Come Back Tomorrow

Clouds in the Distance

I’m having a really good week over here.  I don’t say that to brag.  I know some of you are really having an awful time of it with the snow and the wind and the canceled flights.  I think my sister is probably still stuck in Chicago, where I hear that the cars are absolutely buried under snow.  People are abandoning their vehicles on Lake Shore Drive!  I’m sorry about all of that.  For what it’s worth, I sort of miss that kind of weather excitement, even though it meant trudging through the snow to get to the lab because you know, science stops for NOTHING!  Not even snow days.

This week I’ve convinced myself I might be onto something in the lab.  I had a terrific breakfast this morning (more about that soon, I promise!) and a wonderful catch-up talk with my best grad school friend.  This morning I saw snowflakes while waiting for the bus.  This evening I went for a run in the frigid cold—yes, it’s very cold here!—and came home to eat Roasted Broccoli and Tofu over rice, one of my favorites.  I’m enjoying a new book and cooking out of a new cookbook.  My new batch of Costa Rican coffee from It’s a Grind is completely delicious and is making my mornings terrific.

I even wrote half a blog post, and I hope to share the whole thing with you soon.  Come back tomorrow for a recipe, and try to pick up some cranberries if you aren’t snowed in yet.  Stay warm, dear readers!  And happy February.

~sigh~ science doesn't stop, and you can only plan around weather so much! i've been at work for each of harvard's three snow days thus far... and my week has not been so lucky! i can't wait for it to be over :)

Wow, that sounds rough, Shannon. Your commute must be a beast if you've had three snow days. (3!) But hey, good news: TGIalmostF!
