On a day like this, then
we make ice art,
we remember the warmth of Summer and the abundance of Autumn, still sharing the garden with us.
We welcome old friends,
and we marvel at how much snow the back of a pick-up can hold!
Inside we paint and listen to some classical music radio,
and we are warmed by candle and firelight.
On days like these, I am thankful that I have my family at home, safe and warm, and that we have enough good nourishing food to sustain us. We have nowhere we need to be, but here.
My thoughts today are with all who must travel in these conditions. I hope your journey is safe and you are soon back in the warm.
