Yesterday I woke up to falling snow and the announcement that the Kansas City School District had closed schools for the day. SNOW DAY! (which we never had as homeschoolers, by the way)
So I drank coffee with Derek, talked about plans and dreams for the future, went for a walk through the snowy neighborhood, wrote a blog, looked through old photos with Derek, and ended the day with pancakes and eggs for dinner. The snow was still falling when we went to bed. I think it was one of the best, most relaxing days in a long time.
And this morning? The sun is shining but the newspaper is warning of high winds and frigid temperatures and schools are closed again. Time for some tea, laundry, and perhaps writing Christmas thank yous….
