If I was alone (a fantasy), I'd probably still make the chili, just less. I'd also be sure there was enough wood for the fireplace (in my fantasy I have a wood burning fireplace in my log cabin), and a few bottles of Savignon Blanc in the fridge. Instead of the DVR, I'd pick out my favorite records (on vinyl) and crank up the speakers. I'd still be in my cozies, though. That's for sure. Oh, coffee! I forgot, I'd have enough coffee to last a few days just in case I was snowed in for too long. Wait, there's internet access, right? And Scramble with friends? And home made chocolate chip cookies?
Wine, music, coffee, cozies. Am I leaving anything out? What would you bring?
