Where I live, we’re getting lots of snow. Lots and lots of snow! In fact, I just finished my first round of shoveling for the day. What’s more, I didn’t bother to take a shower this morning, because I expect to be outside shoveling or snow blowing at least two or three more times before the day is through.
Luckily, I love snow!
Snow is a great excuse to get outside, get a little exercise, fresh air and see some of my neighbors. My dog, Henry, loves it too—especially the chance to chase snowballs and make yellow snow.
What I really like about snow days, however, is the warm cozy feeling I get when I come inside. Usually, this means fixing myself a cup of hot chocolate, but today I’m going for the garlic!
And Garlic, Lots and Lots of Garlic!
Those of you who have ever had your house up for sale will understand. When potential buyers walk into your house, the scent of garlic is not one of the first… or even the last thing, you when them to notice. However, as most house hunting is done on weekends, and even less is done during snow storms, I’m taking advantage of the weather and fixing one of my favorite dishes, Garlicky Potatoes and Spaghetti Squash.
After that, I’m hunkering down in front of my computer. In between snow shoveling, I hope to get a little work done on my novel and read a few submissions that have come into the Purcell Agency.
What’s your favorite way to spend a snowy day?
