bred in the bone

I think I have said this before — but I believe deeply and truly that snow is created to make us slow down.

So here I sit, watching the cat watching the birds.

I have declared it a snow day.

There is no reason in the world that I couldn’t do 8, 10, 12 hour work today without setting foot outside.  But that would be to miss the point of this rare white sabbath.

The vestry might — might — get their agenda tonight.  But maybe not.

Tomorrow normal things can resume.

  1. Now that sounds like a plan. At 8pm last night I looked out and saw the 1+ inch of snow on the car and thought best to move it just in case. Thankfully I was able to get to work. I’m very keen on going to work this week given that I can start at 10 and finish at 4 and have 2 hour lunches every day if I feel like it. It feels like a real luxury. I even managed to get to the hairdressers today and still got home before my normal time.

  2. Hope you enjoyed the day off… Sadly Universities (mine anyway) have never heard of snow days so its business as usual but I must admit to being annoyed at a snow day (despite the fact im knackered) seeing as im enjoying my courses as much as I am… sad I know

  3. no, Mary, that’s good.

    Enjoy it. It’s a rare thing to be able to focus as much time as you want on something you care about.

    (and why, if that’s not the daily reality, we need the occasional snow day)
