The Ice Storm
It’s tinkling down with high pitched dings, glistening, cold, beautiful, stark.
We are curled inside on a new sofa (finally!), all five of us, under quilts with the gas logs sparking warmth, reading “The Tale of Despereaux” before Goldilocks goes to see the movie with her class Friday. No school tomorrow. We are planning a book marathon–I hope the children cooperate and that my schedule allows it. It is a very enjoyable allegory for a wintry day. I also hope I have enough flour for us to bake some holiday sugar cookies…we’ve never done that. The kids just haven’t been old enough really.
We had simple ham sandwiches and chips for supper tonight. Meetings. Called The Hub’s Upward Team (Goldilock’s first year playing basketball).
Time for bed!
Did you hear me say that we were all five able to fit on the sofa to cuddle (pretty comfortbly)! Yeah!
