What does one do on a snow day?

div style="text-align: center;"We do not get a ton of snow where we live so the first thing I do is take some pictures to document it.  I probably share that documentation on Facebook for those who will never believe me without proof.  Hahaha/divdiv style="text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-zBIgcHltqQ/VMFYO6tugI/AAAAAAAALtQ/6LocV73gEBc/s1600/20150122125606.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="640" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-zBIgcHltqQ/VMFYO6tugI/AAAAAAAALtQ/6LocV73gEBc/s1600/20150122125606.jpg" width="480" //a/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"We are literally living in a Winter Wonderland today.  It has been coming down since about 6:00am... without stopping.  The kids are all getting out of school within the next hour or so and Dan is making his way home.  He is picking kids up as he makes his way here.  /divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"So, what does one do in this weather?  /divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"Maybe a bit of laundry to start the day./divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"I did make a run to deliver some food to a friend early this morning.  People here drive crazy in this weather.  It does not help that visibility is poor today but when you try to give them a wide berth and they are still ugly and try to push you off the road... well, what is a person suppose to do?  He did not kill me but one guy tried to freak me out.  I stayed the course and out of his way and hopefully, he did not kill someone else in his attempt to be a narcissistic road hog./divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"I came home to snap some photos and start a fire but as the snow has piled up higher and higher I have been randomly snapping more photos./divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"I have been doing a ba href="http://www.plantoeat.com/welcomefrom/inspiredtoaction"Plan To Eat /a/bvideoba href="http://inspiredtoaction.com/2013/01/meal-planning-boot-camp-overview/" tutorial/a/b with Kat Lee over at ba href="http://inspiredtoaction.com/"Inspiredtoaction.com/a /bthis week.  She has had a new session every day to teach us how to use the Plan To Eat system.  It has been very informative./divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"I have been spending time this week setting my new account up and plugging in recipes and menus and it has already been a huge help in making my week smoother.  If you want to be able to use your own recipes but still benefit from an online planner and shopping list then I highly recommend this system.  I have tried other systems but they send me THEIR menus and I never use all they send me because I am constantly substituting my own menus and recipes instead.  This lets me try new things but still use my old standby recipes and favorites in an organized convenient fashion.  There is even a button you can place in your bookmark bar at the top of your page and save new things you find as you roam around the internet, too.  It is an amazing system and very affordable!
