I love snow days. I’m sure that comes as no surprise. I love the anticipation, waiting for the weather forecasters’ predictions to come true…or not. Even though the powers that be called off school for today around 8:00 last night, I still found myself checking outside to see if the snow would start before going to bed. I was up again checking around 3:30am. When would it begin? Well, it finally started coming down around 7am and hasn’t stopped since.
I admit that I am spoiled and would not appreciate it as much if I had to get up extra early and shovel my way out to get somewhere. I’ve done that in the past and don’t miss those days. Also, as I’ve said before, I appreciate all those who must continue to work through this stuff and whose lives get harder because of it. Thank you to all of you!
I thought I would spend some time doing some creative writing today, but with the kids home, my time alone and ability to concentrate were greatly depleted. I could however, take pictures, so that’s what I’ve done. Hope you enjoy some glimpses of our day–snapshots of a snow day:
The kids love nothing more than staying in their jammies all day and generally consider it a great accomplishment. I hope this does not carry over to their adult years, but for now, it’s fun.
We were out from 1-2pm and I actually shoveled the entire driveway for the first time ever. I like to do it, but I’ll probably be paying for it tomorrow…maybe even tonight. Oh well. It was fun. We went back out around 4pm to clean it off again.
