Today, on this second day of February, I had another snow day. Two days in February, two snow days in February. I’m sure that going back to school tomorrow is going to be tough, but, of course, I will do it.
But let’s go back to snow days. I don’t remember the last time that I had two days off in a row because of snow. Sure, I had snow days as a kid in school, but I don’t remember if I ever got two days off in a row.
As a part of enjoying life, regardless of the spot that I am in – I wanted to build a snowman yesterday. Unfortunately, after getting bundled up and heading outside, I found that the snow was too powdery for a snowman. I couldn’t get it to pack at all and so I came back inside, a little bit upset.
Today, I headed back out – on this second of two snow days and I started to build my snowman. Luckily, the ice and sleet that we got overnight made the packability of the snow much, much better. I started rolling and gather and packing up the bottom of my snowman.
I always forget how hard it is to build a snowman until I do it again, but I managed to complete it.
My mother helped me get the body onto the base since they were so big and also helped to document as I decorated it.
It was a great day. I am super happy with my snowman. And I am so glad that I got outside and did this. Even if my brothers think I’m crazy because I’m 24 and built a snowman on my snow day…what do they think snow days are for?
As I say that is me with my finished snowman. Yes, he is bigger than me. Yes, I did enjoy it.
When was the last time you built a snowman? Do you like my snowman? I hope that if you’ve had snow lately, you’ve enjoyed it some – instead of it being troublesome.
