When the weather outside is frightful, there is so much to be done inside the house! A good snow day can allow you some time to get things done at your home. Here are a few things I love doing on snow days!
Donate a Coat
Rummage through your closet and find some old coats and other warm clothing you can donate to your local rescue mission. While we sit in our warm houses, remember those who are not as fortunate and could REALLY use that coat you haven't worn in years, especially during the harsh winters!
Nothing reminds me more of home than the smell of Mama's fresh baked cookies. A sweet treat can be fun to make together and yummy to eat when you're stuck inside. One of my favorite cookies my mom makes is linked here!
Reach Out To An Old Friend
Sometimes we become overly comfortable with old friends and might not put as much effort into keeping up with them because you don't have to talk every day to still feel like best friends. It's always comforting to get a call or text from a best friend and just have time to catch up. Make sure you don't let them slip through the cracks of a busy life.
Wash All Your Linens
There never seems to be enough spare time to wash the bed skirt, the curtains, or the shower curtain. Snow days are perfect to get all those fresh and clean!
Love on Your Grandparents
If you're lucky enough to still have grandparents in your life, make some time to give them a call and send them a card. While this may seem like a simple task to you it means the world to them to hear from you. And my word, do my grandmothers love to open cards from the mail! Send them some joy!
Make Snow Cream!
A southern classic you must make snow cream. The recipe I use is below, just mix all these ingredients together in a large bowl a viola!
- 8 cups of snow!
- 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Eat it All! (Snow day calories don't count)
