MO white out!
it's another beautiful wintery day here in Missouri! yesterday seemed to have more ice, but today the ground is a powdery white. here's the view from my window
the perks of being enrolled in school during the winter:
2 consecutive snow days!
while i love learning & working hard... nothing feels as magical as waking up, looking across a white blanketed earth, and realizing you can just crawl back into bed and snuggle up with a warm down blanket and a hot cup of coffee.
so what to do on a 2nd day off? yesterday i took a few photos and caught up on reading and school projects. living it up, i know.
i predict that today will be much the same. potential to get ahead on my readings for the following week. make a few hot meals. & drink plenty a cup of tea!
other than that, i've got a pretty good window for people watching. always interesting to see ways in which people approach the snow. some go about normally, others flail with missed steps, weeble and wobbling along the attempted-shoveled pathways... my favorite this morning was a boy out throwing snowballs for his dog to fetch. the dog was excited, but completely confused when the ball disappeared into the snowfall.
