How to Keep Busy in a Snow Storm
We ventured into the mountains this past week and were cabin bound for 4 days while 10+ feet of snow accumulated. It was kind of thrilling and kind of scary (especially when our electricity went out).
The sun is peaking out now and the trees are covered with fluffy white pillows. It's dazzling.
Here are 5 things I did to keep busy during the storm:
1. Went down into the basement studio and tried to throw pots out of freezing clay with frigid water. I guess I am too much of a fair weather potter. I only lasted down there for about an hour.
2. Shoveled snow. Actually this proved to be quite fun as the snow was light as a feather but kept falling so I'd shovel and think I was making great progress and turn around and it would be covered up again.
3. Read a good book.
4. Knit a scarf.
5. Cooked, ate, drank, went hot tubbing and told stories with John, and friends Jack and Sharon.
