Snow Day!

There are days when I wake up with great intentions. Actually, most days I wake up with great intentions, and it is not often that I get distracted from them, or choose to ignore them.

However, this morning I opened the curtains, and for probably the 5th or 6th time in a month, the world was covered in white. It looked so fresh and crisp and soft - how could I refuse its temptations? I have sat indoors out of good intention on many a perfect day. Resisted fresh air, fun and exercise in the name of duty.

But not today!

There will always be essays to write, carpets to hoover, people to e-mail. Life provides the wonderful and the mundane in equal measure (at least), yet we choose the mundane all to often! This is not something I intend to do everytime the world outside looks appealing, I must have restraint. But each day is a new chance to live and love completely, turning that chance down too often might have bad consequences. Best not risk it!


  1. Couldn't agree more!
    My goodness those photos really capture the cold!
    Hope you had fun.

  2. Our snow came down at lunchtime... we just went out for a walk in the dark. I'll probably take my camera out tomorrow! :)

  3. Seeing as the portfolio is in - it's snow-time for me again today! Yippee! ;-)

  4. Ahhhh enjoy!!! There's nothing like a field of snow to celebrate freedom from all things work-related!! :-)
