Ah, being stranded is not so bad. HOW TO MANAGE: FREE ADVICE According to Mary Anne.
- Weather watch. Big snowflakes, small snowflakes, wet snowflakes, big ice pellets, no ice pellets. Enjoy the thrill of green/brown grass turn white, as it happens or over night. Now, that’s a real life Miracle!
- Kick back in a comfy chair where you can weather watch through the window, not from outside. Patio lounging is out. Warm and comfy is the rule. Make a mug of hot chocolate, turn on the radio to the Jazz station and listen to the collision reports on the QEW/401. Thankful, that we are not involved and standing in the cold, waiting for a tow.
- And then, when you need something to do to keep away the boredom of watching snow fall, you can deep clean the back closet, and don’t forget the farthest corner under the sink. Heaven knows, maybe even attack the clothes closet. The local clothes donate box may be thankful of a Gifty. Do you really need that blouse that is so pretty, but you haven’t been able to wear for 10 years? Too much thinking, too many decisions.
- Break time, some eggnog with added extras. Is there leftover cheesecake?
- Back to watching snow fall and thinking. Oh my, is the wood box full in case of power outage, I must check……..do I have enough food cooked? Is there fuel for the chain saw in case of big tree limbs falling? The generator for the furnace fan………..oh my, oh my, am I prepared?
NOW Me, I’m going to knit myself a new hat. 👍with the cat sitting by my side. Cleaning will wait……….cooking too. Then, there is my collection of unread paperbacks; a Michael Connolly one just waiting for me.
Life is OK, watching snow fall.
In a day or so, the sun will shine, the landscape will be white and beautiful. The roads will be ploughed and all is good again.
