Snow is coming down fast out there today. I am not a fan of snow. Yes, I realize I live in Rochester NY where most winters see at least 3 ft of snow on one given weekend. I am JOYFUL that this is only our 3rd snowfall this season. I love those sunny 40 degree days and am filled with gratitude every time it happens. However I am trying to find the small joy in this morning.
Randy walks Mitchell to his bus stop every morning at 6:50 and then waits again with Ryan and Mitchell at 7:20 for their bus. Where am I usually? In my bed sleeping under warm flannel sheets. Do I feel guilty about this..NOPE. I battle the homework, meltdowns and dinner every night and do the bed time routines..all is fair. This morning however Randy had to be at work at 5:45 and as I mentioned before it is snowing!
I could grouch about getting out of my warm cocoon...but I looked at it this morning as a simple pleasure. Walked and talked to Mitchell about his day. Bundled the other kiddos up and also got spend a few calm moments with them.
The house is quiet. I put coffee on and made a quick cinnamon bread which is making the whole house smell warm. I am still in my jammies and I have on my favorite cardigan sweater. I have nothing ahead of me other than a warm breakfast, a lap full of yarn and the rest of The Vampire Diaries. Guilty pleasures indeed.
Sending you WARM sunny thoughts
