Snow Days are Slow Days

We woke up this morning to a thick blanket of snow over every inch of Montreal. And when I say a thick blanket I mean, at least 70 cm of snow. It was still snowing when I woke up, and it’s still snowing now, 6 hours later. Who knows when it’ll stop.

Today was officially labelled a Snow Day after our university sent out emails telling us classes were cancelled, and that we were all better off staying inside.

I’ve always loved snow days, and even being in university hasn’t changed that.

I remember having so many snow days early in high school. We’d get a call early in the morning from our teachers, telling us to stay home. When it snowed late at night we’d eagerly wait for the call the next morning, the call that gave us freedom to lay around and get away with doing nothing.

It was strange getting that feeling again this morning.

To me, snow days = slow days.

That means a self care day. A day where you do all your favorite things, and you don’t have to think about responsibilities or homework or that laundry you have to get done. It can wait. Today, we’re taking care of you.

So I turned up my music,

ate toast and bananas with peanut butter and honey,

did a face mask,

drank loads of water,

cleaned my room

and took care of myself.

Today’s layout included:

  • my bed
  • my notebooks
  • Unmasking Superfoods by J. Sygo
  • my knitting (Eva and I are making a patchwork blanket for our apartment)
  • Hand cream
  • Lush’s “Cup O’ Coffee” Face Mask
  • An orange (Vitamin C is important)
  • The Spring issue of 3 Fois Par Jour (a foodie magazine I highly recommend)
  • a Snow Day Playlist (that I shared with you lower down!)

If you’re looking for me, I’ll be under my duvet.
