Today we spent a short, ten, beautiful minutes attempting a walk through Atlantartica. Oh my, it was a big ice rink. We didn't last long out there.
BUT, I will tell you what crazy snow behavior we took part in for hours...television watching. We cut cable a few months ago, so I've been exploring our Amazon account to see what on earth there is to watch during a snowstorm. Well, I already watched the entire documentary on Everest (ask me anything), so I opted for no less than ten episodes of Dual Survival, a show that follows a navy seal and survival expert through dangerous scenarios. So there you have it; I am now skilled in many survival situations. What more could one ask from being snowed in but to learn some pretty crucial survival techniques? Today I learned the following:
A.) White sap is usually a sign that a plant is poisonous
B.) Hippos can have a mouth span of 4 feet!! Also, they are extremely territorial and act craaaaazy when mad. Just don't cross one.
C.) Elephants only digest 50% of all their food which leaves the other 50% to a lucky survivor
D.) Sage is a natural insect repellant.
E.) When building a fire, you're going to need to find a little magical pile of highly flammable materials called tinder.
Welp, if that isn't useful knowledge, I don't know what is. And let me just say there's much more where that came from, friends.
Hope you are enjoying this big, white beautiful blanket and all the ways it shakes things up a bit.
Oh, and don't forget that the V-day giveaway ends tomorrow!
