go home, one last christmas celebration, and ‘free’
posted by soe 12:08 am

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. We had early dismissal due to a winter storm on Tuesday afternoon. Those of you who live in snowy places will be amused, but in part such caution has to do with the long distances people commute here and the prevalence for icy highways. At least two major roads shut down due to jack-knifed tractor trailers. I, on the other hand, spent the end of my workday napping after walking home in the rain via the bagel shop.

2. Rudi and I celebrated “Little,” or Orthodox, Christmas this week. (His mom was born in Russia.) Rudi made borscht and we exchanged a few last gifts.

3. I used up the last of my use-it-or-lose-it healthcare savings account fund just before year’s end and today the box arrived. Opening it felt like a very practical Christmas present, in part because the money was deducted from my paycheck before I ever saw it and it felt free. We are set for contact solution, sunscreen, and bandages for a while.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?
