Yesterday I put the vocabulary posters for the next stories on the board, and I left school on time after cheerful goodbyes at dismissal. This morning I slept late. I read from a novel (just for pleasure!) while I ate my cereal. Spring Break is starting, but it is chilly outside, and we are under a winter storm watch! Six to ten inches of snow is predicted to accumulate by Monday! It is even being called a Century Storm, although the forecasters seem to be hedging their bets, qualifying it by saying things could still change, the storm track is a little unpredictable.
I am on my way to the grocery to pick up a few things. My sister and I are planning a dinner and movie (DVD) at home tonight ahead of the storm. With the weather in mind, I’m thinking of comfort food- don’t you think steaming bowls of hearty beef stew and warm from the oven cornbread muffins sound just right?
