snow day Saturday

(art & text above from Winter Trees, written by Carole Gerber and illustrated by Leslie Evans)
Children rejoice, parents relax, dogs frolic, then nap and nap. Outside is a pristine white canvas, an invitation to a fresh start, to begin again. Footsteps appear, marking a path from one friend's house to another, to where a cup of this is borrowed, and a cup of that. A few simmering hours later, there's soup for all. For a moment in time, nowhere to go or be - nor wanting to - except right here.

Your soups are always good, Very Turly Julie. Especially that Italiany somethingy. Hope all of you had a fun family day.
