The Secret to Snow Days: #SOL15 #Writingintotheday #26


Yesterday was a snow day for many schools in my area and as usual, I move back into my past,  where on my school’s snow days, I  stayed in my pjs for as long as possible. But as Tuvia prepped for work yesterday, I followed his lead and showered and dressed for my day in the house 🙂

And I worked!

Sure, I chatted on the phone, but I worked!

I was here poised at my computer to work on new digital pieces. I even added a new project to the list for a friend’s upcoming wedding for her daughter…

I dusted off my guitar and practiced through the messy torture of fingers uncomfortable on their  strings, at first…

What a day!

Back in my past the pj days did not end well.  Sure, I enjoyed a morning of TV, reading and snacks but soon I was anxious and feeling guilty that I wasn’t more productive, ignoring the stuffed school bags waiting for me to tackle.  Could it have been so simple- just getting into the shower and treating the day as a day of work at home?

Hmmm… good thing there’s no going back.   Right now I’m still in pjs and writing, not work, exactly 🙂

Today the gym is calling me to the shower, but not yet.

  1. Sounds like the key is what you are wearing. PJ’s are comfy, but I’ve never been able to spend a day in them (unless I am sick in bed). I have to get dressed to get the day started.

  2. I’m sitting in a hotel room (not in my PJs) since I just flew into town. The gym is calling me, but instead of heeding its call I’m noshing on trail mix as I sit here reading slices. (The gym can wait.) Right now I’m enjoying having my feet up.

  3. I love pj mornings, but agree that I feel more productive if I actually put on clothes. I like to pretend I am retired when I have a day off.

  4. I am a long way from snow days these days Bonnie, but your piece revived memories of my NYC days. In fact,my very first snow shoveling experience took place in Thiells NY way back in April 2000. We work in a whole host of ways and a variety of costumes it seems. Thanks for the reminder. Thanks for the connection. In Australia we are presently experiencing a late summer heatwave. Quite a contrast. Stay warm.

  5. Snow days and PJ days! A perfect combination in my book. We haven’t had any this year. I committed to getting dressed every day after retirement, but I could use a PJ day. Sometimes I declare Sundays PJ days. Once I’m home from church, it’s back into my PJs, especially in the winter. Glad you had a productive day.
