On the first day of Christmas, we awoke to the soft, closeness of a snow-blanketed forest. A delightful little Christmas gift, no?
It is now nearly 3 in the afternoon and the snow has mostly stopped. The road is visible and some snow is melting, but it is still so lovely and bright outside. I'm tucked under a cozy comforter sipping chocolate-cherry hot cocoa (I'll share the recipe!) and nursing a flu. Yes, the same one the boys had earlier. Our dear little "E" (8 year old daughter) is also ill. So, we will enjoy just looking at the snow. The boys have been out, but only for a bit.
Not quite the way we expected the day after Christmas to be spent, but a quiet, lazy snowed-in day is nice.
How are my other east-coaster friends doing? I think there are some of you who have quite a bit of snow on the ground. White Christmas blessings to you all!
