“Just Jot It January #21–Excitement is in the Air” by Linda Martin Andersen
I accepted a challenge for January: Just jot a note and submit. I can’t participate every remaining day this month, but I will join in when I can.
I decided to create a theme to write about:
Today, I Celebrate Excitement is in the Air.
Our area has talk of possible winter precipitation and here in the south that means there’s excitement’s in the air. Will there be a snow day.? A day off from school? A delayed opening? Will there be a chance to build a snowman, go sledding, etc.?
Last night a friend in the Piedmont area saw snow. We got sleet. This morning, the ground is clear. The weather report? Precipitation should begin before 5 a.m. tomorrow morning. And for that reason, there’s excitement in the air, although I hope we’re spared the blizzard some places are expected to receive. In other words, less is better!
- Winter weather can add excitement to the air. What other things do too?
- Have you ever been so excited about something that you thought you would burst? Tell about it.
- Why do you think we say “excitement is in the air” instead of excitement rests on the ground?
- When would you say, “less is better?”
