Snowy Day Activities!

Puzzles!  And lots of them!  We have really enjoyed doing these lately - something for Kevin to do while I'm cooking dinner...something to do on a lazy evening...

500 and 1,000 piece puzzles!

And soup is always a requirement on a snowy and cold winter day!

15 bean soup (which Kevin refused to eat) and chili (something he would eat!)
What are your favorite "snowed in day" activities?

Wow! Look at those puzzles! I have been saying for a least three weeks that I want to get puzzles down from storage and put some together. I always enjoving a puzzle sitting on a table during the winter. You can sit down and put lots together, or just put a piece in as you walk by. I'm on day two of no work due to snow! Your food looks delish! I made gumbo on Sunday, now I'm making veggie and beef soup for tonight. Have a great day!

Steve won't even eat chili, bc he claims to not like beans! I don't believe him 100% though, hehe!

When it is too snowy, I curl up with a book, or watch movies, or work on a quilting project! Puzzles are fun though, I used to always work on them with my grandmother!

I try to avoid snow at ALL costs. lol. When that is impossible, I usually huddle around my heater. And if I am feeling especially brave, I might venture outside. Fuzzy slippers and soup/tea are a must!

I love puzzles too. I have actually framed some to use for decorating! I love 15 bean soup. Kevin doesn't know what he is missing! You guys got a lot more snow than we did this time. I love to bake when I am snowed in and also knit. Love & blessings from NC!
