I am predicting that we will have our one and only snow day of the winter this Friday.
and that it probably will be ice rain instead of snow. Delightful. Inches and inches of ice. Well, maybe not that bad. I remember living in Nebraska one winter and, well, it was that bad. Inches of ice topped with inches of snow. I thought it would never end.
Tomorrow we will not have inches of ice. It doesn't take inches of ice to close schools and leave me house bound wishing that I was sitting before a fire place with a crackling fire and a great book.
Instead, I will turn on the furnace and spend the day attempting to find silence and peace in a small space with a child that is going through a "talkative" phase. This phase includes constant and continuous, at a fairly loud volume, mostly meaningless chatter.
In order to maintain my sanity (and if you doubt that this will be a challenge, then I dare you to try hanging out in such conditions for a prolonged period of time!) I will require and desire diversions.
Lots of diversions!
Although I have a few things that I can do... finish the Diva's calendar and continue working on her book for the upcoming holiday season, I am craving a writing challenge. A creative writing challenge that is.
And so, I am seeking input from you.
Any and all ideas are greatly appreciated... whether it be questions to answer, song titles or lyrics or even famous quotes upon which I can ponder and wax poetic... you name it. All ideas are welcome!!
I beg of you, help me maintain my sanity! I don't want to end up in a comatose state, staring out the window watching the ice build up on wires and railings.
