Snow Day!

Wow, a beautiful day today! There was a dusting on the ground when I left the house this morning, and by the time I got home after work the grass was totally covered. And the puppy totally redeemed himself and his piddling tendencies by being so amazingly cute in the snow. Chasing snowballs, burrowing, making snow angels...it was a very exciting day for the little guy. At right is the view from my office. While I live and work very close to Washington DC, my days are spent overlooking parkland. Deer, hawks...it's nice work amidst beauty.
The view of my office, however, is a little scary. I've never quite learned how to purge [ask anyone who knows me, and they'll tell you it's true!], and the piles are wearing me down. I think tomorrow will be all about getting organized, with a few meetings thrown in to keep me on my toes. I live in constant fear that I'll toss something that I'll need later on...time to address that fear.

But I was also reminded today that I do, in fact, live in the South. These people cannot drive in weather! I passed several accidents on my way into work, and was released early to get a jump on the home commute before the roads froze. In Pittsburgh? This would barely get a mention on the news... but here in DC, it was a biiiiig deal. One of my colleagues , who lives two or three towns over, had a 3-hour commute this morning. Wow, does that bite or what?

On the docket for this evening? Some creative writing, some for work and some for pleasure. A little professional reflection. A cup of tea and a kitty curled up on my lap. And outside my window, a winter wonderland. Life is good indeed.
