It finally happened! After chanting over and over “just one big snow storm before Spring, please”, we finally woke up this morning to a winter wonderland and NO SCHOOL!
Our pantry is stocked and ready for baking. Our marshmallows and cocoa are sitting on the counter, ready to greet rosy cheeks and noses cold from sledding and snowball making. The DVD player is fired up to run Harry Potter all day if necessary. And as an added bonus, The Hubby gets to work from home because it should continue snowing all day and could possibly leave us with a foot of the gorgeous white stuff.
Even though I’m averse to the cold part of it, there is something about clean white snow blanketing the earth that gives me a sense of renewal and hope. It’s a clean slate waiting to be written upon.
It’s going to be a great day at our house. I hope the same for you.
By next week, it will be 60 degrees here. Now that we’ve had our snow, I give Spring my full permission to come.
