I got the call at 6:15 AM to say that my place of employment was on a delay open. We usually open at 10 AM (and 6:15 AM was a little early to call) but with the 3" of snow covered with ice, it was decided that there would be a wait-and-see approach to opening.
Julia, my coworker, texted me to ask what the update on work was. She said she doesn't speak English at 6 AM. I gave her my update and called Judy back. She said to give her another hour to make a determination.
She called before that hour was up. The local university (which is a block and a half behind our store) closed, so she decided to close, too. HOORAY! A paid day off to putz around the house, load a bunch of CDs into iTunes (Pavement, CAKE, NIN, Blind Melon, Rusted Root, Squirrel Nut Zippers and onward to Porno for Pyros and Jane's Addiction and more) and cook up a pot of soup.
What soup am I cooking? It's called, "I'm making from what's in my cupboards and refrigerator!" We have turkey kielbasa, dried mixed beans, barley, corn, carrots, peas and half of a green pepper. I'll bust out a pan of cornbread and the world will be a delicious place.
