While it’s bad enough that I’m not on a beach right now (I can deal), and those games that I ordered for the boys got held up at the border (I can work around this)… I simply cannot… and WILL NOT… stand for 10-15cm of snow after we have “sprung forward”.
*Shakes fist at Mother Nature*
Blizzard-like conditions could make for dangerous travel in Ontario! screams the headline on The Weather Network.
“The snow will become heavy at times and continue east into the Kingston to Cornwall region through the day with total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm expected by tonight,” warns Environment Canada in the statement.
Snowfall will be somewhat less from southern Lake Huron across the Greater Toronto Area to Ottawa, where up to 15 cm is possible. In addition, strong northeasterly winds with gusts up to 70 to 80 km/h could result in near blizzard conditions in some places.
“The heaviest snow is expected to fall late morning through the afternoon hours, with the strongest winds likely around 2 pm,” says Soderholm. “That means the snow will be blowing around, which could be a huge hazard for commuters.”
In a funk too? S’okay. The day can be saved, as long as you have a few staple ingredients on hand, Martha Stewart’s recipe for Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, and a deliciously cute kid who can strike an angelic pose. Though I’m still giving Mother Nature the stink eye.
If you need me, I’ll be under a pile of warm cookies. Send milk.

What’s up with all this snow today?!
Ugh, I don’t know! Still can’t see the patio :(
Not good commuting for sure but if there’s snow…good weather to make snowmen, snow angels and now soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies! |-) This is the Great White North! I think we’ve been blessed with warm and less snowy winters for the last little while and gotten used to that…
That’s the spirit, friend! And you’re right… I think I just forgot what winter in Canada really feels like!
I remember one year we got worse than this in April !!! As long as it stops today and the roads are clear (although back in the deep freeze) tomorrow I will be happy. Just trying to muster up the oomph to go shovel the driveway for the I-don’t-know-how-manyeth time this winter …
Then I think cookies…. yes, and a warm fuzzy blanket…. ahhhhhh…… ;)
Ah… warm fuzzy blankets and cookies always make winter more bearable!
OK that seriously just made my day!! What a cutie :)
Hahaha thanks Allie! He’s my cutie!
Chocolate chip cookies are awesome.
Yes they are! I don’t prefer them myself but my boys love them :)

What a cutie!!!! The chocolate chip cookies look good too! Hopefully this is winter’s last visit, fingers crossed!
Fingers crossed indeed! Though it was almost -30 with the windchill this morning, ugh!
I just keep thinking spring has to come, it’s gotta melt. It will come, it will come!
It will! Time melts all snow, LOL!
This kid is so adorable….I’d love to bring my warm blanky and enjoy those delicious chocolate chip cookies with you Lena!
Hahaha you’re always invited Marissa!
He is such a cutie! And talk about timing, I needed a good chocolate chip cookie recipe as I have been told to bring a treat to my meeting at my daughters school for her IEP. Apparently bringing treats helps you out when trying to get services for your kid at school.
Oooh, who knew a treat could help? Good luck!
Hasn’t this winter been horrible?? Here we are the middle of March, under inches of snow, & more coming this weekend
Mother Nature has hit menopause I do believe!
Hahah I love that! Too funny… but there’s nothing funny about all this snow!!
“Hurry up and take the pic already. I want to eat these cookies!!”
LOL I’m sure that’s what he was thinking! Actually Reid is quite patient with me. His big brother… not so much!
I just want spring to get here! I will suffice with warm cookies and a cup of coffee for now!
Agreed! Looks like warmer weather is on the way!
Spring is nearly here and the weather still sucks.
I know it does :( Soon, hopefully!
great picture, such a cutie he’s got such big beautiful brown eyes, but I think he really wants his cookies.lol
LOL yes, I tortured him a bit by making him wait!!
Thats so cute!! Ontario has gotten way too much snow this year!! Last year when I was there in winter, it felt like spring!! Crazy weather. Hope you guys enjoy your March Break
Thanks Erika! Hopefully spring is on the way!
It is still snowy where I live too. Come over and bring cookies! ;)
