|We woke to snow this morning!|
For the lack of accumulation, that is, because I like snow, at least when I can stay home. Today, I stayed home. I washed clothes. I cleaned off the dining table, which had collected a month's worth of mail and just plain junk. I began the tax return. I baked brownies. Snow brings out my domesticated side.
|The snow has gotten heavier as the day goes on.|
Maybe I should bake bread to go with the spaghetti.
See???? It's the snow! I realize our friends in the Midwest are sick of it, but, here in the South, it's a treat. There is something magical about a snow. Time seems to slow and silence blankets the landscape. Although I can see my neighbors' houses in the distance, I feel blessedly alone, and focused on my own little corner of the world.
|The snow accumulates |
for a moment, and then
Tomorrow, it begins again, my responsibilities to my family and community, but today I feel my exhausted body and spirit gathering strength as I watch the snow fall.
How are you living your Savory life?
