Anyway, although it's not snowing outside, it is snowing in our apartment. How, you might ask? Lauren and I sat down, turned on some Christmas classics by Burl Ives, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Michael Buble, and other wonderful artists who ushered in a little extra Christmas Spirit into our home. Then we made snowflakes. Only a few. Our plan was to hang many of them around the house, but after Lauren and I started making them (and after Lauren saw the quality of my snowflakes, which look like paper snowflake scraps compared to hers) we decided to make just a few! Not much progress has been made on my part in snowflaking since elementary school. All in all it was a fun time to do something productive with our free time.
Free time? Yes, free time. Granted Lauren is working in the mornings and I have football, but we have ALL afternoon to do whatever we'd like! Life is so funny. During the school year we literally are going 100mph from one assignment to the next, tests, papers, projects etc. Now that we have all the free time we wished for, we find ourselves sitting on the couch, scratching our heads, and thinking harder about what we're going to do this week than we did on some school assignments. It's good, though, to think of good creative ways to have fun without spending money, sitting in front of the TV, or doodling on the computer.
