The Friday Five

Blizzard #1 of 2010 - 02.06.10

Winter has arrived with a vengeance here in MN. Snow, howling winds, plummeting wind chills. Time to hunker down and ride out the storms. :)

So, this week's Friday Five is:

Five things we do when it storms outside:

1. Hot Chocolate. Nothing better after shoveling and snow-blowing than a hot cup of chocolate. 

2. Turn on the fireplace. We have a gas fireplace, and when the temps plunge, I love to fire it up.

3. Movies and TV on DVD. We're in the midst of a LEVERAGE marathon around here. My daughter has never seen the shows, so we're watching them together.

4. Baking. Candy cane cookies and peanut brittle are on the slate this weekend.

5. Books! Snuggle down with a good book.

What do you do when the weather outside is frightful?


  1. We have a wood-burning fireplace in the family room, and have it on many nights, especially on the wild and wintry ones. (It's a good back-up source of heat in case the power goes out.) Reading is our #1 evening pursuit. A game of some kind is another nice way to spend an evening--Cribbage or Blokus with my hubby, or a card game if the rest of the family are around.

  2. Tea, chocolate, movies, Facebook, Blogger, and IM. And somewhere in between, a nap

  3. Baking and books sounds like it for us too.

    Merry Christmas!

  4. Books! Always books. Really don't enjoy getting out in the snow--my poor deprived children!

  5. I curl up in front of our pellet stove in my big comfy armchair. Aah!
