So, how are you spending your snow day?

Snow Day
With a great many offices and schools just closing up for the day, there’s a bunch of us sitting at home enjoying a bit of a free day. What are you doing with yours?

I made waffles:

My dog knows how to spend a snow day:

Actually, she does that same thing on non-snowy days.

And later, perhaps some light bike maintenance, video editing, and general catching up on stuff.

How did you spend your day?

    Bah, working. But having good memories about riding in the snow yesterday.

    I’m working as well, but judging by whatever died and crawled onto your waffles, maybe I’m better off this way. Are those figs, maybe?

    i am trying to find a way to get warm clothes to people in shelters. I think i may have convinced the car coop to lend me a car with snow tires so i can go around the city and pick up donations from people.
    i am collecting names of people who would like to donate… http://www.changeeverything.ca/joe_could_really_use_a_hat

    I used up my snow day last night! So I’m stuck inside doing homework. Maybe if I get it all done, I’ll go outside and build some more public snow art (aka.: snowmen) ;)

    Damn, I wrote a redundant snowy day post.

    It’s my “Sunday.” Now that I’ve finished the outdoor sidewalk clean-up and digging out my car for tomorrow, I relaxed with a late morning nap and now a cup of tea and a round of blogs.

    But that really sounds sucky compared to what Kate’s doing.

    Matt: those are rum-soaked figs, with the rum they were soaking in as a “syrup.” Recommended.

    Kate: charity trumps a big plate of waffles any day of the week. Good on ya.

    um…where on earth did you get fresh figs in november? please tell me!

    Ariane: if only I could. Here’s my recipe:

    Step 1: when your mother-in-law gives you figs from her tree in August, put them in the oven and dry them.

    Step 2: confused as to what to do with a bunch of dried figs, put them all in a mason jar and cover them with dark rum.

    Step 3: make waffles in November, and realize you are out of syrup. Put figs, chocolate, and a bit of the rum over the waffles instead.

    It’s all a bit of a blur after that, really…but I heartily recommend making rum-soaked figs. They’re also good on ice cream, or desperately fished out of the rum in twos, at which point if you’re like me, you (pathetically) have a pretty healthy buzz going.
