First Snow Day of the Season

In case you didn’t know, I live in Michigan- a.k.a. the most weather-bipolar state in the U.S. We received our first snow day on November 18th. I can never remember having a snow day prior to Thanksgiving before but I’m not complaining. I will complain about the terrible driving conditions that I have to put up with during winter so snow days make me happy that I don’t have to risk my life to make it to class.

I had a very productive snow day. I started off the day by finishing the book 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson (you can read my review here). I also did laundry, folded laundry, cleaned my room, researched plane tickets, hung Christmas lights in my room, and wrote some future blog posts. I wish snow days happened more often so I could get all this work done every week!

My room is finally decorated! :)

My mom works at the University that I am attending so sometimes when the weather is really bad they don’t make her go to work either. This day happened to be one of those days so we got to spend the day together. My mom spent most of her snow day working and making chili for dinner. I was happy to have her home with me!

Homemade Chili!

I was glad to have a snow day but I am worried about what the weather will be like the rest of this winter. If it’s already this bad in November, December-March is likely to be much worse. I am leaving for London in January but I am still worried about my family that will remain here in Michigan…

I hope it warms up a little bit for Thanksgiving! I’m so excited to have a couple of days to spend with my family and Brett’s family! 🙂 Thanks for reading!
