Gift of a day

For those of you living in places that are hot and dry right now, I share with you a shivery, sparkling rush of cold, cold snow. We're at the beginning of a storm this morning that's caused school to be canceled; even Ken is home from work which is so rare that it tells you just how bad the forecasters are expecting this one to be. Not so much because of inches of snowfall, although there is a possibility of 5 to 10, but because it could eventually turn to slush, then sleet, then freezing rain, then rain and that causes treacherous roadways and often a flooded garage for us.

I'm afflicted with the tendency to think I'll achieve more on a snow day (or a weekend, or a vacation) than history suggests I will. I'm trying to keep that in mind as I think about our plans. I'd like to do some sewing, some crafting, some cleaning, some baking -- already I feel myself getting too far out ahead of what's likely. Hmm. OK -- what I'd like is to feel at the end of the day is that I took advantage of the gift.

Beautiful picture. We are just cold and wet over here but at least we can get around without a problem.

I miss snow days...

I have a tendency to think that I'll achieve more on ANY day of the week than recent history suggests. I keep getting to the end of the day and wondering what happened.

It's sunny and 76 degrees F here today. What hope is there for me to have a last spell of cold before I go back to the horrible end of Perth summer? You may have to send me more pics like this ... thank you!

I don't know how I missed this post, but it's still a welcome breeze. I can do without a flooded garage, but I would welcome a blanket of snow and all of my family under one roof!
