Snow Day!

No work today. I heard it on the news, I got it on a text on my phone. All I can say is YAHOO!

I was looking at my blog posts over the last 1 1/2 years and wondered how many posts I have written about the weather. I found quite a few. If you know me, this shouldn't come as a big surprise. My life is ruled by the sun.  I need it as much as food and water and air. I'm not terribly happy when it disappears for days at a time.

So, what does a girl do when she has a snow day?

Well, this morning when I saw the first phone text that we had a work delay until 10:00a.m. I decided to make a batch of  English Muffin Bread.  I have intended to get around to making it and thought I'd better do that before I drink up all the buttermilk. Since I was in the mood, I also made Gene some homemade cornbread from scratch. He's already downed a plate of it and will likely have it again with a bowl of soup for dinner.

Later this morning, we're going to hop on the city bus and head to the mall. I'm not a mall rat but on a day like today it seems like a good idea. I have really been wanting to see a couple of movies so we'll walk around the mall and then hit a show. I love our local bus drivers and especially on days like this. I figure they need some good cheer so we'll give 'em our best smiles as they work hard to move people today. 

And, of course, I'll go out and throw the frisbee to "Missy". She loves the snow as evidenced by sticking her nose down into it and getting all frisky!  Crazy canine.

Time to go dust off those cute purple snow boots and get dolled up for a day date with my hubby!

What are you doing today?

love, susan


  1. It's snowing here too, but alas we did not get a snow day. So, I'm at school working on a paper that's due this afternoon and getting ready to teach my class. It'll be interesting to see how many of my students actually show up today.

    According to many of my fellow grad students, Western never closes. So I may have to institute my own snow days if it's bad enough. I do love commuting though. Somebody else gets to handle the stress of getting me from point A to point B.

  2. Way to go Susan! When life hands you ice, make cold Kool-Aid. Or iced tea, if you will. :) I took a drive today and saw an awesome thing. Now I have to practice drawing it so I can tell my story about the encounter.

    Thinking of you every time I feel the sun on my face. I've been spending more time out than in, so haven't done much letter-writing. I'm living life instead of writing about it for a change. :)

    Be well. And go on with you bad romantic self! ;)

    1. Life is definitely to be lived! I heard someone yesterday say "Make your own sunshine!" Wow, did I ever need to hear that!!

  3. That should read "Go on with YOUR bad romantic self! LOL.

  4. I hope you're still enjoying your snow. I know some people that don't have power down that way. Let alone all the traffic delays getting people in and out of Seattle (AK Air canceled hundreds of flights). In the meantime, the -10F we were supposed to see (a warm up!) never materialized. Another -35F day here. At least if it was snowing it would be warmer!

    Hope you had a wonderful date with your hubby.

    1. Whenever I think about complaining about how cold it is, I think of all you Fairbanks people and just giggle. Our weather is so temporary!


Why Fly When You Can Drive

This is going to be a quick post before I clock back in today. I am a little out of sorts since I was on vacation last week. I know I...
