One Day Later

Yesterday's garden... parsley still happy in its pot. Heather and primroses and promises of spring.

This morning we awoke to a snowstorm and 6" has fallen. There were cross-country skiiers on the soccer field. Dogs doing crazy donuts. Our dog Boomer couldn't get enough of the snow - as soon as he came in, he cried until I let him go out again. Norris stopped to help the elderly neighbors who were having a tough time wheeling their trash cans to the curb. Traffic was stopped and there were many cars in the ditch on the "S" curve just outside our neighborhood.

Me? I just stayed home and made chili, shoveled the walk, dealt with some paperwork, and had a snow day, one of life's unexpected pleasures.
