Snow day today — well, snow morning, but we kept the kids home all day because what’s the point of a half-day? I finished my essay I’d started on the 2017 CanLit “appropriation debate” and am planning to send it off to a prospective journal in the morning. I got a great idea for a big talk I’ve been invited to give this spring, too. Tomorrow, back to dissertating. Tonight, reading on the couch and going to bed early. But first I have to bake a batch of peanut butter-oatmeal breakfast bars, because this is my life.
