Snow day!!

“It is better to play than do nothing.”  –Confucious

Lola & Beau ascribe to this philosophy, so when we awakened this morning to a mantle of white, they eagerly headed out the door.

We haven’t had any of the white stuff since our October blast (no, that isn’t a typo–our last (really only) big storm of the season came a few days before Halloween and dumped some 22″ on us.  

Since then, nada.  Other than an occasional dusting, it’s been a very quiet winter….until today!

Today we’re getting a decent storm (between 8″ and 10″ at last count) and the kids are lovin’ it.  Lola Bug was sporting her leopard print fleece (animal prints are still very ‘in’ you know), and Beau was working on his snow angels. (He’s still got a ways to go….)

As I watched these two play this morning, I was reminded of how life really is about the simple pleasures: that special quiet that envelops the world during a snowstorm; the invigorating feel of fresh, cold air streaming into your lungs; the delight that comes in blazing a virgin trail through fresh powder.  It’s a great way to spend the day.
