We got about 18″ here in Boston so far, and the snow will continue until late tonight. Perfect day to snuggle in under the red fleece blanket I bought freshman year of college and sip on coffee and finish reading The Waste Lands by Stephen King. Gabe’s gone in to the office for a few “freebie” hours.
Today reminds me of my first year of teaching. We had a ton of snow that year and school was canceled frequently. I would sit in my old blue chair, feet up on the hassock, under the same red fleece blanket and read, too, or stare out the window at the snow falling down, day-dreaming.
I day-dreamed of the future then. I dreamed of being somewhere else. Little did I know that that dream manifested. I’m living it.
What are you doing on this snow day? Or, if it’s not snowing where you are, what is it like? What would you do on a snow day?
