Happy Tuesday to you! I'm once again participating in virtual coffee over at Lucky Number 13.
I saved you a seat.
So, if we were meeting for coffee today, the first thing I would do when I heard the little bells on the coffee shop door and saw you walking toward my table would be to yell "snow day!" This is a pretty big deal, after all. I work at a university and very rarely do universities close because of the weather.
Right now the weather folks are calling for an "historic winter storm," "7 to 11 inches," "a whiteout," "impossible travel conditions," and "snow drifts exceeding 4 feet."
My students are overjoyed.
Me? Well since I am a hall coordinator and I live two feet from my office, it will be work as usual for me. I might be doing a few odd jobs since other staff might not be able to come in- like shoveling, taking out the trash, and flipping burgers in our dining hall.
Kyle and I went to the grocery store last night to stock up on a few items before we get snowed in. Holy moly, you would have thought it was the end of the world. The milk was gone. I grabbed the last half-gallon less than vitamin D. The bread aisle was ransacked, the peanut butter was knocked over, there were no green peppers, and the cottage cheese was sparse for the pickins'. What is the world coming to??!!
If we were meeting in a quiet coffee shop this morning, I'd also tell you what a restful weekend I had. Friday night we went to bed at 9:30pm and slept for a whole 12 hours. Saturday night we fell asleep at 10:30pm. Sunday I took a good 3.5 hour nap. I think my body is telling me that it should hibernate.
What am I drinking? Tea of course. I've pretty much given up coffee at this point. I bought Constant Comment the other day. It's kind of an orange flavored black tea. It's my mom's favorite. Drinking it reminds me of home.
I hope you're having a great Tuesday, friends. Have a cup of tea and think of me.
