The world as seen from my window and through my eyes

Black Snow Is Disgusting January 22, 2007

Yesterday, I was safely and warmly tucked away at home with no need to get out and about. It was really easy to stand at the window and look out on a pretty, pristine snow and appreciate a fine winter day.

This morning, it was cold and slippery outside with patches of that nasty black ice. However, what’s even worse is looking at the piles of “black snow” along the sides of the road, parking lots and sidewalks. This is the weather that causes everyone to yell about that nasty stuff getting tracked in on nice clean floors and carpets. You get one day of pretty snow and weeks of the black stuff. I think I’ll just not look out the window for awhile. Maybe I’ll look outside again when the crocuses are ready to come up! I really, really dislike winter…

I had a pretty productive weekend. I spent the day yesterday baking butterhorn rolls and oatmeal raisin cookies. Today I’m signing back up for Weight Watchers (the online version). That’s another reason to hate winter. All I feel like doing when I’m cooped up like this is cooking and eating and doing sedentary things like reading or watching movies. Must eat less and move more!

So, what do you like to do on cold snowy days at home? I need more inspiration!

    On cold snowy days at home, I like to head out into the cold, snowy day. Sledding and riding on skateboard decks with no wheels is fun no matter how old you get.

    Black snow makes SpideyMizzou unhappy…peeved even.

    I hate being stuck inside during the winter period, but I’ll say that I do enjoy being able to read a book in two sittings. Ishmael is wonderful.

  3. I love cold snowy days, as long as I don’t have to go outside. I usually crank up the oven and bake while my husband shovels snow and goes sledding. I’m trying to curb my baking for the sake of my waistline, so I spent the recent ice and snow storms wrapped in a blanket on the couch, reading cooking magazines and wishing I were baking.

    I also clean things, like closets and filing cabinets.
