Productivity….Derailed

wpid-20131208_133243.jpg

I had an idea forming at the back of my mind last night.  It was my plan for today.  It included the fiercest schedule of productive work you could imagine.  There were lists (my favorite), goals, research, achievements, and of course this blog to tie it all together, like a perfectly wrapped Christmas present-which was also on my list- “#4 wrap Christmas presents”.  I went to sleep early so I would be rested for my marathon of productivity.

I awoke to find gently falling snow.  Perfect little snowflakes swirling on the wind.  Settling down to dust the outdoors, with same expertise a baker would give her chocolate cheesecake, topped with a fine powdery dusting of sugar. The snow was such a wonderful surprise for me.  The weather man had talked about freezing drizzle, which for any commuter would mean a slippery adventure to work.

So I did what any snow lover would do.  I made myself a cup of tea, turned on every Christmas light inside and outside of the house, drew the curtains back, settled in to my comfy chair in front of the fire and set my book on top of my “to do” list.  🙂  I will be productive a little later.

  1. You painted such a wonderful picture, I am so envious. I would love to be able to see those soft lace-like flakes falling through the air, settling on my nose and hair….Thank you for bringing back that memory so vividly. Susan x
