there was a lot of ice.  and drizzle.  and grey.
there was also warm tea.  and cocoa.

there was math for the kiddos.  history.  writing.  a wee bit of science.
all on a day when the local school district was closed due to ice.
yes, poor kids…homeschooling.  ice isn’t an issue.

there was connection felt as emails were exchanged
between homeschooling friends and online creative kindred souls.
there was a moment of wow and i felt my eyes fill.

there was warm broth and curly kale.
there were empanadas.

there were teeth that needed brushing.
and laundry that needed washing and drying and folding.

my husband went into work late because of the icy roads.
he used the suddenly-free morning hours to paint a room in the basement.
such a slacker, right?

was a day like so many others.
yet unlike so many others.

and now it is today.


how was your yesterday?   and how’s today?

sending a little love your way, m

  1. gorgeous photo, and beautiful poem :)…btw, glad you caught my attempt at shooting kale in instragram, I was thinking of you when I did it as your food shots are so wonderful and make me so hungry!!

  2. can’t believe i’m about to say this but yesterday was better than today. who’d have thought monday could beat a tuesday? feeling on the edge today, not sure why. on the plus side, this too shall pass.

    hope your tuesday is a lovely one.

  3. Yesterday was a Monday, too much paper work. Today we are heading to the mid 70’s and I’m leaving the work until later and getting outside.
    While I wish for wintery,cold weather this is what I’ve got so I am going to make the most of it.
    Have a beautiful day.
