Snow day, snow day, snowww daaaay!!
When my alarm went off this morning, I rolled over, asked Meeker for his iphone, and went directly to my school district’s website to check for closures. I wasn’t expecting it, just hoping, and HOORAY, all schools in the district were closed for the day! So I rolled over and went back to sleep for two hours.
There’s really no better feeling.
When I did get out of bed, I made myself some oatmeal.
½ cup oats cooked in water, almond butter, chia seeds, Love Grown granola, and…
The magic ingredient. I got this stuff from my parents for my birthday and it is gooood.
Then I spent four hours cleaning my house. I was so happy to have the time to scrub floors, put away laundry, and clean out closets. It was the perfect snowy day activity.
Then I sat down to lunch in my nice, neat casa.
Broccoli, rice, tofu and teriyaki sauce
Then I plopped down on the couch and watched Mr. Bauer do his thing for a while – a cup of tea by my side.
(Oh, and I didn’t get out of my pajamas all day. Even while I worked out in my living room.)
And for dinner – while my studly Meeker was shoveling our driveway – I whipped up a pot of chili.
I started with a salad.
Lettuce, cucumbers, celery, carrots
And then on to the chili.
(Yup, same bowl. Didn’t even rinse it out.)
To make the chili: ground turkey, black beans, pinto beans, 1 garlic clove, 2 cans tomatoes, 2 cans tomato sauce, ½ onion, green bell pepper, 2 cups water, chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes – cooked on low heat for two hours.
I think every weekend should be three days long…I feel so much more relaxed and ready to face the work week tomorrow!
Is it snowy where you are?
What’s your favorite stay-in-the-house activity?
