So we are 6 days into the new year, and so far I think Parker and I would sum it up in one word... cold. Really the weather outside has been just fine. I mean it's winter, so I'm not talking beach weather, but it's been a bearable winter in our neck of the woods. What's been cold is our house! We arrived home from our Christmas vacation to find our heater had stopped working on Thursday evening. We bundled up but knew we could have someone come out the next day to fix it. The good news is someone did come out, but the bad news is he didn't have the part he needed, so he would be returning Monday with the part to fix it. We got to have a weekend with no heat. Cool, literally and figuratively.
We were given a small space heater which helped keep the bedroom warm, but it was a rough few days with frozen fingers and toes! We tried to make the most of it though. Cold weather is snuggle weather, even if your own house is the source of the cold. Blankets covered the couch, and the pups thought that was the greatest thing ever. We even made a tent on the bed using a sun shade for the car. Desperate times calls for desperate measures. Also, never grow up :)
Sometimes I can't handle the cuteness from these two sister pups.
The highlight of our snuggly weekend in was smores over the fire... ahem... stovetop. Yes, we kept things very classy over here. Smores are the perfect cold weather treat, and the marshmallows roast quite well on the stovetop! You just may feel a little silly doing it. However, the deliciousness is worth it.
We are looking forward to warmer days... in the house anyway. Our heater was finally fixed yesterday, just in time for the 20s and 30s weather we are expecting this week!
What are your favorite indoor snow day activities? It technically didn't snow this past weekend, but it sure felt like it in the house!
