My new daily routine involves lots of hot drinks, usually tea, often coffee, and sometimes hot chocolate. If there's Baileys, so much the better.
We had a "pollution day"—similar to a snow day, but instead of a blanket of snow on the ground, there's a blanket of smog in the sky—on Tuesday and while I wasn't exactly happy about it, I didn't mind the opportunity to fulfill my longings for maximum coziness. I told Tony before I went to sleep Monday night, "I'm going to have Baileys in each of my hot drinks tomorrow." And with the exception of a cup of tea, I did. I also watched many episodes of Friends; had a long, hot shower, complete with loud music and a Corona; played Risk (and won!); and ate hot pot that was delivered to our apartment. If that's not the definition of cozy then I don't know what is.
Things that made me happy this week—other than being cozy (how many times can I write the word cozy in this post?):
+ Crossing much-procrastinated tasks off my to do list.
+ Standing up for myself, on more than one occasion.
+ My manicure, still.
+ A hot bath with this.
+ A student saying, "I'm still a little sick, but I really wanted to come to school!"
+ Watching students practice for the winter concert. I'm convinced there's nothing sweeter or more cheerful than that.
+ Sticking my finger up T's nose. Long story, but it was hilarious!
