We have about a foot of snow in Tulsa, and it’s still coming down. My office is closed. My evening class is cancelled. I guess I have what people call “free time.” So far the day has been full of family time. I got to sleep in until almost 8am, then laid on the couch with Carolyn while the girls watched PBS kid shows. After that, gluten-free banana oatmeal muffins were enjoyed by all. The recipe is right here. Today’s the sort of day that calls for breakfast to have a dessert, so we ate some snow ice cream.
Escapist music is spinning on the turntable. I’m not sure if that makes cabin fever worse or better. Right now it’s Jackson Browne’s “Running on Empty” album, and I’m leaning toward Bob Seger’s “Against the Wind” next.
Lunch is cooking. After that, I’ll be able to focus on some serious writing while the girls nap. Hopefully they nap. We can’t really do the car nap thing as back up today… I have ideas for a short story, a few blog posts, and maybe even a poem. Here’s to snow days as writing days. *raises mug of hot chocolate* Cheers.
