Winter Is Coming

This year, I am trying to get back into the blogging habit by using a tweet from this date in a previous year as a writing prompt. I have no idea how this will all turn out, and I suspect that there may be several days along the way that are a bit of a Twitter desert. That is, nothing from the last twelve years is really worth of comment. Today is one of those days. Here is the best of the lot:

Snow is on my mind at the moment, as the forecast for next week looks promising in that regard. Since I have a contract to work year round, I am not as tuned in to snow days and make up days...but I admit a childlike interest in the first opportunity of the year. There is something magical about getting to stay home with a cup of cocoa while the snow falls outside. And there is something not so magical about having to do grown up things like make sure there are enough supplies for a week and worrying about whether or not you have to get to the office.  There are so many plans for next week that it makes me tired to think of trying to reschedule them. But I will cross that bridge if we come to it. For now, I will just try to focus on the possibility of a pajama day.
