It's been a few weeks since I celebrated here, even though I HAVE done quite a bit of celebrating!
It has been a long, exhausting, and at times frustrating first week back from a long and wonderful winter vacation; yet, I need to celebrate that in spite of the challenges, there were some great moments worth celebrating!
First, I've had a cold, the kind that is just enough to be totally annoying and not enough to give you "permission" to stay home. No fever, no malaise, just a nose that runs and runs like a faucet with a worn out washer! Just a filled up in the head cough that could rattle your bones. I could blow and blow...(sorry, TMI) Well likely you know.....and I look a lot like Rudolph (left behind) when Santa returned to the North! Thus, I want to celebrate the magical healing, make-you-fell better qualities of wonderful, fresh brewed hot tea (with lemon). While Mucinex and Robitussin have there value, Harneys is the best medicine for a good old winter cold!

Last, I did NOT get one this week (thus the driving in the snow) but I still value and celebrate the wonder and images of snow days. They were once the perk of being a teacher; however, in our modern day world, we teachers COMMUTE through the snow and all those lucky enough to be able to WORK FROM HOME take advantage of the miracle of the internet. SO, while I did not "get one" this week, I still appreciate and celebrate the wonder and beauty of staying in PJs, drinking hot tea all morning, working from home, and napping as needed!
