Snow Day!

  Today was our first real snow day this winter. (I’m not counting the Halloween snow storm we had as that was still technically the fall…) Yay! 🙂

The first thing I did after breakfast was bundle up and head out to the trail by my house. Beautiful! Everything was still pristine, unmarred by traffic or shovels. It made for quite the workout! Of course, while I walked I got shown up by an old man garbed in sweats and running shoes as he zipped by me. Now that’s hard core! 🙂

It also made for ideal writing weather, so my novel is progressing nicely. I also figured out some of the plot/character twists I’d been mulling over, which is even more exciting as it’s hard for me to write when I’m not quite sure where I’m going.

Then tonight I’m headed over to a friend’s for games and dessert. Hooray for a snow day! 🙂

My weekend goal is to hit 10,000 words. Here I go!


This is what it looked liked this morning when I took my dog out for a walk. It was a winter wonderland! 🙂

I worked until 9 last night at the library and kept checking outside to see how the roads were as I have a bit of a far drive on back roads in order to return home. Around 8 it was flurrying but nothing was sticking to the roads so I wasn’t too worried. At 8:30 a thin covering was just on the sidewalks and by 8:45 it was really snowing heavily. By the time I checked the conditions the parking lot was already covered with a blanket of snow! I was able to leave a few minutes early so I had a better chance of getting home safely. I think I may have hit 30mph on my way home it was snowing so hard. I couldn’t even see the lines on the road! Fortunately there weren’t many cars on the road and I made it home without any problems.

I was scheduled to work this morning but the library is having a delayed opening so I won’t be going in at all today. Instead I’m going to continue to work on my book, bike on my indoor trainer and go for a long snowy walk. Even adults get to enjoy snow days every once in a while. 😀
