DECLARED: A Snow day
I woke up this morning with nothing terribly pressing on my plate. There’s nowhere I have to be, no Big Thing I have to accomplish. So I’m calling it. Snow day!
Remember the bliss as a kid when it snowed in the night and you woke up to find that school was called off and you could go back to sleep? Bliss. We got a very pretty snow last night. It isn't technically enough to call off life out there. But I have the day off. And I'm taking it!
There’s never a shortage in things on the to-do list to cross off, and those nagging back-burner chores to address. And maybe I’ll do some of those things. And maybe not. The calendar is empty today and so here’s what I’m going to do:
1. Watch the episode of Downton Abbey that I missed in order to watch Peyton and Co. win a Super Bowl on Sunday.
2. Drink another cup of coffee.
3. Burn a scented candle.
4. Take the time to make us a nice dinner that requires some time to bake.
5. Go to bed early and awaken fresh tomorrow.
Anything else, at least for this old-fashioned snow day, will be a bonus.
Yes, this is a short blog. It’s a snow day!
