My mom was a children’s librarian when I was young. She would host story hours and this is one of the books that I vividly remember her reading. It was a staple at Story Hour and at home where we read about Peter exploring his neighborhood after a snowstorm.
Today was a snowy day for us since the Blizzard of 2015 came to town. Haven’t had a snow day in a long time, but this one came along at the right time. I’ve been feeling punk since the weekend and today when I woke up I really had no energy and felt lethargic. I moved from my bed to the comfort of the couch next to the wood stove. Binged watched Orange Is The New Black, watched a movie and spent a little time in the kitchen making comfort foods. I didn’t open my work laptop, although I had planned on being productive on my snowy day.
I felt guilty at first, but then realized how fortunate I was to have my RA flare up on a day when I really didn’t have to do anything. What a great way to spent The Snowy Day.
