Under Wraps

This weekend I stayed under wraps, literally. The temperatures in my town struggled to reach double digits. I don't know about you, but when there are several inches of snow on the ground and the high temperatures is 8, that basically calls for a weekend spent under blankets and comforters.

I slept in hours past my normal wake up time basking in the warmth of my down comforter. It was completely luxurious to roll over and go back to sleep, while pulling the comforter over my  head. I spent some time wrapped in a colorful afghan my great grandmother crocheted streaming some fun old musicals from Netflix, watching them with my mom while singing along, talking about some fum memories and just enjoying the quality time with her.  I spent some time chatting on the phone with a faraway friend, huddled under my favorite blanket, talking about the possibilities of future dreams that might go along with a home she and her husband are hoping to make their own.

Sure I did a few productive things, like bake chocolate chip cookies and a load or two of laundry, but that was it. This weekend was about laying low, shutting out the cold, and just completely losing myself in a relaxed weekend. There's something wonderful about not having any plans and purposefully not making any. Sometimes you just need to wrap up and stay warm.

How was your weekend? Did you wrap up and hibernate against the cold?
