After weeks of relatively warm weather, Cleveland has finally frozen over again. Several inches of snow are on the ground and more is expected tomorrow. Single digits temperatures for the next couple weeks.
I've been sighing about this state of affairs for the past few days, but today I decided to look on the brightside: It's my perfect excuse.
I'm actually not very adventurous. I don't like to "go out" or "be sociable" very often. (Sure I hang out with you—but you don't count as people. If you know what I mean.)
Sometimes, I have a hard time saying no to a social engagement. It's hard to admit that you'd rather read/nap/knit/watch TV than be amongst masses of humanity. But with the cold and the snow and the ice ... I don't have to make up an excuse! I can just shrug it off, mumbling something about the crappiness of winter .... and smiling inside because I'm in the middle of a really great book, and there's a new Office on tonight.
