A Wonderful Day

I took a personal day today, from work, all to myself.


It was beyond wonderful.

I slept until it was light out.

I went downstairs in my jammies and robe.

I went Christmas shopping....and even got myself a couple of treats.

I had my annual tradition of a peppermint mocha coffee (though decaf!)

and looked at the neighborhoods near me who got more Buffalo snow than I did.

Some stores and houses couldn't even be seen from the road

because the snow was piled higher than 8 feet!


Tomorrow it's back to planning and mounds of paperwork

as I complete report cards and comments,

but that's okay.

Today I rediscovered some balance

and took a deep breath

of fresh snowy air.
