Contented Snowy Saturday

I am enjoying a quiet, pleasant, slow-paced Saturday at home with my wonderful cats, Thelma and Louise. The snow is ever so slowly drifting down, and I occasionally glance out the window, wondering how long it will be falling, and how much will accumulate. I will listen to my beloved Prairie Home Companion at 6, then at 8, when it ends I will watch my equally beloved British sit coms on our local PBS station. I enjoy my job, but my work days are often fast-paced and hectic and demand all my attention and thought. This kind of day is a welcome relief. Days like this make me long for retirement, but I have to wait several more years for that happy time.
