We all know the next few days in Halifax will inevitably bring buckets of snow. You’re likely home right now reading this article with a bag of chips by your side because work or school has been cancelled.
If you and bae are spending the day snowed in together, scan through this list for some ways to keep yourselves entertained – sexual innuendo intended.
1. Netflix & Chill
Start binge watching a brand new show and chill on the couch all day – school is closed, work is cancelled, so you finally have an excuse to see what all the buzz surrounding Westworld is about.
2. Play some board games
If it’s just you and your significant other, break out the cribbage board or play some cards to pass the time.
3. Plan a tropical vacation
Don’t let the brutal winter weather get you down! Surf the web for a super cheap tropical vacation and escape the cold with your partner.
4. Try a new recipe
You’ve got nothing else to do – get all the supplies in your kitchen together and research some crazy recipes, or whip up some wild baking experiments for a delicious dessert to follow up your entrees.
5. Celebrate 420
If you’re just watching movies and snacking all day, may as well get stoned?
6. Read a book
Catch up on some school work, or finish that novel you’ve been meaning to read but just never have the time for now that you’re snowed in!
7. Have a wine tasting night
Break out the good cheese and indulge in a glass or seven of that wine you've been saving for a special occasion.
8. Try P90X
Or any other workout regimen that allows you to get fit from the comfort of your own home.
9. Build a snow fort in the yard
And maybe a couple snowmen to stand guard.
10. Challenge your partner to a video game duel
Super Smash Bros, Call Of Duty - show your s/o who's boss on the game console.
11. Go through old photos
Organise all the photos on your Macbook that you've been meaning to put into folders, or get your film prints out and put them in some albums!
12. Start a massage train
Treat yourselves to an at home day-spa by turning your bathroom into a sauna or giving each other foot massages.
13. Have breakfast in bed
Chow down on the best meal of the day in the most relaxing way possible.
14. Clean your house
You're home with nothing to do, might as well be productive!
15. Order in
If you can find a Halifax restaurant that stayed open during the snow storm, order in some pizza for the night.
16. Have a movie marathon
The Oscars are coming up, have you seen all the nominated films? Download the movies you've been meaning to see and binge watch them with your partner.
17. Travel the world on Google Maps
Check out satellite images of Paris, Rome or London from the comfort of your living room couch.
18. Pet sit for a friend
If you don't have a critter of your own call up someone you know and ask if they need a hand watching their cat or dog for the night!
19. Make some s'mores
If you're lucky enough to have a wood burning fireplace, grab some marshmellows and graham crackers and pretend you're on a camping trip in a much warmer climate...
