It snowed all day today – the first snow of the winter. I had plans to go to gymnastics, church, Trader Joe’s, Target and IKEA today, but none of it happened. I decided at 10 am that I wasn’t going to run any errands today and slowly but surely, all of our plans with other people this weekend got canceled one by one.
Jeremy had to work most of the day today (with a break for swapping in the snow tires) and Vince spent most of the day outside in the snow getting soaking wet and playing with pals – so Edda and I (the super-home-bodiest of the bunch) stayed inside and ate and baked! I baked two kinds of cakes today – used up 4.5 cups of sugar and 0.75 pounds of butter. I also did a lot of Christmas shopping online – yah internet and fuzzy slippers. Since I’ve been working from home, I think I’ve spent a total of 8 hours outside of the house in the past five days. I’m not sure that is a good long term ratio of slippers vs. outside human contact.
It was Eliana’s first experience with snow, it was very cute watching her try to catch snowflakes!
