Snow Day Fun and Success

Now that the day is half way over, and my family is asking me, "what's for dinner?" I thought I'd post something on my blog. Ha! Nothing serious, just a quick note and maybe some food for thought.

First, I don't get any writing or much reading done when my kids are home from school. But today had some nice highlights.

  • I got to spend most of the day in my PJs.
  • My kids were happy to play in the snow and let me catch up on my google reader.
  • I got to chat with Elizabeth Poole twice online! And we are now facebook friends. :)
  • The snow is really pretty to look at from the warmth of my front room.
  • I got all the laundry washed, folded and put away.
  • The kids did all of their chores before 10am.
  • I went for a two mile run in the snow, and now I feel like I can officially say, I'M A RUNNER. yeah.
  • We are going to have breakfast for dinner, light a fire, and watch Funny Home Videos as a family.
I had some photos to go with these highlights, but for some reason my camera won't register on my computer. I think the usb cord has had it. Anyway, I also started building a Crusader's Castle out of paper. It's gonna take forever! I'll post pictures if I ever get the camera to work.

Here's a song that played during my run. The only phrase I latched onto was: I am fragile, but I'm strong enough, and I thought, that is so true for so many aspects of my life.

The lyrics to the rest of the song are awesome too, and I have to wonder at the story they are telling.

  7. I read the lyrics; they're beautiful and haunting. Gotta grab my 'phones and listen in a minute. You managed to have a full day in spite of the snow! And I'm still in my jammies!

    Breakfast for dinner, my absolute, hands down, favorite!

  9. It was great fun chatting with you on Facebook too! And I love Megan McCauley, even though I've never heard this song before! Have you heard "Wonder" and "I Will Pay You to Shoot Him"? Love those songs.

    Thanks for the new music!

  11. I love snow days. They may not be all that productive writing-wise (my better half runs in every two minutes to check on my progress), but the PJ benefit and family trumps everything else. Thanks for the great music!

  12. That's a cool day Charity! And whenever your camera starts working again, I'd love to see the photos of course :)

    The song was lovely, and that one line captured my attention too when I first heard it. So true, I myself can sum up many aspects of my life in that line.

  13. I kept meaning to go for a walk today or yesterday and I never did manage to get up the gumption to go out there in the snow. Too cold!

    Thanks for the update, Charity. I've been gone for a while but it's good to hear your voice again through your words!
