Burr, it’s cold outside and I’m not going outside unless it’s necessary. I have a free day off from work, and I don’t have to use my vacation time (grown up issues) so I’m going to enjoy every bit of it. Unless you are an extreme outdoors person, you can do so much in your home during a time like this. If you are twiddling your thumbs trying to figure out how to spend your snow/ice day, here are some ideas:
1) Make it a Movie Day.
Pop some popcorn, pour a glass of your favorite wine, and watch all of your favorite movies. When was the last time you’ve seen the unedited version of Love Jones or Love & Basketball, this is the perfect day to watch it.
2) Read a Book.
Have you read a good book lately? I personally have at least four books that I purchased from Goodwill a few months ago to read and now is a great time to do so. As a matter of fact, if you want a quick yet great read, you should check out my sorority sister Britni Danielle’s novella called Turn It Loose.
3) Chat with some old friends.
When’s the last time you talked to old so and so from years ago? This is a great time to reconnect with friends or even talk to your close friends.
4) Write it out.
This is for my fellow writers. If you are trying to find the time to write your latest masterpiece or even think about it, why not use the time that you are stuck in the house composing your latest work. I’m definitely taking advantage of it.
5) Do absolutey nothing.
We all need a day to just do nothing. Turn off your phones, tv, computers and just relax. There’s nothing wrong with it either.
Be safe out there friends!
