Hibernation

So Andrew is at a Boy Scout movie weekend campout. Since the temperature is hovering slightly above and below zero, they’re not really camping–they’re sleeping in a lodge. It’s really a big slumber party with lots of boy movies, but since they’re boys, they can’t call it that. They’re camping. He’s due back sometime today.

Yesterday, Miss B and I hibernated. We got out the big fuzzy blanket and snuggled on the bed. I read an entire book. In one day! I haven’t done that in ages. We made brownies. We did venture out in the morning for ballet, but that’s all we did. Serious hibernation.

Today, I’ll have to do the laundry, at the very least, but it’s cold out with flurries in the forecast, and really, it looks like another good day to hibernate.

Miss B’s words to the wise for today: “You lose, you snooze.”

Actually, that sounds like a win/win situation to me.

  1. I agree, win-win – brownies and snoozing. Bet Andrew had a blast.

    I must be a loser/winner too. Ice on all the roads here = stay home under the covers. I almost wish it wouldn’t melt.

  3. Mmmmm…. sounds lovely. Tempted to try it all winter?

  4. Sounds SO good–a book in a day AND brownies, great combo! Glad you had such a nice time, and I’m sure the “camping” went smashingly for all the boys. That’s kind of a pleasant outing for boys, I’d not heard of it before.
