In case you didn't get the memo, we also have had 2 extra days off from school this week for some delightful cold Northern WI weather. -30 - -40 degree windchills will do that to ya. I have to smile (I've grown incredibly tolerant these days) at the people who in their infinite wisdom question the decisions of school districts around the state who cancelled classes.. Seriously?? I heard of one radio announcer who actually said if he had to come to work, why can't they just have school?? Well, how about that you aren't 5 and you don't have to ride a school bus for 45 minutes in the middle of no where?? I guess I am not so tolerant, lol. These people would be the first to sue a school district if their little kid got frost bite standing at the bus stop waiting for a broken down school bus. Ah yes.
Anyway, that first day off was epic for me. I had a list about a mile long to accomplish and I DID! I was so pleased with myself! :) The second day, yesterday, I was more at a loss. I knew that if I wanted to sit and read all day - I could, but I felt way more restless. I ended up getting a few things accomplished, and I did sit and read for a while. But not as much as I wanted to. Oh well. It was REALLY cold and windy yesterday. I think the high was -7. About 7 last night I established myself in a nest of blanket and pretty much stayed there for the rest of the evening. TODAY, I see on the news, we have a double blessing of a wind chill advisory (merely -20 windchills) AND a winter weather advisory (2-4 inches of snow with that wind). Yay for us!! I did manage yesterday, to step outside in the morning to get a couple really nice photos using the gorgeous morning sunlight.

So I will head off into my day in a while here, armed with the knowledge that no matter how goofy the kids are from their extra day off and being cooped up in the house/school that this will be a 3 day week! It is Friday already tomorrow. Wow! And the MA is starting into his January routine and comes home later and later- but still will take weekend afternoons off for a while yet. Hopefully the temp recovers enough over the weekend for some serious snowshoeing to take place. And he can go back and burn stuff and do other cabin things for a few more weekends.
So have a happy day, whatever day it is and be a joy giver in this New Year! We all need a few more joygivers in life.
