Letters to Tuvia Y3/#sol18: Snow Day: Let’s Make this a Great One!

Morning T and Slicers,

Yesterday we were living in a pool of sunshine  but thanks to improvements in weather predicting we knew that we would be back in boots and gloves, shoveling.  Yes! Today schools are closed, the parking lot is full with snow covered cars and I’m  up early with Morning Joe, still enjoying a universal pj day!

One thing I loved about teaching was a unexpected break in the routine…SNOW DAY an I still enjoy that break in routine even if my routine is totally up to me.  I can share my freedom with teachers who are still at it!  I wish I could do more for them.  I could start a rant against politicians destroying public education but I need to begin my day in light…

So I pledge to be productive today:  I pledge to play my guitar until my fingers are too sore to continue. I pledge to prep well for my Hebrew lesson tomorrow, to pay bills, to read until my eyes close, to get on my ellipse and stay with it beyond my personal best.

I pledge to feel full when the logs are all burned… I pledge to do everything that will make me beam with productive pleasure and 24 hours from now I’ll be ready to join the world outside.

What are you doing today?

Bonnie S.

PS.  Something better than a snow day?

  1. I still love a good snow day too, Bonnie. Even though I retired, it doesn’t mean the joy of snow days have to retire too! I stayed fairly productive during ours on Monday, but by afternoon my husband was saying, “Do you want to watch something?” So we caught up on TV shows we had recorded but not watched yet. Enjoy yours today!

  2. No snow days here, but last Saturday was a rainy day so I stayed in, sat on the couch, read a book and contemplated its meaning in my life. I love those days when I can stay home, with no makeup, and just do nothing.
