snow day - a wordful wednesday post



the point of word-full wednesday - a riff on the wordless wednesday some bloggers participate in - is to post a photo and then write about it as much as you want. i saw this over on tutu's bliss, and thought it was such a cute idea i'd try it here. she led me to another site from whom i grabbed this great button:



so stop on over and leave them some comment love, and maybe even try one yourself!!! :)

as you can see from the above photo, the woods may indeed be snowy dark and deep here in the wilds of new england, but fortunately i don't have to go anywhere today. nowhere at all... and after the last two days' whirlwind of activity, it feels good to have nothing to do. i wanted to write in the worst way last night - i haven't had a chance to do more than move my notes from one side of the computer to the other - but i was just too tired. my brain refused to function, like an old computer refusing to boot up.

so today, i get to stay home and look at this. the snow's predicted to fall throughout the day, and as the weatherman announced with such devilish glee, it's only going to get worse. i've a candle for my children - well, everyone's children, really - who may have to venture out in this weather, that they find their way safely.

i have a roast in the fridge - i'm planning on baking cookies later, and making yorkshire pudding with roast, because i didn't make it last time. i'm itching to go back to writing - the friend who went to hawaii took 130 pages with her. in anticipation of her return three weeks from now, i hope to have at least a rough final draft completed.

i am so grateful for this snow day!

Wow, that's pretty. I see grey drizzle, but at least it's almost 60. I think. I haven't been outside since 8 a.m.

Must be cold up north all the wordful Wednesday pics I have seen have been snow. Come visit me all blog friends. It is in the 70s down here in Florida.

Bonnie said...

I do miss the occasion snow day, but after a "cold" snap here in Florida last week, I don't think I could handle New England winters ever again.

I'm so sorry that Mother Nature keeps mistaking MA for PA...you know, 'cuz I keep asking her for snow, and she keeps bypassing us and slamming you with it instead... ;)

BEAUTIFUL picture, what a serene view to look out at while you organize your thoughts! Dinner sounds YUMMY - now I'm hungry! (grin!!) Stay warm! :)
