a bright and shiny snow day

i was quite disappointed at 4pm yesterday thinking that all the snow 
warnings were bust. but then a nice steady sprinkle of flakes developed and 
by bedtime our homeplace was covered in lovely sparkling blanket. 

i am usually home on wednesdays with tristan, 
but it was pretty fun having tashi join us for the day!

i feel far more balanced if our virginia winter doles out at least one decent snow event. 
this was pretty minimal,  but it certainly satisfied some snow lust!

there must be at least one decent snow day food spread enjoyed 
in front of the wood burning stove

ours included turkey meatballs, tzatziki, hummus, carrots, greek olives, 
and some cumin rice fried in coconut oil. 

everyone was pleased, including the cats basking in their sun puddles.

and while it certainly is very cold outside, i'm glad that it is encouraging the snow 
cover to remain through the week. it is often just a little depressing when, after a snowfall,  your carefully assembled snowperson turns to a puddle by midday!

what are your favorite things about a snow day?
