Booking Through Thursday: Snow Day

February 13, 2014

bookthursday This week’s Booking Through Thursday asks:

For most of the east coast, at least, it’s a wintry, snowy day today, so … How do you like to spend your snow days? Feel free to gloss over the obligatory parts like shoveling unless you LIKE it. We’re talking ideal, best way to spend a snow day kind of thoughts, here.

For those of you who live in places where snow days simply don’t happen? Feel free to substitute “snow” with “rain” and think about the kind of days when you just want to cuddle up inside where it’s warm and dry.

When I first looked out my window this morning, I was amazed at how thickly the snow was coming down. I got the notice last night that classes were canceled for the day, so I am planning to have a day where I do not put on shoes or venture out at all.

The best way to spend a snow day includes wearing comfy clothes, drinking tea or coffee, reading things, and possibly catching up on Sherlock.

My plans for today come reasonably close to the ideal.

  1. Do reading for classes. UX reading looks decently straightforward. We’ve got another book on deck for Digital Curation, so it’d be good to get a jump on that.
  2. Watch Sherlock.
  3. Figure out what website to use for UX Cognitive Walkthrough tests- it needs to be decently familiar website that anyone could click through and use to do a task. A bunch of websites are Right Out, though, because they require either creating a login, or logging in with some form of social media account. Must ponder.
  4. Edit Wikipedia entries about jazz and/or computer science.
  5. Drink lots of tea. In a fit of devotion to my local coffee shop, I got rid of my own coffee pot. Experiencing some regret of that decision at the moment. May have a one-cup machine lingering in the back of a cabinet somewhere… That would be good!
  6. Edit a thing I’ve been needing to edit since before the semester started, but then the semester started and… yeah.
  7. Laundry. Hopefully, the entire rest of my building is not having the same idea.

A cozy day of reading, albeit some of it dutiful and scholastic, television (does book-related television get extra points?)

Hope everyone else on the East Coast is cozy, safe and warm, and has room to enjoy a reading day!

    Good Morning, Elizabeth! I am doing mostly the same as you today on this snow day. I will be READING mostly. I have to catch up on my reading of THE MUSEUM EXPERIENCE REVISITED by John H. Falk and Lynn D. Dierking for Museum and Library Education Outreach class and A LESSON BEFORE DYING by Ernest J. Gaines for the NYBLC virtual book club discussion held in Google Hangouts on Saturday. I may take my break for soap operas today since the Valentine’s Day episodes air today and tomorrow. After the soaps go off at 3 PM, I plan on resuming my reading schedule.

    For me, snow days are fun days, since it doesn’t snow here in the Valley (except for a couple of times over the last 40 years I’ve lived here!). But we do get rain, although not enough. Here’s MY BTT POST

    You sound like you have a busy day planned, hope you can work some fun reading into the schedule today. Today I’m reading a book an author send me to read and review. Enjoy your snow day today.

    Sherlock and tea…Sounds like a plan to me! I hope you enjoyed your day and thanks for stopping by!
