The first day of the month has arrived with a huge snow storm (and it's just getting going)... and sick kids. It was all brewing yesterday and now "Hello February, aren't you in fine form!"
But I'm prepared. My pantry is stocked. The wood bin is full. The art corner is ready... after a quick 6am pick up. I'm a homebody after all- hunkering down, keeping the fire burning, reading stories all day, making soup, steeping tea. I can do that! And as I paint you this picture of a snow covered farm house, with smoke curling up from the chimney and delightful cozy activity glowing from the windows, know that I will also have to find time to get some pressing work done. I plan on carving out snippets of time in between stirring golden lentil miso soup (my "cures what ails you stew"), helping to make 25 Valentine's day cards (might as well seize the moment), finding something for my son to read (because the library books were already devoured).
But right now, the day hasn't fully begun. I'm sipping my tea, writing to you, and watching the snow pile up around me...
