The storm has kept us all home while we wait it out and clean up. Tomorrow, my husband will likely go back to work, and I will settle back into the winter routine. But these couple days are a delightful break in stride..for me anyway, Seth has had to split wood and snowblow yet again. But we are all making pretty project - fabric birds for a baby-shower, a cover for the down comforter from my old silk-skirts, and crayon sketches of ‘pretty’ and ‘wow’ to be admired by all.
Life is good and glad, and joyful, despite a quiets sense of mourning for our beloved Pope, who retreats to well earned quiet today. Our tiny church sends out prayers for him and his successor.
