Three snow days in a row. You'd think I'd take advantage of the time and do some writing. But I'm not feeling inspired. I'm not sure why. Twenty-some inches of snow is beautiful...and a great depth for building snowmen, snow forts, tunnels, and whatever else you can think of. But put a shovel in your hand or try to get to work without having an accident, and the fun and beauty start to fade. Even those with snow blowers are finding the work tiring, hard, and tedious.
Just today, my daughter came in from shoveling with cheeks that resembled big red tomatoes, and my hubby was a few steps behind with icicles in his beard. My kids who usually love snow days are finding themselves a bit stir crazy and actually WANTING to go back to school as soon as possible. (Could they go to night school TONIGHT?) My kids love to play in the snow. They are often my inspiration as they will come in and out several times during a heavy snowfall. But this week has gotten to even them, and they are now tapping their toes, counting down until they can go back to school! In the meantime, I'll post some fun pictures of when they WERE having fun.
