snow day January 6th 2010

I know it's inconvenient when it snows.
when you can't get to work
when schools shut early or don't open at all
when deliveries don't come
when the car won't move

but I love it love it love it. even when it's iced over tomorrow and I struggle into the office, I'll be thinking of that special kind of red on my boys cheeks. the satisfaction of putting food out for the birds and the strange lunchbox contraption underneath that put off the big greedy pigeons. the snuggled up under a blanket with my slippers on, working, emailing, hearing the kids play and licencing myself to eat eat eat because we have to store up the fat.

thank you for this day
