Snow globe

Early release from work, thick snowflakes falling sideways outside, cozy pjs and slippers at home: perfect conditions for writing and reading. This has been a week of ups and downs for me. I need to let myself rest and reflect. I hope it snows so much that I get excused from work tomorrow and I can get even more time to myself. We'll see how it pans out.
