Rare Moment of Bliss With Snow

2009 December 9

After my 7AM dentist appointment with bad news (about things I’ve put off for years) and lots of snow, I decided to spend a snow day with my husband. The school corporation is closed in the town where his company is located so he is not required to go to work-although he was going to try until we found out that the majority of his coworkers were not present, putting a stop to any advancement on the project. Snow day!

For some reason, I want to be in the elements, with our newer Forester. Oh the fun of plowing into drifts and whipping around corners (in a safe manner) which is just what we did for most of the morning. We also sat in the Quality Bakery in town with doughnuts and coffee, chatting while I enjoyed not being alone during the day- even though it made us pine for more days like this.

After receiving word that my wisdom teeth need to come out, the thing I’ve put off and that I may need a root canal, the fault of the previous dentist that didn’t listen to me and attempted to fill a tooth that rejected 3 previous fillings, I deserve a day to freeze my toes, sled and have a snowball fight. I should just have them take all of my teeth out. Greg said he would whittle me some wooden choppers. When I go in for the evaluation next week and they tell me the cost, I will buy him the material and be done with the whole damn thing. I have a history of good hygiene with a horrible dental record. I know it doesn’t add up but figure in genetics (sorry mom) and soon it makes sense.

So dear reader, I am not posting a recipe. It’s a rare day that snow makes me happy AND that my husband is home from work. (It’s even rarer that snow AND my husband make me happy on the same day.) I think you should do something fun today too. Here are some suggestions for those who found themselves in a winter wonderland this morning: throw snowballs at coworkers attempting to get in their cars, when passing someone shoveling a sidewalk, kick some snow back and tell them they missed a spot (then duck because you never know if you’ll get a shovel to the back of the head) and finally, make one of my recipes on this site (anyone for chocolate chip cookies? or maybe it’s a mulled cider kind of day).

Bundle up and may your snowballs pack tight!
