January 7 2017

Woke up to the freezing rain. Decided to make the most of a cozy indoor day and went back to bed. One boy woke me up a little later to alert that it was snowing--a LOT!

The world was white and beautiful.  Quickly dressed in double layers, persuaded UFF Dad to do the same, and took the dog out for a delightful winter wonderland walk. We took pictures, greeted neighbors out sledding and walking, watched the dog prance through it. We made it outside and back just in time before the freezing rain started.

Stayed in for the rest of the day, watching the Xmas tree outside become slowly encased in a layer of ice up to half an inch thick. We enjoyed  Uber Frugal Activities: working on a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle of Paris, watching a movie from the library's Lucky Day shelf (my son warned me "For future reference, if you see that a movie has Sacha Baron Cohen in it, you're not going to like it") knitting, reading, and baking. I made chocolate chip zucchini muffins and chocolate chip cookies, both a hit.

Splurged with a hot toddy using whiskey won at a White Elephant Solstice party. I used sugar and lemon juice which we had on hand and did not buy honey and fresh lemons.

Money spent: $0
