I am updating this blog from a very cold and snowy place far away from home this morning. As I write this, I am watching the snow fall quietly and slowly across the city buildings. It has no chance of letting up anytime soon, and that’s fine with me. As someone who lives in a warm place, I treasure the rare snowy day that I get to enjoy elsewhere.
When I was younger, snow made me feel energized and alive. I used to run outside as soon as it was warm enough (I grew up in a very cold place) and go sledding. I loved snow days where I got the day off from school. Actually, I lived for them 🙂
As an adult, I find snow to be cozy and even focusing. I bundle up, get a warm drink, and get to work. I think that a light snow is perfect for writing, and I find that those days are the days when I get the most done. And if I ever need to take a break, there’s nothing more invigorating than going for a short walk in the snow. (Forget about shoveling though – I hate it!.)
If I could have my dreams come true, I’d love to have a little snowy mountain vacation house – for skiing, hot chocolate drinking, gazing out the window, and of course writing quizzes. I’d love to have a sweet little hideaway in Colorado or Switzerland or southern New Zealand. Maybe one day 🙂
Until then, I’ll take solace in one of my favorite quizzes: The Snow Test
Just taking The Snow Test brings me back to the happiest snowy days of my life, and I am hoping that it will do the same for you. What do you think of this quiz and your result? Comment below and let me know.
