I had figured that my lunchtime task would be shoveling, but then a few hours into the morning a trio of teenaged boys knocked on my door and politely asked if I'd like my walk and driveway shoveled. Fifteen dollars is not a trivial amount of money, and I could have easily done it myself.... but on the other hand I like the idea of kids trying to earn money. I like encouraging that sort of thing, and this way I can stay warm and cozy until I feel like going out tromping later on.
So my car is safely tucked in its garage, my driveway and walk are shoveled, and I have to dial into my next conference call. Also, it's friday. Not a bad day so far!
