Act 363

Make a snow fort!

So you’re halfway between Christmas and New Years and the kids are overtired (so are you) and getting restless. You find yourself searching for options – swimming pool, bowling, movies, anything.

We were feeling a bit like that too. So we stepped outside, grabbed a shovel and started building a snow fort. complete with stairs, furniture, lawn ornaments and a G-T snow track.

It’s amazing how much fun you can have with so little. Just some snow in a yard and a bit of enthusiasm. That’s a solution for many things when money is tight. I’m grateful I’ve benefitted from those lessons this past year. Really grateful. And a whole bunch happier too.

Act 08

Bundle Up!

Winter is sharing its wealth of snow with us. A reminder to bundle up. I keep a keen eye on my thermostat this time of year along with wool slippers at the front door, cozy blankets on the couch and warm tea at the ready.

Stay warm. But enjoy the winter and dress for the season – even if it means an extra layer while indoors which can lead to a cheaper heating bill at the end of the month.

Let is snow.
