snow day (slowing down)
We went to bed last Friday night anticipating a big snow overnight. Excitement in the Midwest is the possibility of thunderstorm. As we haven't had much of a winter season, we are were looking forward to the white stuff but more than anything I was hoping for an excuse to stay put all weekend long and just unwind.
Saturday morning we awoke to the best alarm of them all - Cowgirl arriving for some morning cuddles. I could see a glow around the curtains - that magical white haze that suggests the day is on pause. Opening the curtains we were greeted by this sight:
A good day is one where the bed never gets made because someone is lounging in it -
There is time for nurturing body (hot lemonade with honey) -
And soul (snow people = smiles)
There is ample time to feed creativity (a fun SoulCraft made for the Winter SouLodge - my mama bear mask) -
Lots of snacks (because lounging and play require much fuel)
And the perfect ending to a totally indulgent and needed day: spa time with my best girl.
This week we have a guest staying with us and he astutely observed that you cannot see where the land ends and the sky begins.
One of the reasons why I love living here - even if I have to sloughed through days like this:
I know there will be more days where I will be surrounded by wide, blue skies.
An excellent reminder that life is like that and I just need to appreciate the fog and the grey for it always brings sunshine and possibility in its wake.
