Today, as I sit here typing, my Sunday started out with a chilly run and then migrated quickly to a snowy afternoon. We were expected to get about half and inch which now looks like 3-4 inches down on the ground. I have to admit, I’m not a fan but on a Sunday, with my whole family home, it’s kind of nice. The fireplace is blazing, the trees are lit. Baking and cooking happening in the kitchen… and I even wrapped the last of my Christmas gifts. It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas.
So with the snow, comes one of my daughters that has to go out and enjoy the rarity of the snowstorm. She was quite the entrepreneur making quite a nice stash of cash shoveling people’s driveways and earning some holiday money. I’m quite impressed. As a reward, hot chocolate and it can’t be the packet version – homemade is best. It does take a bit of time but it’s so worth it for the flavor.
