We had a snow day today. I love snow days. I don't even care that they have to be made up later. I fully accept them for the gift that they are. Usually I use a snow day to finish up all of the work I had brought home but didn't do. But I finished all of my work last night. (I was planning to hand it all back this morning.) So I was staring at a day with no work, no plans, and no obligations. I didn't know those existed. I wasn't sure what to do.
I made some hot cocoa for breakfast. Then I settled onto the couch to watch It's a Wonderful Life. And I watched out the window as the snow continued to blow and drift.
I made chocolate chip cookies and listened to Christmas music. I once heard that you shouldn't be snowbound without chocolate chip cookies, so, you know, I had to honor that rule.
