Ice Day

I feel that it is only fitting to blog today on my day off from work due to an inch of ice!!! When I started this blog about two years ago, I started it on my first-ever snow day as an educator.

So, I sit here this morning, bundled up on the couch, with a large cup of coffee and books on my ottoman that I am ready to tackle. However, Mr. Hoosier is also off of work today, so I am not sure I will get very far with my stack. Yes, you read that right, his work closed too- the joys of being a part of a small business. Oh how, I love his new company (for many reasons other than this ice day)!

As for the ice, poor Bailey went out this morning and her feet didn't even sink in our backyard because the snow that was already there is now covered with an inch of ice. This is all fun right now as we sit in our warm home, but the worst is supposed to come tonight, which could mean loss of power. If this happens, I will not be a happy camper! I love a random day off of work just as much as the next person, but to have to sit in the cold is not for me. Whew, I sure am thankful for my warm, cozy home.

So, as the majority of our city is "closed" today, I will spend my day getting lost in some books and catching up on some school work... at least I hope! It has been quite some time since I have indulged in a book for pleasure because I have been knee deep in books to better my teaching; to say the least I am looking forward to hours spent in chick lit instead of children's it!

Until next time,
H =)
