Last night, on November 20th Ontario received it’s first taste of winter. Although I am a die-hard Canadian and am forever thankful to call myself a Canadian, I never have been a big fan of blistering winds and soaking wet feet.
In fact, I was even less of a fan when winter hit this year because on Friday – just two days prior to this mini storm – I was outside in a t-shirt on enjoying the (albeit brown) grass and rays of sunshine.
So much to my surprise when I woke up Monday morning (today) to a program-wide snow day and my car buried under at least 1 foot of fluffy white shit.
I figured I had two choices. Number 1 – enjoy my day off and cuddle deeper into my heated bed. Or, number 2 – make the most of my day off and embrace the winter weather that I am going to be stuck with for the foreseeable future.
I went with option 2 – even though my body disagreed when I tore the warm sheets away at 7:30a.m.
However, I am happy to report back that it is now 10a.m. and I am writing to you from my couch with all my errands checked off and complete. In fact, before 9:30a.m. I changed all my bedsheets, put in a load of laundry, unburied my car, went grocery shopping, cleaned out my fridge, took out my garbage, put my laundry in the dryer, dusted my entire apartment and washed dishes.
I am not going to lie I am feeling a bit like superman – I think the snow might have brought a little bit of magic too.
And I am not the type of person to complain about magic – even if I want to complain about the snow.
Happy snow-day to everyone – even if it is sunny and warm where you are today.
