Using today's snow as a reason, I called out of work. Frankly, I just needed a day to myself. No work worries, no mama worries, no car worries - hell, I'm not even going to pay bills today. That all can wait for another day.
I made a point of going out early to shovel the walk, and clean off Whatshisname's car. Very therapeutic; the cold air, the softly falling flakes, the muffled effect of footsteps on the snow, the sounds of birds cawing off in the distance. I seemed to be the only person in the parking lot working on a car; the rest of the automobiles were all still tucked in blanket's of white.
I could smell wood burning. Someones fireplace. A lovely odor.
After I finished up the car and the walk, I grabbed my camera and shot a few pictures (which you can see scattered about this posting).Then I took a walk down the street as a small squall hit, and the world went blindingly white for a few seconds. As soon as it ended, the snowfall started to taper. They say it's going to all turn to rain by this afternoon and wash it all away. That sucks. I want everything to stay like this for a bit. It's so calming.
I plan on building a fire in the hearth, and then settling down on the sofa with a good book.
I love snow days.
