Mother Nature and the Snow Day

Destruction of tree limbs due to ice storm

The girls usually put a spoon under their pillows if there is an impending storm this is their ritual to bring on the beloved snow day… Well it worked!!   It was a finally a “snow day” , busses had been cancelled! No school!

I usually go to work, on snow days but yesterday I stayed home, we had received freezing rain over night and were still under a freezing rain warning so I made the choice to stay home.

I’m so glad I did.

It was one of the best days spent at home I’ve had in quite a while, weekends are usually quite busy driving here and there, house work, shopping, sleepovers, but not yesterday .  I actually got some baking done and did a little crafting I haven’t done that in such a long time and I forgot how much fun it was and how much I loved it.  The girls had a great day putting finishing touches on the Christmas tree and just lounging around and napping off and on all day.

There is just something special about a snow day so much better than a day off,  long weekend or holiday time.

It was a “take time to enjoy your day” day . 🙂

Thank you Mother Nature

Favorite book dealing with foreign culture

The Kite Runner is an unforgettable,heartbreaking, and deeply moving, story. I really enjoyed this novel. 🙂 You will find it hard to put down!

It takes place in Kabul and beginning just prior to the Russian invasion, The Kite Runner tells a heartbreaking story about the friendship between two boyhood friends who are as close as brothers, but also just happen to be master and servant.

Their relationship evolves over 40-year period and is forever marked by a moment in their youth when Amir, the privileged son, watches from safety while his friend  and caregiver Hassans life will change forever.
