It snowed last Saturday. Serious snow, snow that shut us in for the day.
Most years, we get one or two snow days like that. A few years ago, I decided to count such a day as a respite, a day to restore my soul. It is tempting to see it as an opportunity to attack the to-do list. But the necessary work will somehow get done, and the combination of fresh snow and quiet pleasures renews my spirit.
