Today is the December birthdays Boozy Brunch and Bar Crawl along Broadway starting at noon. But, at 19º and snow? I'm thinking a much better plan will be to stay right here in my comfy pants and tattered, pink robe drinking hot coffee, hot tea, and hot chocolate toddies.
But that's just me.
I love being housebound due to inclement weather. It rarely happens. Most of the time, when snow flies, it's on a weekday and I find myself slipping and sliding along icy sidewalks and snow-packed streets just like the rest of the 9-5 drones out to make a decent living.
So today, because I don't have to go anywhere and I've got no pressing chores to check off my list, it'll be a lazy, wrapped in blankets, reading and/or watching old movies day. I've just finished putting up chicken and dumplings in the crock pot. It's one of Lex's favorite meals and he hardly ever gets it...mostly because I'm too lazy after work to make the biscuits. Won't he be pleased when he gets out of bed and figures out what's in store later for himself?
Oh! Maybe I'll take a page from Krista and Jess and make it a popcorn ball and Hitchcock double feature day! Mmmm...popcorn and Hitchcock. Doesn't that sound like a perfectly sound way to spend a day? Although, I'm lacking in the light corn syrup department so I'll probably just stick to Owen's kettle corn...except I've got leftover pecans from Thanksgiving and I think I'll toast some of those up to throw in with the goodness.
Don't you wish you were at my house?
