We had a "Snow Day" today with about 6 inches of snow falling last night and most of the day today. This much snow is a rare thing in our part of central North Carolina. Big Daddy had the day off work and we too The Muffin out around 8:30 this morning. She was very grumpy today and seems to be getting some sort of respiratory-thing, so our time outside was brief. I made hot cocoa for us after our excursion outside and then we played inside, colored pictures, hung out and had a family nap together on our bed. The nap was SO good! I'm planning on doing a "Wordless Wednesday" post tomorrow with a few of our "Snow Day" pictures. I'm too lazy to go downstairs to retrieve the camera right now!
We tried to avoid the television as much as possible today. We watched a little news and weather this morning and quickly turned it off when they started covering the inauguration. I'm usually a sucker for pomp and circumstance, but I'm getting tired of hearing about the inauguration of the first black/African-American president, who happens to actually be of mixed race (???). The only reason I'm really tired of it is because we keep being reminded that it shouldn't be about race, but it keeps being mentioned. I watched about 15 minutes of coverage leading up to the actual swearing in and transfer of power before my sweet Muffin needed help with crayons.
Overall, we had a nice day that I'm sure I'll remember for a long time. I'll probably forget that our "big" snow was on inauguration day, but I'll never forget The Muffin being upset that the snow was covering our pansies and her Cozy Coupe car!
