We are going on hour 72 of not being able to leave our house due to snow and ice. Jeff was able to get his car back into the garage yesterday but mine has been down at the bottom of our road since Wednesday. It might actually get above 32 degrees later this afternoon and maybe the snow will finally start to melt away, but no guarantees.
Thankfully I keep our pantry and freezer STOCKED. We are eating like queens and kings but might run out of milk by tomorrow. Breakfasts have been chocolate chip waffles and hashbrowns and today I made some pretty good biscuits and gravy. If there's enough milk tomorrow morning I'm going to bake coffee cake. The other day it was looking bleak and like we might never get out of here so I did place a giant Prime Pantry order. Here's hoping UPS can make their rounds safely today... we have quite a pile of delayed deliveries to receive!
As far as keeping busy, we have enough books to read to last all of winter break and we've been watching every holiday movie while I knit socks and I can make plenty thanks to my yarn buying obsession. All in all it's not a bad gig.
There's been a little bit of boredom, though, for sure. In my head I was compiling a realistic gift guide, if you have some hard to buy for people left on your list, you can find these in stores or get them in time if you have Amazon Prime. So here you go:
|Buxom Freezes Over 15 mini lip collection (on sale for $45 at Sephora)|
|Crane Travel Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier ($20 at Target)|
|Mystic Emoji Ball, $14.99 on Amazon|
|Hammond's dark Chocolate Peppermint Crunch, $6.95 at your local fancy grocery store|
|Ugg Ansley slippers, $100 with free super fast shipping at Zappos|
Okay that's all for today. Must get back to my knitting. There's a few more items I would like to add but I don't want to ruin any surprises that are currently under our tree. One week 'til Christmas!
