has said to stay off the roads and you of course comply.

Now what do you do? Did you see this coming and bring work home with you? Is it a “free day”; an opportunity to try that new pattern you’ve been dying to start? Do you make another cup of coffee, turn on the movie channel and try to finish the project you are currently knitting? Or are you a good “Do Bee” and use this time to clean and do laundry? Is it a good time to reorganize your Tupperware or your dresser drawers?

If you have kids home, then what? I don’t have any so my experience is based on childhood.

Most winters the living room table was used for jigsaw puzzles and then we had the game closet. Growing up on a farm, chores have to be done regardless of the weather, but most Sunday afternoons my father, brother, sister and I would be at the kitchen table playing board games or cards. I knew how to play Canasta and Pinochle long before my feet could reach the floor. Who am I kidding, my feet barely reach the floor now! My point is that we did these things together, not in our own rooms, on our own devices.

Of course, if it’s just snowing, get out in it and have some fun. Just stay off the roads.

Smile, relax and knit,
