Snow Day!

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Yesterday the temps got up into the low 50's. It was so nice - were it earlier in the day when I left work, I would have considered taking my 2 grands to the zoo. But I wouldn't want the other 3 kids to feel left out.
Of course we'd hear that there was a winter storm coming our way, and there was talk about whether or not the superintendent would close schools. He's a tough bird. Sometimes we've kept the kids home because of the frigid temps, cancelation or no. Well, last night the automated phone call went out - they were indeed going to close. Yay, we get to sleep in!

So I got up around 7 and looked out, and the roads looked just fine. I was thinking, "Oh, I hope it DOES come, to justify the closing, or the superintendent will be loath to do so again!" Well, little by little it approached, then picked up, and now - yup, good thing they closed! Glad I picked up more bread and milk yesterday!

So, what have I done so far? I finished the Monet puzzle - letting the kids come in by ones, two's, up to threes...There is ONE PIECE MISSING! Argh! Perhaps it fell and got shoved under my mattress...I'll scrounge around for a bit before I disassemble it.

I also got on the bike twice so far, in 20 minute sessions. I may get on a third time, or do some other cardio. Maybe my buddy Richard!

I think it's time to do some reading as well - I have a book by Pastor Bob Sorge, The Fire of Delayed Answers. I think it's a good time to re-read it, given all the waiting Levi and I have to do. And I will probably watch some documentaries on Netflix. I put Michael Palin's Sahara on my list. I wish they had Around the World in Eighty Days - but they did have Himalaya and I just finished watching that series. I love his manner of doing a travelogue!

The calendar says spring is just around the corner.

But I may have to shovel it out first.
