Let’s be honest - everyone is hoping for it – not just a little, make-it-pretty snow; but rather we are all hoping for so much snow tomorrow that everything is shut down, that nothing is moving, that we can all either stay home by the fire, if that is your thing, or get out and play in heaps and piles of white stuff- make snow angels, snow forts, snow sculptures, go sledding, snowshoeing, skiing… the list is endless (tomorrow or maybe even tonight I’ll stick up here my personal Winter Fun List).
Whatever you do outside on a winter’s day, it will get your blood flowing, it will make for rosy cheeks and, there’s something about outdoor fun that makes hot chocolate taste much much yummier.
(Oh and don't forget to share your winter fun photos with the hashtag #fundyflakes !)
So, in the spirit of snagging you all some fun outdoor winter time, here are some ways to make sure tomorrow is a snow day.
And of course, there is a prayer (written by Tara Lazar)
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for snow twelve inches deep.
Should it melt before I wake,
I pray school’s cancelled by mistake!
(I should do another post I suppose on how to ensure our grandchildren have snow days – that’s a tougher one… )
