I’ve gotten 2 and 3/4 days off because of our blizzard. Plus the two days of the weekend.
I had hoped to do a Blizzard Blog Blitz and get a lot of reviews posted while I had the time off. As it was, I did get some house-cleaning done. But yesterday, going for a walk in the snow so wiped me out, I ended up napping and the day was eaten up.
So my choice today: Go for another walk in the snow, or stay inside and get things done?
But I got to thinking: I couldn’t pay enough to get a vacation where I’d get to have long walks in deep snow each day, followed by a nap and reading by a fire. On top of that, add in no need to drive! And games with my son.
I knew I’d have to go back to work soon enough. (Tomorrow, as it happens.) I chose to seize the opportunity to go out and walk in just about the deepest snow I’ve ever experienced. (In 2010, it was probably deeper, but I didn’t have such a nice place to walk — and I also didn’t have a garage, so spent all my energy digging my car out.)
And, Wow! How blessed I was to have that experience! I will remember this morning forever. Just a treat.
