Top Ten Tuesday - Snow Day

Top Ten {Tuesday}
We got hit with a winter storm today here in Georgia. The whole town virtually shut down. All the schools, government, malls, and pretty much every other business was shut down today and looks like will be tomorrow, too.

So since I was snowed in, here are ten things I got done today:

1. Finished my Christmas scrap book page for this year.
Each year, I make one page out of a scrap book and make a little pocket on the page. In the pocket, I put all the cards I got that year. Since most all of the cards I get are photo cards, I like being able to go back through them and see how everyone's changed over the years.

2. Folded and put away laundry.
Ugh...I HATE doing that.

3. Finished watching the movies I had rented.
When the predictions came about the snow coming in, I stocked up on some movies. I wasn't too impressed with any of them.

4. Made eggplant parmesan.
The actual recipe I used was given to me by a friend, but here's one that's very similar from Once a Month Mom.

5. Made snow cream for the first time.
I used this recipe from Family Fun. I'm thinking it would probably be better with whole milk or heavy cream.

6. Did a little decorating.
I bought these little wall art flowers for my college roommates for christmas. I also got myself one so that when I saw it, it would bring them to mind. I miss them so much!

7. Did some reading.
One of my friends at work lent me "A Bend In the Road" by Nicholas Sparks. I'm only on chapter 4 but I'm liking it so far!

8. Did a little home improvement.
I took advantage of Ikea's winter clearance sale. I have one of these little baggie holders in my kitchen and love it. So I got one for my bathroom because I use Target bags for my trash can in my bathroom. They're the perfect size!

9. Played in the snow...by myself.

10. ...and finally I wrote this post :)

Looks like you enjoyed the snow day! I hope you really didn't have to play all by yourself!

Oh and props to you because I haven't blogged in FOREVER and not even yesterday being home all day motivated me :)

WOW! You were productive. I wasn't that productive. But, I did play in the snow A LOT. If you were a bit closer, I'd say come on over, but I don't think you can get in my subdivision yet, much less ALL THE WAY back to my house.

I like your Christmas scrapbooking idea. I had been cutting out the pictures and putting them on the page - takes several pages of course. However, the number of pictures I get now is HUGE! May have to adopt your idea.

Now, what are you going to do today?

You are so fun, Stace! I need to do my scrapbook, too. I totally forgot about it this year!!

YAY for a snow day!!!!!!! :)

Kat said...

That is SO funny! I was very productive as well. I guess that is what happens when you have a snow day by yourself.... My house is now much cleaner. Yea!

Staci, I like your scrapbook idea! :) And all that snow looks like a blast.
