Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!
Got my snow day. It is after noon, and still coming down as it has been the past three or four hours.
Hours later: I’m watching Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? A Episcopal priest is going for the million dollars. Now a commercial break, and DH is channel surfing. Ch. 9, and Sherman Alexie is one, speaking with Enrique Cerna. Back to the $500,000 question. Legendary Native American leader Geronimo was the chief of what tribe? The priest said Apache. The fifth grader said Chumash tribe. Apache was right, and we didn’t have to wait for a zillion commercials to get to that point. More Sherman, and then back to the million dollar final question. Did the priest go for it, or did he quite while he was ahead? He decided to take the money and run. What was the final question? Who wrote the 1812 Overture? Poor guy, and he of course knew that one too, having taught music for eight years.
Today was spent taking two walks, and at least 150 photos. I got my Christmas letter composed, and ready to print tomorrow. Now I have to put together the photo card to sent with the letter, and maybe select a poem for the year. We made two batches of gingerbread cookies. These are all creative things. And that feels good to me.
Now I’m very tired, and looking forward to a good, uninterrupted sleep. There is no school tomorrow, no school until after the New Year.
