It’s about 40 degrees out there! The air smells fresh and melt-y! Go outside!
Santa has come and gone, the reindeer are resting in their stables, and it’s time to finish up final grades. My two literature classes are waiting for me–I’ll do a little at a time over the next couple of days and get it all in before taking a couple of days’ break and diving into prep for the Spring 2009 semester.
But there’s no way I’m going to be inside all day today. I sensed it last night, when the snow was soft instead of squeaky under my feet. A little end-of-the-year thaw! Time to get out and distribute the couple of gift bags I have left on my table and finally make it back to the gym after a full week’s hiatus.
