Duncan is loving our first snow of winter. He wasn’t happy when I told him to come back inside, though.
Almost five inches (our biggest snowfall since 2015!).
I wasn’t expecting snow on Saturday morning (I guess I didn’t pay attention to the forecast), but it definitely made my commute to work (via bus) picturesque.
Isn’t it dreamy? The artist is Anna Whelan Betts.
Big snow is a-coming this weekend! Well, maybe. The meteorologists cannot decide whether we are in for 2.5″ or 23.5″…no joke! Regardless of the outcome, this wait-and-see situation has me dreaming of snuggling on the sofa with my beasties, a good book (or three), and a bottomless supply of warm beverages. With that in mind, I’ve curated a handful of cozy, bookish items for this Snowbound Edition of Shopping for the Bookworm. Enjoy!
Quick! A blizzard’s on the way, let’s gather some essential bluestocking supplies!
Loose leaf tea:
Decadent hot chocolate:
Eight timeless books:
And a few other ideas:
*Special treats for your furry friend(s)*
*Extra-thick moisturizer or lotion*
*A bottle of bubbly to shake up the hot drink monotony*
*Homemade gingerbread cake* (I use the recipe from A Christmas Carol Cookbook)

“Well, I know now. I know a little more how much a simple thing like a snowfall can mean to a person.”–Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
It was nearly 80 degrees on Friday, 24 February. In Ohio. Odd (and worrisome), yet glorious.
Naturally, with this being (Central) Ohio and all, it was 60 degrees during a winter festival in February. We still had fun, though. And it was nice not being bundled up.
