Things to do in Denver when you’re snowed in on a Sunday. (Purely hypothetically, of course.)
- Watch far too much television, until the point of physical discomfort from that nagging kink in your neck and the headache caused by your sad, strained eyes.
- Take digital pics of your kids/dog/flowers in the snow and send them off to every news channel in town to proudly display – repeatedly – throughout the evening’s newscasts.
- Find something new and creative to do with your treasured “indoor day.” Like, say, scrapbooking.
Seriously, days like yesterday offer a rare opportunity to dig through your basement, hall closet, or old bookshelves and work on those kinda-geeky rainy day (or blizzard day, in our case) projects. And now that scrapbooking is officially a huge trend – there are even online scrapbook superstores now- it’s a fine time to jump aboard the bandwagon and join the fun. There are stores all over town providing all the goods along with beginner classes; you just have to settle in and get started. So what’s the difference between a photo album and a scrapbook? Scrapbooks include all those oddball little souvenirs you collect during your travels through life. Notes from friends, postcards from lovers, matchbooks from restaurants, crayoned images from children, or a broken anklet bought on the beach in Mexico can all be worked into a lovely little collection of images and trinkets that tell more of the story than pictures alone. It’s definitely a project for girly girls, moms, and coffee clutches, so invite the gal pals and make it a party. Or you can always just spend more time alone on the couch. Just watch that kink — it could get nasty.
