Joy in a Snow Day


Joy is...
...finding the fun in a snow day!
...hearing my kids squeal with delight at having a snow day.
...watching your new puppy in the freshly fallen snow.
...getting back in bed with hubby on a snow day.
...hot chocolate on a snow day after playing outside.
...curling up with a good book on a snow day.
...not being expected to be anywhere because of the snow day.
...knowing this has to be our last snow day of the year.


Snow Day. Okay, so I could complain about all the things I have to do today and now can't. Or the fact that my daughter has to go to school on Saturday now. Or how ready I am for Spring. However, I am choosing to find the joy in it.

So, your turn? What brings you joy on a snow day?

Well, this one is hard, because we don't get snow days in FL. Our schools get called because of Hurricane warnings, and they aren't much fun, because you are either evacuating or glued to the news or weather channel to track the storm..............orrrrr, it's the aftermath and you have no electricity...lol.
I'm glad you found the joy in the snow.

Thanks for your post b/c I've been bah-humbugging all morning about the snow. It really is beautiful and the kids are so excited. Joy to me is watching my kids playing in the snow.

Kellie, Yes! School on Saturday! If you are in year round, which we are, then the only day to make up snow days is on Saturdays. We only have to go half days, though. Still something is seriously wrong with having to go to school on Saturday. It's just not right.

Anita, finding joy in a hurricane would be hard to do! Hmmm sounds like some sort of life lesson to me!

I've been enjoying watching my little birdie friends enjoy their "food" I put out this morning!

My kiddies are older now so I'm enjoying my little birdies at their feeders, too!! I put out some extra yummy songbird seed this morning and they are happy little campers!

I also find the joy in watching my kiddos enjoy the snow (from the warmth of the house!). I also find joy in the unplanned jammie day. What better excuse to wear your jammies and watch movies all day?

I agree that Saturday school should be outlawed though. :(

There is just something unusual about seeing snow pictures on a blog with big, bright, yellow dandelions in the header! I love to look at your header because it screams summer to me. Wonderful post!! Joy is hearing my phone ring as the school is calling me to tell me that school is cancelled due to the snow and getting to spend an unexpected day with my kids!! Enjoy the snow.
