When there is a big snow headed our way, a lot of things happen. Most people go out and buy milk, white bread, and eggs. I do not know why, but I assure you it happens. We make sure our winter gear is ready to go. Shovels get dusted off and those with snow blowers fire them up to make sure they’re in good working order. We fill up gas tanks on our cars and if we have to travel we make sure our emergency bags are properly packed and in the trunk.
And then we wait.
While we waited, I prepped and worked on a gift. I won’t divulge any information until after the holiday, but I will share a single photo of it.
Sunday morning we awoke to four or 5 inches of fresh snow. We had a quiet morning while we waited for the plows to get out and clear the roads. I worked on my brioche project a bit…
It’s enormous and I’ve convinced myself to abandon the actual sizing and just go until I’m out of the main color. I think I’ve got a couple repeats left to go. This one has been so long in the making that I absolutely cannot wait to finish.
And of course, because we are who we are, when afternoon rolled around and we headed outside.
Someone wound up a little off trail…
And my boy found…
We rounded out the afternoon by letting the kiddos sled at our local sledding hill for a while with the mister and I chatted in the warm car. We came home to hot cocoa and had a little pizza party. What a fantastic winter wonderland-y day!
We don’t have more snow on the immediate horizon, but we do have a very cold snap headed our way.
