This is the Celebrating the Small Things blog hop, run by Lexa Cain and her two wonderful co-hosts L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits. Check them out and be prepared to smile!
Today I am celebrating the fact that I am at home at this moment and watching the snow shift down.
I started out heading for work with the snow falling all around me like miniature stars speckling my windshield. Snow is so pretty, but you have to understand and respect it if you are in an automobile.
I made it safely to work and found one other person there. No one else. My employer had declared a 'snow day' but had sent the announcement rather late. My coworker and I had a good laugh, I shook the snow from my hair and my boots, settled down at my desk, and started working.
Only a fool would try to drive back during rush hour among a pack of people who forget, from snowstorm to snowstorm, that snow/slush/ice exist and are dangerous.
I accomplished a great many things and then, at lunch time, headed home to enjoy my Snow Day.
