Another Friday has brought along a new Līgo Haibun Challenge.
This week is quote week again. I have chosen the following Russian proverb:
The church is near but the road is all ice; the tavern is far but I’ll walk very carefully.
I didn’t even bother to open the curtains. I could smell the snow from where I was lying beneath my warm duvet. I could smell it because I wanted to. The weatherman had forecast snow on the TV and from that moment onward this was going to be a sick day. A blue Monday. A white Monday actually. I dialed the number for work knowing I would get the answer machine. I left a croaky voiced message and hung up. I switched off my phone and curled up in the warmth. Total self indulgence today. My day. Fair excuse. No guilt. I lay planning my work- free time. After some well deserved lie in time I will take the camera out with me on a hike and see if I can add some good winter shots to my calendar to be. All shot on days off work. I might even give the boss a copy.
Easy to avoid
