Today I Love This Snow Day

snowy driveway

Today I love this snow day, the first real one we’ve had this year here in my home counties of Grey and Bruce. I love that the school buses aren’t running and the children are right now experiencing the free feeling of a gift of one day with sudden changes. I love that the snow days of my childhood taught me to hope and to challenge and to be always prepared for adventure. I love that when I think about it I owe a lot to snow days. I love that the snow has drifted across the drive and that I will have to go out and cut straight sides and clear off the parking spaces for us. I love that the plow has been by on the other side but has not returned on this side of our street and so I am procrastinating on clearing out the driveway because I don’t want to do it and be finished and then have the plow come back and fill the end in again. I love that in Canada we spell plow as “plough” though not everyone does anymore. I love that the words snow and plow aren’t pronounced the same, what’s up with that? I love that I am prepared to get things done today, though I am definitely feeling a little ill and infected. I love that I have the sniffles, it makes me think I’m cute.

Today I love that I will be making breakfast today, doing some laundry, moving some snow, doing some renovation work, and doing some cooking as well. I love being busy, even when I’m sick, I do not enjoy being still when there are things to be done. I love that I can keep myself still by reading or watching a movie, because in my mind I’m moving around. I love that there is lots to do and lots to watch and lots to read around here, no chance I’ll feel like I’m not busy today. I love that things will be done by this days end, accomplishments are comforting.

Today I love contemplating what fruit to put into the oatmeal that must be made soon. I love how good hot cereal is on cold mornings. I love how we make enough porridge to last for a week and just heat it up as we need it. I love that this house will soon be sorted out again and better than it was before.

Today I love drinking coffee while I prepare my self mentally and emotionally for the snow that must be moved.

Today I Love This Snow Day

Kelly Babcock

I was born in the city of Toronto in 1959, but moved when I was in my fourth year of life. I was raised and educated in a rural setting, growing up in a manner I like to refer to as free range. I live in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or more generations. I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 50 and have been both struggling with the new reality and using my discoveries to make my life better. I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about having ADHD and one that is a daily positive affirmation that acts as an example of finding the good in as much of my life as I possibly can.
