Snow Day Fun

My husband, Christopher, wearing his kilt on a snowy day.

This past week, North Texas had below freezing temperatures as well as ice.  My husband and I didn’t want to risk driving around (or even walking) on the ice, so we were cooped up for a few days.

Fortunately, Thursday night it snowed and made walking around a little easier.  We decided to get out Friday and have some fun.  We went for a long walk and then decided to go back out.  The second time, Christopher decided to wear his kilt!

Not only did we get some fun photos, but we brought his video camera and he juggled snowballs and had a blast.  It was nice to get out — I’m not used to being cooped up and missing my workouts (I just didn’t want to slide on ice and get hurt — especially since I had just gotten over a cold).

I tried to keep busy with embroidery etc, but admittedly it was hard to focus long enough to do much.  Between being distracted watching cars slide by on the road outside, less lighting from the clouds, and pacing around from being cooped up… I didn’t get as much done as I probably could have.

While it was fun getting out Friday, and I actually prefer cooler weather to hot weather, icy roads are something we can all do without.  Especially when it keeps you from getting things done!  We’re looking forward to life getting back to normal.

The video below is something Christopher quickly threw together of the footage I took.  Some of it was from our earlier venture out while he was wearing jeans, and the rest is from when he was kilted.

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.

  1. As much as I like winter, the ice was a bit much, even for me. So I was so happy when it finally snowed and we got the chance to get out and have some fun!

  2. I’m the same way, Christopher. I don’t mind cold weather (prefer it to summers here… I dread and hate summers!), but ice I can do without. Especially since it was thick ice, and everywhere! Gah!

    The ice was miserable. I was really hesitant to walk outside and when I finally had to, I had to be pretty careful, as everyone did. By Saturday when it warmed up, the roads were packed with people getting out. Good to see that you had a chance to get out and play when it snowed.
